The Grand Tour

The Grand Tour: Episode 4 Social Media Reactions

Episode 4 of The Grand Tour was an interesting one for me. On one hand, seeing James’ head sticking out of his Poomobile was one of the most hilarious things I have seen all week. On the other hand, watching James pull in a bunch of construction/mining equipment seemed a bit forced. In fact, I’m getting that feeling a lot from TGT (more of an observation than complaint).

But enough about me; Episode 4 included a proper and exciting road test with a Porsche 911 GT3 RS and a BMW M4 GTS, a couple of lines from The American that actually made me chuckle and not glare at the screen, a new and improved way to smuggle people in cars, and of course, the highly publicized “enviro-mental” challenge where the boys had to rebuild Land Rover Discoveries with more “eco-friendly” body work.

Tony Hsieh

Cars, the Buffalo Bills, video games, comics, sandwiches, jelly beans, and the shooting star press; these are the things that Tony loves (in addition to his family, of course). When he's not spending his time writing tech reviews for, Tony puts his lifetime love of muscle cars to use on his 2015 Mustang GT. Tony's top three favorite cars are the 1973 Mustang Mach 1, Ferrari 458, and Aston Martin DBS.

  1. Episode 4 has to be the worst episode of any Top Gear / Grand Tour episode so far, apart from the Porsche GT3 bit. It went downhill from there and the eco-car segment almost made me stop watching.

    I really hope they can bring it back to basics, and stop doing the nonsensical scripted bits.

  2. Episode 4 was HILARIOUS!! My daughter and I laughed our arses off! If you didn’t get the overall joke making fun of “enviro-mentalists” complete delusion that we can somehow make cars out of something else besides what we do make cars out of to “save” the planet then god help you.

  3. Personally I thought episode 4 was hysterical, haven’t laughed so much in ages! Wasn’t keen on episode 2 but have loved all the others so far.

  4. I thought episode four was hilarious. I also think many people missed an important point: the amount of resources and energy consumed and pollution generated in the production of a new car; if your old car is not belching smoke everywhere, it’s less wasteful and harmful to the environment to keep it than rush out and buy these “eco-friendly” misnomers.
