'Unmissable': Rory Reid, Matt LeBlanc and Chris Harris

 

Last night’s Top Gear has been hailed as the ‘best episode in years’ by fans who flocked to Twitter to praise the BBC motoring show.

 

Matt LeBlanc and Chris Harris entertained with a race across Dubai in a Bugatti Chiron and a Ducati 1299 Superleggera motorcycle, while Rory Reid took on Harris and Sabine Schmitz in a giant game of Pac Man.

 

Fans were clearly impressed with the new trio with some branding the series “unmissable” while another branded LeBlanc a Top Gear “God”.

 

One fan tweeted: “OK, so I'm gonna put this out there, as a huge fan of the show I think tonight's #TopGear was possibly the best episode in years........”

 

Another wrote: “@Matt_LeBlanc we need you on a long term @BBC_TopGear deal, the show is becoming unmissable, last night was a gem #TopGear #MattLeBlanc.”

 

Others claimed it was better than the series’ with Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May at the helm, writing: “#TopGear When you realise the show that sacked you is better than the one you’re doing for a c***** internet service!”

 

Harris recently opened up about why he thinks the show is growing on viewers. 

 

Speaking to The Sun he said: “It’s a bit more car-orientated so the petrolheads are enjoying it.

“It’s never going to satisfy the full petrolhead audience but the car is at the centre of the show.”

While the new series of Top Gear is receiving positive reactions from viewers, the series’ debut saw a significant drop in ratings.

 

The first episode saw just 2.8 million viewers tune in on the initial broadcast – a drop of nearly two million on the 2016 launch.

The Chad went outside, got too much sun and burst into flames, igniting the Canadian forested wilderness which is now causing an Eclipse.

 

 

 

lmao! I had that experience once. Light's out, drunk didn't even notice it. When i went to the bathroom i wondered why my mouth tasted like copper. Started brushing my teeth and noticed when i spat out it was red then it hit me. Walked back into the bedroom turned the lights on and there were red finger prints on the wall, sheets were rekt and she was cleaning herself with a towel. I almost got upset at first for not telling me but i was like oh well zero **** given.

Ed China decide he didnt like the way Velocity wanted to go with the show with a more american appeal with less mechanics and more stupid stuff, but he has wished the show well they just had a difference in the way the show is to go

 

he has a few irons in the fire and there are rumours he and the Bearded Wonder from Gas Monkey could be doing something in the very near future ;)

Is it episode 4? 

Yes

oh and i'm enjoying the show now, refused to watch it with that fooking ginger twat hosting it.

 

Le Blanc is good, the other 2 guys work well and the chemistry between them is natural

they should have just gone with Le Blanc as host and worked out who he works best with.  wasted the last series IMO

 

Glad he gave them an ultimatum to dump Evans and let him pick the other 2.  its picking up now

imo chris harris is the best of new lineup, hes been reviewing cars a long time and he can actually drive. le blanc is alright but not a huge fan and rory isnt very good imo but hes pleasant enough.

 

 

crhis evans is just an awful ****, no idea how he even got famous.

Been catching up with the latest series.  So much better than the try hard efforts of last series.  I'm probably enjoying them a bit more than the Grand Tour to be honest.

 

I would say it goes like this:-

 

OG Top Gear (well, the one with Clarkson/May/Hammond) >> Current Top Gear > Grand Tour >>>>>>>>>>>>>>Evans Top Gear
