No, not that Top Gun. There’s no way Dan, Nick, Tyler and I could recreate that strangely appropriate homoerotic volley ball scene. And if we could, I wouldn’t want to visit the website where it would be posted. No, part of the TTAG team’s assembling in the Lone Star state to shoot a pilot codenamed Top Gun. It’s based not-loosely-at-all on the Top Gear TV show. Nick is James May (gun nerd). Dan is Richard Hammond (thrown in the deep end of stupid stuff). I’m Jeremy Clarkson (incendiary bombast). Tyler is Tyler. Na na na na. (Opus reference. See: above.) Depending on post-filming alcohol consumption, we’ll have to ratchet-down our posting pace a little. Given that many of our readers are like lab rats tapping on a metal bar to release a line of cocaine—and I mean that in the nicest possible way—I apologize in advance for the TTAG DT’s. Not to worry. If the TV show works, you’ll have your hourly dose and then some. How great is that? You tell me.

  1. This is a great idea! What network, channel,etc.? Please don’t let it be stuck between 3AM fishing shows. (But if it is, that slot IS open in my schedule)

  2. Reverse engineering Top Gear? Oh, hell. I guess this means that you’re all going to start talking like a bunch of Limeys. It won’t be long until we hear about yer muzzle cloimb, recoil that ‘urts and how you’re awl knackered after an ‘ard day of plinkin at the roinge.

    Please shoot me now. Wif a revowva loik a Webley if yud be so koind. Gawd save the Queen.

    • I haven’t heard the name Laibach mentioned in years. Time to queue some up in the playlist. Now I’m in the mood for some Einsturzende Neubauten, Throbbing Gristle and Lard (sounds like a horrible meal).

  3. As long as it’s broadcast in Low Def. so I don’t have to shield my innocent eyes from your ugly mugs I will deign to watch it.

  4. Please for the love of all that’s holy, don’t throw a bunch of socially dysfunctional gunnies into a bunkhouse and film copious footage of soap operaesque pointlessitude.

  5. Oh yeah! Right here in my home state of Texas! I can’t wait. How about a special guest appearance by Ralph? BTW what are the odds of filming an episode in my hometown, Brownsville (preferably the episode with Ralph in it)? Not likely, huh? Still, I’ll be waiting and watching.
