I want my 20 mins back. I must be dumb too to think they might actually show engine building or car fabrication details of any kind when the first 19 minutes were totally retarded.

Discovery started like it was going to be a commercial replacement for channel 13 PBS with smart stuff to watch but it has become the complete opposite. It's the retard channel now.

Sadly, to broaden their audience they have created some inane drivel. This is the crap the average American likes.

Cheaply done shows. poor acting if you can call it that with very little spent to actually show something of value.

Since TV began 65 years ago there have been more bad programs than good.
Nothing new here....move along.

I'll admit it. I watch it. I also watch deadliest catch, duck dynasty, and swamp people.

Apparently your better then the average person?

STREET OUTLAWS delivered an average of 2.57 million viewers P2+ and claimed the #1 spot on cable TV among Men 25-54 and M18-49 delivery (excluding sports, behind only USA’s WWE Entertainment). STREET OUTLAWS was the #3 program in all of television on Monday evening (no exclusions, behind only USA’s WWE Entertainment and NBC’s American Ninja Warrior).

I kinda stopped watchin this year. Getting a little boring, and most car guys can tell its all fake and scripted. And I bet there a lot more faster cars in the US they just dont wanna be on tv

Agreed. Outlaw drag racing is as old as the hills.

BTW, on "street racing", driving down I95 to Hell (Lauderdale airport) yesterday, 2 idiots in a BMW and a Dodge something were racing on I95, weaving in and out, 110+ (I was going 80 in a 65). HTF do you guys live in that shythole it has deteriorated to? It's sad..used to be idyllic.

No kidding. Pretty much why the TV is never on in this house. I admit to my guilty pleasure of Game of Thrones and the new season of True Detective starts soon (looks freaking awesome), but anything else might as well be Oww! My Balls!
