    December 8th? Bollocks. One of the guys had tweeted November 19th a while back. Eh, I can wait.

    Focusing solely on the road trips, and not having any of the more overt tent comedy bits is for me, and a good one. It'll make this the kind of show I wished it was from the beginning. I'm actually hopeful that this upcoming season is reflective of that, it certainly is in the trailer.

    Don't know if anyone's still watching but a couple episodes from this season have been quite good, including this past week's

    I got anxiety just watching that. 34 mile bridge over water? Bridge 2,000' over the terrain below? Thanks, but no thanks.

    At least it's made of steel and concrete, not like some of the rickety wooden bridges they were across a few episodes ago. Those make me nervous to watch.

    Plus it's China so you know it's slave labor.

    They said 6000 miles of highways a year? Amazing. And here in my country we can't finish fucking few km for many years, arrgh.

    Also, segment about Jim Clark in previous episode was pretty good.

    I'm anxious for next season when they ditch the tent and just do the long adventures for each episode. It's what they should have done all along instead of trying to copy the TG format, but now I'm glad they saw that was the way to go at all.

    Nio EP9 is a beast, surprising lap time though.

    Also surprising, Grand Tour has been pretty tremendous so far this season. IMO the Colombia 2-parter was the best thing the trio has done in years, and the China episode was great too.

    I sent this video to my mom, who has grievances of her own about bike lanes

    Like I needed another reason to dislike that spoiled, over-aggressive man-baby.

    For the longest time I looked the other way as far as comments he made, but his idea that people should just now accept Brexit (after being against it himself apparently) instead of fighting it gave me some pause.

    That said, I'll still watch nearly anything he does.
