Does anyone know when the Clarkson TG 2 starts on Amazon Prime or has it already? If it has, what does everyone think?

Don't think I could hack Chris Evans for much longer.

And what was the point of Gordon Ramsey ? Look at me - I've got so much money I can buy a very expensive car.

Bully for him.

Shame that some folks feel that way. Why is it that if you do well in the UK, folks instantly think you're a c**t..!!??

Starts sometime in the autumn I think mate.

I was suprised on Sunday, I didn't think I was going to enjoy it but I actually did. I didn't think it was all that bad and no doubt it'll get better as they get used to each other.

I watched it, and the extra thing on iplayer.

I cant understand why they hire Chris Harris because of his youtube videos, and then don't let him carry on delivering that type of content? Unbelievably they then don't even let him lead the 'extra' program, they give it to someone who would be more suited to CBBC...

The content was very unoriginal, the top gun idea was stolen from another piece that was written while ago where a SRT10, 'vette and 'stang were taken to top gun, very very poor.

The reliant story seemed desperate, just trying to take off from where the last guys left off, where it needs to be original programming.

I think there is potential. I'd like to see Chris Harris leading, with Matt remaining as the second presenter. Then Evans could stick to Radio 2, where I enjoy listening to him...

I was a bit underwhelmed and it's a shame Chris Harris doesn't have a more pivotal role.

I hope it improves over time as the presenters get more used to it.

At least there is the Grand Tour coming later in the year

Yes but you have to cater for everyone's tastes on a TV program. Not all car nuts wax lyrical about the R35 all day long....

That might amaze you but true nonetheless...

yawn

involuntarily open one's mouth wide, and inhale deeply due to tiredness or boredom.

P.s - Noone here would class SUV's as ''top Gear''

I actually thought last nights show was better than the 1st one by miles but still can't stand Evans screaming about nothing all of the time

Did not hear any complaints when Hammond took the AMG G55, or the Bowler Wildcat, or the 6 wheel'd AMG thing in Dubai........

I agree.

The whole McLaren section was beautifully shot.

Jenson though bless him, he can't drift can he!

That was probably before "His Worship" was on the forum. He is just a youngster after all....



Mind you, his Stage 10 GTR will beat a stock Fiat Panda so all is well with the world

They showed a clip of evans in the F1 on the extra bit. He reviewed it without shouting, he did get a bit flowery and emotional, but I think it show there is promise.

if he did more stuff like that id continue watching.
