Not really. They don't shoot the films in the order in which they are broadcast and it was clear from the film there is already a decent chemistry between the three which they have all said in pre-season interviews.Seemed kind of strange to jump into a bro-cation in Ethiopia without the hosts knowing each other. Just seemed a little off. Still thinking I would have rather Chris Harris do the show completely by himself with an occasional visit from other people like Sabine. Seriously BBC, just let Harris take the reigns. Ultimately 6/10, may have to watch it again.
The whole series has been short but enjoyable IMHOTo whet your appetite, episode 5 had real unplanned but quite successful participation in that bonkers Icelandic extreme rally / hill climbing thing (genuine competition and no silly set up situations), a genuinely interesting look at the development and impact of the Lotus 79 F1 car (the one that introduced skirts) - including Chris handling original wind tunnel models and driving the actual championship car... And Will Young was an actually fun guest as well.
