you obviously did not understand the challenge at all. they were looking for a CAR as an alternative to the pick-up truck. you have a full-sized van and a Jeep Cherokee 2 door, which doesn't qualify for this challenge. pay attention.I'm convinced the worst part of 2X01 was that all three cars had California registration! My gosh, don't these yahoos know that if you want a car that runs in Texas, then buy in Texas?
It took me precisely three minutes to come up with three local cars that are not only more appropriate, but more entertaining as well!
And no, I have no financial interest in any of the three cars above!
cry me a river. you act like they actually painted an American flag on the pavement, did donuts and burn-outs, and pissed on it when they were finished. guess what, it's a still a "graphic". made by a device called a "computer", which does weird a crazy things when on "television". and yes, i do know that defamation of an American Flag is wrong, but so is killing another person...yet people still do it, and some get away with it too. so don't over-analyze every single, stupid detail, and just let it be. this was made with the best of intentions, and if you can't (or refuse) to see it, i suggest not watching it anymore. just made that very simple for you...Oh and one more thing, and I'm dead serious here.
There are many people where I love who would consider that opening slide more than offensive.
You do not....under any circumstances...stand on the American flag.
Yea, lots of folks outside of the U.S. don't understand why we are the way we are about the flag...and that's fine. But whomever came up with this graphic has no concept about how NASCAR country feels about the Stars and Stripes.
I also don't like the delivery of the challenges -- or non-delivery.
I get the labcoat-guy thing is British and comes from other UK shows and they needn't do that, but there needs to be some schtick. How about make the Stig deliver the challenges, try to incorporate him. I always loved when TG UK did that a few years ago, such as including him in the race across London or when they have him delivered somewhere as cargo. They are missing out on a lot of comedy.
this may sound "mean-spirited", but i like to see a balled-up paper with the challenge written on it to be thrown at one the guys' head off camera. i would have a chuckle if a producer throws them a crumpled piece of paper at them just off camera. a lot better than a "man in a white coat" handing them a envelope.
