    9/10...Probably my favorite episode so far. Even celebrity brain crash was kind of funny (although I seriously hope they ditch it next series). Couple that with no American, actual genuine moments of humor and a lack of forced comedic bits and you have a very solid episode. Even if it was just...

    I gave this one a 6/10 On paper, to me, it had the look of something special. All 3 go on a road trip in used Maseratis? Sign me up! But it just didn't have that magic...it just didn't have the charm I've come to expect through the years of CHM adventures. Don't get me wrong, I thought it had...

    Eh, kind of a mixed bag again. Some good parts like Clarkson's review and parts of the reef film. But one consistent element so far has been their films go on way too long and if it's a thin premise to begin with, man does it get old and tired by the end. Every time they come to the states...

    [01x08] December 31st, 2016 [Namibia Special, Part 2]

    I completely disagree. There were tons of genuine moments within top gear. Even during the more scripted segments, there were plenty of times where you could tell the emotions you were seeing were real. And it is very easy to tell the difference because all 3 of them are atrocious actors so it...

    This is a forum to discuss the good and bad of the show. everything not liked about a show is complaining or whining? How so? Besides a few posts I have seen, most of the criticism has been just and warranted...no need to defend the show from every post that that doesn't paint this as...

    [01x08] December 31st, 2016 [Namibia Special, Part 2]

    I think you certainly could have cut some of the filler out and made a 1hr 15min extended episode. It rambled on a bit and some of the parts (poacher hunting/shooting Hammond, hiring the butler, cable car etc) were pretty lame and not at all necessary. So while not perfect I still very much...

    I agree but I also think it was somewhat foolish on their part that every segment was filmed so far in advance and they had no option to adjust as the season progressed. I know certain segments had to be done at certain times but not everything. Did they really sit in the editing room and watch...

    TGT is a fail and here's why

    I respectfully disagree. I have not gotten the impression that anyone wanted an actual car review show. I think people were just hoping for the glory days of Top Gear. And that, to me, is the main problem in my view and I am just as guilty at setting too lofty of expectations and hoping this...

    TGT is a fail and here's why

    Calling it a failure may be a bit harsh but I do agree on some of your points. I don't think there is anyway to tell if the 3 season contract is going to be a success or failure at this point it is far too early. And I have enjoyed the last two episodes the most so far and I feel like they are...

    That's my hope...but I am still chalking it up to they are finding their footing and figuring exactly what type of show they are making. Still very early in the process

    I noticed that too! Cracked me up. Was it like that for the other episodes or just that one?

    I have been thinking about Friday's episode over the last couple days, and while I thought it was a rebound from last week's and I gave it an 8/10 (I think sub consciously I am rating these on its potential to get better). I don't even honestly know if I really liked it that much. Just from a...

    A much better episode than last week's big disappointment. The cinematography during the Italian tour was spectacular and the cars were gorgeous...even the brown Aston :lol: Got really tired of the Hammond bit though. Were they going for so over the top that they wanted viewers to turn it off...

    But its not even unofficial humor filled reviews about cars :dunno: CHM at heart are petrol heads and their talent shines best at goofing off in ridiculously expensive or just plain ridiculous cars. I don't want hard nose automotive journalism from them just the same gold they are the best in...

    First time forum poster...hey all Been a TG fan for ages and am happy to see the boys finally back! With that in mind, here are my thoughts on the latest episode. Things I liked: - The tent segments I thought were MUCH smoother and less forced. This is a great sign going forward as every...
