TOP GEAR USA: UPDATE -- It's getting much better. Show #3 was excellent

I just thought I'd update my previous review -- show #1 definitely sucked. Show #2 was better. Show #3 was funny as hell. Nicely done.

I didn't think the first show was THAT bad. Obviously a lot of the humour was
canned.. etc. They've got huge british shoes fill....
3rd show. I was in stitches.
4th looks even funnier, can't wait for the paint ball wars...

Agree. Still feels like the three hosts watched the UK version soo many times
they are trying to emulate Richard, Jeremy, and James.

For example in episode 3, in the UK version Richard and/or Jeremy usually
rear-end or bump into James' car any time they do that shot in the challenges
where the three cars pull up and stop together.

In the US version, instead of the 'bump' routine, it seems it is for Rutledge
to break something off of the others' cars. He busted off the caddy hood
ornament, and also a mirror from tanner's car....

HCL America is part of the very large "HCL Technologies" company that has grown from its roots in India to become an 8 Billion Dollar company with a global presence in the IT Industry.

If your company has ditched Notes and Domino, I feel sorry for you. For companies that do use Notes/Domino this is a game changer and Apple should be paying attention. Here's why: There are hundreds of little Notes client applications you'd never spend the time and money to build and deploy for your internal user base on IOS that we use Notes for all the time (those of us still using it).
