Watched the first 2 episodes. Love it, so much better than the new Top Gear or any of the US derivatives. You can tell that they are still finding their feet a little bit with the new format so I'm sure what is already an excellent show will continue to improve.
Hey, can we get a translation over here? What are wasters? What are prats? These terms are completely foreign to my American ears. I come from a part of the U.S. where we never hear British English. To give you an example of how far into the interior of America I live, one my first summer jobs was working for a cheap roofing company in Hamilton, OH where my boss would yell at me for "sitting on my keister." I guess we have our own regional expressions, too. The Internet widened my horizons. I now know that blokes are what we call dudes.
Thanks, Noobytoogy. You have given me a whole new vocabulary of curse words/insults. I am going to be needing them in the next few weeks, between doing my hardwood flooring installation project and setting up my Christmas lights. Your list looks like it will be much better at expressing my frustration than the same old four-letter words.
I for one dislike Grand Tour and have not watched it since the first episode. From what I read, the following episodes are similar so I stay away. Too much glitz and nonsense and too little substance. LAUGH TRACK for the tent/studio shenanigans? Give me a break. Too juvie* for me.
So far, I have really enjoyed The Grand Tour as much as Top Gear in its glory days. What especially slays me are the almost constant Top Gear references and little jabs at the BBC show. James yelling "Oh Cack!" was one of those things that just makes you wonder who from the BBC is fuming as they walk along the line of their agreement that maintained ownership of intellectual property to the BBC(which is quite extensive and I don't fully understand).
I like the screenplay (best filming in the business) the dynamic between the cast and the fact that they can get their hands on any car they desire...I could do without the stereotypical good ole boy version of the stig, also could do without the extended cocking around that sometimes goes a bit too far. The celebrity guests death before coming on set is a hilarious way to get around some obvious BBC copyright issues.
Seriously? A laugh track in 2016? Maybe I won't watch it; I would just be disappointed. I always think of British comedy as having such a dry sense of humor. For example, there are some things from Monty Python that still make me laugh every time I think about them, like the "pining for the fjords" thing and so many parts from "The Life of Brian."
I purchased my 2011 V6 Sport in February. I love it. It is as simple as that. And surely I will not have to elaborate on this to anyone else driving this beautiful car.
Nonetheless, there wouldn't be new models every so many years if there wasn't room for improvement. This thread is...
