Not sure if this is a , but has anyone heard of this show yet?

Starts in January, I can't find much about it, other than the detroit bro's were on it. Filmed by the same people who did monster garage, its suppose to be similar, only filmed in the D.

I think you're right, I think.

Has the potential to be a cool show. I lol'd a bit at the pothole patcher. We could definitely put a few hundred thousand miles on that. Hell, throw it up on 24's and we might be able to get Tyrone and Latisha from the DOT to stay in it long enough to actually do some work.

Could put 'em to work on Orchard Lake rd. if the asphalt doesn't eat up those 24's first.

I did and was about to submit a thread on the topic when I did the re-post search.

Here is what I had written up....

Anyone watch this show tonight? It was the first show of the series and it seems to be a mix between monster garage and a charity case. I thought it looked like a decent show but I was HIGHLY disappointed. 2/3 of the show was how bad "detroit needs these guys to win, so they can "rebuid detroit""(the 5 builder guys who get 5K in tools). The other 1/3 was split between showing a what came across as a half assed build and portraying how "artistic" one of the brothers is.

Any other opinions?

That about sums it up, I know it was only 5 days but kind of a pile if you ask me, What a waste of a nice T. Just another Jesse James spin off.

The Discovery Channel says it likes Detroit's rundown aesthetic -- it makes a good backdrop for its new show "Motor City Motors."

The pilot for Monster Garage was lame too. I kinda hate the sob-story they keep playing about Detroit being so shitty, but I guess reality hurts.

Anyways, I watched it. Was a bit better than the manufactured arguments on American Chopper and the "I'm a badass, fuck off" attitude of Jesse James. The tool set they got was a bit more complete than the Snap-on set they'd give away on Monster Garage, as it included a welder and a chop-saw instead of just a $3k top box and a screwdriver set.

I'll give it a couple more episodes to step it up in the creativity department, but from what I've heard, it will do just that.
