Could have been a great show.
Overall feels and sounds like a good idea that never follows through.
Decent idea, mediocre editing and camera work, trash "vs supercar" idea that ruins the show. Ends up just being a Monster Garage ripoff that limits competition that struggled to even have 8 episodes of challenges. Literally every episode is "get rid of weight."

The obvious planted cars and off camera help the teams get destroys any sense of reality as well. No scrap yard has every engine in perfect working order. Look at the motorcycle tires on the hill climb before then on race day. Someone magically found 2 brand new dirt tires that fit bullet bike wheels? When it's obviously scripted and STILL mind numbingly boring that's a failure of epic proportions.

Ralph constantly coming in and questioning everything feels fake as heck too. You've been standing 20 feet away all day and suddenly come in asking what's going on? He seems nice enough but his acting is terrible. On that note Shane Lynch's acting is laughably horrible and actually worth the watch just to laugh at how bad it is.

Treat the viewers with more intelligence than your average Boyzone fan cause this is tripe. After 3 episodes I literally skipped to the challenge, then skipped through to the race for the whole rest of the series. Ralph and Shane's banter is just cringeworthy.

Only worth watching to laugh at how bad it is.

Sad copy of Junk Yard Wars
Another kind of ok copy of Junk Yard War's if you can't find anything else to watch., but, why not just show the truth then show us the back ground crew coming in to help and really build everything??? When did they put the dirt tires on the bikes in EP-3? Like is it just me., so ok., we need to build a hill climber., hey ok let's make a air boat with tank tracks powered by a steam train engine sure we got 8 hours we can do it lol :)

This reality show isn't real enough for me.
I noticed one reviewer talk about how this is a high iq show. I completely and utterly disagree. I watched the first episode and had to struggle to get through that. No it doesn't have any of the fighting or arguing that many reality shows have and that's good. But it still has obviously fake and crafted drama. The cars are obvious plants. The scripting and acting are absolutely terrible. When I saw this show existed I was so excited by the concept. But the poor execution and ridiculous over the top acting killed it for me. This reality show just wasn't real enough for me

This is a great sleep aid.
If total absurdity makes you sleepy, you won't be conscience very long watching this. I guess this is what replaced Top Gear which was atleast mildly amusing in moderation and somewhat realistic. This show is total "bum wine" with a shot of rubbing alcohol for a brain numbing experience that will make you ask yourself,"what was I thinking in watching this?".

Entertaining show so far
This is an entertaining show, at least the three episodes I have seen. I did laugh a little bit when they tried their hand at 4 wheeling. I guess that is one thing us Americans have gotten right. They "climbed" a tiny hill that any run of the mill 4 x 4 could have done. lol! Good show anyways though.

Horrible
This is like watching home movies of someones 5 year old girl learning to drive a UTV. I can't believe someone would actually produce this.

To intelligent for some
This is great TV, It is not full of the typical Americans style fighting and crying with the over the top immature crashing about that is only really watched by drama kids. This is good down to earth viewing that has a higher IQ viewer watching it. Entertaining and fun. It is realistic and you can see it is NOT set up to make a drama out of it. Looking forward to the next series. Well done Amazon for letting this be seen in the USA for us more intelligent people.

uhh???
Only watched episode 2... that was enough... supposed to be all scrap and they gut the BMW down to nothing and then casually "find" a brand new full roll cage??? Because obviously brand new powdercoated roll cages are often laying around scrap yards.
