Trivia

When presenting Top Gear, James May always uttered the phrase, "Oh, cock!" whenever something went wrong. Since leaving Top Gear James May has refrained from using this phrase on The Grand Tour as Top Gear have claimed they own the catchphrase due to copyright. Much to the annoyance of James May as this is a regular phrase he would use on an everyday basis. See more »

(If you really are open to other views…) The chemistry has been forced to death.
25 November 2016 | by See all my reviews

If you really are open to other views: I watched Top Gear since the 2002 reboot, and the two most fun elements were the specials and the chemistry between the believable characters.

But when they realized this, they gradually tried to force it, resulting in it becoming more and more over the top. And in the end it just stopped being believable. Which means it stopped being fun.

In The Grand Tour, they desperately tried to re-ignite that chemistry. (Jeremy says so himself.) But by now it has completely stopped being natural and believable, and is more like someone badly copying a caricature of a nostalgic memory. And all that's left is them looking like they're trying too hard. That's just not fun anymore. And that makes me disappointed and sad.

The other problem that I have is that, given their apparently much bigger budget, having each episode be a special and then some would have been possible. But they just went on doing basically the old format. Which is rather wasteful, financially.

Well, at least their mini-specials each episodes give a bit of joy. I still have hope. I'm just rather disappointed.
