Default WTF is on TV these days...

Man, I just watched an episode of "Texas Car Wars" last night; what a POS of a show (Jeez, i must have been bored!)!

If that's what qualifies for a TV show now, they should make a show about this forum.. at least it would be somewhat educational!

Various car shops (apparently in Austin area) go to JY auctions and bid on POS cars, try to fix for min $$$, and flip them. Only one problem; none of these guys are very good at fixing cars!!

Doesn't give car guys a very good name; these guys are dumb!

Other than sports I find myself watching stuff I've downloded over the years. Over the past year I've logged alot of time watching;
1) Ozzie and Harriet
2) Dangerman (or Secret Agent, same show)
3) The Rebel
4)Guns of Will Sonnet

and the wife (who does watch some current stuff) is presently watching 3 to 4 episodes of 'The Waltons' a week.

All of these old shows - I think - are better than the junk that is produced today. The Batchelor (ette)? America's Got Talent? Parenthood?
Pass me a big barf bucket.

*passes bucket*

This is why I refuse to pay for cable nothing I actually like watching is ever on when I can watch it. And when I had pvr I used it for toopy and binoo or other shows for my daughter. Everything can be downloaded now so why bother right

I haven't had pay TV for about 2 years now and don't miss it. I have an Air antenna and get about 18 digital channels, 4 of which are HD (picture and sound).

As for those num-nuts that are flipping junk cars to people that really can't afford to buy a car, it's sick that they would show that crap. I'm sure they are making more money from the show than the cars they stick people with.

I watch about 4 different shows per week on TV. Sad that my wife has to sit in front of it all week long.

sounds like they took the concept of a show from the UK (wheeler dealers) which is a shame, because in the UK it's actually a pretty good show, and you can actually learn a few tips and tricks for your own car/repairs etc...

but pretty much, all TV/reality shows are just ****...
there are some good shows out there, but they're the funnyish type of sitcom things....when you run out of good old shows to watch...
