If you did like it, BBC recently released the first season on DVD and Blu-Ray. BBC sent me a copy of the DVD to take a look at, and since I happen to really like the show, I was happy to receive it. The disc includes all ten episodes as well as a couple bonuses like a podcast and a series of “poolside chats” in which the hosts discuss airline travel and other pointless trivia.

In my opinion, they did a great job porting the show over to the States. Most of the negative reviews I read mention how they’re copying the UK version – of course it’s very similar. After all, it is officially Top Gear, it’s just the American version. We have to keep in mind that most Americans haven’t ever even heard of the UK-based Top Gear, and this show will appeal to them. To enthusiasts of the Jeremy, James, and Richard version, that’s where the criticism comes in. In my original Top Gear America review, I had a lot of comments saying the show simply wasn’t good or that the presenters didn’t have the same chemistry as the Brit boys. True – but take a look back at the UK version’s first season and tell me they started off with that chemistry.

If you did like it, you can head over to Amazon and save a few bucks.
