I know I'm a little late to this, but I finally got around to watching the first episode last night and I thought it was ok. I even laughed a couple of times. It may not be as good as the original, but I think it will grow into its own show, takes some time to build the right chemistry.

2011 Synergy Green Metallic 1SS Camaro:
RS Package, White Ralley Stripes, Premium Sound.
Mods; Flowmaster Exhaust, Vararam CAI, Pfadt Sport Suspension, Budnik "Ice" Wheels, Nitto Invo tires
Upcoming Mods; Custom grill and badging.

the 2nd show was better and many already in the know said the 3rd one will be even better.

go look at the 1st year of the original Top Gear..it was horrible.
You can not compare. Top Gear UK is the best auto show in the world and nothing can top that.
This is just geared more for the American public..

That's the problem though..it's not geared..it's basically Top Gear UK with cardboard writing and american hosts.
I watched 1 minute of the last episode then changed the channel.
