I won't get overly complicated with this review. I won't tell you this show has potential, just keep watching. I won't bother mentioning it's shot very well. I will just tell you one word...
Seven laps (ie: episodes) into America's first season of Top Gear racing, the standings are as follows... With an easy lead and first place, Top Gear UK is the king of the lot. A princely runner up and second place, goes to our Aussie friends down under... and not really in the race is Quasimoto (aka Top Gear USA) riding his tricycle in the parking lot.
The production value is there. The guys are likable and have pretty good chemistry. However, it needs to find it's own voice and soul. It's like having watched the Godfather and then watching it again, but recast with someone else. All the pieces may be just as good, but it doesn't fit together.
The bottom line, if TG US takes off the training wheels and makes it out of the parking lot (ie: the first season), it does have potential.
