From time to time, some TV producer sees a show on British television and says, "Hey, that's popular over there, let's see if we can make it a hit in America." So you get things like the abject failures of Red Dwarf or Coupling, or the horror that had been Man About the House. Now they are trying another popular show, Top Gear. After seeing a couple episodes, I am really not seeing anything there. They seem to be attempting a direct copy, but the presenters seem to completely lack any presence, personality or chemistry, the camera work is well below the bar that the original has set, and the humor just limply falls over. Has anyone else seen both? Does the US version have any potential at all for being watchable?
