Top Gear, all the way - completely ego-driven (no pun intended) by three genuinely entertaining stereotypes; nothing to do with cars realy anymore, just a entertainment comedy show with cars in the background.

I can't cook at all (but I love food), but if I have to choose betw. the two, it's Kitchen Nightmares. 

My biggest complaint is that BBC America shows like 12 straight hours of Kitchen Nightmares every weekday. The other 12 hours per day, they show Top Gear. That's only a *slight* exaggeration. There are so many great programs from England, doesn't the BBC have any imagination whatsoever? Seriously, I'd love to have that programmer's job. He must spend like a minute per month planning each month's programs. Utterly worthless...

If I had BBC I would tell you, from what I've seen both blow away the American versions, I give the win to Top Gear because the US version is worse than the American version of KNs.   But it's close.

Top Gear for sure !!  At least Rick Wakeman appeared as a celebrity guest LOL (one of the slowest on the circuit, might I add) and there's occasionally 'I Know What I Like' playing to torture Richard Hammond !!!
Oh, and I always get a laugh from Ramsey's 'dummy-spits' - not the sort of dickhead I'd like to work with but........

It's Kitchen nightmares for me since I don't really care about cars. I'm a picky eater and don't eat that big of a variety of food but I still have to give the not to kitchen nightmares. The british version is actually a legit tv show and good to watch if you actually care about food.

I like watching the American version the same way some people watch professional wrestling. It has a very predictable outline for every episode. It is oddly amusing to see ramsay argue with every stubborn owner, berate food for being raw/bland/having too much parsley or spices and to watch every botched dinner service and kitchen inspection. It's completely scripted but that's basically all of the fun and needed to get ramsay to make rants like:"You're cooking RAW food big boy! I could have been killed eating that, the garlic sauce is just ghastly. You have the name tag, the big jacket but you're a FAKE chef happy to microwave store bought F****** RAW CRAB!"

Actually very different shows with nothing in common at all. One is essentially a make over show, and the other is about three middle aged rev heads playing with expensive fantasy cars.

I quite enjoy both from time to time. No real preference tbh.
Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

Top Gyros. Definitely. As much as I'd like to eat Ramsay's food, he is far too up his own arse to be interesting to watch on the telly.

I agree. I really don't want to watch Ramsay shouting at people.

Americans might compare the two shows because they're the only shows that ever seem to be on over at the BBC America channel. Very frustrating. I'd love to be able to watch all those brilliant English sitcoms and sketch shows, but Americans aren't exposed to them. BBC America should change their name to The Clarkson & Ramsay Channel...

I despise both Dead
A cooking program must be about cooking, not a chef shouting and cursing. Pathetic.
And a cars program must be about cars, not stupid made-up stories. Fifth Gear is a much better car program, and Vicki Butler-Henderson is much nicer than Clarkson, May and Hammond, and Tiff and Jason can drive much better than those Top Gear clowns.

My only criticism is they concentrate far too much on cars that few of us can even dream of owning - while Ferraris and Lambos are fun to look at and drool over, there will never be one parked on my drive. Ordinary cars have almost disapeared from the program, unless it is to ridicule them.

 


I've come to love Top Gear but my one complaint isn't the cars I'll never own but the cars that I've never heard of. The supercars they drive I've at least heard of. I've never in my life seen an Alfa, Lancia, Fiat Panda, etc.

Over at The Daily Mash (like The Onion, only British), there's an article titled, "Are You a t**t?," and it has a picture of Clarkson, haha:
