    Awesome. I don't think I have that channel (U-Verse) but I'd much rather watch them than OCC/Paul Jr. Designs at this point

    Potato and pen.
    You won't have to worry about that now. AMERICAN CHOPPER's all done. Final episode aired and it's kaput.

    Check the v-force website - the press release listed 5-7 other channels airing the show. It's posted as an image so I can't cut & paste and I'm too lazy to transcribe...:D

    I checked. I scanned and U-Verse doesn't have it listed in the program guide, so its not on any of the channels airing it yet. :(

    Wonder if it'll be any good. TLC should look into picking it up, now that they have room.

    I'm on Comcast in the SFO Bay Area and it's not showing up here at all. Anyone know if it's gonna be aired around here? I sure don't see it on the list.

    It was wowerifically bad. Terrible production, from the bad photography, to the terrible voiceovers, to the porn music, I could find nothing redeeming about this show, except for maybe the blonde chick and she was only on for about 30s.

    Definate :thumbsdown: from me.

    I figured it had to be pretty weak if TLC didn't try and squeeze some more cash out of the franchise. I guess it's really over. I'd still love to see an episode though. Is it basically Vinnie getting on Cody's case for being a slacker? Hmmm... If so, sounds kinda familiar... :p

    I haven't seen worse production values in quite a long time.

    sucked bad. Was barely watchable at 2x speed. Vinnie hasn't missed a meal since leaving OCC. That kid is a load.

    From what I could glean at 2x, there are 3 pairs of builders. 1 pair on the west coast, 1 pair in Florida and the aforementioned Skipper and his little buddy in the northeast.

    I stopped and went 1x went a nice looking blonde showed up in a motorcycle showroom to mount a bike with a skirt on. Not much to that. The "banter" that went on at that dealership was the worst supposed natural conversation I've ever seen.

    I 2x'd along until Vinnie showed up about halfway into the show. He stood there and didn't do much, more coached ad lib conversations. Then he and a couple of clowns went golfing, but not before they showed Vinnie stuffing his already very fat face. I think I saw Gilligan just once standing behind somebody else.

    I then deleted the recording.

    When I did watch it, everything about the production values was terrible, like community access TV. Vinnie has the chops to build bikes, but not the personality to carry a TV show.
