The Grand Tour
Nee Top Gear



The return of former Top Gear hosts Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond, and James May is one of the most eagerly anticipated events in the automotive world. Their new Amazon-backed show, The Grand Tour, has been teased endlessly for months, and live tapings are currently underway. Now, though, we finally know when we can see what the infamous trio has been up to.

A video trailer on the Grand Tour's YouTube channel announced that the show will make its premiere on Amazon Prime Video on November 18th. The trailer shared doesn't reveal too much, but there's footage from the show's McLaren P1, LaFerrari, and Porsche 918 comparison test.

Otherwise, the production looks incredibly gorgeous, which is exactly what you'd expect from this trio. The revamped Top Gear might have to step up its game for their next season. We're just happy we have two well-produced automotive shows to watch.
Meh.  First, this is an Amazon production, which means it will evetually be watch for pay, even for Prime'rs. Second, I loved Top Gear, but by the end I'd pretty much stopped watching new epidodes, opting instead for re-runs of  earlier series.  Way more entertaining.  I hope I'm wrong though.  I do admire Richard Hammond's, and James May's loyaly to JC.

I haven't seen the Democrats this mad since we freed the slaves!

You've said that before about "watch for pay" from Amazon even if you're a Prime member. What do you mean? These shows are all included. If you have Amazon prime you never have to pay anything beyond that for Prime Video, especially for Amazon originals. It's the same model as Netflix, just with other benefits.

The only thing you have to pay for are individual episodes or seasons of things not on prime video. Unless I missed something it should all be free (with prime).

"It's the same model as Netflix ...."

No it's not. For $100 plus/year EVERYTHING that's visible on NetFlix's window is free.

For $100 plus/year ... well, here's an example: Earlier this week I wanted to watch "The Last Alaskans." Amazon has it. And you can watch it ... if you buy it. When we got hooked on" White Collar," we had to BUY the last two seasons ... Not only that, their library of decent movies is top heavy with 40-50 year old films.

Am I wrong?

No, not wrong, but it only looks that way because Netflix doesn't offer things they don't have for sale. Imagine being a fan of the Walking Dead for example, going on Netflix and seeing that the last season wasn't available to stream, but hey, you can buy it right now if you don't want to wait -- for this much money. Netflix doesn't do that so you don't make the obvious connection that they are incomplete when they offer for sale something they don't have the rights to give you for free.

Prime also doesn't "disappear" things like Netflix does; Netflix constantly cycles through what they have available. Things become available and leave Netflix all of the time. But on Amazon if you watched, say, Schindlers List for free (because it was available), and then a few months later they lost the rights, the next time you looked at Schinlders List it would only be available to buy.

Amazon Instant Video is EVERYTHING available through Amazon, for sale or through Prime. Amazon Prime Video is everything available for free. Amazon Originals though are never pay to watch (except the prime sub, which is the same as a netflix sub in cost).

This might sound like gibberish. Sorry if it does.
