    Not as Good as the UK Version

    The American Top Gear isn't nearly as good as the UK version with James, Richard and Jezza. Still Adam, Rutledge and Tanner are all fantastic. I guess the biggest problem is lack of originality and the lack of humor that the UK version boasts. As for the lack of humor I guess it comes down to the US version worrying too much about offending people and recieving complaints as the UK Top Gear does all the time. Still I think the US version of Top Gear is a fun and entertaining show to watch.

    A lot like the BBC version. Not quite through all of the discs yet but am happy that I got it.

    The whole season is in one snap case, which was nice. The US version just isn't as great as the UK version. Wanted to give it a try though.

    I watched the first few episodes of the second season and I watched a few seasons of the UK version before I bought this. I was surprised at how much 15 minutes takes out of the show, which is one of the down sides of having a us version. Sometimes it seems rushed with the limited time frame. But I would have to say the US version gets better as it goes and even better in the second season, but I would suggest not passing on the first season. There are a lot of parallels to the UK version in the first season, but you can tell the presenters are still getting use to each other and trying to branch out from the UK version. Why branch out? Personally I loved the UK version because the British are naturally blunt, which works and really gives the series personality. Unfortunately, here in the US people can voice there opinions loud enough to get a show cancelled because it "goes to far." So, without that the show can become boring, but the thing that saved it was the challenges. Whats more American than competing in challenges and being able to say, "You suck and I'm the man." Also, the interviews with the stars (Big Star, Little Car) is different and not for promoting up and coming movies its about getting to know them a bit and seeing if they can kick butt around the track. Your money will be well spent if you like the UK version, but be warned some segments have been redone and no blunt British humor makes the show start out slow, but by the end you will love it.
