Infact, those first five minutes bettered the entire last Top Gear effort.

I like it! "The American's" commentary leaves a lot to be desired, but I love that all 3 of the celebrities they tried to have on the show spontaneously "died".

Spoiler alert. ;-)

I watched the first ten minutes this morning, and it really got me thinking "this is going to be great". They seemed to be shouting a lot in the studio so I hope that's not a repeat of Chris Evans. Looking forward to seeing the rest later.

Default Brilliant!

Just watched this, it's absolutely brilliant.

Mclaren v 918 should keep Mikey and MB entertained

... and the best M car ever made for the Beemer drivers here

Very good. Even if the Hypercar comparison has been done to death

Really enjoyed this and a great first episode.

A bit like Top Gear V2 with a lot of the guff removed.

It is only episode 1 though so let's see how things go.

I enjoyed it. It's good to have them back, and although parts of it felt contrived it was, on the whole, very good.

It made me realised how stale Top Gear had become, and what a terrible hash Chris Evans made of trying to revive it.

I enjoyed it. Not sure it was better than TG when they did it. More car content though. And enjoyed how slow the M2 was haha.. over hyped.

those 3 Hypercars are something.
