Great show but maybe not 'cutesy" enough for the producers. He had a great way of explaining repairs. Good thing we can catch him on youtube.

I also found the show to be very informative and one of the best on Velocity.

When the show moved from UK to SoCal I thought it lost a lot of its charm. Now with Edd gone the program has disappeared like the Cheshire Cat. Grand Tour will be back next season and, then, we always have the car shows that feature yelling characters and ridiculous artificial deadlines. Maybe Frannie and Heidi will make the small screen.

Yelling and being ridiculous seem to be in vogue, hence the popularity of "reality" shows. Not much teaching/learning going on; just drama....

Gotta have the tattoos and facial piercing. Notice the latest issue of the Registry and how the future is in the hands of page 14? :(

You're right Vic, tattoos, piercings, spiked hair and gaping holes in the ear lobes.

Sage words of the 2016 Nobel Prize in Literature.

Come gather around people
Wherever you roam
And admit that the waters
Around you have grown
And accept it that soon
You'll be drenched to the bone
And if your breath to you is worth saving
Then you better start swimming or you'll sink like a stone
For the times they are a-changing

Come writers and critics
Who prophesize with your pen
And keep your eyes wide
The chance won't come again
And don't speak too soon
For the wheel's still in spin
And there's no telling who that it's naming
For the loser now will be later to win
Cause the times they are a-changing

Come senators, congressmen
Please heed the call
Don't stand in the doorway
Don't block up the hall
For he that gets hurt
Will be he who has stalled
There's the battle outside raging
It'll soon shake your windows and rattle your walls
For the times they are a-changing

Come mothers and fathers
Throughout the land
And don't criticize
What you can't understand
Your sons and your daughters
Are beyond your command
Your old road is rapidly aging
Please get out of the new one if you can't lend your hand
Cause the times they are a-changing

The line it is drawn
The curse it is cast
The slowest now
Will later be fast
As the present now
Will later be past
The order is rapidly fading
And the first one now will later be last
Cause the times they are a-changing

Songwriters: Bob Dylan

The Times They Are A-Changin' lyrics © Bob Dylan Music Co.

And just for the record, all the shows are fake. If you're watching it on TV it's fake, if it's some dude on youtube it's probably real. We've had two offers to shoot a pilot for a show, the answer is no.
The reason that "Reality" shows have blown up over the last decade is because the networks can now higher non-union actors, which are way way cheaper, hence it's reality, but it's fake.

Maybe, but we might start ragging on your tatoos instead, if any :wink:
