I watched it earlier.

Honestly, some of it was funny, a lot of it I was just looking at my phone.

I'm sure I'll download and watch them when I feel the urge, but I can take or leave it.

What I liked was that the seemed to be a bit more respectful of classics and not going out and buying them to destroy like the original lot did on a regular basis. hopefully they'll not prove me wrong.
Mixed reviews online, but I think genuine car folks will like it.

yeah exactly !!! hes not got a clue ,,his presenting is so forced and un-natural its quite embarrassing and freddie looked really uncomfortable too when he was in the studio and talking to camera
but .....
i will give it a go ..as not watched it since the first "chris evens" episode which completely ruined it for me and refused to watch ever since

but who knows it might work as paddy and freddie are quite funny fukers lol

I quite liked Le Blanc, although he did seem to struggle with the bits in the studio.

I like Chris Harris as well, he did some great bits on Pistonheads years ago. I follow him on Instagram, and he seems to have genuine chemistry with Paddy and Freddy

I saw it yesterday and I have to say it is the best attempt at Top Gear since Clarkson, Hammond and May did one. It is also better than the Grand Tour, but then so is a broken spine.

I watched it, I liked it, then Chris had his bit that seems to go on forever so my finger was firmly planted on the FFFFFFWD button for that 55 minute (maybe that's just what it seems like to me) segment.

I watched it and liked it.

I never watched any of the last few series after the originals left, apart from the two episodes that convinced me to stop watching.

Ill be watching the rest of the series, i like the more light hearted and friendly banter of these three.

Me too.

They genuinely look like they're enjoying it/having a laugh.

Electric cars though... the future.
