See it didn't make me miss the old Top Gear mate as I thought it had run it's course and even though I tuned in I didn't really enjoy them as I should have.
The biggest disappointment for me, so far, is that the new guys haven't made any difference to the format which is what I was after.
I'll give it a few more weeks as it could just be the first episode but I want to see a 'new' Top Gear not just some old Top Gear with new presenters.
I think the problem with the previous incarnation having run its course (Christmas specials aside) was that it had basically done everything imaginable and by time it became absolutely massive during the last few years and was shown all over the world it had settled into a predictable format and script.
That they are still working on that same format but without the previous three presenters really exposes that the format wasn't really that important.
Ultimately the previous Top Gear was so inventive that I think even if they revamped the show there would still be remnants of the previous version that ran for 13 years. It would help if they scaled it down again to what the show was like in the first few years under Clarkson, Hammond and May when it seemed a little more off beat and improvisational but with the reputation the programme now carries and all the contracts it's signed with various broadcasters around the world, they'll be expecting more of the big flashy production that it had become.
Would have been best if they just laid the show to rest or at least put it away for a good few years.
