    Mexicanicos

    New show on the Motor Trend TV channel.
    Bad.
    Opinion.

    Just can't deal with the Mexican version of a Bruce Lee movie.
    Most likely done is Spanish...but dubbed...and i sounds just like a Bruce Lee movie
    Especially when you try to get your head around verbiage, lips, and arm waving.

    Silly, almost.

    Again, opinion.

    Turning it off.

    I watched it for about 10 minutes before turning it off. It reminded me of the Godzilla movies from the late 50’s where the dubbing was ridiculous... lips weren’t moving but the person kept speaking.
    MT can do lots better than this show.

    So much garbage on TV anymore we only watch 3 to 4 channels out of 200! Problem here is, we live in the hills and too far from the cities to receive over the air signals or we would drop the satellite connection. Where do they get some of these people from, best of all. where do they get an audience to watch them?!

    With so many networks and TV/web channels things can geton and play today that viewing number would have called and abysmal failurewhen there was only the three networks and PBS. I’ve seen things declared a success with only 2-3 million viewers whichequals less than 1% of the nation.

    I usually don't watch much TV -- too much garbage. I figure if I have time to be watching TV, I have time to do something productive, like turn wrenches.

    Only a couple shows on MT worth watching, IMHO. I do watch a lot of the AHC programming. SWMBO calls it "The Nazi Channel".

    I don't have cable or a dish for the reason 90% of the time the TV is off as I sleep, go to work, or do things I want/need around home. So over the air gives me almost everything I want. And for those things on cable, buy the dvd set or download. Easier and cheaper than 100-200 bucks a month.

    I only have Netflix and Amazon, there are plenty of decent shows on both and I can find a ton of documentaries on them.

    Seems like the new shows are for the small brains. Can't focus with short attention span and stupid stuff is funny to them. They don't make the programs that the older paying generation would like to see. But, then, seeing some of the old shows we used to watch, makes you wonder how we actually enjoyed them.
