fk me, what a steaming pile of fairy boy wannabe z-list celebrities, posing as tough guys.

They throw colours around like lending each other panty liners, but pretend to be akin to Hells Angels.

Biker TV for non Bikers.

Flush it with Sons of Anarchy.

I'll be amazed if at least 3 of them aren't chockers up each other off camera.

You enjoyed it then? hehe

The colours thing is a bit concerning as some of these motorcycle clubs are territorial, was reading about a chap the other day who was wearing a Hells Angels fan t shirt, walked into a rival club bar unknowingly because he wanted to chat about the bikes outside and ended up dead in a pool of blood frown

Utter drivel.

The "prospect" who was looking after the "Ol' Ladys" trying to play the big man with a photographer who gets too close was just stupid, he got clupmed with a camera whilst the girl with the tattoos and big tits bottled the guy.

I gave up at that point.

Wasn't Discovery set up as a science channel?

There's now a dedicated Science channel (and it's quite good). Which could explain it.

Just watching this on sky+ is it real or not? Apparently the exec producer used to do wwf in the 90's so presuming not. It also appears the leader is married to a female police officer?!

Sounds great....

Drat, and I've been looking for more 'man tv' since I caught up to the point in Gold Rush where I started it, last time around... does that make sense.

Anyway, Gold Rush is good, even if the main group are REALLY frustrating to watch if you've got any sort of comunication or management skills.

True - wasn't it originally called The Learning Channel?

the discovery channel really is going down hill with the amount of crap reality tv type shows, really bad staged acting/hype with very little instructional knowledge.

gold rush, gold divers, auction hunters, auction kinds, american guns, sons of guns, a pattern is emerging.
look what they did to american chopper, it started as a custom bike show to a reality tv show with almost nothing about bikes in it.

wheeler dealers seems the same route, just mike spouting pish barely any cars being worked on.
