Yep, looks good. More Harris is a good thing.

I gave up on Grand Tour in the end, it was shite.

Looking forward to his now, got rid of what I hated about the last series and hopefully theyll bin the crappier parts of the studio stuff with him.

Hopefully after the grand tour turned out to be mostly shite, people will be willing to give this more of a chance this time.

I'll watch this and hopefully it will be better without Chris Evans.

I'll give it a go, I like the grand tour at the end it became much better and more about fun and entertainment with cars as they found their feet.

I quite agreed with you there.

Captain America would have been odd without him onscreen though.

Be a bit like Garfield without Garfield. All action sequences explained by Antman. I'd watch it.

Yeah the scripted studio banter is actually painful to watch. I should probably watch beyond episode 1 of The Grand Tour sometime.

Indeed, just skip the studio bits and it becomes very good.

I thought that was great and was massively better than Grand Tour.
The Ferrari opening segment was amazing.

I'm in the "that was pretty good" camp as well, but then I enjoyed it with Evans as well (obviously it's better without) so maybe not the best barometer of opinion...

I liked it. New set looks great and while I'm still not a huge fans of the celeb segment that was still massively, massively, massively better than the excruciating celeb head to head segments from last year.


A positive for me was the show never felt like it was trying to completely replicate Clarksons Top Gear. The biggest weakness of the last series was the parts where Harris was trying too hard to be Clarkson. This still had comedy moments but they avoided going full Jeremy.

I skipped the celeb bits but really enjoyed the rest.
