    It’s very plastic and Chris Harris is not a great tv personality as much as I love his YouTube content which is actually about cars. Those car specific parts are fine but the rest is just kak.

    Rory is actually the best of the lot and made for tv.

    Yes and no.

    It gets better and more organic, but there is stupid **** like that conversation street and the way they announce it for no good reason that is utter rubbish.

    At least in S2 they dropped the celebrity kak.

    At first I didnt enjoy LeBlanc, but he has actually really grown on me.
    The dynamic between him and Harris gets better and better and you can see they are having a blast, which makes for entertaining TV.
    For me Rory is just the cherry on the cake.

    To me their relationship seems utterly constructed and not natural at all.

    The final episode being the the only one I found believable.

    Maybe it's because I'm getting older but I grow weary of their asinine antics. There's really no motivation to watch it unless there is positively nothing else to watch, and that's unlikely to happen.

    I'll definitely watch Top Gear, I'm beginning to like their dynamic as abev mentioned, even if it's a little cringe from time to time.

    I reckon Grand Tour is terrible in studio but on the road it’s pretty good.

    Top Gear is a back and forth between hit and miss.

    Either way both are worse off than they were before but at the same time we now have two shows to watch and argue about so it’s a win win.

    Went to a live screening of Top Gear today and i must say, as much as Matt & Chris' relationship seems odd, they actually have a great one off camera. They were always messing around with some banter. Rory actually seems like the odd one out.

    It does get tedious being in the audience after 3 hours though. Trying to laugh at the same joke for the 4th time isn't all that easy...

    It does get better much better, Season 1 they were finding their feet. Season 2 much more structured, and the people complaining about the low budget sections like conversation street forgets all those sections are purely there to take the piss out of their old show. Since they weren't legally allowed to do the same style of show on TGT.

    Personally I watch the supercar parts, and that's it.
