Freiburger and Finnegan capture the spirit of British Top Gear better then the history channel show. I just discovered I can watch YouTube on my TV and have made it to episode 13, these guys are fucking great!

Top Gear UK is one thing, Roadkill is another. Both are great :) just glad new episodes of Roadkill are more frequent than Top Gear.

No, they aren't anything like the American version of Top Gear.

The real American version of top gear blows goats. I don't care if it's "better than whatever else is on". It's shit.

Roadkill is god captured on tape.

No...you misunderstand me. The TV show that is American Top Gear isn't great. Roadkill captures the amazing spirit of original (UK) Top Gear like nothing else. Roadkill just fucking gets "it" like nothing I've ever seen, much the same way UK Top Gear does.

Now that I understand your angle, I agree. They "get it" like the UK Top Gear.

UK Top Gear challenges are always awesome, no to mention every episode is fun to watch as a car guy.

I love top gear and its on tv 24/7

Not many US shows even come close, roadkill is at the top of the list, anything by Drive network is good too. Nothing on top gear tho

Favorite show. They definitely get it. My favorite episode is the Willys jeep. Reminds me of when my buddy Mark Ewing (rip bud) bought a shit $300 hatchback, 3 hours with a welder getting the suspension way up, hacked off the top, L bracket plexi windshield and we had the most dangerous off road vehicle ever. My art school buddy painted a giant monkey on the side of it and a skull on the other. Mark actually got into a fist fight at a stop light with a dude in a VW Bug we beat in a drag race. Fuck man.....good times. These guys just have a blast.

Roadkill is good enough for prime time. I look forward to every episode.

American Top Gear is horrible. It's a disgrace to the name.

Roadkill is a show by two people who knows a lot about working with cars.
Top Gear is a show by three people who knows how to drive them. James May knows how to work on cars but he can not compare to David and Mike.

No. Roadkill is Roadkill.


Saying that it "captures the original Top Gear-whatever" is ridiculous. Those guys are clowns. No matter how much they are portrayed to know about cars.
