Not too impressed so far, clearly the budget is still there but there is feck all chemistry between the new presenters.

Less Chris Evans and more Matt Le Plank.

Lame, lame, lame!! Gordon plum Ramsey talking about his two new 1m quid Ferrarris?
If the best personality so far is a dork kid who doesn't drive, this show is toast!

Clarkson must be laughing in his Amazon underpants

Evans is just not funny, Le Blanc is pretty much dialling it in and the German lass got about 30 seconds of airtime.

Watched it all. Wish I hadn't. The new presenters are doing nothing for the show. Just not the same without the three stooges of Clarkson, May and Hammond.

In short - it's 'Meh'.

The five mins I watched were completely flat. Even the Fifth Gear presenters are funnier.

I give it one series.

Chris Evans obviously didn't read up all the details on the banter clause.

It needs a third main presenter. Maybe Simon Cowell - he likes his cars.

A more suitable suggestion. However it would be the Americanisation of a British show.

didn't get chance to watch it, but it took the last set of presenters a while to settle in - they even got rid of one bloke after a series IIRC

Haven't seen it, but I'm not surprised. We've seen how flat the OZ and US versions are. The Brit version was more about the interaction of the three idiots than about the cars.

Just watching on iPlayer. Evans trying way too hard to channel Jeremy Clarkson. He's an annoying shit to start with, but channeling another annoying shit makes him exponentially worse.

Yep, pretty ordinary all round. Evans is trying too hard, MLB looks a bit lost. Needs a 3rd name and much more chemistry. They should have gone for something a lot more different - this is a pale imitation.

Quite liked the rally cross circuit - but other than that :yawn:

He bullies other staff and is a control freak. Or so says the reports. Apparently he made a female member of staff cry.

Shocking stuff.

Hopefully you lot end it all.

It's just dreary grey suits and a life of excel spreadsheets for you, plums.

No more Clarkson racism, Hammond cliches and May whatever he does.




Until the Autumn. Then the aspirational car porn can begin pointlessly once more.

Summed it up for me when LeBlanc shunted Evans in the reliant and Evens smiles and laughs. It Assumed that shunting is funny because it's funny, not because it's going to wind the other one up until he calls you a plum, then reciprocates. This for me was the earliest shark jump on record.

MLB is potentially much better than Chris Evans. He at least has some charisma.

But without the back-history that at least gave the jokes some context.
