They made the US version BETTER than the UK version..
Don’t believe me?
Google fu the shit out of Top Gear USA season 6 and watch the shit out of it, it’s tons better than whatever crap Christopher James “I’m so cool” Evans ever made.
The chemistry is there, the stupid jokes are there, it’s quite OK actually. Sure it’s scripted like fuck, but so was the stuff with the ultimate trio (May, Hammond, Clarkson).
