New series of Top Gear start tonight, are you going to watch it...

I for one won't be, it can only ever be a poor imitation of what it was originally.

After Clarkson and as good as Matt LeBlanc is, nothing is going to as good as the original. As for ginger, the less said the better. 

I know where I am, I've been lost here before.

Much like The Grand Tour, and Top Gear has been a poor imitation of itself at various times through​out it's history...

I'll give it a chance though!

With Evans gone and Rory Reid and Chris Harris joining MLB in more prominent roles I'm hopeful it'll be much improved.

Not to sure what you mean @DaveyH as regards the Grand Tour. I thought it was brilliant and looking forward to the second season later this year.

It was tedious and cringe worthy. Utter trash IMO.

Wow! Wasn't expecting that, but I have to say I think you may well be part of a minority there. But you are of course entitled to your opinion. Smiley

Nope, LeBland was ok in friends but the last series of TG totally put me off the bloke. Most of the time they were all just driving round making as much noise as they could and generally doing seriously pointless stuff.

At least with the original three they'd get a challenge, screw it up, bodge it, fail and pretend it was an astounding success. The new mob in the last series were just wasting time until they could actually come up with a plot.. and even then all they came up with was to let ginger go mental yelling at people.

I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!

Well I changed my mind and gave it a go... worst 20 minutes of BBC viewing in the last decade. The 7 week preview they showed was a load of trash too. The best part of the show was seeing an old Nimrod on the TG track.

RIP Top Gear.

Sounds like my choice to watch a 13 year old episode of Midsomer Murders on ITV 3 was a good idea then.

 

I used to watch a lot of car related programs in the past, but the only car related shows i watch now are The Grand Tour & Jay Lenos Garage on Dave, given up on the rest of them.

I gave up in the middle of Kazakhstan. A lot better without Shouty, but still doesn't have the magic of the proper TG.

Now Zen, but a +Net residue.
