And the one gimmick I would like to see garners nothing but jeers.  That gimmick being... vegetarian! Why can't there be a vegetarian episode of Chopped or Eat Street?  

It's easy to entice most anyone to eat bacon or cookies.  But enticing them to eat their vegetables?  Now THAT is a challenge, and several cooks fail at it.  Why can't the media show vegetarian food as sexy, indulgent, and something you crave?

man, reddit pretty much guessed all of the Westworld plot before half the season was over. But hey, as far as I'm concerned, that's a good thing. It means your plot makes sense/can be followed.
And having twists for twists sake leads down a pretty dark road. Very hype for final episode of the season, all the Westworld hype is totally justified.

I've been meaning to check it out, but I'm admittedly not all that enthused. The last few seasons (at least) of TP involving the same presenters seemed to be more about said presenters then the cars themselves. If GT is anything like that... meh.

^ Uh..... well.....yeah, it is A LOT like that.

The second episode has a huge chunk of film with no cars, until Clarkson literally says they need to find a getaway car because "this is supposed to be a motoring show."

And their replacement for The Stig is a nice idea, but just not the same and not as good.

In general, though, I LOVE The Grand Tour.  It's funny and a blast to watch.

  It's a blast to watch.

This just sent me down an extended period of introspection on whether or not something needs to be participatory (as opposed to passively observational) in order for me to have "a blast" doing it

I guess I'd classify MST3K as "a blast" to watch (sometimes), but a lot of its genius exists in how it makes its audience FEEL like it's participating in all that shit talking along with the bots
