    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Old thread but the news is "new" once again. Cancelled for a second time.

    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:

    BTW any of you watch last nights episode? My thought was why

    is Senior being such a jerk to Vinny?

    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.
