Re: BBC America HD coming?

said by TitusTroy:

doesn't History Channel also show Top Gear?...so you don't really need BBC-A to watch it

I hope you're kidding!!!! The History version is horrendous. The Brits are much funnier on the original.

Frankly i'm a little surprised how many people seem to like this channel,I will never watch top gear i guess i'm not a car guy ,I recorded copper,i'm willing to watch another episode and give it a chance,but my wife bailed on me halfway through the show. I also watched a couple episodes of DR.WHO ,but i thought it was to silly but i might check it out again when the new season starts,The one show i really liked was LUTHER i set up a season pass fot that one!

The British show is the original, and has been on air for years. History started an American version a couple years ago, but the guys who are on it stink. You'd be surprised how many television shows we remake from England.

The UK Top Gear was shown on the Sci-Fi Channel or something odd like that a few years back. I seem to recall it was a few episodes then it disappeared.

Like many shows, it's syndicated all over the world. The US version was a little embarrassing.

There's hundreds of examples... don't forget Pop (American) Idol, lol.

The point is there are going to be as many people poo poo the BBC-A shows as like them. The same goes for the stuff on other channels. I for one can't understand the fascination with Adult Swim, Jersey Shore, yada yada yada but I get that others live for it. So all these arguments that BBC-A is a useless channel are silly. Oh, I forgot, it's all on Blu-ray, nevermind (with that argument we don't need many of the channels).

Yea - Could they get 3 less interesting guys. The 3 Brit guys are what make the show - I could really care less about sports cars - but I love the show because they are so awesome together.
