    If by ďboysĒ you mean men soon to be eligible for a bus pass, but yes, they are back and letís hope theyíve put some effort in this time.

    Personally Iím really looking forward to the return of Top Gear.

    Knobs. Childish, irritating knobs.

    There are plenty of genuinely-funny parts of TGT.

    That and the feature on Jim Clark - fantastic.

    Childish they are, but it is good entertainment in my opinion. Looking forward to both TGT and TG returning. Room for both now.

    Childish they are, and I feel that is enviable. The acting for the camera element aside, what's wrong with acting like a child and just having some silly fun? Considering the idea that it's just acting, well it still makes me long for not worrying so much about life and just going about and being a bit daft once in a while. The challenges they do are the stuff my younger self would only dream about, and are things I'd still dream about. Hat off to them.

    Looking forward to it.

    Youíve never used the term ĎIím off out for a few pints with the boysí even though it was men, not actual boys you were meeting up with?
    Maybe itís a regional thing then because everyone I know in my area uses that terminology.

    Bit of a shame to see not much love for them here. I think its great entertainment.

    I've always thought Clarkson was a bit of a plonker but at least he's now admitted that man-made climate change is a thing.

    I love Grand Tour and Top Gear. Good fun, don't care if it's scripted, makes me chuckle and I can't wait

    there'll be some new old watches or some new watches then plus there are sometimes clips of their houses and I think - how much are you earning? (jealousy is a terrible thing)

    Lots of people will feel the need to tell everybody that they hated it for various reasons, and they will watch every episode so that they can tell everybody how much they hate it.
    Although no trees were harmed during the creation of this post, a large number of electrons were greatly inconvenienced.

    Series 1 maybe, but surely not now? I havenít seen any marketing for this (3rd?) series and none of my friends or colleagues has even mentioned the program in 18 months. I didnít even watch beyond the first couple of episodes of the 2nd season and then forgot it existed it was so Ďmehí. Happy it exists if thereís an audience but itís not on the radar of Ďmust see TVí at all is it?

    Glad it is back. I only just watched the final episode on prime a couple of weeks back. The grand tours they do were nearly always better than those that were set around the studio

    This ^^^^^^^ however I have recently found myself reruns of Fast and Loud, chasing Cars, Counting Cars, Kindig, Overhaullin, etc, etc plus watching woodworking and golfing videos on YouTube, so what do I know.

    Fortunately it mostly harmless fun and better entertainment (IMHO) than watching some Z lister cry on a reality TV show.

    Episode 1 is set on the Mekong Delta, but a lot of the short clips were actually filmed on the Saigon River.

    I sat next to them in the restaurant (The Deck, District 2) next to our apartment one eveing after filming.

    I went to The Deck with the other half on one of our trips to Vietnam. Bagged the first table on the deck by the jetty. Arrived and left by speedboat. Felt like Bond. It was an amazing experience.

    Just finished watching episode 1. Not bad at all. Not the best ever, but good enough. As is often the case, the historical segments were the best bits. Now this is probably crazy thinking, but you know how the BBC have been looking without success for an eventual replacement for David Attenborough? Clarkson, ironically, could fill that role.
