This has trainwreck written all over it.

I think I'd rather watch the Australian Top Gear than this.

If they write Matt LeBlanc's lines he will do really well, if he has to improv he will crash and burn.

His work in UK series Episodes is really good, albeit playing himself. A mate recommended it and I expected a trainwreck, but it was brilliant.

Everyone else on the other hand... *image of Hilux atop a collapsing building *

I still think LeBlanc has the potential to be really good. He could be the sole saving grace. However the show surrounding him will be so bad it won't matter.

I think it is good that they arent going to try and copy "top gear".

It is going to be a mess for the first season though, until they find their new "thing"

Interesting with Sabine Schmitz - when she first appeared on Top Gear about 12 years ago, she created quite a stir because she was a)Fast b)funny and c) A Woman!

She's had a good career in TV in Germany since, but I suspect from the above photo she's no longer in exactly racing trim.

Clarkson,Hammond & May have named their show The Grand Tour

http://www.tvtonight.com.au/2016/05/clarkson-hammond-may-name-new-show-the-grand-tour.html
The Amazon Prime show will feature short films shot in different locations around the globe and the studio audience portion of the showcase will also take place at a different location around the world every week. The pre-recorded studio sections of the program will be filmed in front of a live audience, all housed within a giant tent. Therefore in this spirit of travel, adventure and intrigue, the presenters have decided to call the show 'The Grand Tour.'
Actually sounds pretty cool.

The new season with the new cast has aired.

It has much of the same look and feel of the old show but still not quite as good. Chris Evans was clearly trying way too hard to be the new Clarkson. Matt LeBlanc was actually pretty good.
