The Grand Tour: A Scandi Flick was released on Friday on Prime Video. There has been a huge amount of press in the run up to the long-waited episode and now fans have finally been able to see it, many are taking to social media with their take on it.
One Twitter user, @FawnAtom, commented that they thought it was scripted. Andy Wilman, the executive producer of the show, recently described the show as a “very loose” level of planning. This user clearly did not believe this.
Whilst some fans are sceptical about the show being scripted, others were quick to hit back, including user @RPJD97, who replied saying: “You think James sliding into a wall and breaking his ribs was faked?”
Another user was full of praise for the show, suggesting that the team should make the shows longer and release bloopers, which we don’t think anyone would complain about.
Great episode. But since they are so rare these days, you should make them longer. And release some bloopers/behind the scenes material. Bet you got hours of them…

Another big part of the show was James May’s awful crash where his Mitsubishi EVO collided with a tunnel wall, leaving him with a broken rib. May then later had a second accident with the car, where it became submerged in icy water. Some EVO fans are questioning whether it is worth the watch or too painful.
Anyone who watched, should a massive Evo fan watch this episode or is it going to be a painful experience?

Another EVO fan responded saying:
“It’s painful but remarkable at the same time”.
Another couple of fans said: “Expect pain.” and “Pain, lots of pain but worth it.”
Absolutely awesome guys! Definitely one of my favourites so far, haven't laughed that much in ages! Thank you!
