Sub-Par American versiongreenspun.com : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread
An Americanized show would be sub-par. We constantly think that we know the best answer, and our entertainmet is recycled. We are stuck in a loop that proves we have no attention spans and cannot be introduced to anything new or foriegn without feeling the urge to turn it into something familiar.

I agree, an Americanized show would be very sub-par. Plus, an American version would have humorless and brainless Barbi & Ken hosts. And, the teams would probably have to dodge 'project threatening' obstacles during their construction time dreamt up by some juvenile entertainment exec.

My God, British are the biggest racist twits I have ever seen.

Junkyard Wars is NOT a feature of VH1 or E!, and it should NOT bear the markings of such lousy vaudeville production. Yes, I know money talks and bullshit walks, but I seriously believe that Junkyard Wars is a GOOD educational show for kids---IF it's not turned into one of those bastard shows that feature "Survivor" teams who aren't actually "surviving" anything, because the mechanical designs were SCRIPTED from the outset.
