This Sunday the new season of Top Gear starts in the U.S., and I can’t imagine anyone just jumping into and watching something like that without proper preparation. That’s why I took it upon myself to cross the ocean, find the Top Gear set, and corner each of the three hosts and ask them the important questions. The…
Holy hallelujah, the car show is back. For a while there, my Sundays were spent looking forward to Game of Thrones and Westworld, sadly bereft of the plucky British motoring show that’s generally accepted as the automotive canon. I am now happy to report that Top Gear is once again back on the list of Things To Watch…
Being excited for a new season of Top Gear is very much like being excited for the holidays: you know great stuff is coming your way, you just aren’t quite certain of what it might be. This new Top Gear trailer makes me feel exactly that way.
Top Gear returns to BBC America on March 13th, but there’s been plenty of online content from co-host Chris Harris to feed off of for awhile. Now other Top Gear co-host Rory Reid also has a web show where he sets off in some nasty cars to drive on some nasty roads.
Top Gear returns next month, rejuvenated again, again, and there’s more good news—that silly ‘Star in a Rallycross Car’ segment is dead. It’s been replaced with a Toyota GT86. Things sound good.
The revived version of the BBC’s Top Gear without its old trio, whose new show got its own mixed reviews, had a tough time leading up to and throughout its return season. But with Chris Evans gone and trailers showing Chris Harris and Rory Reid taking bigger roles, this may be the revamp we’ve been waiting for.
As a Top Gear host, Rory Reid must travel around the globe to drive the world’s most interesting cars in its most interesting places. Here’s what that life looks like, through his Twitter feed.
Series 23 of Top Gear is over after six episodes. Chris Evans is gone. Chris Harris and Rory Reid are the stand-out favorites. Matt LeBlanc was somewhat of a surprise. Filming on Series 24 starts this September, so until then, let’s discuss the best aspects of the now Old-New-New Top Gear.
It’s been revealed that CHRIS HARRIS WASN’T A FAN OF THE ORIGINAL NSX. As you get over that, let’s discuss the rest of the finale of the first new-new Top Gear series.
This week’s Top Gear got the lowest ratings in the show’s history. C’mon. It wasn’t that bad, was it?
Falling ratings of Top Gear have prompted the BBC to rethink how much screen time the various hosts get, as an unsourced article from The Telegraph reports. The result should be less Chris Evans and more Rory Reid and Chris Harris. I suppose it’d be more charitable to just say people want more Harris and Reid, but…
Radio Shack didn’t fail because people stopped buying electronics. People love electronics, more now than ever. What changed was how people expected to buy them. Amazon killed Radio Shack. The new Top Gear didn’t fail because the presenters were bad, it failed because of expectations.
The new season of BBC’s Top Gear is just around the corner, and to celebrate the newly revamp series, the BBC is adding a half-hour behind-the-scenes show called “Extra Gear” hosted by new Top Gear co-host Rory Reid.
