There is no need for this show to exist

Have you ever seen the early seasons of Top Gear UK? They were terrible... if they stopped then, we wouldn't have the lovely bit of entertainment we have now.

It just sucks that I don't get BBCA in HD, so I rarely watch it. Every once in a while I'll DL a HD torrent and stream it to my FIOS box.

But TGUS is on history, which is in HD.

Yeah, I have that problem now, too.. uVerse doesn't do BBCA in HD...

Only the reruns now, the first showings (and some subsequent reruns) are full-length and unedited.

What I've seen so far, I've liked okay. They are settling in and getting better; but I don't like the overly-complicated track, and the half-assed way they're doing the star/car segment. I'm dead sure that Farced is their Stig, as well; but I think that's a bad idea, since his idea of going fast is only sideways, which fails him every time. They really need a proper "tame racing driver", who will drive the car with all four wheels going forward.

This show could have been on NBC with Adam Carolla and a much larger budget if the geniuses there had not passed it up.

I say corolla and tanner would work well together... Leno can join for the ultimate win. He'd do luxury and historic cars, tanner sport cars, adam would do trucks, muscle cars and everything else

From what I've seen, Corolla is quite the new age sports car/ super car fanatic, so that wouldn't really work. No idea on his history with muscle cars.

Hell that's even better they can go head to head with each other - him and tanner. I'm sure Leno is no slouch either. That trio might even top Clarkson, Hammond and May

Nope, just a track similar to the original TG track, it works far better on tv than the US one.
