New Top Gear

If you didn’t catch the first episode of Top Gear in its new format with new presenters Chris Evans and Matt Le Blanc I wouldn’t rush. For those of you who quite like a few spoilers and want to hear how the first episode went at a glance, here it is: badly. Evans was trying way too hard and he never really cemented his actual opinion on any of the cars, and he was driving a Dodge! It almost felt like he was reading out press releases from the manufacturer. Matt Le Blanc wasn’t too bad but we’re talking about Joey from friends here. I think it’s safe to say that Clarkson, May and Hammond were watching this together in hysterics and they certainly won’t be worried when their new show launches later on this year.
