Anyone else watch this?

I assumed it would be pretty similar to TG but I thought they may change up some of the formatting or take a few chances with some content. Instead this is an exact carbon copy of TG except for the set and track.

That being said still pretty entertaining. I do wish they would do less scripted bits and have more of them just hanging out being natural jackasses with the cars.

I have a sense that they will mix it up episode by episode based in their statements re next week's. Seems like they ditched the celebrity bits based on them killing the guests which I thought was  pretty funny. That was usually my least favorite part of the show.

They killed Charlize Theron in the second episode.

Tuned in, immediately get to watch cringey Ubisoft talking head offering her deepest sympathies to the families impacted by the Orlando shooting while flanked by a man in a giraffe suit and some sort of "horrifically garish neon costumes through the ages" exhibit or something.  We need to stop this fucking planet right now and sort some shit out. -Kail

At least they didn't turn her into a USB stick.

enjoyed first episode, 2nd, well I never liked that type of episode in Top Gear (though the homemade ambulances one was good) so no surprise that them playing the role of Elite Soldiers was a snooze fest for me.  As mentioned above, less scripted, more tomfoolery

The second season has started and OMG was the first show a snooze fest.  They brought back celebrity racing on a track that is suspiciously like the new Top Gear track.

The primary story was slow and boring as well.  Quite a feat considering we all knew what happened at the end.  Plus all three of the guys looked very old and tired.  It may be the time to wrap the whole thing up.

How was the first season anyway ? Never got around to watch it.

It was decent with some excellent shows and some so-so shows.  Worth a watch.

They need to stop pretending that this is a serious car show and embrace the stupid.  TG/TGT is at it's best when it's CMH doing dumb shit in shitty cars.  Oddly, TG USA hit on this earlier, despite the hosts being less entertaining.
