I had never heard of Kidd before and I still ended up in tears over that segment, really good stuff and a great tribute.
I also agree on the new trio, they get way too much crap thrown their way simply because they aren't Clarkson, Hammond and May. The old guys perfected their show over two decades yet some people seem to think that Harris&co should be just as good right out of the gate which is obviously BS, they do make a great show and it's only getting better for each season imo.
I saw it more as a show&tell of how different the cars were rather than a slight against electric cars as it was simply a challange to see who could get to the destination with whatever charge they had left. They've done the exact same thing with petrol cars in the past where they've gotten X amount of fuel and not been allowed to top up.
