Trivia

Season 1 and 2 of Top Gear USA closely followed the format of it's British counterpart, this included filming segments in front of a live studio audience. And like the BBC's Top Gear, the show also had it's own test track on an abandoned airstrip that was located on the defunct U.S. Marine Corps Air Station "El Toro" located in Irvine, CA. See more »

Absolute garbage
24 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This show is an abomination. The hosts know nothing about cars, have no chemistry whatsoever, and the "challenges" are boring and uninteresting. How this show continues to remain on the air is a mystery to me. I'll admit I watched the first season in hopes that we've finally come up with a decent American version of a fantastic show. Sadly I was disappointed, and it doesn't look like their chemistry or the writing has gotten any better.

It's impossible for the US to produce a good show like the original. The BBC is publicly funded and the presenters have no qualms or reservations speaking their mind. The US version doesn't have that luxury, as I'm sure there's plenty of big wigs directing their commentary.

Watching this show is the equivalent of watching 3 robots programmed to speak by people with nominal car knowledge. I'd rather stare at the wall for an hour instead of watch this junk.

Save your time and just watch the UK version.
