  • The drawback of digital is you shoot too much because you can. Ditto still photographs, we all come back from holiday with a zillion images where once we'd have had 24. Real film makes you stop and think 'do I really want this image?' The trick is I suppose to know what you want and not rely on finding it later in edit. But then again, best to have too much than miss the one bit you find you need.

  • Guys, don't supercut it , make it into 2-3 hour episodes , let the things roll , we can skip something if we find it boring... But as we are watching james may make a sandwich on YT ,l.I think I am allowed to speak for all of us, we would like the longer less cut episodes even more ,more time occupied by tgt is fine in my book

  • All I wanna say is, we're watching sandwiches being made and richard hammond climbing on big ships cause we cant get enough footage of the three to watch, so 1000 hrs seems reasonable to have access to for the next month of clarkson hammond and mad dosage. Just saying

  • It's simple really the SR editor watches all three Camera clips at the same time with two other's , then like a live production he calls out which shots he wants when , time codes for each written down. Next and so on . Apparently someone didn't study mass production techniques !! Canadian's would've had it done in 2 wks !! Quit pulling the pud !! Get on with it !!

  • What I feel like I should say if people are wondering is this, the episode was probably finished months ago, but with the way the world is now there's nothing being produced so Amazon probably want their existing backlog to last as long as possible. That is probably why their other flagship series The Boys released weekly for the second season. My best guess is that after The Boys S2 wraps up they'll be a little break and then they'll announce TGT: Madagascar for probably near the end of the year.

  • To Andy Wilman; The popularity of Top Gear and now The Grand Tour is because of Clarkson, May, and Hammond, along with the production\direction of Wilman. The fans cannot get enough! But deep down we all know it can't last forever with those three. But Mr. Wilman needs to think about a comparable show with a similar chemistry that will appeal to these fans. Nothing will replace these three, but the fans need more.

But, you now have to understand that Amazon is going "green", it says they will zero emission by 2024: which to me means that Amazon is deliberately in the process of killing anything like The Grand Tour.
