American Chopper

Caught American Chopper on Discovery Channel last night. OK, so I'm not exactly in the demographic group they might be hoping to attrack. So what! Who cares! Truth be told the program works on three levels: (1) they build the most outrageously macho choppers ever. (Maybe my brother's life-long love of bikes has rubbed off a little on me.) (2) being a social science major, I love watching the interplay between Paul, Sr. and Paul, Jr. Watch Sr. roar like an old lion defending his turf! Watch Jr. gripe, placate and generally try to appease him! Watch the rest of the guys hide behind various parts snickering and trying not to let on how entertaining it all is! Watch tempers mount, things being thrown, doors being slammed! Should be required watching for every father/son! Last but not least: (3) As a native easterner who became a westerner at age 20, it's always fun to re-vist the place, feel a bit homesick and hear those great New York accents.

Mom, You don't get enough father/son bickering at home, so now you have to watch it on TV!
