I didn’t see it but I have heard it is really good. Plan to watch it on catch-up at the weekend.

Great advert for Ethiopia but I thought it was shite, all that forced banter again. Paddy McGuinness really gets on my tits. Maybe it's an age thing, seems I'm in a minority. Chris Harris playing the gimp again was well cringy.

I agree with this. The “banter” between the three all seemed to gear towards the #ladsladslads community in twitter.

The whole bit of flintoff trying to get his cock and balls on to Harris was fucking embarrassing.

As a program I wish they would steer away from the specials. Especially as that is the way the Grand Tour is going. Get some proper car reviews going for most of the episodes and have a one off caper show.

Thought it was pretty good on the whole. Very early days but looks like it could be something that the presenters grow into.

They seemed really eager and keen to impress, maybe that'll die down as it goes on.

They did a good job on bigging up Ethiopia, looked amazing and even the Ethiopian Embassy were thankful to them on Twitter for their comments.

Watched the first and second episodes of the series tonight and I really enjoyed them. Much less awful than I thought it would be, they do have a bit much on the “banter” side but at least it doesn’t ruin the show, which I though Clarkson, May and Hammond had strayed into. The show is still much more focused on the cars which is a good thing.

Watched the first episode on a flight on Friday and was pleasantly surprised.  Enjoyed it more than I did any of the Evans and Le Blanc series.

I must have watched every episode since the Chris Goffey days but have not yet bothered with this series. Might give it a go now after seeing you folks say reasonably positive stuff about it.

I wasn't sure about it if I am honest but fair play, I enjoyed it on Sunday :)

Watched this tonight was decent

That bungee at the end was fucking madness


I didn’t think I’d enjoy Flintoff and McGuiness hosting but really enjoyed last series and enjoyed tonight’s.

Even from the comfort of my couch those camera shots looking over the side of the dam gave me the 🤢

Paddy McGuinness must be absolutely exhausting to live with. Agree with Flintoff - unlike most sports people turned presenters, he can actually read an autocue.

Been really surprised by the new presenters. Much easier chemistry between these three and it showcases Chris Harris better. The two likeable dafties with a heart and the one that knows his stuff and can really drive.

Really good tribute to Colin McRae on this weeks episode. He really was fearless.
Him and Richard Burns single handedly elevated my beloved Imprezzas to cult status.
