Top Gear: The Complete First Season DVD Review (USA Version)



Synopsis: Join comedian Adam Ferrera, champion rally and drift racer Tanner Foust and racing analyst Rutledge Wood as they unleash Top Gear and explore the history of America, one lap at a time! Filled with wit and humor, Top Gear brings even more ambitious stunts, extreme challenges, humor and mischief in a series chock-full of high adrenaline action entertainment, car reviews and eccentric adventures. Top Gear challenges include travelling a moonshine run along a classic Prohibition route in the Deep South, teaching a blind man to drift a Nissan 370Z, racing a HALO jumper in a Ford Velociraptor across the Arizona desert, discovering America’s toughest truck on an epic journey through the Alaskan wilderness, and evading a Cobra helicopter gunship in a Dodge Viper… through the middle of town. The Stig also appears, setting definitive Power Laps for performance cars featured on the show, and there’s a host of celebrities taking the wheel in “Big Star in a Small Car” including astronaut Buzz Aldrin, Lost actor Dominic Monahan, Modern Family’s Ty Burrel, musician Kid Rock, Avatar star Michelle Rodriguez and skateboard legend and game designer Tony Hawk.

Review: We're big fans of the UK version of Top Gear here at the Legion, so we were excited to see the US counterpart when it premiered on the History Channel.  The first season went pretty well.  The guys aren't quite as likable as the UK versions and the jokes aren't quite as risque, but the action was there.  The cars featured are, obviously, American models and the stunts are pretty much on par with the quality of the UK series.  This is a necessary edition to the Top Gear family and we welcome it with open arms!
