    So I believe the Premiere is Friday, who's looking forward to the new TG?

    I know I am.

    Surely you mean the new GT?

    Will be interesting to see if its the same overly staged crap or back to the good old days when the top gear challenges were funny and good to watch.

    Nope cant stand Clarkson!

    P.S Amusing story how they missed a flight due to an Argentine/Spaniard working at the airport. Serves them right...

    Or some say it was Clarkson boozing that caused the delay.

    You can try 30 days trial of Amazon Prime for free if this does help, just don't forget to cancel after 30 days because you will be charged

    Hope this helps

    Thanks, Jura

    I just finished watching it. Other than a few cheeseball moments overall I thought it was good. They haven't skipped a beat! :)

    It was a pretty epic first episode. The new money influx is immediately obvious. The opening scene alone makes it clear.

    All in all it was a pretty solid opening. If you liked Top Gear you will love this. If you didn't like Top Gear you're probably a tool anyways.

    So people are tools because they dont like a programme you watch!?!

    Well done Einstein you reached bottom of the class with this comment.

    How about shoving it where the sun dont shine? And FYI personally I liked bits of Top gear just dislike Clarkson and am not that bothered about cars although I have owned a classic car in my time...am a spiderheard/animal head rather than a petrolhead.

    P.s always gotta be someone trolling in anything related to topgear I suppose.

    meh it was OK. They didn't really do anything new though. It was the exact same show just with the different segments renamed. I was hoping for something a bit different.

    Probably playing it safe for the 1st episode to keep a fan base. There's really not a whole lot more you can do with a car show...

    Loved this! They really captured the "boys are back in town"-vibe and the chemistry between the three is still there. More PLEASE!... NOW! :D

    I liked it! Totally took me back to the good ol' TG days with the boys. I have to say, with all my car knowledge and math skills the ending totally threw me. I would have made the same bet that Clarkson did. After I picked my jaw up off the floor, I decided it was down to the tires. The P1 needs its stickier tires, like Clarkson was trying to say at the end of the show, to really exploit the potential it has on track.

    All in all it was awesome to see such an even comparison of the Holy Hypercar Trinity after waiting for so long. Looking forward to next week.
