I watched it live and yeah.. it wasn't good. First off I think they have WAYYYY too many cast members, so how the hell can they build the camaraderie that that James, Richard, and Jeremy have? It's just too watered down with different personalities. The worst part is that just last night I fired up an episode of Top Gear USA and I actually chuckled quite a bit and enjoyed it. Adam, Rut, and Tanner legitimately look like they all get along in real life and have FUN with the show now. Maybe the "new" Top Gear just needs more time, but I'm not feeling it yet. Chris Evans SUCKS though, I already know this. Chris Harris would have made a MUCH better host in my mind.
Hopefully "The Grand Tour" starts soon and I can have a number 1 car show again. Right now I just watch Velocity channel until I'm drowsy when I have time
