** Official ** Top Gear Season 23 thread



New extended trailer!









UPDATED with more videos. The first trailer for Season 23 of Top Gear just dropped on Youtube. I watched it with no expectation and it actually looks entertaining. I have doubts about the new casts ability to fill the impossibly big shoes vacated by Jeremy, James and Richard but will tune in to find out.

Chris Evans' personality seems irritating. Maybe it is amplified by his glasses.

Will give it a shot. I watch(ed) the "good ol' top gear" as a secondary task while working.

I still approve of Clarkson punching Piers Morgan. Piers had it coming, and it just so happened that Clarkson got the opportunity.

Wow, this new diverse cast makes me realize how boring three old white guys were. Thanks BBC!

I have my doubts. Amazon used a gen 2 Mercedes SL in 1962 Berlin, so wtf do they know about cars?

It's fair to say it hasn't been an easy ride for BBC's rebooted car show Top Gear as it speeds into a new season in May. There has been plenty of tabloid speculation about new host Chris Evans' supposed antics on set, then executive producer Lisa Clark quit, and to cap it all off the show came under fire for filming scenes near a London war memorial in March.

The latest controversy threatening to careen the show off its comeback trail are rumors that Evans and co-host Matt LeBlanc-the American star of Friends , aka the big casting coup BBC is banking on bringing in viewers after Jeremy Clarkson's acrimonious exit-are "at war."

The Sun reports the pair's relationship has turned frosty with Evans allegedly blaming LeBlanc for the unwise stunt at the Cenotaph in London in March. The actor was seen driving a souped-up Ford Mustang, performing donuts near the monument.

Clarkson would have done the same thing and not given a **** about it. He would have said something like vets love a good smoke burnout so if anything it was honoring them. The new hosts are too pansy to make a good show.

This show is going to suck. I hate Chris Evans to begin with, they should have just stuck with LeBlanc and Chris Harris and called it good.

I'll be watching Amazon come fall.

Matt LeBlanc Takes On The Ariel Nomad - Top Gear Season 23

This quick clip gives me hope for season 23. I'll be tuning in either way, for how many episodes is to be seen.
