I think 3 was a lot better, one of their road trips.

there's something lacking about The Grand Tour, the silly bits seem to be too silly, i.e. the celebrity being killed, that one where they played at  being soldiers ad nauseum, but the funny bits were what I was more interested in, as I'm not a petrol head at all, i can drive my car, and put petrol in it, and if I'm adventurous I'll check the tyre pressure ( I only know how to do them from doing it on a push bike ;) ) )

However the one I watched last night (it aired just before Christmas) had James May doing a piece on the Le Mans 24hr race, and that bit was really good.

I'm guessing it wont share the same audience as The Grand Tour but I'm finding James May's Reassembler an enjoyable watch.

Owes a lot to the old Out of Town with Jack Hargreaves.

(Shut up and Google it. Yes I am that old)

Ooh I'll give that a go, I've enjoyed some of his other series where he's built stuff like the lego house.

I know what you mean about James May the Reassembler. I was beginning to think I was alone in taking things to bits ;-)

It's the not having a bit left over that's the challenge.

How I know most of what I know is having taken stuff apart and had the 'Oh that's how it works' moment.
Balanced out by the 'Oh **** it, let's buy a new one' occasions.

just watched part 1 of the Beach Buggy CHallenege, now that's more like it :) Probably 'cos it's cut and paste formula from Top Gear ;)
