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

I agree. Nothing new or innovative. Same basic show, but still entertaining.
I don't know what people in other countries think of "The American" but I hope they get rid of him like they did with the first Stig.

Being relatively new to the family, I end up going down a lot of rabbit holes looking at forum history. I just got around too this thread and think it deserves a bump to see what people who watched Grand Tour on Amazon thought of it.
Frankly, I didn't think much one way or the other. It was fun for us that they did one in Nashville but the new show didn't really come across as different or innovative. More or less the same product dusted off but without the Stig. Meanwhile, I find Chris Harris enjoyable to watch even if he does drift too much. On the other hand, man can he drift.

I'm pretty excited about it being on Amazon. I use the heck out of amazon already. In fact, just filled a "Pantry" box today with a $5 credit for no rush shipping on something that I would have paid a few bucks more for elsewhere.
This Car Show might be the first thing Amazon actually makes a profit on! Probably not though.

First off, one does not punch coworkers for any reason, save for self-defense.
2nd, that wasn't the case here as per all news stories.
3rd, do you know the punchee pushed the issue? I'd guess that the BBC would have - correctly - fired Clarkson in any case.
4th: Clarkson has a weekly newspaper column:

There are also tricks like "no rush shipping" that gives you a $1 credit and usually gets delivered in two days anyways. We use that and Netflix rather than cable. Top Gear and racing were the only things I missed, so now there's one fewer reason to miss cable/sat.

|KCZ||The Top Gear finale is being broadcast by BBCA tonight at 9 pm EDT. In the meantime, Clarkson et al are reportedly in talks with various other networks regarding a new show, and the BBC's efforts to revive Top Gear look dead in the water.|

As you see above, many here would do the same.
BBC did what it had to do, and should have done.
