Watched the Christmas Special & both the Season 22 episodes when they were released.

I can safely opine that they've averaged out. The trio have lost the edge they had before.

I had my doubts at the end of Season 21, but now I'm sure of myself that I'm not letting current Top Gear eat away into my memories of what it was.

Maybe the trio had nothing to graduate to and assumed new faces would have taken time to be accepted by viewers. Hence dragged the series on.

Anyway.

Season 22, Episode 3 Trailer:

Quote:
This week its all about the ambulances, as Jeremy, James and Richard bid to build a better emergency response vehicle. Predictably, Jeremy’s idea to improve the ambulance revolves almost entirely around greater speed, while James’s is based – of course – on enhanced comfort and a soothing environment. Richard, on the other hand, decides to embark on a mission ‘to get people out of the way more effectively’. The results are explosive.

Oh Yes! They're back! The top gear nonsense that we all cherish & adore so dearly, is back!

Just finished watching the 3rd episode. It was really good. Just the same old 3 middle aged men falling about

SIARPC was good as well. Get ready to be surprised!

Yes, the 22nd season is turning out to be true to the controversial TG style which most love. As far as my tastes go, 1st was ok, 2nd was best so far & 3rd episode was good.

Just watched E2 and it was lovely. No, not because they had Alexis Sanchez in it. All the 3 cars were great and the time just flew down under. Nice one!

Top Gear Series 22: Episode 4 trailer

BMW’s i8 super-hybrid, the Merc-AMG GT, the new M3 and an old Land Rover on the side of a very steep dam. Really excited to watch this one as well.

I really like episode 2 - Australian Road Trip. I fell in love with BMW M6 Gran Coupe. I must confess that I think the M6 Gran Coupe is rather attractive. And my jaws dropped when I saw those alloys it donned.

Enjoyed watching episode 3 as well. Lots of laughs. Seems to be a very enjoyable season. Daniel Ricciardo creamed everyone with that lap. Dont think he applied the breaks all lap. Dont know if many noticed but Hammond mentions that all three attempts by Ricciardo hovered around the same lap time. That kid is quick!!

The 2nd episode was real EPIC! 3 drool-worthy cars on dusty roads!
And The Stig going sideways in that GTR was an icing on the cake! Man he has guts!

The third episode, where they built ambulances has got be one of the funniest episodes of Top Gear. From May's patient not reaching the hospital, to Hammond's patient shooting device. A must watch. I have to say, initially I was sceptical, especially after that Patagonia special that Top Gear wouldn't be as funny. But they they proved me wrong by far.

The 2nd episode was really nice.
But I'm waiting for the ultimate comparison- LaFerrari vs Porsche 918 vs McLaren P1
That will be insane
Does anyone know which episode that will be?

I have loved the new series, so far.

I loved the dig at Argentina in the beginning of the second episode, when discussing the license plates. The cars in the quarry were quite awesome and drool-worthy scenes.

LaFerrari will be tested by James May in the 5th episode. (source :Wiki)
Not sure about the ultimate comparison- LaFerrari vs Porsche 918 vs McLaren P1.

Whoa Daniel! I am sure Lewis has planned for his third visit already.

3 episodes down and not a single review so far. No, I am not complaining. Been a good season so far, with that second one being the best.
