    Anyone have opinions on the new Presenters of Top Gear, and the show without Jeremy, Richard and James?
    Watched some of the first 3 episodes, and seems to be rubbish!
    The ratings seem to be taking a steady dump as well.
    What do you folks think of Top Gear since the revamp?

    Every review I have seen agrees with you. Time to end it because with the new hosts its not worth watching.

    Still better than American Top Gear. I'm willing to give it a shot.

    The American version is the one that needed its hosts replaced.

    You know, if you sit back and completely block out Jeremy, Richard, and James, it's not a bad show.

    What they need to do is get rid of the doofus Chris Evans. He's an ass and needs to quit yelling. You have a microphone, speak like a human.

    They need to stop trying to be like Clarkson, May, and Hammond and find their own way.

    I actually really like LeBlanc. I think he's pretty funny. That Chris though, yikes. Clarkson was outspoken, but it was in more relaxed way

    Clarkson was funny in a dry British wit way. Hammond was the one I found annoying.

    The trio struck a perfect balance. The new guys are trying to hard to mesh with one another.

    I really like Hammond, especially later in the series

    I think they need time to mesh, but you're right, as of right now it is forced.

    The Top Gear we are used to was 3 guys who had worked with each other for over a decade. The chemistry was there and tested. These guys have had 3 weeks.

    Agreed. I liked May who was by far the most laid back but also seemed the most normal.

    I liked Clarkson because he appeared normal but was totally bat squat crazy.

    Watch some of the very early episodes and you will see how awkward their interactions were and how the show was still struggling to find its purpose. It was mostly about the cars until it evolved to be about the hosts.

    It was always about cars. Just in later years it became as if regular guys got a chance to drive super cars.

    I didn't like the shift to mostly all supercars normal people would never drive. They were at their best doing things like the road trip to India or driving London taxis. Weird stuff that played to their strengths.

    I also like when they would review normal cars.

    True but they rarely did that. And when they did they sneered at everything American made. And they would compare an American car to some exotic costing 2 or 3 times as much.

    I actually found that kind of funny.

    Like look at it from our POV. As a country we're very xenophobic. They're the same way. Just with Euro cars

    Hammond would like some American cars but Clarkson hates everything that isn't British..
