Were Hammond's struggles an homage to every Warren Miller film?

I know it's the same old formula every time, but I love it. I can't get enough of these episodes. I hope these guys keep doing these specials forever.

My wife and I watched it yesterday. Very pleasant, though obviously staged to a large degree. The mysterious tunnel's occupants and the downhill skiing event using the rather large "bobsled" could hardly have occurred spontaneously, and the later incident (if it happened as portrayed) might have had deadly consequences. Still, the tour was fun and I'd recommend it.

Part of this show and the previous TG show specials, was the producers taking advantage of situations as they presented and creating an environment that allowed the Three to fill-out a scene. They did reality television without all the producing and processing that the big networks created. Besides being quite comfortable with each other, they all know their character's role and naturally play-it-up to an absurd level. Clarkson is the over-bearing buffoon, May is the fastidious pseudo-intellectual, and Hammond is the enthusiastic but, naive simpleton.

That was awesome. I'm still skeptical how the repaired the Evo to be road worthy. There can't be a lot of spare Mitsubishi parts in Sweden.

It was fun, though completely unbelievable.

Mitsubishi used to be a major player in the Rally Race circuit at one time with their Lancer. While not as big as their Japanese counterpart Suburu, parts availability for an EVO shouldn't be a problem.

finally got a chance to watch it and in addition to the photography which is always stunning, there really were some truly funny segments

I wish them continued success but this was a really good episode

Attempted to watch at the office, Prime blocks streaming via VPN it seems. Just getting an error when trying to resume.

No go with the Video though.

Got it to work, a few genuine laugh out loud moments.
That poo Evo, would've been my choice of the 3.

May got put through the ringer.
The downhill 'skiing' was pretty hilarious.

The banter these guys can generate and maintain is the stuff of legend. I can only imagine what its like to be around when the cameras are off.
