That's what a massive budget does, I guess...
Also, didn't the trio take most of the editing crew with them to Amazon?

That might explain a lot.. not sure on that one though.

New episode tomorrow!

Just finished watching S03E02, the first part of the Colombia special.
I do wonder what the truth is behind shots like these:



Sure looks like the guys themselves are driving on these dodgy bridges. But surely Amazon tested these before the guys got on it?

Also: YES, there are villages in Colombia that have sexual relationships with donkeys...
That was information I didn't even want to know, thanks Jeremy!!

I guess someone drives over before the guys do, and I suppose they also have a shitload of safety guys.
I don't know about how TGT works, but I've seen a reality show being taped, and it was not completely staged. They find something interesting, then get the camera's and show it again, pretending to react for the first time again.

The fact that we don't know what is staged and what's not is actually a good thing. I remember in the first season you could tell that EVERYTHING was scripted.

LOOK at this magnificent screenshot from S03E03

S03E04 certainly was amusing to watch and it wasn't a bad episode, but the shooting from their cars part was.. unnecessary and too obviously fake and scripted. Besides that it's a descent episode. Just skip the shooting bit. Looking forward to S03E05 this Friday!

I'm so glad S03E05 turned out to be much more like S03E01, I needed that after the last episode.

Gotta love their "special designed ice race track".



The bit with the Urus was great btw.

Love this shot of the Jim Clark bit:

Saw SE3E06 this morning.

There are some really neat shots of China. A lot of them quality for wallpaper material.





A train going through a building:



The bit with the drones fitted with flamethrowers was awesome.



That electronic car: the NIO EP9, looks and drives insane.



Gotta love the Chinese highway signs.



The cameras taking pictures constantly on all the roads are actually frightening.

Best quote of the episode



Really solid episode overall.
