Just sat watching an episode, not sure I like it. I like shed and buried with the guys but this doesn't seem to work for me. Also, the voice over of Jo Brand isn't very inspiring.

I've enjoyed the ones I've watched so far, I missed the early episodes so will catch up with them online. The fact that a photo of a large green machine appeared briefly in one episode was a bonus Wink

my wife & i watched it, it was ok, but she really gets annoyed with the voiceover, as she says you can see what is going on, not needed really.
atleast it is better than baking or cooking shows!

I very much like Henry and Sam and I just didn't see the need for the bland voice over.

I started watching a Car SOS repeat afterwards and that was much better, I like the format of that and Fuzz is really good.

I also watched a repeat of a Car SOS. In this episode they rebuilt a Triumph GT6. Having done this myself I appreciated what's involved.

Apart from the silly "blagged" parts bit, It gets the thumbs up from me.

I haven't seen this latest show but from what has been said it follows the same sort of format that irritates me. I can't imagine the Ms Brand voice over adds anything worth having.

I have for the first time watched a bit of Bangers and Cash tonight, I have missed all the previous episodes.

I quite like it, no silly bits and a lot of interesting vehicles.

Caught up with the MG Midget episode of Find It... yesterday, quite interesting but the voiceover continually referring to the car as a Healey Midget did begin to grate after a few minutes.

I suppose it's just intended as a badge engineering comment, a bit like "Oxbridge". That said, what's wrong with "spridget?
