    There have been many people who have been confused by this and many editors have taken the issue up with the staff here but I think the reason is that this is a US site. I dont agree with it at all and I wish they would change it but I wouldnt hold my breath.

    Think of it as typical American arrogance.

    it's a us site, so you have to just deal with it. It is the same for life on mars aswell.

    top gear is a british as you can get, everyone knows the uk one is original so why not just have brackets on these Fake versions from the colonies such as the yanks
