American vs. Britaingreenspun.com : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread
Junkyard Wars have only been in the UK for a few weeks now. I used to watch the British version - Scrapheap Challenge. I think Junkyard Wars is so much better because you guys built better things. I watched a British version and they had to build a bike that lapped a course about 20 times - WHAT IS THE FUN IN THAT?!?!?!?! The other day I watched Junkyard where they built offroad buggies - that was so great. Keep up the good show ideas!

Actually...some of the challenges on the American Version originated from the U.k. Version....I didn't see the bike one..but it does sound lame. However they had some pretty cool challenges as well

I must admit the uK version is a little naff and I'm from the UK! Bring back JYW and George, or send George over to the UK to host Scrap Heap Challenge. PLEASE!!!
