Let me know when it pops up on Dave and I'll give it a watch.
Ep 4 was... OK... It's not horrible (not episode 2), but also not as good as Ep.3....
Unlikely at best haha
Yeah, it was ok'ish. No where near as bad as episode 2, but not great either.
last nights ep was excellent, CBC made me chuckle and thankfully was the only iffy bit, everything else felt very natural.
last nights episode was absolutely brilliant. James' film on the rivalry between Ford and Ferrari over LeMans was spectacular, well told and brilliantly shot.
I thoroughly enjoyed that. The cars, the James May bit, it was all right up my street.
I may or may not have a predisposition towards Ford...
It's also incredible in 4K HDR. Made the surprise TV purchase (55" Samsung 8000 series) by the missus even more awesome.
It was, it was. The last two episodes have been what was missing from GT - excellent stuff.
Except for Hammond, who increasingly needs to be let go with every episode that airs. I'm loving the fallout from his "eating an ice cream makes you look gay" quip. What a total nobber.
JS: Those 4K episodes on "the internets" are 35GB in size!
The ice cream thing was bizarre.
Reading some Facebook comments ( I know, I know)
And the usual crap is being said, "people are easily offended" "pc gone mad" etc etc.
Personally the issue isn't offensiveness, the issue is how did such a naff joke make it through editing.
Exactly. Like when he went off on one about Mexicans. It just wasn't funny at all and it kept on..
Hammond is the worst. Stewart Lee was right.
Its gearing up for him to be hurt again as they are out of ideas.
I'm finding this whole thing quite stale. In comparison, Season 20 of South-park has been absolutely incredible. Trey Stone / Matt Parker have done it for years and manage to keep it fresh, and more importantly funny.
This feels like a swansong tbh.
Just took Prime for the free first month and though I would have a look at The Grand Tour. First thing that struck me was how much weight all three of them had put on since i last saw them on Top Gear.
Edit: So the three presenters of Top Gear moved to Amazon and made more episodes but called it The Grand Tour? It had it's moments but overall same old same old tired format.
Just caught up on the Namibia double, and the Stuttgart episode - really enjoyed them all.
Some of the stuff is a bit too silly, and some a little over scripted but I found it more enjoyable than Top Gear.
That's what Amazon wanted, or they wouldn't have hired them.
Wasn't too fussed on the nambia special.
Particularly the first episode, they really overdid the bear grylls survival ********
Literally no one believes you guys are in any danger, you have a full production crew, cut out the nonsense and use the amazon money to fool around.
Personally I have found the last couple of episodes to be much more entertaining as they have basically took the piss, no pseudo attempts at realism.
For me the best part of the Nambia special was Hammond asking if anybody wanted a beer
So I caught up to Episode 10 over the weekend.
Some bits were great (mainly the bit about Ford and Ferrari, as already pointed out)
Some bits were iffy as anything. The bit about Clarkson building an SUV just irritated me. As did the bit with Hammond building a Bug Out.
I did enjoy the Namibia double (having grown up here), and while some of the shots were amazing, the scripting got in the way. Just to fit a story line in there, they cut shots together that ignore any and all of the Namibian geography, which irked me a bit.
Honestly, they could have filled two episodes just cruising around, marvelling at the country, and it would have been better.
maybe, but I want to watch the Grand Tour not Wish you were here.
