Good to have the boys back. Watched a half hour and was thoroughly entertained, will watch the rest later.

Was okay to watch but didn't take down the scooter special through Asia as one of my favorites.

Was very enjoyable IMO. These guys are just classic together even though it's the same bitching and fucking with eachother.

Suprised May made it the final checkpoint as well. Yikes on open water.

I had just started watching the newer UK Top Gear earlier in the week. It was season 24 or 25 I think with Matt Leblanc, Chris Harris, and Rory Reid. I like Harris on his own, but man everything is so much more forced. Going from that into this special is a HUGE reminder of how great the original 3 are together. Sure some of it is scripted and edited a certain way, but it rarely feels like it.

I was pretty shocked that May made it at the end, and I am almost positive that Hammond did cry along with pissing himself. That whole section was fucking crazy!

There are some episodes of season 26 (before LeBlanc left) that are decent, like the one where LeBlanc and Harris have to share a car (Bentley Continental GT) to do a review of it. I think it was episode 200, where they start on top of a mountain in the snow. The horseplay and banter between them was funny. Just wait until Harris ends up in the back seat.

It isn't terrible, not like Chirs Evans... Just not as good. I could see that group getting pretty good given some time. Rory was the weak link for sure, Chris and Matt seem to get along pretty good and it comes across. Its all for nothing now that Matt and Rory are gone now though. I'll still watch em all anyway :)

I really didnt mind the Matt/Chris/Rory trio. But these new northern knobs they've installed, ugh its tough. When you're speaking english, but they still need to put up subtitles so people know what you're saying, you probably shouldn't be hosting a television show where it's your job to talk.

FYI no idea if it’s a glitch or error but I’m watching the new episode now it’s live.

Check it out photo for proof in case this is a glitch
