Red Green As Co-Host...Would Be Great!!!!greenspun.com : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread
For any new NA shows it would be great to have Red Green (Steve Smith) as the co-host. What do you folks think?

They sure use enough of the handymans secret weapon in junkyard wars. While your at it, fire George and have Bill take his place.
intresting... intresting indeed.

Only if the producers will create an all-canadian junkyard-wars for him to co-host.

I think Red Green would be great. He his funniest guy I've ever seen and he would put Junkyard Wars over the top!

Red Green, he's to wound up and goofy. I do love the red green show, but If you think George is to comedic.....just watch what Red Green would do. All the serious build side would be overshadowed by the Red Green duh factor.

Want american hosts: Tom and Ray (aka: Click and Clack) from Car Talk (the radio show on NPR). Great sarcasm, and they would understand what was going on. No calling an air compressor tank a propane tank one episode, and a water heater in a later one...

Red Green is the father of Junk yard creations. It would only be fitting that he were to host an all canadian Junkyard War. Even better yet, have the war between his cast members, they would really liven things up with great humor and originality.

Steve Smith would turn it into a comedy show. Yes there is room for lots of humour, but I'm afraid that nobody could take Red Green seriously enough to actually get the educations parts!
I've only heard Car Talk once or twice (I'm in the wrong country!), but my first thought is that they would be perfect.

i don't think that steve smith would do the junkyard show even though he would be perfict.... how about that guy from tim allens show home improvment. that al guy...? richard something.

I like all of the above, but Mr. Bean would be my top choice. I can see him poking around behind the teams, never saying a word(which seems to be everyones beef with the current co-hosts) and the machines falling apart behind him as he goes along. He would be big fun on contest day too. After thinking about it for a while though, the show is about education, and too much camera time away from the teams and the drawings would take some of that flavor away. People with good intelligence will think up their own jokes as the show goes along, and the ones with no imagination will likely miss the punch lines of the ones being done on the show, no matter who is doing the talking. A different co-host for each show would be a good way to keep things intresting, get air time for whoever is co-hosting, and give the message board fans plenty to talk about as well. It would also draw new viewers loyal to each new co-host.

I just about fell off my chair... not that I want anyone from the show to loose their job but the idea was an revilation that wouldn't just go away.
I wonder if a guy could even get the producers to watch a Red Green show so that they would have a clue about what you we all are talking about.
One has to admit the idea has merrit... in a sick Junkyard Wars kind of way.
Any persons interested in putting there name on a Canadian team?

That be cool but I don't think that he would gp fpr the Idea

I agree- Red Green would be great as a contestant. How's this for the perfect team: Red Green - Captain The Major (now Colonel) from the Brothers in Arms (forgotten his name) Bowser Munsen and the expert: the wired guy from the rocketry challenge

As much as I enjoy the Red Gren Show- and I do- I have to side with those that think it might be a bit too much humor for JYW. Rowan Atkinson (Mister Bean), on the other hand, is just the fellow to get it right. He grew up on a farm and has a keen interest for all things mechanical and fast cars in particular. Seems to me he's even driven a Mini whilst perched on a chair roped to the roof. For the American shows, Richard Karn is your man.

Who the Hell is Red Green?

Red Green is the host of a rather odd, but good TV show that is filmed and produced in Canada, it is shown on many PBS stations throughout the US.
