  1. oh and on occaision that sabine schmitz girl, id #$%# the shit out of her.
     
  2. The show is going to fail, and then the BBC and the US stations will think that no one in the US wants to watch Top Gear because they gave us some shitty show with different hosts and likely idiotic features. The magic and appeal of Top Gear is in its current hosts. Any change will spell immediate downfall.
     
  3. This is stupid. Americans are stupid.
     
  4.  
  5. Yeah, but people also think all American are stupid, and therefore need an "Americanized" Top Gear
     
  6. Hi Wheelman <A BORDER="0" HREF="http://www.supercars.net/PitLane?displayFAQ=y"><IMG BORDER="0" SRC="pitlane/emoticons/smile.gif"></A>
     
  7. I can tell already this show is going to be a huge failure and embarrassment to Americans and all those involved with the show.
     
  8.  
  9. whatever, if its regular top gear it wont affect me because i already see every episode. if it is new at least it is something in addition to normal TG. people need to stop complaining.
     
  10. Just because you see every episode doesn't mean everyone else can. My parents like to watch Top Gear but it's not likely that they're going to download torrents of the program and then sit in their offices to watch it. I can't get torrents to work through my school's internet connection, so the only way I can watch current episodes is either catch them on Youtube (in really shitty quality) before they get removed or pray someone provides a direct download. In all, it's a huge pain in the ass. Not to mention that fact that if the BBC were to market the show over here they could bring in much more income, resulting in higher budgets.
     
  11. You don't have an internet connection at home?
     
  12. Yes, and the computers are in offices at home. And then there's the fact that I'm home about 3 months out of the year. And now that I'm graduating I'll be there considerably less.
     
  13. And to think most people who want to watch the show know how to use torrents would be pretty foolish.
     
  14. Well, you can learn how torrents work, a year ago I didn't know what the #$%# a torrent was and now I do.
     
  15. Oh, so you're saying that the BBC should just tell everyone to use torrents and watch the program illegally instead of broadcasting it in the US and earn advertising revenue? Seriously, why are you arguing this point?
     
  16. Why the #$%# did Discovery only air like four episodes? Granted, they're were chopped to hell, but at least they were the REAL TOPGEAR
     
  17. Seriously. There's no way it can be as good anyway.
     
  18.  
  19. When will the show start?
     
  20. They need to use American Stig (TM).
     
  21. He sucks. Larry David was the only reason his show was any good. He'd also be a poor host. I don't like Jay Leno on the Tonight Show, but he's awesome when talking about cars (like on his site).
     
  22.  
  23. BBC America has last season.
     
  24. There was rumors that Leno was going to host the US Topgear.
     
  25. No I just say that if you are so #$%#ing desperate for a show you don't get it's not that hard to read up what the hell a torrent is.
