Default Any one watch the new top gear?



I cant believe how bad it was. why is chris harris not the main host, and why is it split into two shows?

I stopped after there was the whole "indian restaurant on a car" or whatever the hell that was. Just couldn't take it and the fiance was not enjoying it. I did hear the Matt Leblanc segment was pretty good.

If Leblanc and Harris could take the limelight that would be a great move. Evans blows, he's awkward on camera and just not really that great of a host.

And bake the ExtraGear segment into the main show, what the hell were they thinking making it a two part deal? FWIW - I'd rather watch the second segment...

The drive in the Reliants was a pathetic thing - what did it prove or demonstrate? No humor in it at all and everybody knows Reliants are terrible from the original thrashings Clarkson gave them. Make new adventures and be creative. Ditto for the Top Gun segment - weak and wimpy with the faux guns & runs. At least the original version of that encounter involved aircraft.

Hoping the Grand Tour is much more of the magic we enjoyed on the original TopGear.

Evans just plain sucks. Dump him and move on with Harris as the main host with Rory and Sabine. Give LeBlanc time to see if becomes less awkward in studio and it may work. Otherwise bring on The Grand Tour.

Agreed. Evans still sucks and needs to go though.

Chris is a prick. I haven't watched the second episode yet but, I will tomorrow. The show was slow and stumbly. It just needs some time. It is Top Gear and BBC they will sink money into even if the Monarchy has to live on the street.
