Product Description

Top Gear: The Complete Second Season (USA)

Amazon.com

Whether or not the American production of Top Gear surpasses the British version it was adapted from is still open to debate. But whatever your opinion may be, it's a safe bet that both serious car buffs in it for the rush of seeing super high-performance, ridiculously expensive sports cars in action and those who simply enjoy watching three guys indulging in silly vehicular high jinks will find plenty of entertainment in these 16 second-season episodes. The three Yank hosts are again comedian Adam Ferrara (a.k.a. "The Wrecker"), Tanner Foust ("The Driver"--the three-time X Games medalist is the one who gets to test-drive hot rides like the Porsche 911 GT2RS, the Subaru Impreza WRX STI… and a $500,000 Ford Fiesta, which he uses to break the world indoor speed record), and Rutledge Wood ("The Expert," although it's not clear exactly in what). Each episode finds them facing a variety of "challenges," dispensing witty one-liners and dude-esque putdowns as they drive around in not only automobiles (mostly old, funky, and unreliable, usually costing between $500 and $5,000), but also pickups, minivans, fake versions of Hollywood cars (like KITT from Knight Rider), and even big rig trucks. The results are generally amusing; a challenge to find a "luxury" car for under five grand results in Rutledge picking a "Fauxrari" (a cheap plastic Ferrari body over a Pontiac frame), which he then drives to the Hamptons to see if he can pass it off as the real thing, while in another episode he tries to haul fresh cow manure in the back of a Mazda Miata convertible. Sure, some of their stunts are as dumb and dangerous as something you'd find in a Jackass movie--you probably wouldn't want to take an 18-wheeler with a trailer filled with lighted barbeques, gas, and fireworks on to the nearest freeway--but it's all in good fun. Meanwhile, the "Big Star, Small Car" segments, a popular holdover from the British series, sees celebs like Kal Penn, Lake Bell, Joe Mantegna, Patrick Warburton, Edward Burns, and Adam Levine driving a little Suzuki in a season-long competition to see who can turn in the fastest lap. Bonus features include deleted and extended scenes, behind-the-scenes footage, and more. --Sam Graham

I would recommend it to anyone who likes cars and some laughs with it.

I recommended season 1 on DVD and since season 2 is a huge overall improvement, I'd say that season 2 is a must have DVD.

I really enjoyed the fact it was unedited, I thought it made it even more funny.

I like the British version of top gear, but when this show came out, I perfer this one now. I feel like this version does give us cool cars(that most of us cant afford anyways) and some incredibly funny moments. Each guy does some incredibly stupid things in this season.

I would recommend it to anyone who likes cars and some laughs with it.

The first season of the US version of Top Gear was hit and miss. In trying to be an almost exact replica of the British version, too many things felt overly scripted and forced, and tried to shoehorn the three US hosts into being copies of Clarkson, May and Hamster, which they most definitely aren't. Still, they had some good challenges, and their "specials" especially were good fun to watch.

Fortunately the US producers of Top Gear quickly realized where their show's strengths lay, and season two (and seasons 3 and 4 after that) are basically nothing but "specials." The hosts thrive in this environment, and quickly become a lot funnier and interesting to watch, especially once their identities get settled and they stick to them, and they don't have to try to be as dry and sarcastic as the British trio.

Though the US show still imitates the British show here and there in the types of specials it does, it definitely tries to divest itself from its British idol this season and does a good job of finding its own formula.

Really the only downside for this set is that it took WAY TOO FREAKING LONG to come out! :(

If you enjoy the British version of Top Gear (and who doesn't? Seriously, who are you people??) and are looking for more, I can heartily recommend Season Two of US Top Gear. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

Season 1 of the American Top Gear was solid. It was certainly no worse than the very early seasons of the British Top Gear. That show improved over time until it eventually became the powerhouse that it is today. I don't think that the American Top Gear will get anywhere near that, but Season 2 showed alot of improvement. In Season 1 of US TG, some of the challenges lacked imagination. They were almost an exact copy of the challenges seen in the British Top Gear. In this second season, some of the challenges are still similar to the British TG, but there just as many original challenges. Another improvement is that a few minor changes were made to the show. The format for the celeb laps and interviews was slightly changed, the news segment was removed and this second season uses its own original theme music at the beginning of the show. I liked these changes because it showed that the producers were going to give this show its own identity rather than imitating the British TG which is partly why the Russian and Aussie versions got canned so quick. Perhaps the biggest improvement is that the hosts have alot more fun in this season. In season 1 some of the jokes seemed very scripted and could almost be predicted before they were actually said or before they happened. The humor in this season just comes more naturally and it is funnier than the first season. I recommended season 1 on DVD and since season 2 is a huge overall improvement, I'd say that season 2 is a must have DVD.

This is going to echo what a couple of reviewers have already noted, but I felt it was important to add my two cents.

The second season of Top Gear USA is a vast improvement over the first, which I personally found to be virtually unwatchable. I don't know if it was because so many of the stunts were carried over from the UK version, the painfully forced studio segments or what, but the first season was bad. Really, really bad.

Then came Top Gear USA 2.0. The guys were actually funny, and now that the show has hit its stride in season three, it's a very close rival to the original UK show. That's the good news.

Here's the bad. I do not appreciate the fact that there's no warning anywhere on the season-two DVD packaging that it's an unedited version. And we're not talking a "damn" or "hell" here and there ... through the first three episodes or so, there are several uses of the word "s***," at least one "g**damn" and even an f-bomb or two. That's just part of the first of four discs.

If the hosts cuss, that's their choice. Just give some kind of warning or something ... or at the very least an option to pick up the original broadcast version.

Now, let me first preface this review by saying that I am not a person offended by language when I watch movies or shows. However, as a parent, you must be warned....there is some strong language in this. My son is a huge fan of the series on television. When his birthday came up, I thought he would love to watch this when we go on trips. So, needless to say, I was a bit shocked to hear (in the space of 5 minutes) the "F-Bomb" and "Axxhole". At first I thought I was just hearing things. However, that was not the case. I blame the manufacturer for not putting a rating on the product or a warning for language. I believe this to be a HUGE oversight...they should realize that there are younger viewers for the show. I just wanted to let other parents know before buying that this is an unedited version of the show. Which again, is fine for an adult....but not for children. I am giving a 1 star for not "clearly" warning parents.
