Chris Evans is painful to watch. His one liners are drab and tasteless and his reviewing skills nothing to write home about.He just exudes a negative vibe. On the other hand Matt is great and should be allowed to be the anchor of the show.

It was more or less expected, he finally calls it quits. I believe its in both parties interests.

Whosoever thought he was a good fit for TopGear just because he bought a really expensive Ferrari. Good Riddance!

lol. Good riddance indeed. They look like misfits rather than people who actually live and breath cars and history. Barely any chemistry. TelePrompter can never replace a good chemistry.

He's redeemed some respect in my books. I really liked him when he was a guest, and his reaction when May asks to take his ferrari out was spot on!
He gave it a shot, was not successful, and thankfully stepped off. Good on him

Now lets have Matt, Chris, and Rory!

What is also in the background is that Chris Evans is being investigated for sexual assault

Evans is awesome... but didnt really fit the Top Gear DNA. Rory and Matt are completely OK in my books. And Top Gear is as interesting as ever even now.

Ill have disagree with you. James was so out of place when he joined so many years ago. Chemistry has to be built. Jeremy and friends and many years to do so.

Give the new folks (Evans is leaving anyways) some time and they will manage perfectly well. After all, the show is about cars and not a RomCom.

Well for me the show was boring because of Chris Evans. Matt LeBlanc is surprisingly pleasant and I found Chris Harris to be actually good. Its not the same show as it was earlier, but personally I feel it could work out well if they get a good replacement for Evans.

It will air sometime between September and October, will be exclusive to Amazon Prime. It was supposed to launch in June, but the launch seems to have been delayed and there is no info on the interwebs as of now regarding delay or new launch dates. However, rest assured, the pirates will be there to help us and expect places like streetfire or torrent sites to do the needful for us

There is no one to take forward the (entertaining) offensiveness of Jeremy, everyone was quite conventional or predictable. Chris Evans didn't have a USP, he did not attempt to don Jeremy's outrageous character either. For someone projected as Jeremy's replacement he did not appear as the show's lead host.

Sadly, there is no other politically-incorrect motoring show

I saw the series, its still an entertaining Car show just not at the same level as the previous hosts in my personal opinion.

I feel they have too many hosts, all they need is Rory, Matt & Chris Harris. Sabine is too robotic, looks like they have to switch on the Laugh signal light to make her laugh, The other guys is just for entertainment i guess.

CE was loud but was getting used to him.

The new guest section is horrible, specially how one guest introduces the other guest by reading on screen, total crap.

Speaking of Rory, his last film on Mustang was just awful, worst he showed total disrespect to CH's views on the Mustang in extra gears. He might be the next trouble maker.
