I know I am going against the trend here, but I'm warming more and more to the latest incarnation of Top Gear and I enjoyed this episode the most to date.
Zenos E10 S: So Chris Evans can talk without shouting, even when driving a car so loud he should be. Imagine that. Now if he could just bring his "narration voice" back into the studio segments... Overall, I found it a decent review.
BMW M2: I have never seen any of Chris Harris' videos, so I am not familiar with his "normal" reviewing style and how it compares to his "Top Gear" reviewing style. As I noted last episode, if he is channelling Clarkson, IMO he is not doing a right hash of it as I like his reviews.
SIARCC: Two great guests whose time was wasted with the new "interview" format.
Jaguar F-Type SVR Delivery Drive: Again, finding Rory Reid to be a pleasure. With a full season under his belt, I think he could be a solid contender as one of the primary presenters. Yes, clearly staged and scripted, but still enjoyed it no less for that.
Rolls Royce Dawn: Matt LeBlanc was the right choice for this one. He has that low-key James May vibe and while May would have been much more knowledgable about what makes a Roller, both in general and in this particular case, special, LeBlanc came across as at least competent.
Rolls Royce Dawn vs Rolls-Royce Corniche: Not rubbish, but also not ambitious. Honestly, it's no worse than Hammond holding a public vote between an Aston Martin DB9 Volante and a puppy and doing something like the Grosser vs. Corniche challenge would have been horribly unfair to the Corniche. So maybe it was all we could ask for.
