I am enjoying the first episode a lot. I like this mix of presenters. It's a bit silly sometimes, and whilst it will never be Clarkson and Co, whom I remain a fan of, this is a show I'd be happy to watch ongoing. I think it's a shame Rory is no longer, I actually thought he was good enough to be lead presenter, but that never worked out. He is now over at Autocar and doing a fantastic job.

 

Oh my GOD that Ferrari SF90! So beautiful!

It still feels forced and more like a stag do, nothing will ever compare to the 3 amigos. The Ferrari is stunning though

There are elements of it, but it's the first time in a while I've laughed out loud. It's a little infectious.

 

I don't mind it, let's see if they can keep it together.

Is it available on TVNZ onDemand? I quite enjoyed last season, so will happily watch the new season.

Same, Paddy really annoys me. 

 

GT hasn't captured me the way I thought it would. 

 

I wonder the significance for TG of the move to a different BBC channel. Doesn't this indicate a drop in it's perceived value by the BBC?

Didn't they joke they moved to bbc1?  I thought that was like our channel 1, so the "serious" channel.  That's the only bit I saw as it was late last night I started it, and realised I wouldn't finish it.

Clarkson & co had plenty of mediocre TG episodes :-) . We tend to remember the good ones.
At one point there was talk that Clarkson & co were past it & should be replaced , then that talk changed after they all left.

 


I thought this one was very average. Not bad, just a very average TG episode .
Im sure it will improve . It should have been their best , being the season opener  .

 

No Chemistry between them .
I preferred Mat LeBlanc & Co to those other 2 .
