Am I the only one that thinks TG:A has gotten much better this season compared to last?

No. Most likely due to the fact that there is a challenge by episode, and that the only good episodes of season 1 were the ones with challenges. Hosts also seem to have a bit of a chemistry going on. I just wish Tanner would be more enthusiastic during the Stig laps.

TG:A is the biggest fail ever... The hosts act like such jackasses. They act like complete idiots on the challenges. None of them seem like they have a passion for automobiles. Tonights new episode - Were gonna see what cars Tanner can drift? No thanks.. I'll continue to watch TG:UK on NetFlix

TG America has provided some mild entertainment while waiting for better shows to start. It's funny to see how hard these guys fail. Tanner Foust is the only real worthy host.

From last year to this year it is much much better. No, it's not top gear UK, which had a great se17, wich there were more then 6 tho.

they are getting better, but they do need to change out a few of the players.

and then compare it to Adam Corolla's "the car show", lolz all around

I agree about this season being MUCH better than the first.. But I feel like when I watch TG:A it's like they're trying to impress the people who barely know anything about cars by doing ******* challenges and ****ty tests(who wants to see tanner attempt to drift an RV, Limo, etc.? I mean REALLY). When you watch TG:UK each hosts knows ALOT about car history, really go into detail about the car they're testing and the way they film the show is WAY different. They all know how to drive. It's better.

The hosts need to get a notebook and pen to take notes, then watch EVERY episode of TG:UK. I feel like it'd help a ton more.

I think they are trying to make a show that everyone would like and not just car fiends like us. They want people to get done watching Pawn Stars then tune in and enjoy it even if they know little. I think it is unfair to compare TG:UK to TG:A. They are 2 totally different shows. TG:A is made for mainstream America (not that smart about auto history) while TG:UK is made for automobile enthusiast while non enthusiast if they happen to tune in would still like it.

TG:A needs to scrap all of its hosts, including Tanner, if they want to be successful. The chemistry seems so forced forced. I literally get uncomfortable watching TG:A.

Their challenges suck, their personalities suck, and most of all, their attempts at humor suck.

tanner has been a **** host on every show he has been on, he can drive but his personality has always put me off on shows.... now idk what the **** they were even thinking with the other two guys they signed unless those are the only other two that made bids.

I literally think we could take three people from this forum and make a better show with half the budget.

Tanner's personality seems obnoxiously cocky. He's not a funny cocky like Clarkson. Rather, he just comes off as a douchebag you would find at a college bar.

The car show blows. If they changed the format to something less "ESPNish," kept Carolla and maybe Matt Farrah, I would watch it. After trying very hard to give it a chance, I just cannot watch that crap anymore. John Salley knows absolutely nothing worth hearing and Dan Neil is a massive douche.

i actually think the US guys know more about cars, how they work and sheit, but the uk guys have better chemistry and are more passionate so it appeals to more people.

I also think the uk car reviews are better the us ones seem way too scripted

TG:A does suck because I compare it to TG:UK. My expectations are way too high.

I though the one where they try and beat tanner was pretty good. His commentary on the laps is so gay though

I wonder if they're going to ever do a competition show of TG:UK vs TG:US like they did when they competed with the Germans and Australians... Although it just seems like it wouldn't work as well as the other two, but then again I'd never seen the Australian or German one by itself before.

I just liked the Lexus they had in the episode. Probably one of the most badass sounds I have ever heard in my life.

TG:A and TG:UK are soo diffirent you cant even compare them. I think there both entertaining. Uk is a bit more technical and shows the cars better but USA is just meant to be entertaining. not as serious
