While filming an episode of The Grand Tour in Mozambique, host Richard Hammond wrecked his motorcycle, sustaining a head injury that left him laying unconscious in the road, far from anywhere where he could receive comprehensive medical attention. Things seem to have worked out fine, since Hammond now claims he is, in…
The Grand Tour launched with huge anticipation; veteran entertainers returning with the backing of Amazon, a company with a new-age digital strategy of distribution, without the rules we’d find on public broadcasting. Amazon made a show that is bringing a large existing audience through the pay wall, but did The Grand…
You may not have forgotten that tonight is the 13th and final episode of the premiere season of Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May’s Amazon Prime show, The Grand Tour. I almost did forget. And I haven’t yet seen the 12th episode. Nor the last 20 minutes of the 11th.
On a recent episode of the Grand Tour, we learned something truly tragic: Richard Hammond denies himself the joys of ice cream consumption because he seems to have conflated the concept of eating ice cream with his own sexual orientation. It’s tragic.
While we’ve all been distracted by whether its trio of ex-hosts’ new show is worth watching or not, the latest incarnation of Top Gear is still there, plodding along in the background. They’ve got a new season soon, and thank goodness, there’s not a single appearance of Chris Evans at all in the trailer.
In case you haven’t, ahem, “acquired” the Clarkson, Hammond and May-helmed show The Grand Tour yet, Amazon will be offering the first episode of the series for free to all Amazon customers starting tomorrow, December 23rd, and running through December 26th. Yes, that includes those of you without Prime.
For Amazon Prime users in India, The Grand Tour’s fourth episode reportedly wasn’t nearly as long as the rest of them—in fact, it was apparently less than half of the length it should have been due to censorship from Amazon for the Indian market.
The fifth episode of Amazon Prime’s The Grand Tour finally did something the show has failed to do up to now, which was to stop trying so damn hard. Less of the silly gags, less of the overblown scripted films, more cars and much more genuine entertainment. And guess what? At last, it works.
In a short time, The Grand Tour has set a record or two. Its $3.2 million opening is likely the most expensive television scene ever, and it had the most watched Amazon Prime premiere. But it also might have set a less flattering record: the most illegally watched show ever, beating Game of Thrones, The Walking Dead…
A number of drivers in Washington State have noticed something guaranteed to strike awe and fear into any mortal: a massive sculpted head of Jeremy Clarkson, strapped to the back of a truck, staring out over the world and silently judging. Plotting. Preparing for the coming of the Great Cleansing.
Can’t get enough of Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May on Amazon Prime’s new hit show, The Grand Tour? Instead of having to wait every week for the new episode, Amazon has managed to score seasons 2 through 17 of old-new Top Gear, as well as the specials.
Last night, while watching The Grand Tour, my wife noticed something odd. There was Jeremy Clarkson, draped in an elderly gentleman’s cardigan, as his cigarette habit has forced him into early senior citizenship. That was normal. But wasn’t normal was what was dangling from his wrists.
“Opera, Art and Donuts,” was the rallying cry of the third episode of The Grand Tour. One of us is convinced this episode was good enough that it should have been GT’s first episode, a solid return to form with motoring TV’s favorite trio; one of us is still bored.
The biggest voice in the car enthusiast world has once more trashed electric cars based on a bunch of misinformation and dipshittery. Jeremy Clarkson, what are you talking about, man?
The second episode of The Grand Tour was a huge disappointment for some of us last week, featuring jokes that missed the mark and a bizarre, in a bad way, time-warping action sequence. This week’s episode looks to snap back to being a fun show about cars.
“Operation Desert Stumble” is the title of the second episode of The Grand Tour, and it’s surprisingly fitting one. Like most of the ill-advised military adventures into other countries we’ve seen in the last decade and a half, it is big, expensive, full of explosions, and it leaves everyone wondering what its goal…
