I love Top gear but find the Australian version lame.  It's a little "try hard" and just does not cut it as far as I am concerned.  I see they have announced a second series.  Am I alone in this thought?

No, I'm with you there.  I don't think they've got the personalities right.  Instead of witty they went with annoying.

Yes, it's not gone well for them.

I'm in another forum that focusses specifically on sports cars and driving in Australia. Surely their target audience. Each time the show runs the howls get a bit more shrill.

I stopped watching after the first episode betrayed the producers' intention to do little other than ape the UK format, charachters, scripts.. Last night's episode seems to have plumbed a new low though, and I'm going back to see if there's entertainment value in how BAD it is :-)

It's a shame. I'd like to see a local success come out of an Australian approach to this subject. People do like their cars - and we have some unique clubs/car cultures down here.

The Huntley Hill Climb is famous. Just a Sunday at Huntley is a real eye opener. People turn up with purpose built gear that with two engines and soft slicks.. That hill gets CLIMBED!

I love the British Top Gear a little bit more, maybe because my husband prefers watching it :)
