I normally wouldn't offer commentary on a Third Season product. Everyone, by this time, knows whether or not the program is something that appeals to them. In this case, however, the listed product details tell you very little about the actual DVD release so I thought I'd color in a few details.
Season Three presents sixteen episodes from 2012 and 2013. Each was presented on television with commercial breaks so they run approximately 45 minutes in length for almost 12 hours of program content. The DVD set is spread over four discs and features a few Bonus items. Included in the special additions are host interviews, behind-the-scene footage, audio commentary, and extra scenes. If you love the show, it's a nice amount of Bonus material. But the show itself seems so informal, I'm not sure that these added specials actually offer much in the way of new insight. But some of them are quite amusing due to the casual chemistry of everyone involved.
(1) Police Cars, (2) Small Cars, (3) Cult Classics, (4) One Tank, (5) The Tractor Challenge, (6) Monument To Moab, (7) College Cars, (8) America's Toughest Cars, (9) RV's, (10) 150 Miles Per Hour, (11) Taxis, (12) Adam's Show, (13) Doomsday Drive, (14) Mammoth Mountain, (15) Minnesota Ice Driving, and (16) Viking Trucks.
The topics range from expected to unusual. Some personal favorites: Viking Trucks has the crew headed off to Iceland, and I liked this change of scenery, Doomsday Drive has the guys try to come up with the perfect car for post-apocalyptic devastation, and Taxis has them head to Las Vegas (I lived there and the cab experience is not to be missed) to see what's up with one of America's least glamorous jobs. Again, though, you already know if you want to add "Top Gear: USA, Season Three" to your collection, just wanted to spill on the DVD details. KGHarris, 8/13.
This is a great series that seems to have been overlooked in the UK because of our version but, I (and lots of others) like this one better. I like the format of it unlike UK top gear, you just get 3 guys having a laugh with some cars. They are all very funny and genuinely are good friends, and seem to have actual knowledge of fixing cars which you don't get in UK top gear.
I love this DVD and could watch it everyday!
