surprised nobody made a topic yet.
but the boys are back in town. first 2 episodes are up on Amazon.
there's no more Stig and it seems like the BBC got to keep "Star in a Reasonably Priced Car" as part of the divorce settlement, but everything else is there. I'm really enjoying it so far. personally I miss the Stig but I definitely do not miss Stars in Cheap Ass Cars... I always left the room or skipped through those segments. like I don't give a f/ck what Tom Cruise thinks about anything and I really don't care how fast he can drive a Honda.
that being said I have really enjoyed the new shows.
the basic formula is intact and the guys chemistry with each other is as fun as ever. I hope they keep traveling around the world with the tent instead of (as speculated) moving into the new test track as a permanent studio. it's a cool idea having different types of audiences against different backdrops. they looked like they were having a great time, the cinematography and editing is still brilliant, and the cars were awesome, the driving was intense. props on Amazon for letting them make off-color jokes and getting away with saying naughty words like "sh!t."
at one point they had the American crowd making fun of the RAF. and then there were all the little jabs they took at Audi and Volkswagen. also had a good laugh at the celebrities who kept "dying" before their appearance. so silly. so British. the boys are back!
