tv2nite.jpg(Wednesday, August 30th, 2006) A good night of TV from Discovery and Speed. Again we get 6 episodes of How It’s Made on two networks.

    Unique Whips…Eh? I havent been able to get into it so much. It’s more geared towards watching the owner yell at people and pimping whatever the supplier of the week is. That goes for a lot of shows, though. I’d like build or bust a lot more if they didnt spend so much time giving the builder shit. And don’t even get me started on American Chopper.

  2. Sean O'Hara says:

    lol, I’m gonna have to go with you there Peter. But I will say that watching Unique Whips ia alot like watching a train wreck. It bad, but you can’t look away.

    But anything is better than Coddington’s shop. That guy makes me mad just watching him. Any guy dumb enough to throw away, Jessie James, Chip Foose and Charley is gotta be a moron, at least in MHO. 😉

  3. Nick Carter says:

    Yeah, OCC set the template for the shows and now it seems you can’t have one without yelling…Coddington must be the worst boss ever – he never communicates or gives his guys the resources they need to finish a job – and then they quit.
    That is why I loved Southern Steel – a minimum of yelling and what looked like a pleasant work experience.

  4. PeterP says:


    Are there any other good shows out there that don’t have extra drama/stupid gimmicks (I’m looking at you, Overhauling)/etc.?

  5. Nick Carter says:

    Hey, anyone else notice the product placement in the Earthquake Machine episode of Mythbusters?

    There is no way Grant Imahara uses AOL to do internet searches, yet there he is using AOL to search for info on lava lamps…and the first ad at the break? AOL….
