Great show ruined by horrible audio
This is a really cool motorcycle/travel show with some amazing bikes and incredible scenery, but it's almost unwatchable due to the sound ... the music completely drowns out Norman's dialog 80% of the time. I thought it was funny that when he's riding with someone and talking to them, we get subtitles, but when he's just talking and the music is over-riding whatever he's saying ... no subtitles! Whoever mixed the audio for this series needs to be fired!

If you liked Long Way Round, you'll hate this.
Ugh. What a huge disappointment. Whereas Long Way Round was a series about a movie star and his humble approach to a hugely ambitious motorcycle adventure, Ride with Norman Reedus is a series about an uninteresting TV actor riding through sort-of-interesting, easy-to-access places. He doesn't have a single good observation about the places he's visiting. "Wow," is just about as clever as he gets. The commentary doesn't match the scenery (e.g., he's talking about Santa Cruz while showing images of Big Sur) and the best scenery is glossed over (e.g., we see about 20 seconds of Big Sur without hearing anything about it). It's the Cliff Notes for Dummies who Don't Want to Hear or See Anything Meaningful series for wannabe hipster motorcyclists. This is cringe-worthy, shallow stuff. Skip it. Please.

It just gets worse and worse. "Yeah, be well, Dude." is all Reedus can muster up to say to somebody who tells him a heart-rending story about his brother who dies in a wreck and who (inexplicably) is a huge fan. Please make it stop.

Also, everything that is said about the sound quality is spot on. WTF??? Do they have the original, digital files? No doubt. Why in the world wouldn't they spend the 10 hours it would take to re-master the sound?? Is it because they prefer to highlight the horrible soundtrack over the insipid dialog? Probably. And the sound track???? Good god. Make it stop. Make it stop!!!

Wish I could hear what they're saying.
It would be a cool show if I could hear what they were saying over the music.
It's really annoying.

Livin' the Life!
Man! Norma is livin' the life! Good for him! Really inspires me to take some road trips on my motorcycle.
I have to agree with some of the other reviews, sound needs to be remixed. The VO should never be buried in the mix like that, barely watchable. Just proves, you can have bad video with good sound, but not good footage with bad sound. Just doesn't work.

Awesome show! Bikes are cool, rides kick butt.
Bikes are cool, rides kick butt, but the sound quality sucks. Cannot hear Norman narrate as the mix is horrible. Music drowns out his voice. Fix the sound please.

It's getting better but....
When I first caught Season One you can tell that he and the crew were trying make a "No Reservations" but with motorcycles.

While Reedus is certainly friendly enough, the first season seemed hobbled by the producers who seemed to want to keep Reddus safe (after all he is the star of AMC's biggest show) but where Bourdain would have turned outhouse racing into something fun and lighthearted, Reedus just seems out of place.

His monologues at the end of each show were full of cliches and didn't really carry that much weight.

The second season seems a little better. I really liked the first show and the episode featuring Dave Chapple wisely resisted becoming a joke fest, letting Chapple drop his guard and you could get into both men's mind as they talked about culture and being on highly successful TV shows.

After than however the show sort of sinks back into the problems of the first season. The LA show, I watched about 15 minutes of because the people didn't interest me. We met a bike builder who talks about losing a friend to stunting on the highway, then we see them stunt riding on the highway.

We met some people who have been living off Joey Ramone's legacy for twenty years. Pfft.

Overall, I think I'm done with the show. I don't think I'll watch season 3.

Harley isn't the ONLY game in town!
GREAT show!! These bikes are beautiful! I would LOVE to ride a Zero SFX! I SO miss riding,as my husband can't do it anymore.Anyone wanna buy a really georgeous Harley? Just joking.It's promised to someone.But these bikes are amazing! I never realised how much was out there.He got wrecked 3x tho. 1st time, a PSHYCO "friend" made him wreck on PURPOSE!.The 2nd, an old lady dead stopped in front of him.The 3rd (with me on the back) wet leaves & speed involved.( going too fast-not drugs)! It was either hit the cyclone fence or the telephone pole.We chose the telephone pole.Just a few scratches, Thank God! Those were on his Triumph.He swore by them. That was 42 yrs ago.But watching this show REALLY makes me wanna ride again. Triumph, Harley, Zero, I don't care, just would LOVE to ride again.Every time I hear a bike go by, I wanna go again! It NEVER leaves you! It just gets in your blood.Thx Norman Reedus for this show.
