With the inaugural season of the Grand Tour (GT) in the books, and with the second season still a few months away I wanted to know whether anyone has been watching reruns of Top Gear (TG) on satellite, cable or streaming services?
Me, I’ve been watching the first 5 seasons of the 2nd version of Top Gear, and it seems to be helping me work through my Grand Tour withdrawal symptoms. I guess that speaks well for their new series. Still, there are so many other good-great series either on podcast or YouTube format to keep your automotive habit sated until the trinity return. I just found out about another group doing good work in Gears & Gasoline that the guys from Everyday Driver featured on a recent podcast.
And while I’m on the subject of automotive-centric shows both on cable and streaming services, does it seem that the genre has sort of exploded in the past 2-3 years? I mean wasn’t it only yesterday (when I was a small lad) that we had Motor Week on PBS to look forward to each week here in the US, and suddenly there are dedicated automotive channels with great content-programming that seemingly appeals to each niche of the automotive universe. I’m a fan, I just hope it doesn’t fade.
