The Grand Tour

Starts tonight, I understand. My children and I are very excited (although I need to get the internet connection to our family television fixed so we can actually watch it ...).

It seems to me that Danny Cohen unwittingly did the boys (including Andy Willman) a great favour - they can now produce a truly global programme to match the viewing audience they had built up during their tenure at Top Gear. Whether that is a good thing for the BBC is another matter.

Oh, and whatever happened to Danny Cohen ... ?

Finally this thread probably doesn't need that sort of contributor who doesn't watch a programme but feels the need to make a post telling us that, and why, they don't. Not that this will stop them.

Never bothered with Top Gear, can't stand the *****.

Amazon are pumping an awful lot of money into this. I only dipped in and out of TG, mainly for the bigger tour type ones as it happens. So I will be watching it sometime. Though possibly not.

Would it entice me to join Prime, or in my case renew? Does it have such an impact in their main markets to figure that is a good outlay? I know Amazon look beyond the TV side, an its all about bringing everyone into their bubble for all things, but still. There again I was always surprised by their viewing figures elsewhere, so what the **** do I know!

Usual stuff. Man with a 34 inch waist pair of jeans and a 44 inch overhang bantering with small man with goatee beard and tired looking old head on loan from Wishbone Ash, plus a few minutes talking about cars. That said, they could certainly be of some help to the Top Gear production team in how to keep an audience.

I'm on a Xmas do. The very thought of it has annoyed me all week - shouldn't be allowed in November.

However, the whole point of Amazon is it's less linear way of viewing, so it is kind of irrelevant which night of the week it is. (God, 'linear' how wanky of me).

Don't forget that we are now in a non-linear viewing world (apparently - whatever that means ...). You may have to spend a lot of time in the pub ...

The Grand Tour

Sounds like a Wallace & Gromit adventure. Is this the one where they re-visit the moon, then Wallace punches an astronaut cos the nutrition sachet has not been sufficiently reheated? If so, I'm in.

Can't stand Hamster Hammond. He should be called Weasel Hammond for how much he wants to shove his head up Clarksons back side.
