    Australian Top Gear

    Does anyone else think its crap compared to the original uk version?

    Its just not the same without Richard, James and Jeremy and their antics

    Don't get me started, what a load of rubbish. It's obvious nobody can duplicate the original, they should have just tried to do something totally different instead of a lame imitation... blargh

    Apparently they were in the Super Pit here in Kal doing a drag race with a couple of 793C dump trucks...I want to see that.

    I watched UK topgear cause it was funny AND it was about cars.....now i just watch OZ topgear for the cars, the 3 oz hosts try to sort of copy the uk hosts style but they dont do it right and aren't really funny, i wouldnt laugh if they tickled me.....

    Even the original Topgear is a load of crap! I have watched the aus Topgear, and I would rather watch 5th Gear anyday. Atleast they actually test cars instead of makin sharks try to eat Mini Mokes. Absolute rubbish.

    i missed it too.
    normally i would just download the torrent (and it is very embarrassing..lots of people from overseas download the Australian version ), but i must admit..it's kinda sad how they try to copy the original.

    5th gear is crappy anyway.
    The UK top gear is much better.

    Although i do agree..i would rather watch 5th gear than the aussie top gear.

    You are seriously kidding yourself.

    Top Gear UK, its not meant to be totally about cars, its the comedic factor aswell. 5th gear is as boring as watching Sh!t turn white.

    Top Gear UK is one of the MOST ENTERTAINING shows on TV.

    The Aussie version is crap, from what I have seen.

    2nd EP was TONS better than the original..

    Already see they are starting to blend and more natural in my opinion..

    And anyone whos calling UK great and AUS bad, have you seen TopGear UK's first season? They couldnt get people to go, no more than like 20 people in the studio..

    Alot better than UK's 1st eps and alot better than there own 1st ep, i'll stick with it and I reckon it'll get better

    Charlie Cox.... please what a wanker!

    Yep the original top gear was average but at least it was original and not a direct copy. To make it worse they wont even make a decision about which car is better than the other.

    So, we have a copy program that sits on the fence so they dont offend anyone and arent funny

    I can't stand that blonde haired bloke. He's too over the top. Even the kiwi could do a better job. Test track: crap. Show: Crap.

    Thumbs down aussie top gear ....

    i couldn't agree more guy's....this show will end up in 20to01 as one of the biggest flops in aussie TV....
    The cars suck..the so called tests suck...and they even got the mining trucks wrong....they can load up 300 tonnes....just all wrong wrong wrong...
    Take it off the air and put the real good old top gear back on....at least i don't have to download it from the net....

    I missed the 1st episode, I think the 2nd episode was a pretty decent effort

    Good to see most people agree and it wasn't just me

    Like Stoogey I watched UK Topgear because of its comedic factor and it was about cars, I'm not going to stop watching Aus Topgear, but Im only watching it for the cars
