I have to say, I'm American, and this looks nowhere near as awesome as Top Gear is. The jokes aren't even funny...& where are Clarkson, May, and Hammond? I'm disappointed in America. But I'll be interested in seeing cars that they actually sell in the US, which is nothing, but still.

First off, the people who say this show is flat should watch the first few seasons of the current edition of the British Top Gear. They're predominantly slow and kind of boring. It took them a few years to really get good. To expect three new people to jump into that format and make it just as good immediately is stupid.
That said, the narration was incredibly boring. I know the presenters have personalities because a little bit of that comes through on camera, but they need to inject some of that into the narration. It seems that all shows in the United States think that it's necessary for narration to be flat and factual.

i agree with smith, the first 2 seasons of top gear were sooooooo dry. that being said why is everyone complaining? ohh no we get another car show to watch! even if its mildly entertaining to watch itll be a plus cause there are no car shows here in the US. i agree it prolly wont be as good as the original, but that still doesnt mean it cant be good. i dont now if anyone here saw the clip of them getting $1000 to buy the best car for moonshine running. it was pretty entertaining and looks like the producers are trying to put some of that top gear quirkiness into the show with american flare and heritage.

Boring, politically correct, white sense of humor and comments. Original Top Gear wanna-bes.

@AugustoS EXACTLY! Rubbish detector is blaring. Maybe they will also get pulled over by "policemen" on bicycles. Or are they really policemen?

take away the accents, the wittiness, the awesome locations, and much better cars, and you get this piece of crap. I don't care what stupid Americans think about European cars, especially when we know barely half of what there is to know about exotics compared to Europeans. There's probably 20 or so true American exotic models for sale today, and what, probably close to 200 or more Europeans. I'd say let the pros handled the show.
