I really enjoyed stuff like conversation street actually. The laps were not what they used to be on Top Gear but it was still enjoyable to see where the cars ranked. I even enjoyed the "Does that mean he's not coming on then" joke.
Ditto...the news on TG was always among my favourite moments of the show, as has been Conversation Street. And the best part of "Does that mean he's not coming on then" is that it meant no guests were coming on, which was also a bonus. I will miss the tent segments.
The only part of the studio segments I liked was when they provided more information about the cars they reviewed in the films, since these days they give scant technical details aside from top speed and 0-60. That or they would say I've driven the car around more after I made the film and have additional thoughts. They haven't done real news in years so I don't think we're missing much...
i prefer few high quality episodes (and i'm not talking about videography) over a high number of episodes
i'm a bit tired of their (by now very predictable) banter, but do still enjoy the trips they make
