Any U.S. TOP GEAR FANS?

Top gear is being played on BBC America now. *GRINS*
I'm setting up my DVR to record them all, who knows how long it'll be on in the states this time?

Watched it yesterday, in Holland. It's so funny when they are doing those road trips.

American TV too, now that the Sopranos are off the air...
Entourage is coming back, though

I heard there was going to be an American made version of it... Although Top Gear is amazing, I think any other version would be rubbish because of the chemistry between the three guys, and of course Stig.

Plus, no one could ever match Jeremy Clarkson

Re: Any U.S. TOP GEAR FANS?

Top Gear is a great show. I wish we could get it to stay on some channel over here for more than a few episodes. Unfortunately, I don't get BBC America. I do have a buddy that records them now and then for me.

Another version without Jeremy Clarkson would be a complete waste of time. He IS the show.

I am glad to see it airing here in the US. However, I think I have watched every recent episode on youtube a time or two.

Like everything Channel 5 does. I really really boring version of good shows on other channels. Although they do have one good show, the Gadget show. That's the only thing good about the channel.
