Yep, really enjoyed it. Chris Harris has really come into his own and is a great lead for the show imo. Didn't even mind the 'Star in a Reasonably Fast Car' format.

The only thing which was a bit awkward was the studio segment immediately after the Ferrari segment, Le Blanc and Harris need to work a little bit on how comfortable they seem together.

I think LeBlanc is the issue; very stiff/American. Good in the features but not in the links but that might get better.

Not watching. Can't stand the black guy, can't stand the yank. Typical BBC.

I'm sure he stated he would never join Top gear because of all the bullshit that goes with it. I'm still confused as to what the fuck the BBC thought last series with the copious amounts of presenters

Matt Leblanc is made of plastic, the guy is cringey as fuck. Also Rory Reid does very annoying hand gestures And Harris is just stuck in the middle I guess

Facebook was full of people saying it was great so I watched it - I found it still a bit wooden.

I think the BBC have played it fantastically, employ a knobhead and put out a shit series then sack him so people will give it another chance. That way rather than expecting the standards that the 3 stooges were putting out, people are now happy with it being something not great but with potential which is far preferable to having Chris Evans shouting the script that they already had written for Clarkson.

Thought it was good. Need to get Jensen Button involved somehow, now he is at a loose end!

cant stand Rory Reid, comes across as trying too hard to be liked, dont have an issue with Le Blanc, Chris Harris was always a good choice for me, the guy can drive and i always watched his youtube videos before TG

Definitely an improvement but I watched The Grand Tour within a couple of days of it and it just blows it away to be honest. I know Clarkson is knobend but you can't beat him for character. I'll still watch it because you know, I love all things cars.

rory reid is shite

and Chris Harris just tries too hard - coming across all aggressive and shouting - I know its the format but they basically fall into Chris Harris being Clarkson and opinionated about everything, Matt Le Blanc and Rory tying to fill the othjer 2

even the way they talk about things on the raodtrips and which guys lead the pack etc

Was an improvement but Chris Harris need to be less aggressive - I know its for show but looks forced

I agree. I actually follow Harris on Twitter as find him 'interesting' but he does just come over a dickhead tbh.

Sundays was an excellent episode. I have watched the Giulia QV three times already.

I love it so much!! (The Giulia I mean....)

In regard to the show... I like the fact that every aspect has had an overhaul but it still feels like top gear. For example the opening theme tune doesn't have the silly jokes over the top of it. The stig is there, but isn't a big character. The star in a reasonable priced car is actually interesting (I used to fast forward through it) - Having a half decent RWD car and the Chris Harris mentoring beforehand. Bringing back the top gear track is a masterstroke after that rallycross effort.

I'm impressed, after not watching much of the Chris Evans series and the Grand Tour, it's decent!

I love the Giulia, however I worry that it would turn the way of my Mito, brilliant car but had niggles and showed it age really quickly.

The Giulia is the same car if it's base spec or not, different interior fixings aren't going to change are they
