The new hosts and revamped studio of the latest seasons of Top Gear were always going to attract a lot of comment, especially from die-hard Clarkson fans and those who were only too happy to see the back of him.
Now that he’s on The Grand Tour on Prime Video along with previous Top Gear co-hosts James May and Richard Hammond, the driver’s seat of Top Gear was ready to be filled by an altogether different presence. Enter Friends’ Matt Le Blanc, along with Chris Harris and Rory Reid.
The Irish Times wrote, “On the basis of this first episode, and with the caveat that all such things need time to bed in and gel together, the smaller, lighter Top Gear may just have snuck ahead of the bloated Grand Tour.”
The team go supercar hunting in Germany, embark on an all-seasons US road trip in a convertible, drive an eight-wheel rescue vehicle across Europe from Ukraine, and generally get up to the craziest capers you can imagine in vehicles of all shapes, sizes and speeds.
Along with these seasons on Showmax, the Nepal Special is also streaming on DStv Now.
