    [23x06] July 3rd, 2016 -- Evans final episode

    Haven't watched it yet, but I will be skipping the star segment this week regardless of who the guests are.

    EDIT - Watching now, Evans has that yellow shirt on again. First segment with Chris Harris reviewing the new NSX was very good.

    EDIT 2 - The star segment is 15 minutes long this time. I don't care if it makes my rating "invalid" in the eyes of certain people here but I am not watching that shit.

    Good episode, more consistent quality across each segment.

    Star segment was good. Watching some of the guests on other shows, they actually sometimes are better on TG than on the talk shows.

    Odds are its not CE's last epiosde

      I think this was the best episode of the current series BY FAR.

      I'm giving this one a 6/10.

      That said if Chris Evans is back next year after all the shit that's come out this weekend I will not be watching. That freak has to go.

        NSX- Found it interesting but not entertaining, something I can't quite put my finger on about Harris that makes me not warm to his style, still prefer him to Evans though.
        Mustangs - Not bad and a reasonable mix of information, facts and fun. Reid reviews are more Top Gearish than Harris imo.
        SIARC - Think I would still hate this segment in its current form even if Evans wasn't doing it.
        911R - Went on a bit too long but I like Matt's comedy style, reminds me of previous Top Gear more than the other stuff in this episode. Nice to see the stig appear for more than the 1 lap.
        Classics - Might be more interesting if you don't remember Clarkson doing the same in Series 6.
        Car jump - Seemed like a late filler, possibly in place of the filming in Norway that got cancelled or something similar?

        6/10 - Evans really needs a change of clothes, he was also getting a bit louder in the studio than the last few weeks. Although I wouldn't call this episode and indeed the whole series a total failure, I'm still not warming to the show and it's just not that entertaining or fun for me, just mildly interesting on occasion. Think I laughed more at the recent 1 minute Clarkson/Hammond Facebook video for TGT South Africa than this whole series.

            Whoever wrote, edited this episode, figured out what the presenters are best at. Harris for the supercar geeky stuff, LeBlanc for the car driving experience, Reid for everyman car and Evans for the classics/british pride.
            A good meat and potatos episode, imho the max this ensamble of presenters can do. The longer challenges is still a thing they need to crack, but for that you need time and chemistry. Getting wet with muddy water is a possible way to go.

            Anyway I'll give it a 6/10, which makes it the highest rated episode from me and first with a positive number. Will check season 2.

              Rory is a great host. 911R segment was also great. I feel this whole thing could work. Needs time to congeal.

                I don't know what to say, other than I guess this would be OK if it was Fifth Gear.
                There is no essence left of what made CHM's Top Gear, Top Gear.

                    Pretty solid episode. Like Fifth Gear but with higher production values. Don't expect CHM-like fun, just nice high-end car reviews (on the positive side: no tired yokes). Star segment too loud and too long, but nice guests.

                    Agreed. Spot on analysis.

                      5/10

                      Just get rid of Elmer J Fudd... I had enough.

                      The more I tried the worst it was, even for his clothes that he kept on for 6 weeks.

                      If he's back I am out for good even if I like the others.

                        - NSX bit is glorious, a nice blend of Harris and TG. I'd like to see a bit more Harris but this will do
                        - the lap, CE actually got closer to the mic this time but his lines are so terrible and not at all convincing. GET RID OF THE STUPID HIPSTER SHOES!
                        - Rory killed it, as usual
                        - interview, no. Go away
                        - Matt did a remarkably good bit
                        - CE bit, less shouty amazingly. That MG completely missed the point of being a MG which is in line with CE himself: completely missed the point
                        - Long jump, meh it didn't do it for me. Eddy, just stop. You're a great guy but for some reason you're acting like a clown on TG. You don't need that


                        If you cut away the interview and MG bit (so pretty much CE) and without the last long jump bit this episode would get an 8 from me. With those items it drops to a 6, would I not have been able to skip sections and have to endure the bad bits it'd drop to a 4.5

                          After this episode, I could watch a Top Gear with just MLB, Harris and Rory. Ditch everyone else and the star segment and there's a really good show in there.

                          Harris is Harris, MLB has been solid and a bit above expectations, but Rory has really been the break out star for me. I'd never heard of him before, but his segments have gotten better and better.

                            I actually really like Matt as a presenter.
                            Harris is obviously a keeper, ditto Rory, and I have no opinion on Sabine.
                            Jettison Evans and Jordan and you will have a damn fine show on your hands.
                            If this was the first season of a brand new show, I'd give it an 8/10.
                            As its Top Gear, 6.5/10

                              I enjoy the NSX piece -7.9 ( still getting use to Chris and his style, really like the new NSX)
                              I enjoyed the Mustang piece a bit more than the NSX -8( I hate Mustangs, so it was for Rory)
                              Interview- no comment, skipped it-0
                              Matt's Porsche piece-8
                              CE's MGB piece-6, would of been higher if someone else did it.
                              The filler , err long jump- 5

                              Now that season is over, I am going to say the biggest surprises for me is Matt and Rory , I really enjoyed everything Rory did, and Matt really surprised me, and he got better over the six episodes. Chris Harris , I am warming up to him, as for Sabine and Eddie, they really did not add anything to the show over all, and it seemed like they were trying to find stuff for them to do.

                              Now, if they would shit can CE, the show might actually get better, overall, for this first series of the reboot, I cant go much higher than a 5, while there were many strong points, they cant over come CE

                                I have just finished watching Extra Gear and seeing Ried, Harris, Schmith and Leblanc talking nicely on a couch was pretty cool. The chemistry is there for me.

                                  Agreeing with some of you guys- LeBlanc, Harris and Rory don't need the others. Evans HAS to go. He's been pushed back somewhat- notice how much more of the studio stuff LeBlanc has been doing? -but he's still an obnoxious shouty twat. And what purpose does Eddie Jordan serve- turns up, stands there, acts baffled- how much is he paid for that?!

                                  THere's the bones of a reasonable motoring show in there, but it's still a mish-mash of old, new and shite at the minute.

                                    I thought that was pretty good, would've been nice to get power laps of the other cars online if not on the show but I guess they've just decided that they only do 1 power lap per show. All the reviews I was happy with Evan's one was better then his last reviews as a whole. I kinda hope they find more for Eddie Jordon to do next series.

                                        We? What the hell 'We' ? What exactly did you do for TopGear before this season huh? Before you stepped in, fucked it over and ruined it you opportunistic, incompetent hipster cunt?
