Cringeworthy - in most all respects.
The best bits:
Bringing Evans on, seemingly 'unconscious' on a stretcher. Would have been improved though, by him staying that way for the remainder of the show.
Test drive of the McLaren, but only the segment with Jensen Button in. AT LAST - someone who can drive!!! Say what you like about Clarkson, but he and Hammond really knew how to get a fast car around their track and have some fun whilst they were at it. Evans just looks like he is going shopping! Captain Slow would certainly get around faster!
Seasick Steve. Not anything he did, just him. Totally cool guy! Seemed to just totally 'get' how dumb the whole thing was.
The worst bits:
The Africa segments. Competition: Don't spill the cocktail whilst driving up a seemingly flat track? Really??? Was that the best they could do? And why put three minor 'celebrities' in the cars with them? Is this a realisation that their own choice of presenters just can't carry it off on their own?
Evans telling the audience that even though he only just told Jensen Button that the Mclaren was no longer available to buy (all sold and at a totally outrageous cost) he had just managed to buy the last one as a punter had just dropped out.
That was just pure arrogance and showboating on Evans's part, 'waving his wad' at everyone watching and bragging that he has more money and can buy whatever he wants, whenever he wants it.
Star in a car. WTF? Question: Why? Just why?
Everything else. Even the Stig looks like he would rather move over to Amazon.
Well - TG and Evans has had two hours of my life. I consider that more than a fair crack of the whip. But no more.
