I have to admit that these last two episodes have been pretty darn fun to watch. I'll even go so far as to say that the "Apocalypse" episode was actually better than the UK version...and this is coming from a long -time fan of the UK version. Things I liked:
- Rutledge "losing a ball" was just freakin' funny
- Racing the Stig to survive? very cool
- The "magic eye"...oh my
And then the latest one (Mammoth Mountain) was really good as well:
- Rutledge going for a coffee and French toast was great
- I think the guys are starting to really get each others mannerisms down - which makes it enjoyable because instead of just making fun of each other it's more like friends giving each other a hard time (BTW, this is also a strength in the UK version)
All-in-all I think they're starting to hit their stride now. Nice.
