My parents and I used to watch the original American Choppers series. You know, the one where Sr and Jr worked in the same building? I'll admit that the constant arguing was ridiculous at times but I honestly don't think it was unrealistic. Maybe they embellished it but I truly believe that they acted this way off camera.
Aside from Sr and Jr going at each other every episode, I enjoyed watching Mikey and the other guys working at the shop. They all seemed like really cool guys and enjoyed designing bikes.
Now, what went wrong with this new series? For starters, they really pushed it with the Sr/Jr dynamic. Everything in this new series was about Jr starting his own business and competing with his father. It gets old really quickly and the bikes take a huge backseat. At least the original series was always about the bikes in the end.
