You stopped just before it started to improve.
Agree with all your points!
I also don't understand why they involve meat/dead animals etc all the time? they try to upset vegetarians or something?
After the Morocco episode I don't know if I want to watch it anymore...
About the tent maybe it has something to do with some copyrights issues or something that they try to avoid.
I like it.

Not a fail by any means in my book. In the end, we all like different things, and you certainly can't satisfy everyone all the time. There have been better and worse segments, but there always have been such. I'll be glad to watch just about anything the three guys -- together or individually -- care to broadcast. There is a MASSIVE amount of stuff on television that I wouldn't spend one minute watching, so I appreciate having CHM back in business.
I have a question for you: is TIME the real problem for TGT?
Do they have enough time to film all the material needed to put a great show together or is the timetable so strict, they have to rush it all?
Think about it: 12 episodes and as soon as the season finishes, they have to start filming again...

Think about it: they have to come up with story ideas that are memorable enough to top what's been done in the past (Reliant space shuttle, supercars tour France, best driving road, etc.) And they're hamstrung by (a) the demands of the audience and (b) the fact that they're not as resilient as they used to be and (c) the fact that they're now in charge of measuring their own risk.
And (d) legal restrictions that prevent them from entirely using the old show's format. Nevertheless, TGT is hardly a failure--so far Amazon seems pleased and even the average episode ratings on this board have been good.
It seems that stecube is using "alternative facts" for this topic.

The biggest difference between Top Gear and The Grand Tour for me is there hasn't been a single episode of TGT that I've wanted to watch twice. It's all too disposable. Even the last series of Top Gear had episodes I've watched several times - the classic car and leisure lifestyle episode included.
The recent road trip episodes don't seem like they have any point to them. It's like they made them up as they went along. The bigger budget has had a detrimental effect on the substance of the show too. That said, I'll continue to watch it and hopefully it'll improve.
