Yep, laughed at that & when Harris kept braking with Paddy in the passenger seat! :laughing:

Don't care what anyone says, Clarkson & Co are past it now, compared to these 3. :)

I havnt watched many episodes since clarkson and co left, couldnt stand Chris Evans so gave up with it. Have been hearing good things about the new series though so may have to give it a watch, think freddie and paddy are funny in other things so will have to give it a go.

Due to the success of the 3 new presenters, its been announced TG will move to BBC1.

Not sure when but that's a big move & shows confidence in them.

I have tried my best to watch but I cannot stand Freddie! I really really want to like it and watch it but I just can’t. Just watched all of grand tour and admittedly wasn’t as good from when they were apart of top gear. Just watching the grand tour seamen series now

I find them like school kids and they're all a bit annoying.

I'm loving the 3 of them. It works for me and that's what matters. I was properly laughing when the rear wheels came off that Pontiac :laughing:

I love Clarkson and co, but feel they were starting to get boring, everything the same done out thing. I cancelled my Amazon subscription, bought it only for Grand Tour, watched a few of the first season and one of the second. Just didn't have the time to go back and watch the rest and kinda felt a bit switched off sadly. The bit with the person in the river was way too repetitive.

Exactly my thoughts, I still have Prime but never bothered to watch any others after a few of Season 1.

 

New TG is funny and fresh - if you can't laugh at the Trans Am scene or the Golf range bit  then the problem isn't the TV show :)

It’s just as easy to press No. 2 as it is No. 1.

Clarkson and Co?

How would you be able to make that judgement without watching?

I have tried watching a few episodes of the latest series but just cant get to grips with the presenters. Still very wooden and trying too hard for me, content is ok but desperately in need of some new ideas. It was always going to be hard following a sucessful long running TV series I would give it five out of ten, still needs some more work for me to watch it again.

I think you need to watch it for what it is rather than comparing it to old TG.

I like the fact there's not too much 'serious' road test of cars that only a handful of people can afford, in fact the less road tests the better! :)

All the larking around with cheap bangers & challenges I like, it's the sort of thing I'd get up to with mates for a laugh.

Also good that there's no star in the car every week! :)

Looking forward to tonights episode. :)
