The “State of Top Gear” Address

Something occurred to me while I was catching up season 25 Top Gear UK season on DVR. The latest iteration of Top Gear is really good! Was it late? Extremely. Was I drunk? Quite. But the episode where Chris, Freddie, and Paddy are confined to a sedan for the entire episode was quite entertaining, with […]

Top Gear season 25 premieres on March 3rd

Top Gear Teases a Great Season

Earlier we have seen a quick preview of the upcoming season 25 of Top Gear. You know Top Gear, the original motoring show from the UK, now hosted by two Brits and an American – Matt LeBlanc, Chris Harris, and Rory Reid. Well, BBC America, where the show will air this spring, is giving us […]

Top Gear (UK) Season 25 is Coming…

Season 24 of the O.G. Top Gear, the unofficially named Top Gear UK, was pretty good. Gone was Chris Evans and most of the crap that came with him. Three hosts, Matt LeBlanc, Chris Harris, and Rory Reid, were present and… they worked together better than anyone expected them to. All in all their first season […]

The Grand Tour – Season 2

If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again, right? The first season of the hyped Grand Tour left me a bit… underwhelmed. It was exactly what I, and many others expected, the continuation of adventures that the three idiot hosts started at TopGear. But somehow, for me, it wasn’t ideal. I hoped for improvement […]

Opinion: New-new Top Gear was pretty good

A new era of Top Gear started when the Jezza, Hamster, and Captain Slow departed BBC. New hosts, many of them, new producers, and new desperation to keep a dying show relevant. And it stunk. I couldn’t take after watching the first episode. Then The Grand Tour came on Amazon and… and after much hype […]

Hooniversal Opinion: Top Gear Season 24 Episode One

  Top Gear returns for its 24th season, and the trio picked to lead it all has taken the shape of its final form… we think. Gone is Chris Evans, and in his fiery wake we’re left with Matt LeBlanc, Chris Harris, and Rory Reid. This seems like a proper group of chaps heralded to […]

Top Gear Series 24 trailer debuts, looks promising

They’re back. Moving into its twenty-fourth series, the BBC recently debuted the latest Top Gear trailer for enthusiasts and casual viewers alike to lay eyes on. It looks promising, with all the top-notch production and editing quality we’ve come to appreciate melded with the new hosts’ personalities and presenting capabilities displayed at their finest. There seems to be some […]

Life After Top Gear: The 20:00 Void

What to do? There’s a 42″ black rectangle where there should be a moving image of something exotic being thrapped to within an inch of its carbon-fibre life. My Sunday Evening living room is no longer home-cinema filled with mind-blowing visuals, flat-plane crank V8 howls or tinkling piano-meets-Marina crashes. With the house being freed of […]
