Not even a little bit, Go back and honestly watch Series 1 of Top Gear and you'll see that apart from a few minor things you could easily see a lot of the stuff they did on that show as old Top Gear. The transition away from Old Top Gear despite the format change take until as far as Series 3 and 4. Series 4 being the first proper year of Top Gear as we knew it. I think you are just letting emotion get in the way because like what Clarkson and Wilman did with Top Gear Evans is taking what he liked from the old series and trying to make his own show and at the start it's going to carry the same sort of tone but he's introduced things here and there which could get better etc etc.Well, the only thing CHM Top Gear had in common with the original Top Gear was the name and having cars in the show.
So CHM Top Gear was the original of its format, while The Annoying Ginger has done a poor job trying to copy that format.
It's a huge difference, so I thought the analogy with Total Recall was spot on.
When The Grand Tour launches I'm betting everyone will be just as surprised when they see that it's basically Top Gear but in a different 'studio'.
