(Thursday, September 11th, 2008) A new American Chopper tonight looks at a car show? Slightly off topic. Also there’s a new Smash Lab about being trapped in a boat. Let us guess, there’ll be airbags or foam involved and possibly a rocket-assisted grappling hook.
We keep forgetting to list Dragons Den, on the BBC. It’s basically “British Inventor”, and as such isn’t entirely Toolmonger-worthy, but worth checking out if you’re a fan of flop sweat and sales pitches.
All times are central.
