Topgear

New host announced as Chris Evans.

My money is on Jody Kidd as the next to be announced.

Evans isn't a bad choice, but do you think it can garner even close to same attention as the previous lineup? Maybe something better than 5th gear?

After seeing James May without the high production value of the BBC, he should do well. Unless Clarkson, Hammond and May can get the same quality out of the -rumored- Netflix deal.

Tough act to compete against is the reality. I will guarantee Clarkson's new show will air first. All part of the master plan...

Agreed. As rude as Jeremy is in real life I love his on air persona and will continue to follow him.

Remember how we hated the US Top Gear when that came out in its first series? I got that same feeling but worse about this incarnation.

I'd have to agree wholeheartedly, but then, I wasn't really expecting much to be honest..

That was hard to watch. It's almost as if they tried to cram too much into one show. And why did they Bring Jessie onto the show with Gordon? Gordon certainly had some bragging rights.

They need a 3rd person to be the middle ground personality. Matt is bland, and Chris is way amped up.

My observations.

From what I read there was supposed to be someone else bigger to be the first guest, but they backed out. At least thats what i read on Jalopnik.


I think it has a chance of being good. One episode isnt fair to judge. But it really wasnt that good. With all the money and time sunk into it, I expected better.

For the Jeep/Series challenge I expected it to be more entertaining. They really could have had fun with it.

The original format never came across as scripted, this unfortunately seemed very scripted with quite a bit of poor acting. Perhaps they should have had a segment with a shark jump?

Wasn't too impressed. I think if you took the two guys from the after show and added Matt it could be good. Seemed like they are trying too hard to be different from the old Top Gear. I did like the star in a rally cross car. I wouldn't be surprised if Matt is only on for this season.
