First episode it out and it's awesome. Everything good about the old Top Gear, including the news (always my favourite part of Top Gear) and a test track.
It's a good day.

-emile-the us driver is shit but over all it's been good so far
ski.the.eastI'd be surprised if BBC wasn't kicking themselves at this point, so much potential money turned down
No.QuarterJesus Christ I just want that guy to shut the fuck up. So annoying. I wish the driver was like Randy Pobst in all of the motor trend videos and actually talked about the fine details of the handling
_faaaThis. I ve never heard of this american fucktwit who s supposed to be the stig before grand tour.
saskskierI don't think he was a previous Stig. There was a clip released from a future episode (I think) where they use Ben Collins as a 'Stig', but obviously they didn't end up using him, or at least not as their regular track guy.
I agree though. The American guy is crap.
_faaaOh I am sorry. I expressed myself wrong haha.
*I ve never heard before Grand Tour of this american fucktwit who s supposed to be the stig of Grand Tour.*
The current Stig the Grand Tour Team has chosen is for me totally unknown. Never heard of this guy before I ve seen the new Grand Tour episodes.
Sorry for the misunderstanding.
*DUMBCAN*Episode 1 was rad, but 2 was so fucking dreadful it's not funny. Ep3 was good though.
Overall unless they do any shit like Ep2 again it's just as good as peak BBC top gear, and way better than the last few seasons they did there.
I also think it's cool how their new set design etc has made BBC TG look like it's stuck in the wrong decade.
omIVThe show is great. But I have one complaint: the ladies in the audience. Top Gear had a >50:50 ratio. And hotter ladies.
Not that this impacts the quality of the segments, the guys' rapport, etc. But it's all in the small things, eh?
saskskierAgreed. I've read lots of comparisons between ep.2 and the homemade ambulance episode from Top Gear (series 21 or 22? I forget). Either way, it sucked (except for the Vulcan bit. That thing is insane).
I'm also not a fan of the celebrity bit where they keep killing them off. Not really sure what the point of that is.

No.QuarterI probably only watched through the celebrity interviews in the original top gear like 3 times in the whole show, so I'm kinda stoked they don't have it anymore, but the killing off of celebrities got old when they did it like 3 times in the first episode.
