^ 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.
