And 10pm for those of us in BBC Wales, unless I want to watch a non HD version.
Depends on your TV and where in Wales you are, one of mine can pick up West in HD. Another TV can't and through the same aerial.

Thank the lord.

I can sleep sop much better now, knowing that some weirdo feels the need to tell me (and others) he's not watching a TV programme. I can only assume you're some kind of big deal.

You'll notice most people don't feel the need to tell people "I don't watch midsummer murders" or "I just don't watch ant and dec on Saturday night tv"

Mainly because we aren't narcissistic bell ends laugh

The eco warriors will be writing a strongly worded letter to the Mail complaining that they are churning up sacred peat bogs and leaving (staged) automotive parts all over it.

Yes they now replace presenters every few series.

That is better ?

Plus didn’t Clarkson already do this :

Why can’t the German actually talk instead of screaming and wailing all the time?

Hardly new challenge either, didn’t Clarkson do similar in a Disco, then took a cheap 4x4 through fields in a fox hunt one too?

Nope, but I'm guessing she's a south park fan too?

As embarrassing as continuously putting Rory in st cars in the UK while the others go abroad in all sorts of exotica?
I think you misunderstood the point of my post

Matt would be better doing the whole show on his own. Can't stand Harris, more interested in his own voice and ego trying to outdo Le Blanc.

And Rory just irrelevant.

Because Matt’s last series and Chris will become the lead.

Keep up, slow coach.

Maybe his schedule and/or contract limits him to (mainly) short UK only pieces?

Honestly mate I don't watch it. I don't class posting on a thread RE the program as bothering with it. Still, if you enjoy it, watch it by all means.
But it is odd you bother to post about it. I mean, I don't watch Eastenders, yet don't go on a thread saying I don't watch it.

I didn't watch tonight, but will do tomorrow. I think that TG has generally improved since its 1st iteration without Clarkson et al, yet I still prefer it will Clarkson.

Decent Harris & Le Blanc segments driving through Norway, carrying on from where they left off last series.
The Rory and Sabine bit was instantly forgettable.
Never heard of the star (although I'm sure many have), trying far to hard to be funny.

Pleasant enough way to spend an hour on a Sunday night.
