It seems like builders where briefed about the presenters "personalities" and told to prepare 3 cars without too much knowledge about the actual conditions of the trip. James' car was obviously set up more for street use. I'm sure that if he had more involvement in the build process, he would have specified more suitable tires, and a stock or lifted suspension.I'd also like to point out that it felt like the presenters were completely detached from their cars. They didn't build them, they likely had zero input on them being built and were mostly completely uninterested in them.
Actually those are among my favorite episodesSigh. Not really sure what to vote.
Remember that TG ambulance episode or the young hot hatch one? TGT feels like every episode is going that way.
Too pessimistic. I think the first series on amazon is going well enough to improve greatly in the second series. I have hope it gets better. They were all off for more than a year so a little rust is to be expected. And definitely expected since they had to also create a new platform with so much they cannot use from TG. Have patience, it'll get better.As we all know Top Gear is dead. And The Grand Tour can't rekindle that fire. Even if it's the same producer in charge with the 3 that everyone wanted. That flame can't live.
While honestly I did enjoy these two episodes; it still not enough. The magic, unfortunately is gone.
I still stand with what I said that after these 3 seasons that Amazon contracted them; Amazon will cancel the show. And Jeremy, Richard and James will go back to the BBC for one last if not two seasons of Top Gear. That is of course if they're not too old by then. Because we already know the BBC wants them back, especially after the disaster of last season of Top Gear.
Amazon has a lot of money. And they can subsidize the losses of TGT, but even Amazon with all their money will eventually say enough is enough.
Season 2 of TGT has to greatly improve for my prediction to not come true.
Totally agree, it was better than the first part, but the ending prevents me from giving a 10. Nice 9, 8 overall.I really liked this one though I kinda felt it was a bit anti climactic. For some reason I was expecting something to happen after they used the cable car thing but Hammond just got stuck and that was that. In the old days they'd have said, "Back to the studio" and then cap off the episode but for some reason with this special they didn't bother. I guess it's the hassle of setting up the tent but when I think about it, it was sort of missing here.
