    The Grand Tour

    Great to see Jeremy, Richard & James back on tv at last!
    I thought the first episode was brilliant - so much better now they're with Amazon.
    The eboladrome looks a blast! Imagine it was included in project cars 2

    What do you guys think of the new show?

    I enjoyed it. It felt like old Top Gear which is both good and bad. I was hoping to see them take a bit more of a new approach now that they are away from the BBC, but anything with the 3 of them is excellent IMO.

    The montage of coming films had me very (s)excited

    Don't know if I need to say that or not but I will just in case.

    I thought it was very good overall. The only thing I didn't really like was the whole fake argument thing with the audience, I find the three funnier when they're just being themselves or joking around. Everything else I thought was fantastic, especially the initial intro with them riding through to that festival/concert (the soundtrack to that was spot-on too). I thought it was faithful enough to the old Top Gear format but at the same time had a nice new feel to it that made it feel like it's own show.

    It was certainly better than the awful Top Gear reboot.
    ...You've seen how I react to people, make them feel good, make them think that anything's possible. If I make them laugh along the way, sue me. And I don't do it so they turn round and go 'Thank you David for the opportunity, thank you for the wisdom, thank you for the laughs.' I do it so, one day, someone will go 'There goes David Brent. I must remember to thank him.'

    I thought it was great. Yeah the fake argument with the audience wasn't that good and they could have skipped the whole celebrity death sequence but overall I thought it was fantastic.

    Good show. Keen to see the rest. Seemed they were just happy to be working together again in the first episode; it'll be better once the "honeymoon period" is over and they're properly getting at each other again.
    New Top Gear would've been good without the "star in a Mini RX lap" and Chris Evans (glasses fella). He seems to really not bring anything to the show but I rate Harris and le Blanc.

    Evans was a bust, glad to see he's gone. Not too keen on Le Blanc being the main guy as Harris is a profession automotive journalist, and a damn good racing driver as well.

    Evans is out? Guess I'll watch the next season then.
    I was shattered when Harris' GT3 race in the Bentley ended. He had other great behind-the-scenes endurance race footage/coverage on his YT channel. He brings that to Top Gear and I think it's fantastic.
    Say... Have the TG trio become the GT trio now?

    That was much better than last week. Best episode yet. Still think they could do without celebrity brain crash though!
