I say we give them a break about the studio bits. The Evans series will have done a great deal to put guests off appearing. I think this format shows to potential guests that they do get an input beyond a plug and being patronised by an ego and in time gearhead celebrities will be keen to sign up to appear. The issue to my mind isn't the format as it is but the guests they can persuade to appear.
There are enough gearhead famous people around, and once they realise they can be an integral part of the episode in which they appear rather than just a foil for an egomaniac host then I suspect that whole segment will improve dramatically. #
In the meantime give these guys a break. An impossible act to follow was made almost insurmountable by the dreadful decision to appoint Chris Evans as the main host. I think they're doing just fine. Give them constructive criticism, but for crying out loud don't kick them where it hurts. This current incarnation of TG is already better than much of the last few seasons of CHM TG and if we allow them time to grow then I reckon they can hit the high points that we all remember so fondly from years past.
