Why? I've watched both versions and I agree with LAG.LAG, based on your post I'm not sure if I believe you've watched either show, lol.
The USA isn't the only place in the world with television, you know.Rallying has 10 times the TV-viewership as Nascar? Wut?
An explaining what Rallying is could have been better.
YES to all of that.Sorry, but putting a shitty filter on video doesn't make it better. Quite frankly I'm sick to death of the played out and cliched vignette put on nearly every "film" on TGUK. The video was color corrected (graded) just fine for this episode. It was clear, showed off the locale and showed off the vehicles in all their glory. Editing tricks and effects were kept to a minimum.
This was probably the best race filmed in any iteration of Top Gear. For one, it looked completely legit. I'm positive there were plenty of pickup shots as there needs to be for races like this, but overall it was seamless and I had no idea who was going to win. It also had a real sense of danger which I never get on TGUK. Tanner almost clipping the edge of that cliff, Rut going 130 on a tight highway plus getting nailed by rocks from Tanner, and Adam going 120 on a river. All it takes is a single floating log to flip one of those jet boats. It also helped that I grew up in that area so it was fun to see the famed jet boats on Top Gear that I used to watch race up the Clearwater River.
Gave the ep a 10 for the race alone. It was lacking a bit of humor in the beginning segments.
Yeah, but even here in Finland, TV coverage for WRC is only a 10 minute highlights-program per rallyday and 1-hour-highlights on cable. That is on the same cable channel which shows 3-hour Nascar races live. :/The USA isn't the only place in the world with television, you know.
Very very few outside the US care about Nascar.
Is WRC still on Eurosport? That's the channel all the WRC torrents I used to get were on.Yeah, but even here in Finland, TV coverage for WRC is only a 10 minute highlights-program per rallyday and 1-hour-highlights on cable. That is on the same cable channel which shows 3-hour Nascar races live. :/
