The whole point of Amazon’s The Grand Tour was to have a big traveling tent as the show’s studio, was it not? That’s what was supposed to make it different from The Show That Must Not Be Named, right? Well, for The Grand Tour’s upcoming second season, it seems that the tent will not be, er, touring.
Would you like to talk about cars alongside potentially irritating co-hosts on an original Amazon Prime show? Do you have an unnatural fondness for denim and prog rock, but are too British to be Jay Leno? We found the temp job for you!
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.
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.
Say what you will about Jeremy Clarkson nowadays. He’s too bombastic, too silly, too formulaic – but it’s a formula that works. If you don’t believe me, just watch his very first Top Gear appearance, and watch his own face as he sees it. Fair warning, the clip from the original show is deeply strange.
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.
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.
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.
The trailer for the second episode of The Grand Tour, Amazon Prime’s new show that definitely isn’t just Top Gear, is up and it looks like this is the episode with most of the explosions.
I think for many of us, it was the $3.2 million opening scene of The Grand Tour that really made the show. Following some cranky, paunchy Englishman from a wet London cab across an ocean, into a crazy modified Mustang, and then into the desert, where he’s met by a flotilla of amazing, insane cars, was perfect. And we…
