But yeah it was pretty terrible. Very repetitive. I don't get why they're going for more of the cinematic shots as opposed to more of a reality feel. Epic races and cheap car challenges etc was for me the best parts but they haven't done either yet.

Next week I bet the "celebrity" will be killed by falling off a swing bridge. ;)

I'd agree with you on the streaming quality JT, it's awesome and doesn't miss a beat.

I'm on a prime free trial at the moment, though I still won't sign up for it.  Regarding the stream quality, with the 4Mbps I get at home, prime streaming was very poor quality and choppy. However, I can stream Netflix absolutely fine, even in HD as long as someone else in the house isn't doing any other sort heavy downloading.

 

I too thought episode 2 was a bit lame. It didn't go down as well on IMDB etc either, so maybe they will take it on board and make the necessary changes for season 2.

What was that shit. Minus the Vulcan, until driven by the fat yank, the whole thing was shockingly bad, like on evans standard.
Top Gear has pretty much always been scripted, and they got slated for it with the hover-van segment, which i remember them addressing in the following series, so why are back with equivalent stuff.
They need to do some Gran Tour specials, and visit some places, set challenges and such.
A random star being killed is as entertaining as star in a reasonably priced car.


I hope episode 3 holds more.... 

Also spinning.... how cringey, and also they mentioned Australia when saying places where you wouldn't get away with it, i was under the impression rotory and v8's doing burnouts and donuts was their thing?

What a(nother) pile of drivel. So much pointless crap in it I only just managed to make it through. Might not bother with the next one.

They can lose the drone crashes and celebrity 'deaths' next. That'd be swell. Otherwise it was a decent improvement, probably because the American didn't drive anything.

I thought episode 3 was much better, bit more cohesive. Still seems like there are a few format and content bumps they need to work out; definitely doesn't seem as polished as TG was. Hopefully that'll come with a bit of time.

People pay for subscriptions!?

Conversation Street is still in but they had actual celebrities doing actual interviews, as well as laps around a circuit. As far as I was concerned it was very much more like their final series of Top Gear and there’s not much wrong with that.

I watched it. It was good. Top gear is also good now. 

Double win.

I thought that it was a step in the right direction and i'm glad that they listened to the criticism. But I found the episode boring.

Massive improvement over season 1. Looking forward to the rest of the season, just wish Amazon would allow it to be cast to chromecast so I can watch it in 4k.

Spend £30 on a firestick : https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01ETRIFOW

Scrap that you need the £55 one for 4k - https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B06XTWLSRF

I've got 4 chromecasts in my house and one is an ultra. I'll wait till amazon see sense, I'm not playing their game.
