    And this is history how? I'm really getting tired of the crap on this station. I have nothing against "Top Gear", a show I really like, and nothing against an American version. Could be good. I do have something against a cable outfit calling themselves "History" and having truckers, shooters, and drivers. I used to be hooked on what was once called "The History Channel". Not so much any more.

    I read an article 1-2 weeks ago where more and more channels were branching out. They are starting to lose touch with their base, and then the competing shows irritates me too. Animal Planet has River Monsters which is good, but then they re-show it on Discovery. Now NatGeo has one trying to copy it, but it just plain stinks.

    Try History International and The Military Channel to get your history on.

    It's MTV syndrome. Let's stop showing any music videos on MTV, and create MTV2, MTV3 and MTV100 for that. Even though MTV2 has forgotten what a video is too.

    But I shouldn't have to.
