The Top Gear boys are in good form so far this season. ...Laughed my ass off at Ep 1.

That Ferrari 458 was nice! Wow. I love the ZR1 and it's probably the best car you can get for $100k, but considering they didn't have a limit, I'm with Tanner on this one. In the drag race, I wanted to see them swap cars and then rematch. Oh well.

none of them are particullary thrilling, nor was top gear in it's first few seasons.

They weren't this bad. UK has all 3 guys in brilliant comedy. Tanner Foust can drive. That's it.

Both the UK and US versions are bad comedy. UK version is like Benny Hill reading a car rag.

Tanner may well be a complete tool, but after I saw that Mattel trophy truck jump I have new found respect for him.

I have to agree. The original Top Gear works because the 3 of them play off each other perfectly. The U.S. hosts don't seem to have the right chemistry and aren't nearly as funny. I'll take the original over the U.S. version. The only good thing about the U.S. version is they will test more American cars.

TBH I thought EP 1 was the WORST ever!! EP2 was good though. I loved the Ferrari and ZR1 shootout. The Stig is a bad mofo!!!

There is only one 'person' on top gear UK that can drive. And some say under his helmet is a slightly smaller helmet.

They need to replace the current US cast with the cast of 'Its always sunny in Philadelphia '

They weren't this bad. UK has all 3 guys in brilliant comedy. Tanner Foust can drive. That's it.Go back and watch the very first season of the new Top Gear, before James May was added to the cast... The previous host, Jason Dawe, was every bit as bad as Tanner Foust.
I think Ruthledge ? is ok.

It still had a few Fifth Gear hosts (Tiff and Vicky)then. The 2 shows you mean is the new Top Gear vs the Top Gear US. ;)

FWIW - I was exchanging Twitter posts with the Rutledge and Adam about the V ... they were a bit coy, but did admit there will be a V this season and, based on the exchange, I suspect it is a Wagon. Note the link to the pic from Caddy at the end of the thread.

Here is the thread:

from me (@JeffSopha): Will we see a CTS-V on #TopGear USA this season? Is the opening credits to S2 a teaser? @TannerFoust @RutledgeWood @adamferrara @Cadillac

from @adamferrara: @JeffSopha @TannerFoust @RutledgeWood @Cadillac We got Caddys coming up

from @cadillac: Good to hear! See you on #TopGear RT @adamferrara: @JeffSopha @TannerFoust @RutledgeWood @Cadillac We got Caddys coming up

from @adamferrara: @JeffSopha love the V

from @RutledgeWood: @JeffSopha @tannerfoust @adamferrara @cadillac I want a CTSV wagon so bad I can't see straight

from @RutledgeWood: @Cadillac @adamferrara and I have spent way too much time on yalls website building our "dream" CTSVs. His-coupe, Mine 6spd Wagon w/Recaros

from @cadillac: @RutledgeWood @AdamFerrara you love the CTS-V. What do you think about this first glimpse? http://t.co/J7fUDEu

I thought it might be, but @thebigjimshow only has 15 tweets, 13 followers and hasn't tweeted since December. No way that's outr TBJS - our TBJS has too much to say for that twitter account to be his.

That is genius, I would watch it if they did that.

You need to invent it and build it to be authentic, if you are given scripts, there is nothing authentic about you and what you do, and even worst when there is nothing about your life that you can relate to motoring, so imagine being a host for a motoring show

The UK version has a bunch of typical arrogant acting Brits who don't know cars - and lets face it, their cars were as much junk as anybody's. The US show is ultra lame and I don't get why the fat guy from NASCAR pre show and the other character are on the show. I have decided to never watch these shows and really don't want to see them act goofy about the CTS-V. My two cents (really). The best car show is Chasing Classic Cars...

Why worry about half-ass "show biz"? We know what our cars can do and the engineering that made it possible. Cadillac has to pay its dues as BMW and Mercedes have done for decades. It's really going to get interesting when the latest M5 finally, finally, etc. ... hits the streets. (God knows it has taken forever.) Let the games begin. Ha haa!

Another blasphemer, My wife hates Topgear UK ergo it must be the best show on TV.
