    Top Gear Australia AXED

    The last few eps were cringe worthy, but they should have given them more time IMO.

    it was inevitable. such a shame really but i got the vibe that the hosts were trying too hard to be like the top gear UK blokes. they should of been more like them selves.

    they should just stop trying altogether. if it hasnt worked 2nd time round, might aswell just stick to airing the UK one only
    Sure, we dont have to worry about viking raids or scurvy anymore, but instead we make a daily routine of sitting in flimsy, fibreglass (or metal) boxes full of gasoline which are propelled in opposing directions on the freeway at velocities matching that of low flying aircraft.

    This is a roundabout way of saying that cars are dangerous....

    Not at all surprised.

    Agree with the general consensus that they're trying too hard to emulate the UK boys.
    TBH I think the UK version has just about run it's course anyway.

    I like the Aus version, and hate that its been axed.

    Btw, pretty sure part of the airing rights of Nine showing TGUK is that they had to produce an Australian version.

    i reckon the 2nd series was heaps better than the first... but still pretty shite

    i reckon they needed to start off more like 5th gear and then mature and grow the characters rather than trying to jump straight into the "antics" that makes TGUK so good

    also, it didn't help that the budget of the show wasn't as large and aus market cars have nothing on what's available in europe
