While not even close to Top Gear UK, I also wasn't expecting it to be. I think the first guest, while a badass as a person (Buzz Aldrin, ) was a bit lackluster for the series premiere. The hosts need a LOT more chemistry too. That is the biggest problem thus far. The content is (close to being) there, the idea is good (because clearly it works in Britain), just needs some finesse. Having said all that, the cinematography was very good and similar to the original show I just wish the camera wasnt quite so wobbly.

I wish them good luck, I will ALWAYS be a bigger fan of the UK version, here's to not sh*tting the bed trying to make it too extreme too quickly.

Did they seriously do a "best of" for their first year? I mean they were pretty funny/useful at some points this season, but the commentary was barely worthy of repetition, plus it seemed to me like they were "proving American" a significant portion of the models featured this season.

The fact that it's HD is great (but expected) though; why others are not exclusively HD is beyond me at this point.

Tanner Foust is good, but the others are crap (in my opinion).

Adam with the Cadillac Coupe Deville was the best episode of the season, IMO. Alaska episode was not bad, either.

Tanner is good for the show, Rutledge is necessary, Adam needs to be fired.
The best of I didn't even bother with... Good show as long as its not compared to Top Gear UK
