Exactly my feeling about it Durbs. It’s pretty damn cringey. I really like the guys when they are being themselves. Watched Richard and James make LEGO for over an hour and found it more entertaining than the grand tour. That’s mainly because they weren’t trying to act to some poorly written gag script.
I got the impression from the show title that it was going to be more of a travel car show. All like the overseas specials they used to do on Top Gear, rather than a tent that they do Top Gear from. It seems like a bit of a wasted opportunity at times being in those countries and not doing a ‘Grand Tour’. You’re right. It’s not terrible. There are good bits in there. I was just hoping for a new concept.

That's sort of what happened last year. I only signed up for Amazon on the night TGT started after curiosity got the better of me so maybe it'll happen again, but I did conclude it probably wasn't worth it after the series ended.
I found it hard to get into but once i had some time available pushed through the cringe and enjoyed myself. I think it was around episode 4 when it started to feel more natural rather than scripted. I hope this season drops the celebrity that dies each time. That was old from ep 2
Amazing how one poor promo can ruin your enthusiasm for a show. I thought there might be a chance for this season, but if the same people who made this deadful tat are anywhere near the production, there is no hope.
