Where did you see the "real" pilot with Adam Carolla? I remember Jalopnik offering a bounty but never heard anything after that.Voted a 1
Sucked badly, much worse than the "real" pilot episode shot with Adam Carolla...even if Tanner was in that one too. Sad, sad, sad. I didn't even get through the viper film and I can't watch anymore.
Thanks bro, it would have been cool to be on Top Gear but the good news is I've got something else pretty big in the works, so we may end up skirting US Top Gear entirely and going our own route, again. If it all works out, you guys should be very pleased with the results.I was actually thinking about that earlier. Not Matt going to TopGear, but just how good The Smoking Tire is, with an even smaller budget than TGUSA.
I was at the taping in LA back a few years ago. I would LOVE to see the final version of that pilot, but even with Jalopnik offering up some cash I don't think it was ever released. My wife and I were on camera a lot, right behind Carolla when he was interviewing the SIARPC.Where did you see the "real" pilot with Adam Carolla?

This is the point of it, not throwing Clarkson, Hammond and May's show in the copier and hitting the 'regionalize' button. If Faust, Wood and Fererra can develop a bit of chemistry, learn to play off each other instead of trying to play a part, for a scripted show and just have fun, it'll do great.I may go so far as to say TG USA and TG Australia are on par with TG UK because (brace yourselves) it's about three guys having fun with cars. Not trying to copy the UK boys, not trying to forge their own way, but hold true to the Top Gear values of cocking about with anything they can.
They haven't really had time to become friends.Full agreement with Tromoly and NOHC. But one major thing I feel is missing. These three are not friends, TG Australia has started to get better because those three has started to at least act as friends.
Ferrar is a stand up comedian, and from what I'v eheard from peoel at the TGUSA tapings, he's really very funny on his own, keeping the crowd entertained.I think they could all do better if they did get some proper coaching for acting and comedy.
