The Grand Tour - It's showtime for Season 2!

Recommended Posts

Here is a 34 min interview of Andy Wilman, who discusses in a fair bit of detail the end of old TG, the transition period, the new TGT, the future? It's long but it's entertaining, you can tell just why him and JC are friends from the sense of humour haha

That was a great watch. It's kinda' like listening to Jezza's more sensible brother.

So, uh, who's actually going to sign up for Amason Prime, and uh who's going to do some Googling the following day? Do they have any other good shows?

 

 

I'm sure they have some sort of free trial planned for this in any case.

I may do the full Amazon Prime membership that includes Prime video... but I wouldn't buy it on it's own. I had it before and the GUI was a massive turn off for me, and for me personally Netflix has a better selection. Even better back when VPNs would work! (damn you Netflix!)

There's a good chance they will eventually (it's not forbidden in contracts iirc) but with what kind of delay... a month, more?

 

More I'd imagine. Once the season finishes on Amazon Prime I think. So here's the question... will it be as big as TG? Bigger?

I read something a few months ago that is quite concerning for a family show if true; there was a hint that there may be more fowl language that potentially goes uncensored because no BBC. Maybe they'll edit and offer 2 versions of the episode?

This would be quite confusing really, Amazon have paid a hell of a lot for the show so for them to then alienate some of TG's core demographic unnecessarily would be highly bizarre. Although it would be a positive change for me personally.

I hope the awful laughter tracks are not part of the show.

 

They're not, it's the laughter from the audience back in James Corden's studio.

 

Is it geoblocked for you Ry? I always watch Corden's videos without any VPN or issue at all.

 

Nice video, they all seemed quite relaxed unscripted.

Yup. What a refreshing change, just natural banter.

      Top Gear filming hour-long special in Vietnam

      It looks like the Top Gear guys are in Vietnam working on an hour-long special. While we don't have any specifics, we do have some pics that popped up on Ausmotive. The Top Gear website isn't much help, cryptically telling us that the lads don't plan on shooting anyone, but they don't rule it out knowing that Jezza is there. Expect a challenge of some sort, probably involving something considerably slower than the American iron they sampled while Stateside, and of course lots of laughs as always. Thanks for all the tips!
       
      Gallery: Top Gear in Vietnam

      The boys are in ‘NamPosted by The Mole at 6:10 pm on Monday October 6, 2008 As the brand new Top Gear website glides elegantly onto the net-o-web we’re saddened to report that the presenters won’t be around to see it. That’s because, after years of dodging the draft, they’ve been sent to Vietnam.
       
      Fortunately, the war there ended 33 years ago so their mission is purely to make a jocular hour-long Top Gear special, rather than start shooting anyone in the face. Mind you, Jeremy’s there so you never know what might happen.
      The precise details of their detail to South East Asia have to remain a secret for now but suffice to say they’re going to buy transport and undertake a road trip. Unfortunately their budget of several million Vietnamese Dong might sound massive but is in fact the square root of the sum of sod all in one of the most pricey car markets in the world.
      News reaches Top Gear central command in London that they have now realised this and resorted to some rather more frugal - and buttock punishing - transport.
      The boys will be back next week and presumably expecting some sort of traditional ‘Nam vets ticker tape parade to welcome them home. Except that this is supposed to be a paperless office. So we’ll just have to throw some laptops at them.

      Posted by The Mole at 6:21 pm on Friday October 10, 2008 Amidst all the excitement of sending the presenters off to Vietnam we seem to have forgotten to mention when the new series of Top Gear is actually back on the telly.
      TV scheduling is of course a murky business, and one that’s largely out of the production team’s hands.
      The BBC actually has dedicated scheduling people and they use a variety of techniques to decide when shows should be on air, often revolving around sacrificing a chicken and reading the entrails, throwing a variety of different sized fruits at a wall and seeing which ones stick or feeding a pile of DVDs to a cow and seeing which one gets pooed out first.
      Although in fairness, all those things only happened when we let The Stig go on attachment to the scheduling department.
      Anyway, the upshot is that Top Gear was going to be back on 26 October but then there turned out to be some sport on or something and as a result the new series will now start on Sunday 2 November.
      So don’t move a muscle until then.
      Actually you probably should move at least some muscles. Otherwise you’ll get really hungry and start to smell.
