The motorcycle riding Norman Reedus (The Walking Dead) and friends are back on TV for season 5.  The show is on AMC (check local listings) and streaming AMC.COM.

I just finished watching episode one, in which Norman and Josh Brolin (Avengers/Deadpool) ride New Zealand’s North island. In addition to the normal tourist “stuff” like the Lord of the Rings Hobbit village and glow worms the show really discusses the impact of the Māori on New Zealand and Māori  culture.

I have reviewed previous seasons of the show and found them mostly enjoyable with the exception of the sound quality when talking between bikes.  This season sound is better but at times still difficult to understand.  Is the technology not there or is a style choice?

A running joke during the show was how people would recognize Norman but not Josh/Thanos.  That was funny, guess the makeup and special affects worked because no one recognized Josh.

I will watch the rest of the season.

from trutv websireTruTV’s Full Throttle Saloon will be returning to televsion on the 2nd of December.  TruTV describes Full Throttle Saloon this way:

“This is one show that’s born to be wild! Every year, the Full Throttle Saloon is open for only ten days in August, when bikers from all over the world descend on the black hills of South Dakota for the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. For bar owner Michael Ballard, the profits are huge, but the reality is intense. From managing a full staff of bartenders and dancing girls to hosting big name concerts and burlesque shows, keeping it together is more than most people could handle”

I describe it as just a lot of fun!  I have not been to Sturgis yet and everytime I see this show I just want to kick my own butt for not going yet!  Based on last season’s show I give Full Throttle Saloon 5 stars.
