Bitter disappointment., 11 Mar 2008
The Top Gear road trip across America's southern states was one of the greatest programmes ever aired by the BBC. Unfortunately; this DVD release has been edited to the point of not making any sense. Unless you caught the show on the television, you won't have a clue as to what the Top Gear Trio are talking about most of the time as vast portions of the film have been cut. The jokes are now inane waffle. Inane waffle backed by a very poor soundtrack.
I really, really, really wanted to like this release, but it's sadly not worth buying. Newcomers will be lost because of the poor editing mentioned above and Top Gear fans will be extremely annoyed that all the funny bits have been removed.
The race to the North pole is worth a watch, but not at the price of this 2 DVD set.
