That version has been canceled. This is the new BBC America version starting July 30th with new hosts.

So better/OG format, but worst hosts (at least comparied to how the USA hosts ended). If the hosts gel this will be fun, but if we get a lot of turnover I'm not sure.

I like the production values and I think the hosts have pretty decent chemistry already. Fitchner is already kind of a Clarksonesque j.a. Hopefully Wookie got all his "look at me, I'm an Englishman in a strange land" lines out of his system. Antron Brown was solid.

The "wacky Top Gear" segment in Baja was enjoyable enough, but I didn't think the car review segments were very substantial at all.

The guest star interview were better than what the current UK crew can do, so of course it seemed shorter. (Then again, this is a 40-minute show for USA attention spans.)

I'll keep watching because I'm becoming quite a sucker for car shows. (Never watched Top Gear before Grand Tour came out, and now I watch both, Motorweek and even Jay Leno-of-all-people.)
But, they have a lot of room for improvement.

...and at least through episode 4, they *still* have a lot of room for improvement.  This has been fairly disappointing.
