The original American Choppers was an outstanding show which focused on creating custom motorcycles and displayed a vibrant family dynamic. The creative process was fascinating to watch and the actual machine shop work always interesting. Unfortunately, this version concentrates on the feud between father and son, with their competing shops the center of the turmoil. The arguments and disagreements in the first series have become pure soap opera reality junk. This is Kendra On Top and Cutting It In the ATL with motorcycles parked in the background. It is unpleasant to watch this nastiness and not at all interesting. In fact, it's a downright painful program now and I avoid it at all costs.
