TV Shows - American Chopper

American Chopper is a reality television series on The Learning Channel (TLC) and is produced by Pilgrim Films & Television. The popular series is based around the founder of the company, Paul Teutul, Sr., and his son, Paul Teutul, Jr., also known as Paulie or simply Junior, as the two run a business creating custom motorcycles in their workshop, Orange County Choppers. The workshop is located in Montgomery, New York. The contrasting attitudes of the men and their propensity for sulking often lead to fiery but humorous verbal exchanges as they meet unusually short schedule deadlines for building distinct custom choppers.

1 There are too many crossover shows/bikes with other Discovery or TLC shows. First it was Jon and Kate Plus 8, then this season it's Big Guns and Deadliest Catch. What's next The Little Couple? -- Submitted By: (bjohn345) on June 12, 2011, 10:15 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 A large percentage of the specialty bikes they build - especially the celebrity vanity models - are kind of lame. There is always far more emphasis placed on looks than on performance. And yes, the soap-opera quality of the father-son relationship got old a long time ago. American Chopper boned years ago. -- Submitted By: (Soggy9000) on April 9, 2011, 4:34 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
3 American Chopper, hmmm? Obviously, this will be about motorcycles. Hey. Wait...they're fighting. Okay. Back to the motorcycles...oh, they're fighting again! God, these two fight like Jerry Springer rejects. Please rename it "Chopper Fight Club" or something to that effect. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on March 15, 2011, 1:47 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
4 I seen a few episodes but it mostly about the family drama, I wanted to say them is just fix the bikes already. -- Submitted By: (SSM) on March 15, 2011, 10:37 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
5 Why don't they name this show something else, as it's not as much about the bikes anymore, than it is about what fight will happen next. -- Submitted By: (PYLrulz) on March 15, 2011, 5:29 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
6 I never care about the show from the get go but the show became even more annoying when it became more about Junior vs Senior meltdowns than building bikes -- Submitted By: (scatcatpdx) on January 17, 2011, 9:18 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
7 this is how a typical episode runs, from the ones ive seen ok, we have to build a bike a theme 100 beeps a dilemma that seems stupid that shouldnt be a problem for a bike shop dad and son complain finished bike count me out. -- Submitted By: (VeritechRyan) on October 19, 2010, 10:40 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
8 I don't even watch the show, but it BTF for me when I started seeing ads for it that highlighted the fact the father and son were suddenly no longer on speaking terms. Or was that just more staged "reality TV" drama? -- Submitted By: (DolFan316) on April 14, 2010, 10:11 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
9 The Teutuls became celebrities. Somewhere along the line (possibly the move to TLC) the show became more about their everyday doings than about the bikes they built. What made the show good was that it documented really cool bikes from start to finish, with the bonus of this really quirky family running the shop. I didn't even mind when they started putting the Teutuls in contrived situations to film what happens. But then it just got to be a little Teutul soap opera, the bikes got less creative and eventually just kind of faded into the background. The change from two-part to single episodes might well mark the exact boning point, since that was pretty much where they stopped documenting whole projects. -- Submitted By: (AndyC) on April 3, 2010, 12:34 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
10 These guys pick up and move more often than the circus, and every move to a bigger shop produced a corresponding decline in quality. But OCC's biggest boning moment is just the fact that they got very corporate, i.e. NASA, Gilette, and everyone with a dump truck full of money needed a chopper of some sort to promote their brand. And when the guys went to Europe- who wants to watch that? It's the Bradys going to Hawaii all over again. There are some great moments on the show, mainly in the early episodes where the shop couldn't scrape two nickels together. It really succeeded when it was about the amazing custom bikes instead of the fights and money. -- Submitted By: (RedPower) on January 31, 2010, 9:15 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
