Amazon’s inaugural outing with The Grand Tour wasn’t perfect, but I think there was one thing most gearheads could agree on: we wanted more. Thankfully the streaming TV network/drone delivery service agreed, and the show will be back in October. Here’s our first look.
Other than host reactions and a short clip of what happened, we haven’t gotten much information on The Grand Tour host Richard Hammond’s huge, fiery crash during filming. But Hammond recently sat down to give the details, saying the crash “was like being in a tumble dryer full of bricks going down a hill.”
Everyone wants to know more about the circumstances surrounding Richard Hammond’s crash in Switzerland—even the racing governing body FIA, who believes the crash “tainted the reputation of motorsports,” reports Motorsport.com. Hammond crashed Saturday during the Hemberg Bergrennen hillclimb while filming the upcoming…
The Grand Tour host Richard Hammond is in the hospital after a big, fiery wreck. Jeremy Clarkson is holed up rewriting scripts for a quickly approaching second season. James May is in a “hell hole” of an airport traveling to a shoot that Hammond was supposed to do. You could say things are a bit chaotic over there.
The Grand Tour host Richard Hammond had an ugly, fiery crash while filming for the show’s second season in Switzerland, resulting in an airlift to the hospital shortly after he climbed from the car with a busted knee. But, straight from his hospital bed, Hammond wants everyone to know that he’s not dead.
If the re-rebooted Top Gear still wasn’t your thing and you’re still hungry for more of Clarkson, Hammond and May, the second season of The Grand Tour will hit Amazon Prime this October.
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…
