Last night, the last episode of the Grand Tour season two went up. It's a "mini-special," going from the coast of Mozambique to a village in the interior carrying fish to feed the village.
I'm not sure how many others are fans of the Clarkson-May-Hammond trio from Top Gear, but I felt this season was a step back from previous years, and I can't really put my finger on why, other than to say that everyone just feels older, or like they're doing more going through the motions. I was on paternity leave for two weeks recently and ended up watching a lot of the old show and thought the difference was stark.
Maybe it's seeing Hammond nearly die, again, that cast a pall over the rest of the season. Maybe there's less of a sense of daring after the replacement cast of Top Gear was such a flop. Or maybe I'm wrong. What'd you all think?
