So - the first episode of the long awaited (by me anyway) Amazon version of Top Gear is available on Prime, and by now probably half the internet as well.
My thoughts - they have taken the best bits of Top Gear, distilled them into a massive budget, lost all the BBC shackles, and come out with a programme that had me chuckling in places while still feeling as familiar and comfortable as your favourite pair of boots.
Following a very funny opening sequence that I won't spoil for you, the first episode introduces the format and finally pits the LaFerrari, MacLaren P1 and Porsche together as you may remember they had been trying to do before Clarkson got all fisty. They introduced the new track, blew round it in a BMW M2, demonstrated what I think is the end of celebrity guests, and generally engaged in the usual silliness that they are known for.
All in all, a good scene setter and gives me hope that the following episodes will be just as enjoyable. Welcome back gents
