Segment 4: Blind Man's Drift
Overall this was a great episode. It featured skill driving, humor, fast cars, and a blind man overcoming the odds and drifting to victory. There was a car beating two skiers down an icy mountain. Two Aston Martin Vantages compete in a drag race. A blind man outperforms two guys that can see in a Drifting competition. The jokes were good, except for Rutledge doing a pun about a star gets lost on the test track. That was a lame pun. The chemistry among the hosts was greatly improved over the chemistry from the first episode. This is a must watch episode of Top Gear US. Episode 2 is my favorite episode from Top Gear US. The episode is nearly perfect.
Final Verdict: 9 Stigs out of 10. This episode is available at www.history.com.
