Movie Reviews

NOT the complete 1st season
Rodney L. Hayes | Hamden, OH USA | 05/30/2005
(4 out of 5 stars)

"As another reviewer pointed out, there are missing episodes & some footage. The episodes "Jet Bike" & "Biketober" are not included. If you want these, prepare to shell out more $$$ + s/h from discoverychannel. com to get them."
Great for Fast Forward Feature!
Glenn Martin | ACT Australia | 05/31/2005

"I bought the first season DVD set and have been thoroughly enjoying the show. The final bikes look fantastic and really give you the urge to get a custom chopper of your own. When you watch the 9/11 Fire Fighters tribute bike being put together, and see how everyone gets so personally involved, you can't help but feel a bit moved by the unveiling.

Two minor gripes with the series.

The first is that all you really see of bike building is Paul Jr fabricating bits and pieces from sheet metal and bolting them to the bike. Don't get me wrong, the guy's vision is amazing, but they send out for most things including painting and custom framework. You get to see snapshots of an engine being lifted into the frame, or a wheel having the axle put through it, but if you are expecting pointers on how to really put a custom chopper together (installing engine, electricals, etc) then you will need to look elsewhere.

The other thing is the famous/infamous Paul Sr V's Paul Jr shouting matches that take up a good 1/4 of each episode. You have to real feel for the other guys in the shop as it must be embarrassing as hell. If you enjoy watching people screaming at each other in a dysfunctional fashion then you will enjoy it. For me when they start going at it I just hit fast forward on the remote, once the arms stop waving around I resume playback and enjoy see the bike taking shape.

All in all for a "reality show" it is a very enjoyable series and I will be buying Series 2 very soon."
Good show good value

"Big fan of the series. I actually run on the fire dept. with a guy that met them at one of the bike weeks in Myrtle Beach. Only complaint is the Jet Bike episode is missing (it wasn't that good anyway thanks to the stupid narrator) so I don't consider it a "complete" first season otherwise still worth the money."
My students love American Chopper DVD's

"I have used the American Chopper series in my Management 101 class for a couple of years. Rather than have students role play various scenarios, I pull out sections of the escapes of the guy's at OCC to discuss issues and concepts of management and supervision. Both entertaining and informative."
