Want to join me in a neg-repping fiasco :lol:? So tempted to neg-rep every negative thing said. These people have already "seen" the pilot and are forming a very good conclusion as to what the show is like. Classic .I dont think i've ever been so angry/frustrated over a stupid internet forum in my entire life.
How can you all be so stupid as to already make up your mind about something you know absolutely nothing about?
This isnt an american made show, its a top gear knockoff from the creators of top gear, broadcast on an american network.
Count me in as "cautiously excited"
There is some silly stuff being said in this thread. Lets not be dumb here. Mistakes that NBC won't make with "Gear":
- Only reviewing American cars
- Only liking American cars
- Only testing in the 1/4 mile
- Only turning left
Mistakes that might happen though:
- Poor choice in presenters
- Bad chemistry between presenters
- Letting advertisers get their grubby paws on it
- Not letting them speak their minds
Regardless, here are a few things I hope to see and can't wait to:
- American stars in a reasonably priced car
- What the reasonably priced car will be
- What the new Stig will be like
- More friendly to aftermarket mods
If we can quit bashing a show that doesn't exist yet, maybe we can get back to the wild speculation about it.
Amereica can make great things (the Boeing 747, the Saturn 5, the SR-71 Blackbird, the ES44AC etc.), but let's face it, when it comes to cars, America is hopeless. I know some people here will disagree with me, but that's the truth.
The show needs to be about 3 blokes and cars.
Nonetheless, I'm sure it will be rubbish... but ill still watch it.
Christopher Titus is an unfunny hick, just like Tim Allen, Chip Foose etc. But those are the kind of people they'll probably get, in order to appeal to middle-American Chevy driving white trash.
Actually, I've just realized:
Jay Leno is retiring some time this year. Jay Leno, presenter?
That would secure the show's slot in the non-suck bin.
Who else do you folks reckon?
If someone else seriously suggests Ryan Seacrest, you deserve everything coming to you.
