    i think they are def. purposely trying to piss off the BBC, especially with all that talk of "we cant say/do certain things because of copyright, etc"

    3rd episode my favourite so far....by quite a long way.

    The thing is i accept its going to be scripted, i enjoy it for what it is, but the camerawork and cinematography is top notch, i don't think there is another program which does it better.

    Yeah I laughed the whole way through the Italian trip. I thought it was the best one yet. Everything looks much better than it did on BBC America. The colors seem richer with more detail. I'm watching it through Xbox One.

    The major networks may be lagging behind online channels for quality.
    Here in Australia digital TV is at 480 (maybe 720). Gotta get cable + pay extra for SOME channels to be viewed at 1080 -_-
    Whereas even YouTube is streaming 1080.
    I thought Hammond could've been clever for once and stuck it to Clarkson and May by transporting his portrait on the tyre truck. But no. It's Hammond.

    I'm glad but almost surprised at how many say Ep 3 was the best. Given how many road trips they've broadcast before (including 'Greatest Road Trip Pt 1 + 2) this one just seemed more of the same but comparatively uninteresting.

    Best of the 3 new episodes so far?
    They've a fair way to go before matching the Patagonia/Bolivia/Burma/Polar specials...

    Best of the Grand Tour episodes.
    I agree old Top Gear and the specials they did were still much better than the Grand Tour because they were much less scripted.

    It was great to see them back, but I thought it was a little disappointing. It's probably going to take some time for them to find their feet and settle into a new format.
    It all seemed a bit stiff, and Clarkson and Co uncharacteristically seemed a little low on confidence.
    What's with the new track?? It looks very underwhelming.

    I hope Ian Bell gets a celebrity brain crash.Not that I want him dead, he just deserves to be shown to the world what a great job he and SMS do/are doing.
