Painfully bad
2 March 2013 | by (Santiago, Chile) – See all my reviews

I began to watch the show in History Channel last year, and to be honest, I never liked it. The presenters always gave me the general impression of being reading a cue card, the interviews seem forced, the humor is horrible, no chemistry at all between them. They do not know about cars, period.

Then, on the History Channel website, I read that it is based on a British show, and just out of curiosity, I looked it up on Youtube. After all, UK show are ALWAYS orders of magnitude better than their USA remakes (Coupling, Primeval, Life on Mars, and sorry, even House of Cards come to mind). Later, a friend told me it was on Netflix. And, Oh, my God! After having watched the UK version, I could not believe how badly HC botched a magnificent show! The knowledge, the humor, the cinematography, the interviews, the sheer panache of the presenters, did the USA producers even bothered to look a single UK episode? Do you honestly believe the USA show doing something the Bolivia Special, or the Arctic Expedition, for example? They even lack originality! Most of USA challenges are watered down copies of the UK version, and not even half funny. Face it, the USA presenters will never be able to say "You are a imbecile of apocalyptic proportions" with the straight face of James May.

I will add an additional issue : the dubbing. Being in Chile, we receive the programs dubbed to Spanish, no SAP available. History Channel dubbing are generally bad, but in this case, it seems they made an additional effort to make it worst.

So, I will stick to the UK version. The US version just sucks.
