Top Gear US starts mid November as well. Now that one will have a big ? looming over it as the australia version took 3 seasons to get it to a presentable state.

Presentable?!?
I cringe whenever Shane speaks as I believe this incarnation is intended to show the poms that Australia is a country full of redneck bogans. Well done channel 9 for stuffing up something that could have been worth while.
IMO it's going to decend into a Ford Vs. Holden w@nk fest catering to the lowest common denominator.

Theres already a show for that, its called Grunt Files on Briz31

I watched about 30mins of Tuesday's episode, and yes Shane's "acting" was too much to handle, especially the segment where they had Clarke doing the celebrity challenge...

Just remember this was the 2nd episode from the new team, hopefully they'll have their own style/format down pat by the finish, whereas the TG UK clan have been around for now 12 (?) seasons

Also remember the earlier seasons of top gear had a different presenter as well and was sh!t compared to what it is now. Watched the 60 Minutes interview with the Top Gear UK team and found that good.

haha i think this episode was the best yet... the caravans thing was kinda funny (although in some ways predictable), and the lambo for a delivery car thing was pretty funny... and i SO wish i'd ordered pizza from that shop that night...

caravan thing was pretty good. they need to do more of that kind of stuff
perhaps hot hatch under $2500 would be great to watch
lambo was funny but i dont know why they let him put the hot oily pizza box on the seat WTF??? lol
i found the celebrity lap where he just went round really slowly just pointless and boring

as long as they dont have a falcodore on every esp and not be bogans about everything (altho thats the main demagrafic they are after) it should be really good

Yeah I just watched it last night and all I can say is I'm not impressed at all. Hopefully it will get better.

All i've watched of the new Australian stuff is the UK vs AUS special, which was good, but just good, not great.

Apparently the reviews of the new US one are pretty mixed as well

Yeah. I heard the same also heard that one or all the persevere were complaining about it. To which the radio guys go blame yourself for not having any personality.
