Getting the Chevy stuck in a rut and using it as the base of a bridge didn't seem too scripted?!
Maybe it was because the fear was real on Hammonds face, or maybe it was because my angus was puckered at the thought of crossing the bridge, but I honestly laughed a snorty sort of laugh when Clarkson broke through on the radio with The Three Billy Goats Gruff
Oh, and Pickup Trump lol
I enjoyed the Columbia trip, good stuff
Germans are white people. Look up #84 on the list of things white people like: Gear. Lots of Gear. We even have gear farkles over here. -Atomicalex
Upon my word I have had as much excitement on a car as in the air, especially since the R.F.C. have had women drivers. -James Byford McCudden
I liked Columbia. Felt a bit low energy compared to past trips but I suppose that’s to be expected as the trio gets older.
Good mix of vehicles.
fwiw I, too, felt the Over-the-truck-bridge felt REALLY contrived, especially considering they just turned around on the other side.
I'd guess it's a lot cheaper than visiting places like Patagonia, I'd be worried about kidnap gangs or crimes of opportunity though. They had security for sure, Amazon wouldn't risk that without some thought.

S2 does make me want to visit Columbia. And see those hippos.
Also, a dealer here in Seattle had a Panda like that FS last year. The 4wd system was designed/built by Steyr, IIRC, and they are quite tough. Quirky little car, kind of a mini version of a Golf Country.
(I've decided a Golf Country with a 1.9 TD motor is my future BajaXL car.)
So I guess what I'm wondering is if the 2 part special dropping all at once means there isn't going to be a new episode this Friday.
I got a few good hearty laughs out of the Colombia special, but you can definitely tell the boys are getting up there. They signed on for S4 but I get the feeling that'll be the last hurrah. Clarkson will be 59 soon and May isn't far behind. Hammond at this point is held together with bubblegum and tissue paper. I don't see them pushing deep into their 60s doing this sort of tour the world travelling for a majority of the year.

I've never said this before about any of the GT or TG specials. Any.
