They seem to have very intentionally stuck to tried-and-true, and I can't blame them. It also seems like the internet vehemently hated "the American", so I'll be surprised if he sticks around or is unchanged.
Overall, I really enjoyed. I already had prime (pretty much do 90% of my shopping there, and I use it for music instead iTunes), so it is a great value overall. Especially since I have a 4K TV, so there is some novelty in having the colors and clarity done so well.
As far as first seasons go, it blew the US Top Gear out of the water and even the trio's earlier seasons on BBC, so here's to hoping it keeps moving forward
