Show description from Amazon:

 

"Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May are back with The Grand Tour. A show about adventure, excitement and friendship... as long as you accept that the people you call friends are also the ones you find extremely annoying. Sometimes it's even a show about cars. Follow them on their global adventure. Episodes contain product placement."

 

So, 'cars' are mentioned once and even then it's in a phrase which diminishes their relevance. If you're watching it mainly for the cars, you're watching the wrong show.

Top Gear has alas influenced a generation of Car shows and due to it's popularity with boy's of a certain age the production company's of other once great shows tried desperately to chase ratings and tried in vain to follow suit. The result is we now don't have a proper car review and analysis show apart from Evo and there online videos, now Evo would make a cracking program as all the contributers are either racers or reviewers so revered by the manufacturers that they already get cars before anyone else hell even before there show reveal in some instances and of course the piece de resistance they discuss the mechanicals.

Didn't realise it was yesterday. Saw the trailers looked ok. Although wouldn't subscribe to Amazon Prime or pay to watch it.

really looking forward to this. I love roadtrip shows, good banter, excellent locations and camera work, should be a great show. Used to love all the top gear Christmas specials - I could watch the Vietnam special, middle east special and Bolivia special over and over again. India and Patagonia not so much. So hoping for more of the same.

 

Couldn't care less if they review cars or not - they could drive around in Tuk Tuks or be on skateboards, i'd still watch it. As been said before youtube and EVo are the place for serious car reviews, but even then theres only so many times you can watch a new sportscar being driven sideways around Blyton Park or Anglesey.

Ep2 has no cars in it at all, according to Clarkson on R2 with Steve Wright yesterday. And possibly Ep8 as well, he thinks.

Quite. It was always about Clarkson's inane ranting and the chemistry between the three of them. I'm looking forward to seeing it, no spoilers please!

Balls, I'll miss it.

Will catch up tomorrow. Gotta be better than the new Top Gear, sheesh, that show is appalling.

Watched it this morning, loved it!

 

Col, Prime is cheaper in this period - £59/year, worth subscribing if you're buying from Amazon often.

You can do a 30 day trial with prime.

 

Amazon prime video only is £5.99/month, the interface is rubbish compared to Netflix but I kept the video bit going just to see what the show was like. The car bits looked good, sadly they still kept the stupid celebrity section. Apparently Amazon spent £4.5/million per episode, Clarkson must have wished he got sacked from the BBC sooner!!

I did, but it would have been better if they just didn't bother at all with it, let hope they don't bother with that waste of time segment in later episodes.

They've got some decent other stuff, Mr Robot and Man In The High Castle spring to mind.

I think if I actually watched TV much I might, but I really don't. One of those odd balls that probably watches about 30 mins TV a week max. Netflix is for my little Alfie to watch his kids programmes.

Pointless really, you can get 100% Prime for another 2 quid a month

Torrents can turn ugly, for me Kodi has been the safest bet so far.

Just install Kodi, then add TVAddons Installer and then grad the Video Add-On "Exodus", then you are all sorted for any kind of TV viewing, be it Netflix, Amazon Prime etc.

All for free of course ;)

Better than I'd feared, there's more "acting" than usual which is only a bad thing, interesting to see what the series brings if there are genuinely "no cars" episodes. Considerably better than hearing Evans present!

 

It's also clever how they've called it GT, which is TG backwards.
