Top Gear: USA

A Top Gear USA trailer. They're 're-imagining' Top Gear.

Um. Scary. I see no 'taking the piss' happening. Lots of happy-high five-ing. No corners on the test tracks. Comments like '165 in a foor door!' as if its some sort of surprise.

Yeah. Okay. Look. If it helps educate Americans that cars have to actually go around corners (and then perhaps GM/Ford, etc might start making American cars that *can* go round corners - both left *and* right hand corners), then thats  a good thing.

But Top-Gear without humour ? Irony ? Sarcasm ?  And of course, since its advertiser-funded, will no doubt be afraid to actually criticise the advertisers product ? 

Here's hoping they can pull it off.
