Having watched Speed Racer as a child I thought the movie adaptation was a travesty to the original. While the visuals were cool, dumbing it down for a younger (90s) audience took away from the perils of the original concept. Also I thought the actors were bland.

Roadkill itself has gotten a bit too commercial taking the fun out of two buddies buying a car and trying to just make it to (insert destination here) to more of a garage Top Gear. Corporate hands have ruined the soup. Finnegan spun off his own show (Faster with Finnegan) which was good but not great. He hangs out Read more

While the show was generally entertaining it was not as much fun as Roadkill or other car shows. I get Jerry and his cohorts sharing old anecdotes but as the jokes and references were more "had to be there" a lot was lost on the audience.  It was talking for talking sake.
