Default Top Gear UK, Season 24 ... how is it?

So, series/season 24 of Top Gear is currently airing now; yesterday was the third episode of the series.

First off - most importantly, they got rid of that annoying Chris Evans!
Second - the test track for the SitRPC is back to it's old configuration.

So now it's just Matt LeBlanc, Chris Harris and Rory Reid. IMHO, Matt and Chris seem to have a fairly decent on-screen chemistry now. Rory does fairly well on his own, but seems like he's still having trouble fitting in with the other two when it's the three of them together.

While I am still a bigger fan of the Clarkson/Hammond/May years of TG, I'm just gonna go ahead and say it:
While I did not like series 23 at all, so far, series 24 is pretty good and I'm enjoying it.



So, what do y'all think?

it's pretty bad IMO... they are still trying to imitate clarkson/may/hammond and it just comes off as fake and the jokes are lame. it will never be the same, but that's probably not a bad thing as it's a show about cars not about the presenters.

i used to love chris harris on youtube, his car reviews were great. now i think they are trying to make him into a "character" and it's really cheesy.

What they are doin has always been a top gear thing, if you notice clarkson and team are trying not to copy top gear.

Pretty wild how there's a new Top Gear for America after Top Gear USA ended.

I enjoyed the first episode, the car content is great as always, the hosts not soo much.

Still seems dialogue and back and forth is forced compared to Clarkson, Hammond and May.

I'd rather have 5 shitty seasons of any car show vs another season of dancing with the stars, the voice, or season one billion of Survivor.

Stop hating on these car shows you *******.

I watched an episode yesterday, and I arguably didn't hate it.
