I didn't particularly like Adam during season 1, but I absolutely loved him this episode.I do like this Episode. For me, they're really getting on to something. And, unlike most, i don't dislike Adam. He's needed, because he always brings the crappiest cars
8 for me
Nothing felt forced between them. Everything just flowed naturally. I said in another thread that it took 24 episodes for the UK guys to get to the point that the US hosts did in five episodes. Now the US guys have just taken another quantum jump. The relationship here is fast approaching Season 6 of TGUK. If people just abandon the belief that the hosts' relationship has to be of the same nature as the UK hosts and appreciate the US hosts' relationship for what it is, something a lot more American, then the criticism may end.Challenges can be good, challenges can be daft, but what's going to make or break this show is the hosts -- and they all were fantastic in this episode.
Edit:I thought last nights episode was hopeless TBH.
However, it did make me laugh once (which is 1 more time than I laughed all of season 1).
They didn't have a SIARPC (or BSSC), nor did they have a track test of a car.
45 minutes of only one segement; doesn't cut it for me.
Production team seems to be good.
I've always liked Tanner, and I don't mind the other two, but I don't think any of them are funny.
So far, the highlight of U.S. Top Gear was the Evo vs Skiers challenge IMO.
I will still watch every week, and I hope it gets better, but for now, it just doesn't work for me.
i got bored and went to the NSFW section of the forum halfway through.... not impressed. needs "jessica" as the opening theme, and the way the torrent was chopped made my head hurt!I don't really think this was worthy of a full episode. I think they could have shortened it a bit, especially the boring cattle part, and instead stuck in a short regular review.
I blame TGUK for that. There seems to be a direct correlation between cocking about and ratings that they're always trying to push. The show is only partly about cars anymore, since those parts don't appeal to the largest audience group. TV in America kinda sucks when it comes to that. They decide if a show will be renewed or canceled within 10 minutes of the first episode airing. If they didn't use a strong "cocking about" episode for their season premier, the audience numbers may not have been high enough for the executives at the History channel. Better to try and start strong with one of their more "entertaining" episodes, than with some boring episode that's actually about cars.meh it was alright, but I think they made a mistake by...starting the season with a "special".
