Totally unrealistic, he’d never leave his garage in that condition

Much better and obvious they are learning from mistakes and feedback. Even to the point of admitting it. Hopeful for the rest of the series

Strangely enough it felt like more old school top gear with all the new nonsense removed. Only the stig is missing!

Really enjoyed it, they seem to have just decided to directly copy top gear. Banter seemed natural, nice car bits.

Thought it was a bit meh to be honest. Bizarrely I think I was enjoying the last Top Gear compared to this.

I'm also finding that I'm preferring even Doug DeMuro's channel on youtube for his actual car reviews.

It was all a bit meh. Why the **** did they include a celebrity driving segment?

They didn’t have one last year but made a stupid joke every week about it which people complained about. So they ditch the stupid joke and bring back the driving segment!

So they created a segment I will forward through again. Good job.

The scripted **** is just as bad it would seem.

Enjoyed it, but it was so much like old Top Gear that for a lot of it I thought I was watching a repeat. The supercar sections in particular were very familiar (making noise through tunnel, low ground clearance getting caught, too wide to go down a small village street).

The new track looked a bit tight & the gravel section felt remarkably similar to the off-road bit on the rebooted Top Gear...

I enjoyed it but it felt too "safe". As others have said, it has just returned to the old Top Gear format & therefore offered nothing fresh...
