Finally! Amazon has set the release date for the long awaited series, and it’ll be every Friday starting November 18th.Fans that are more into the binge watching mode will be disappointed by the format, but Amazon does things a little bit different than Netflix and Hulu. Considering the leaked footage from the show, it’ll be worth the wait!
- Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond will be hosting the show. So basically the same guys that made Top Gear fun in the first place will be hosting a Top Gear-like show. When comparing the new hosts of Top Gear to the current hosts of The Grand Tour, which group is more likable?
- The first episode is starting in style with a traveling tent used for the shows studio. They will alternate between taped and live portions, with the studio sequence being filmed in front of a live audience.
- Anyone interested in hybrid hypercars will love what the hosts are reviewing in the first episode. The McLaren P1, the Ferrari LaFerrari and the Porsche 918 Spyder will be the main cars to start. (The Spyder is the best one!!)
- Guest stars galore will grace the season, and they are starting out with two heavy hitters. Matt Damon and Charlize Theron will be the first viewers see, and will be the beginning of many high profile guests that will make a mockery of the guests on Top Gear.
It’s finally beginning for real, lawsuits and all. There is no doubt that the Top Gear lawyers will be watching the show with great interest, so be prepared to hear about a lawsuit sooner rather than later. It’s already off to a great start, and has snagged some of the biggest talent in the industry.
What do you think of the setup for the first show? Will you watch the series on a weekly basis?
