‘Top Gearski’ for Russia
Talking about milking the cow.......
This is plain wrong.
Well I dunno yet. At the one hand I'm quite scared that it will ruin the good vibes I feel now whenever I watch a TG episode. Even Aussie TG (even though I have only seen 2 episodes yet) seems to have got the essence of TG, which is more about male cameraderie and cocking about than about cars.
I sincelery hope the Ruski version shadows this. I shall be watching a couple of episodes before I make my final judgement though
This pretty much sums up my thoughts:
Even if it's "good", I think cultural differences will get in the way of us being able to stand watching it. But who knows...[Tue 08:01:13] <%Hidden_Hunter> lol, people thought tg au was bad
[Tue 08:01:16] <%Hidden_Hunter> tg rus

We'll do our best to put out a rip.
not the cultural differences but the Russian language. If there will be downloads of this series than please with subtitles.
This should be... interesting.
What is next, Top Gear China? Buick vs. Chery?
Hmm.. time for a new forum section?
The big barrier will be the language I think, I am hoping it will have a certain charm, will depend upon the presenters. If subtitles are avaialble, or one or more of our Russian speakers on the forum could do them that would be really cool.
I think they are jumping on the bandwagon. I expect you all to be rick-rolled in a day or too
^ Top Gear are too cool for Rickrolling though.
You guys still have a hard time buying it, hah. I didn't even bother trying out TGA so I will give this a miss too, but come on, stranger things have happened (e.g. Bush/Cheney 2004).
We'll definitely need subs if they really make it. No matter how bad, I would at least watch the first season.
"The Dacia Sandero lapt the ring in 5 min!" - Mr. Medjedev says it lapt it in 1.03 min.! - "The Dacia Sandero lapt the ring in 1.03 min.!"
But should be interesting. And I think more interesting and entertaining then the Australian rip off. And I don't thing subtitles will help understand Russian humour. Good thing I understand them! If the presenters will be right and they will not try to copy TG UK everyone should laugh their asses off

Who will be the first guest? My guess is Xenia Onnatop.
She is a real figure, correct?
Wow, they were serious about this thing? It's a mighty strange venue, I have to say.
Russian episodes starts in February
Whoa, this is for real?? Did not see that coming. And, er, can't say I'm optimistic about it...
