Thank God... Why are we all fascinated with watching this crap??? I watched one show and that was it for me.... I couldn't belive it was on for as long as it was...


Don't kid yourself.
The Young and the Restless, General Hospital, Days of Our Lives, The Bold and the Beautiful.
American Chopper was the male version of an old tradition.
This thing could have gone on for 20+ years.

I guess I’ll start watching Vinnie and Cody’s TV show. Link: http://www.vforcecustoms.com/

I bet Paul Jr. will be back on TV soon.


Wish that one was on E* as I really liked Vinnie's work. It would be nice to have him, Cody, Rick, and Nubbie together again.

There are many of us who enjoyed the show. But now that it's ben cancelled maybe you will be happier and won't be forced to watch another episode since the episode you watched was apparently so painful for you.

I will give that a try also. Too bad the network is not really up on giving any kind of decent guide data. PLus the times are already different than what is shown.


DirecTV, please don't make me have to go back to watching March Madness in standard Def! Oh, and the usual begging for AMC and BBC America. You are so close to actually being the HD Leader.

It looks like everything *but* the DirecTV iPhone app can find Throttle Junkies through search (my receiver, zap2it), and it even shows up in the iPhone app when I browse by channel. Weird.

I watched the first episode of Throttle Junkies. Pretty horrible. Bad production and beyond cheesy.

The show is 30 minutes long and Vinnie and Cody only have a small segment.

Doesn't really surprise me. And V-Force Customs has got to have one of the worst business websites I've seen in a long time.

I can't figure out why, it's still one of Discovery’s most popular programs.

And has been very entertaining this season with the Teutuls making up. I hope it gets picked up again

Seems to me they are at the very least setting up an annual build off, with this second one going forward. Wouldn't be surprised to see that continue at least. I'll say Paul Jr. has been very smart taking this time to expand into other areas while he is still getting the fame and TV money. I am sorry to see it go, again, but I have been finding myself skipping most of the OCC stuff and only watching PJD's parts of the show.

Ok, seems this is old news, but I didn't see it on here. The episode that aired last week was the end of the series.

Sr. is suing Jr. for a million dollars and wants to force him to sell his shares in the company.

Oh no!

Paul, you do realize that that post was from almost 3 years ago, right?

I'm sure Directv can't wait to get their hands on your unit.

Try this link:

After ten years, Discovery Channel is ending American Chopper.
The Teutuls are going to build their final bikes on the network next month. One of Discovery’s most popular programs, American Chopper helped pioneer the “docusoap” reality genre and inspired a surge of gear-head shows. Chopper‘s run will conclude with the previously announced four-way bike build-off special titled The Revenge airing live from Las Vegas on Dec. 11.
“After 10 years and 233 episodes of incredible, riveting reality television, American Chopper will be ending its run,” says Eileen O’Neill, group president, Discovery and TLC Networks.
Given the show’s on-again, off-again history, one has to wonder: Is this really the end? Could American Chopper rise again in a year or two?
“American Chopper was cancelled before and we came back even stronger,” Piligian says. “It’s been a resilient, powerful show. Right now they’re telling me it’s cancelled. I can only comment: ‘Who knows what the future holds.’”

Or you could try the link in post #49 that resurrected the thread, no?

I know sometimes when a thread gets resurrected, I don't always notice the dates. Most of the time I do, but not always. Unless it's a thread I recognize :)

Yeah, I've noticed a few resurrected threads over the years that I thought were new and wondered. When the heck did I post in that? I don't remember saying that, or who the heck has been using my user name and password :lol::lol:

Thought the same thing myself. Senior did not make Vinny successful or famous. It was his own talents that made him successful and the show made him famous neither can be claimed by Paul Sr. I think that was a rare glimpse of Paul Sr in completely unedited form. Sure Sr. made the show famous with his steroid induced rages but his true character came out in that scene. Why Vinnie ever agreed to even meet the SOB I will never know. Anyone else cringe a little when Sr also encouraged the making of the booklet he sent to Jessie? If he really cared about Paul Jr he would not continue to bash him every chance he gets. Just a shame. I actually liked the show but agree that it has run its course.
