I also only finally had time to watch it last night. It is still entertaining and I will definitely watch the rest of the series too. Rouxenator is right, they have their own identity now and should not be compared to the old format. Die hard fans like myself should accept and appreciate that the "magic" lives on in Grand Tour.Watched the new episode last night and it was excellent. Finally seems they have their own identity and a good show. Maybe now that Grand Tour has aired people can let Top Gear just be what it is without comparing it to old Top Gear. My wife also enjoyed it, especially the Kazakhstan story since she was part of Shuttleworth's research team.
Spot on. My wife remarked that isn't it funny that an American has joined Top Gear to replace the former British presenters who went to America. Matt is a real credit to Americans, however, especially when you consider the joke of an American racing driver cliche that Amazon decided to go with for their actual show in America (wouldn't that hick be even more insulting to Americans???).Harris talks too much, and what is with the attitude towards the star in a car? Matt is holding the team together, by far the best yet bland and scripted. Rory is just terrible, although sounds the most not-scripted of them all, maybe he should be scripted as all his comments just lowers the class of the show. Hopefully he grows a personality as the show goes on.
