    It's been confirmed that the Jeremy, Richard, and James, will star in a new show, that is definitely not Topgear, on Amazon Prime. Although there are still many questions up in the air, it is still nice to see the three hosts we are all familiar with having their own show again. Let's just hope Clarkson doesn't mess it up. How do you feel about the show being on Amazon Prime? Do you think it will be worth the fees that it comes with? This thread is for any news and discussion on the new show. [​IMG]

    As I may have said elsewhere, this is great news for me. I don't have Amazon Prime, so it means that I'm not paying that irritating glob of hedgehog barf Richard Hammond's salary - whereas had they gone to Netflix I would have been and I might have had to cancel it.

    So hurrah.

    They've got Andy Wilman on board too, so if you've enjoyed watching the same tired old crap for the last 6 years with high points few and far between and you're an Amazon Prime customer, you're in luck.

    'Shock Deal'

    In what way is it a shock? We knew the three of them had left the BBC vis a vi the car-themed entertainment show. They could only look elsewhere.

    I suppose it's shocking they didn't go to Netflix.

    Wonder if Richard Porter (Sniff Petrol and Top Gear script writer) will be going with them, or whether he'll stick with the BBC?

    I was hoping that it would be on Netflix, Amazon Prime isn't available here in Australia.

    Of course you'll be able to watch them. We're in 2015 nothing that you want to watch is unreachable.

    Well, Jeremy just answered that question on Twitter;

    I personally think that maybe Foxtel will get the rights to be the Australian broadcaster. Channel wise? Maybe FOX8, A&E or FX. I also can't see it being on Discovery due to Fifth Gear.

    Either that, or Amazon Prime becomes available in Australia (which I hope doesn't happen, I don't want to pay to watch just one show).

    Hopefully it comes to free-to-air TV as well.

    36 episodes? They'll run out of ideas after about 4 (and that's being generous.)

    I see great potential in this show. They did a really great performance with Clarkson, Hammon & May Live Show in Australia.

    Though the potential name of "Gear Knobs" is silly.

    ...Gear Knobs? That possibly can't be the name they are going with. It's probably a misdirection, a troll move to confuse The Interwebz.

    Guessed what was this before reading, he hosted this several times before If I recall.

    Also with that budget, If I was a Caravan in America I'd be scared.
