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.
But I don't think you can. It is the old Top Gear in terms of production and content. Ok the in a car has gone thank god for that but the show is fundamentally the same. So what we default to is saying what was it like before vs how is it now.
I think they take some getting used to. But whilst I found them really annoying to begin with that has lessened I'd say. The show they did recently in Peru had some good parts to it. You'll never get away from the fact that Chris is the only real driver there but I think if you give it a go it isn't that bad. I'm trying to be fair here.
