    Im glad the got rid of the American driver. That was awful! Liking the new season so far, you can definitely tell they ironed out a few things from last season.

    It seems like they are starting to catch their stride. Their chemistry improves with every episode!

    Agreed. The end of the last episode had me laughing pretty constantly.

    I still haven't figured out what's keeping me from being super excited for it every week. Those 3 have been together for nearly 15 years now, and it feels forced where it once felt fluid. I know it's been scripted the whole time, but it didn't FEEL scripted on the BBC. I dunno if that's them trying to dodge legal battles with the BBC, or if it's just that the concept may have just run its course.

    I still find myself watching each week, and it did kinda force me into getting Acorn and BritBox through amazon, so I guess it is serving its purpose for them.

    I blame Amazon more so than the hosts. Amazon is used to throwing money at a project and backing away. I think they have to be way more involved in this "live" show compared to a scripted series or movie. I think BBC had 15 years of knowing the cadence of their conversations and who they are as people, Amazon is figuring it out though.

    They need a different table and camera angle for "the news". The way it's setup right now is too rigid. Not sure if it's the table or if it's the camera angle, or both. But they need a way to loosen that up. The jag segments felt spot on the money though.

    I'm so glad they got rid of the american driver. But, I think that they need to actually use the driver they have to give some insight as to her opinion of the cars she drives and how they compare or something. the whole "right, lets see what you got!" stuff at launch is annoying.

    But, other than that, I think I'm enjoying this season much more than the first. So glad that celebrity brain crash is gone.
