      I dont know, the second episode seemed rather boring compared to the first. I found myself skipping forward and was less entertained.

      That video they used of people pulling down the Lenin statue is where I lived in Eastern Ukraine. It is just an empty space now. I tell all my friends ''Lenin was here.''

      Good times.

      I feel like I am watching the end of the trio with this season. The Columbia episode was entertaining but full of homophobia. This dictators one is full of making light of issues refugees and the like are having to live through every day as a part of life. They have always been controversial but I’m wondering how a big company like Amazon can continue to cut checks for it.

      Meh. I thought the jokes were just stale, not particularly offensive.

      Yeah, they were still all predicated on the "being gay is somehow undesirable" though, so I can see why people would be offended/upset. 90% of the attempts at humor are super stale at this point. I stick around for the cinematography and the occasional moment of genuine camaraderie from the group. Also I like cars I guess.

      I'm only on episode three but god damn I love how much they're taking the piss out of the pearl-clutchers so far. It's more than they've ever done it in the past. Respect for Amazon for producing such a based series!!!

      I thought the Donkey f**king scene on episode two was just some sort of joke. Upon further investigation, it definitely is not a joke. TIL there is a culture of bestiality in Colombia and its considered A-OK.....

      Wasn't too impressed with the pickup episode. I don't really ever take their car advice seriously anyway but they all said barely anything about their trucks and spent a lot more time than even these three normally do making a mess, blowing up unnecessary amounts of stuff and just being general morons.

      Don't have a lot of faith that this show runs beyond Season 4, and that's only because they already announced it.

      I too was deeply offended that a segment of society was the butt of a joke. That is just toxic and humor has no place unless it is harmless to all.

      I think the show would be better if the hosts said nothing at all. Perhaps they could all nod or smirk if someone hiccups. As long as people with chronic hiccups aren’t offended.

      5 years ago, I would be. In 2019? Have you been paying attention? Kids smirking at a Native American was national news for a week.

      The whole “oh they make fun of everybody” thing is just a lame excuse. Is it really OK to say things that are offensive to a group, just because you say offensive things to lots of other groups? Is that really the slippery slope we choose to roll down?

      Either way it’s hard to deny that the Trio’s schtick isn’t getting stale. I really do enjoy the vehicle stuff and the cinematography is great. The challenges and travel can be a lot of fun when they aren’t mailing it in.

      I must have missed that reference in the last episode.

      Is this in response to the LBGTJeep? Then you might want to take your beef up with the LGBT online magazines that rank the top 'gay' cars for perpetuating stereotypes.

      I’m responding specifically to the people that are saying the LGBTQ community shouldn’t be offended, because the trio makes fun of everybody.

      I can’t personally say if that was offensive, because I’m not gay. Certainly lots of gay folks didn’t find it amusing, and have said so publicly. I’ll take them at their word that they were offended.

      I do think it was lame that they dragged that joke out for the entire episode. It wasn’t that funny to begin with, and there continued glee over the running gag was just eye rolly.

      Just my opinion.

      I actually tried to google the uproar of which you speak and it was dreadfully unfulfilling of a rant. Have you a non-social media (read: news) source to prop up this claim?

      No, I’ve just seen it trending on Twitter, where everything is overblown, both ways.

      This isn’t a huge cause for me or anything, I thought I’d add my opinion to the discussion that was taking place is all.

      I thought it was interesting since Will Young guested on the show previously.
