    Broke down and watched the first few episodes of the Top Gear UK new season. Chris Harris takes a beating from Paddy and Flintoff to the point it gets old. Content was decent 1 special with more upcoming. One big thing that sucked was not seeing the Stig actually run the timed laps. For whatever reason they just cut to posting the times. Looking forward to seeing Sabine on an upcoming episode, she cracks me up. Did not think Leblanc was horrible. Getting rid of Chris Evans was the biggest improvement made since the trio left.

    I believe I heard that they have finished filming the first episode of season 4. So that’s good.

    I'm on the fence about the change. On the one hand, I really enjoy their epic 'challenge' specials. On the other hand, a big part of the appeal of CH&M is the three of them bantering about car news with the audience, and their unusual/creative new car reviews.
    Maybe they'll still do some of that on Drivetribe, and not just do commercials like Hammond has been for the Ranger

    ^I concur. It also kinda sucks that there's only 2 new episodes to look forward to.

    I just got it within the year. I’m sure when my renewal comes up, it’ll increase. Then I will hopefully have justification to drop it

    The new top gear with the new hosts is actually quite funny.

    I haven't watch Grand Tour in a while. It just doesn't do it for me.

    As for Top Gear.. I'll have to see what new hosts you are talking about.

    Edit: Chris Harris will be joined by late night entertainment host Paddy McGuinness and pro cricket player Andrew "Freddie" Flintoff for 2019.

    Never heard of Paddy or Andrew "Freddie"
