American Chopper: OCC Is Back On CMT

I guess television hasn’t had enough of the Teutuls. Not long after American Chopper was canceled, here comes Orange County Choppers on CMT, Country Music Television. (Discovery/TLC owns the American Chopper name.)

From all appearances, this is the exact same show, with fake builds, stupid pranks, lots of bellowing, and that same idiot designer. The only difference is that Paulie seems to have had the good sense to keep PJD out of this nonsense. (I’m assuming he was asked, of course.)

So since this is no longer technically American Chopper. I need a new logo.

Um, I going to have to work on that.

For the record, this seems to be their real logo:

See that dopey-looking dragon bike? We’ll get back to it.

As I said, this seems like the exact same show. While I did not (and will not) watch the first episode, I did see clips and previews online. What did I see? Jason smashing a door down and grinning like a mental patient at his dragon drawing. In fact, someone seems to think so highly of that doofus that when I clicked on show info I saw this:

And that picture is enough for me. Someone seems to think that people like him, yet all the analytics I see show that people search for “Jason Pohl idiot,” “Jason Pohl fired,” and “Jason Pohl asshole” far more than “Jason Pohl funny” (zero searches) and “Jason Pohl genius” (zero searches.)

Remember, he is nothing more than a cartoonist. How many times did Rick Petko say that his designs were unrealistic? More than once Mike Ammirati had to redesign Pohl’s plans because they were unworkable. And this dragon bike? I’m sure it was cool when I was 13.  Looks totally uncomfortable to ride. So let’s see what he says for himself in his online bio:

jpocc4“Pohlie?” He really makes this easy, doesn’t he?

Um, that’s not a prank, Pohlie. It is impossible to play a joke on an inanimate object.

No, your most annoying habit is being a kiss-ass toadie to Paul Senior.

Anyway, if you miss American Chopper I really do recommend that you watch this show. You won’t see PJD or Paulie, Vinnie or Cody, and surely not Mikey, but you will see Paul Sr, the real train wreck of the show in the first place. Will I follow the show? Will I do weekly recaps? Nope, but I will check in from time to time, when I’m feeling in need of something less painful than a root canal, but worse than a splinter in the eyeball.

Sneak Peek of the Week of November 17th, 2013

What the what now? Say it so, Paul Teutul Sr!

teutul return

Yeah, believe it or not, Paul Teutul and OCC are back on TV, on CMT. Don’t call them American Chopper- Discovery owns that. So- for at least, and maybe only one week, the American Orange County Choppers Weekly Rundown returns to bmj2k.com this Tuesday in it’s regular slot.

Also this week, the Caped Crusader, Batkid, takes center stage. We’ll see a bizarre Popeye commercial in the Late Night Movie house. Allan Keyes has a look at some TV commercials too, and we’ll see how awesome 1983 video games really were. Or were not. Look for us at the usual place, bmj2k.com.
