It was fun, scripted and forced, but still fun to watch.

Lets see, Hammond is driving too fast and too close to the edge, obviously he's going to put it in the ditch... which he does, no doubt on purpose. We see it flip on it's side, but only see it happen from the inside. No doubt because they pushed it over on purpose. But whatever.

Mrs. Highlander and I really enjoyed it. I have driven that Applecross road they showed. Scared the hell out of me driving through a cloud with the two way traffic on a single track road.

Hammond's Dodge Charger RT didn't last long. From what I could gather, a brake caliper failed and broke off (rim damage?), jamming the front wheel, which caused the transmission to bind (?) and somehow caused the engine to implode?

What am I missing?

AWD restomod?

I watched a chunk of the episode, but did more fast forwarding than actual viewing. Standard Top Gear/Grand Tour formula content. Found it all rather dumb, after years of the same sort of stuff from these three.

We have as well. Good so far. We particularly enjoyed the bits about Pompeii and the tunnels under Naples.

Always look forward to the new episodes of TGT, even if they are the same old formula. Wink

May have to give that one a watch. We're planning an Italy trip for next April.

In for sure. My favorite countries with my favorite presenters.

Side note: Clarkson's Farm S2 finished filming last month and should be out around New Year's.

Thanks. I'll have to find it and watch with my wife. She spent a total of 2 years over there for work so I'm sure she'll have an interesting critique.

I thought it was underwhelming.
Its a James May show so, its features more esoteric and various oddities that May finds interesting or, the producers can find and get May twisted up.

He was going to be in America, but with pandemic did Italy, which I'm sure still limited what he could do. Hopefully USA is next.

Saw it on my Prime feed last night, but watched a bit more Expanse instead, as it was late.
May watch tonight.
