New Top Gear
 
I finally caught up with the new Top Gear this evening - with Freddie and Paddy - same format(ish) but different presenters...

I think it will improve and Top Gear will continue for ever.

Most I've enjoyed it in years, I liked the cars they chose, wasn't too rehearsed and didn't do anything really dopey or outlandish!
Good mix of personalities and banter.

I winced when I heard the new line up announcement all those months ago. I just thought it was another disaster waiting to happen.

BUT Iím glad to have been proven wrong and it worked really well imho. Iím so glad Matt has gone, nothing against the guy but he just couldnít present to save his life.

Iím actually looking forward to next weekís show and I havenít said that about Top Gear in a loooooong time.

I really liked it , some laugh out loud moments. Didnít feel scripted (though probably is) , but the chemistry seems genuine?

I think it is. At first when they were taking the pee out if Chrisí height I thought it was forced but as time went on (and especially in Ethiopia) it did appear the friendship and banter was genuine. I hope it continues in that vein.

Agreed. He's some driver (and bike rider) though. :)

I've not watched it yet but in my opinion, after the positive comments, all they need to do now is replace Chris, his style of presenting makes my teeth ache and I don't have many of my own ones left!

He’s a big Porsche fan too. One of the most promising reports he did was on a Porsche. He actually came across really well as he was passionate about it. Unfortunately, on a car show you need to be like that on every report!

I like Chris, always thought he was the best out of the older line up. Plus, he can drive properly and they need at least one who can :D

Why?

Not one of Clarkson, Hammond or May could drive for toffee. Yes they could slide about and make lots of smoke, but it ended there.

True, but regardless I think it's better if at least one of them can do the business.
