After episode 2 which was generally received with mixed reaction – mostly negative and episodes 1 & 3 which were highly praised, there is no way Amazon’s The Grand Tour could possibly discourage the possibility of BBC’s Top Gear renewal any further – Right?

WRONG! After last night’s fourth episode, it’s obviously apparent that this was the last nail in the Coffin for Top Gear – Rest in Peace.

This week’s episode saw the boys return to their home town – Whitby

This week’s episode saw the boys return to their home town – Whitby and after last week’s beautiful Italian “Grand Tour”, this week saw the trio rather back to their old, cheap, car challenges.

So, they’d enjoyed their fish-and-chips banter from last week’s episode that Clarkson and co decided to stick around in Jezza’s native Yorkshire for a second dispatch.

Clarkson and co decided to stick around in Jezza’s native Yorkshire for a second dispatch.

“It’s the only place on earth where all three of us have had a car crash,” Clarkson said.

There followed zany recollections of fender benders from the annals – and a rare reference by Richard Hammond to his 2006 brush with death in a jet-powered dragster down the road in York.

An event fans of The Old Top Gear remember as clear as day.

A sign of the series’ growing confidence is that it is willing to dispense with the fireworks.

For the second week running, special effects took a back seat as Clarkson compared and contrasted a BMW and a Porsche on a rainy test-track.

Nothing flashy – just a middle age man banging on about cornering and acceleration.

Clarkson’s rants were even more bizarre, taking on Cyclists and foreigners as Jezza unleashed a broadside against tourism website TripAdvisor.

I can’t be the only one who immediately thought of BBC when Jeremy Clarkson said,

“I’m trying to think of a metaphor, for someone who’s really tried their hardest with something, and it hasn’t worked.”– A funny jab that had me laughing so hard.

The cheap land rover eco-challenge in this week’s episode was genuinely funny. Hammond’s tree Land Rover – treety-i was impressive.

May’s attempt at a mud land rover, then to brick and finally to hay was simply sad and funny to watch.

 

Clarkson’s Meaty-i Land Rover was disgusting and May’s attempt at a mud land rover, then to brick and finally to hay was simply sad and funny to watch.

The Episode was almost perfect but…

After 3 attempts, it is vastly apparent that Celebrity Brain Crash needs to go.

In less than a month we’ve gone from Jeremy Renner jumping out of a plane in California to Jimmy Carr bustling around a Whitby harbor on a jet ski.

Time to bin the terminally unfunny Celebrity Brain crash before they’re out of actual celebrities to pretend-kill.

Also, “The American” (The fourth presenter and tame racing driver) isn’t funny at all. Rather, he is beginning to become uncharacteristically annoying. A new approach is needed rather quickly.

After 4 episodes, it is very clear that The Grand Tour is fast taking over the factual television genre as the old Top Gear Once did. Episodes 1-4 are now available on Amazon Prime.
