I had heard Tanner's name, but couldn't tell you anything about him. I knew he was a driver, but I assumed it was drifting so I never paid any attention. I know Adam because he was on Rescue Me.

cant imagine how nobody mentioned the Top Gear USA Moab episode. Just got around to watching it, and I gotta say, it was one of the best episodes ever. If you're behind the times like me and haven't watched it, do it now.

Top Gear USA S03E06 - Monument to Moab [PT-BR][TGBR] - Car Videos on StreetFire

The irrational part of me loves to think that my favorite vices (mnt dew, red meat and beer) have helped me build a super brain.

I like the UK version a bit better too, but I also like the US one. They seem to be developing their own style, more and more distinct from the UK version as time goes on. As a viewer, one just has to stop tyring to make the US hosts fit into the UK character's roles, none of them really fit that well anyway, and it makes for a more enjoyable show to just let them be who they are.

Still having said that "shitting my pants" is just never going to sound as funny as "soiling my knickers" to a American ear.
