I usually watch 60 minutes. Tonights episode was pretty good but I couldn't believe at first that they were going to talk about Top Gear. They didnt mention the US spin off, but there are some priceless quotes from Wilman and Clarkson speculating why top gear is funny.

I don't agree with Steve Croft about the first season being extremely boring. I am into the nerdy car show stuff. I also would've like to see him post a lap time in the Cee'd.


edit: this is only the extra 'stuff'.

Every person in my family called me about this separately and unknowingly last night, lol.

Can I be a hipster douche and say Top Gear is selling out and going mainstream in America?

Yep, just look at what they post on FB.

It's one of the most popular shows in the world, it can't do that without playing to a more common level. It's why it's all explosions, noises, fast cuts, and Clarkson going PHRRWWWAAARRRRR. People don't have patience for real information anymore, heaven forbid!

It's still a great show.

explosions, noises, fast cuts, and Clarkson going PHRRWWWAAARRRRR is what Top Gear is all about. That is not what I meant by main stream. I was just playing on the fact some people on here remember the first days of Viper/ Jabba's world posting horribly compressed vids/ torrents of the initial seasons when almost no one had ever heard of Top Gear in the US.
