Top Gear is back and hosts Tanner Foust, Adam Ferrara, and Rutledge Wood pull out all the stops exploring all things automobile. If it's never been done in a car, they're interested. Whether it's being the first to photo map the Rubicon Trail, or being the first Americans to legally drag-race in Cuba in over fifty years, they push the boundaries of what can be done on four wheels.

    Convertibles are associated with warm, sunny weather but are we missing half the fun? Common sense says a convertible is probably not the best car for winter driving. So Top Gear thumbs its nose at common sense and the hosts take to the snowy peaks of the Rocky Mountains to test all-wheel drive convertibles in challenges that make the Winter Olympics look like a walk in the park.

All the snobs comparing this to brit Top Gear are the bmw/audi elitist types. Top Gear USA is a straight, to-the-point entertainment show staring all-American guys from different walks of life. The best episodes of brit Gear are the adventure roadtrips and the USA producers recognized that. Granted, Clarkson, May and Hammond as presenters are unmatched in personality and knowledge but if Americans wanted a show that spent 80% of the time with in-studio dialogue then they'd have to bring in Matt Leblanc, Adam Corolla and some other gear head wannabes for a nice scripted circle jerk. This show is about entertainment and varied personalities picking interesting locations for purpose oriented cars. The first few seasons tried the studio audience thing and people complained. Now they've hit their stride and seem to be developing better chemistry like the brit hosts. Alone, Clarkson is a racist a-hole, May is a boring old man, and Hammond is an energetic youngster going on 50. But together their personalities create the show! Similarly if USA Top Gear wants to keep building traction they need to continue supporting the friendship of these hosts. I love seeing loud mouth Adam make fun of Tanner's height like they're bros. And the token homely Rutledge balances them out with equal parts knowledge, cowardice, and giant head jokes. Hopefully they give the show time to mature. Top Gear brit took a number of seasons before it became what it was pre-Clarkson violence...

Awesome show!
Verified purchase
Don't know what the deal is but I got an episode called "24 hrs of Lemons" that has not aired yet!! Pretty cool! Either way, this show is great! They started out a little rocky in the first season but quickly started to gel and have natural chemistry. It's difficult to reproduce a hit show but these guys nailed it! Tanner is a machine, probably one of the best drivers on the planet. Rut is a genuine good guy and a hands on car geek. Adam is all American and very witty on the spot. They're really hitting they're stride this season. Regardless of Amazons' screw up.

With the sad demise of Top Gear US
Verified purchase
With the sad demise of Top Gear US, the last episode really shows off how great the hosts really are. The enthusiasm between the three of them is contagious, and they really enjoy being around each other, and being around the cars.

The change from season one till now shows how the show has matured and gotten better.

Top Gear US, Adam, Rut and Tanner, you will be missed!

BBC is choking the show!
Verified purchase
I like the chemistry of Tanner, Rutledge and Adam, however, it seems that the BBC is not giving them much to work with in terms of time and resources. It seems like this season that things move very quickly. How about more outlandish races and unique challenges! Also, there's no need for the F bombs.

Comedic gold
Verified purchase
These antics just get better and better. Just when you think you've seen it all these three get together and make comedic gold wrapped around an automotive show. Informative on choices for your next purchase and entertaining for just some good ole driving fun.
