"Paddy, Freddie and Chris head on a British summer holiday in super-cheap second-hand convertibles. Chris tests the new Ariel Atom on track, and Freddie attempts to bungee-jump an old Rover off a dam."



And from the first segment, it's pretty crap

I enjoyed it. Wasn't spectacular but these guys are at least having fun rather than just going through the motions like CHM for the last few years of TG and TGT.

The last segment, the drop, was pretty good. The Atom test was OK, but the first one was terrible..

The bungee drop was good for sure, the rest pretty meh.

Better than expected, but then again, I expected nothing.

The cheap car challenge was once again ruined by challenges designed to destroy the cars. Golf was at least funny, though.
The bungee jump was good. I wish they had bothered to explain some of the engineering behind it....

S28 is awesome so far ... Me & my wife both enjoy it very much. I think this new trio work great together.

We're 8 months behind here in the States (interesting we don't get TG concurrently on BBC America anymore) so just seeing this now and I found in entertaining enough.
