Well, I didn't see that coming.

Spoiler: Show
Said nobody, ever

Chris Evans trying too hard to be Jeremy Clarkson, Matt LeBlanc looking bored the whole time, and nothing interesting about any of it.

Not like anyone ever watched Top Gear for any reason other than to hear Jeremy Clarkson be a filthy old man :p

Pshh, this show was DBA (dead before arrival).  Even their announcements on Facebook and such were getting huge levels of hate. I'm excited for the trio's Amazon show.

Eh. You can't clean Top Gear up. It was what one might diplomatically call 'distinctive' personalities ranting... and there happened to be some cars. If you remove the personalities all you've got is the cars.

Good luck on people tuning in for the insightful reviews of them.

You want Top Gear to be a success you go find another half-tamed arsehole who likes cars. You know, the ignorant uncle figure that a certain group dreams of being. It's... vicarious. You've gotta have a figure that people identify with and that broadly speaking is their culture amplified.

It used to be three grumpy old white british dudes.

Now it's a ginger englishman, an american, an irish dude, a german lady.. etc.

Chris Evans is the manic charisma ghost of presenters.

...That was a really shit line, wasn't it?

I am always hoping that eventually some BBC executive will have a chat with another BBC executive, it will be explained to them that it's not actually 1991 anymore, then they'll both have a jolly good laugh about the mistake, then Chris Evans will no longer appear on television from that point on.

The predictable failure of Top Gear Minus Racism gives me the added hope that this will occur soon.
