    They seem to be aiming them at the American market, where the shows are more for fun, than informative, like Misfit Garage, and Fast & Loud, which you mentioned.
    They're more like soap operas than car shows.

    Garbage ...ED China was the only reason to watch that show !
    Not interested ..Same with BBC's highly Edited and Censored Version of Top Gear and that ginger idiot millionaire Chris Evans
    Zero appeal to me whatsoever !!
    The Grand Tour on " a-m-a-z-o-n " is light years ahead and the best car show there is with plenty of comedy and serious well informed news [ Sorry even the forum is trying to censor me ,lol's ]
    much more intresting than the nonsense the BBC offers no wonder their ratings have flopped nobody is in the least bit interested anymore !! .

    I used to like Wheeler Dealers when it was on normal tele

    enjoyed fast n load when they were in the original garage, started to lose interest in it once they sacked 2 of the main mechanics

    The Grand Tour is ok but still not as good as when in there Top Gear prime. I was bad laughing at the Farmkhana in the recent GT

    ED China will do better there is a million other Mike Brewer's and i am sure ED China will be on our screens again sometime soon with an even better show , we wait and see what is coming ..
    Farmkhana indeed was Epic and the Out takes were really funny classic old school Top Gear style which a lot of The Grand Tour has been like that and Farmkhana kinda was a poke @ BBC And their Censorship but that is just my opinion ,
    The Grand Tour ALREADY is Half-way thro' Season 2 i can not wait for friday to see the next episode i kinda wish they would do more episodes per season
    but hopefully that idea might be on the cards eventually .
    i am not in the least bit interested in new reboot Wheeler dealers and i doubt it will be even half as successful as The Grand Tour
    And sure the old Wheeler Dealers and old classic Top Gear is probably still worth watching ...at least until ED returns with something bigger and better .

    FWIW, "Ant" is like Edd China a few years ago - good luck to him with the opportunity anyway! - but I agree that Edd's earlier major rejuvenations of old vehicles were far more in-depth and "useful". This series is more about "find, improve and replace" the bits already fitted to the base vehicles :(
