Good fun ep3. Even the celeb bit is fun and just seems like some friends or colleagues chatting. Hope it continues and builds in the same vein.

Bit mixed on the last episode maybe (mainly JK - great music but comes across a bit, erm, full of himself) but was nice to see a challenge done well and made to succeed. Even the awkward presenting in extra gear is fine as I like the 'extra' bits and behind the scenes work.

Hopes are up for a good next series!

Didnt mind the last epsiode. to be fair, i think clarkson and top gear go hand in hand. without it, both shows feel flat.

They need to get rid of Rory and Chris. There are LOADS of youtubers who are on roadtrips in monaco at the moment, and the chemistry and car knowledge is there. They'd work much better!

they need to give rory more than one line. He's great in the films but gets a token link for the rest and just insta-hands back to le blanc

Bit late to the party with this reply but I'm of the opposite view to it feeling flat. Thought it felt refreshed and pretty vibrant. Yeah, some of the links are a bit awkward or feel very staged atm but I didn't mind that.

And yes to Rory, more screen time could work well - enjoy watching his pieces. Chris is also enjoyable to watch - he's super enthusiastic and I guess could get annoying with it but has an infectious love for what he's doing.

Saying that, I hope the Grand Tour originals come up with something better in their next season.
