4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully entertaining ! 19 Jan 2011

Chop Shop: Well, I saw Chop Shop on TV some time ago and since I am interested in the mechanics in cars, decide to buy the first series. As expected it is utter mayhem in Brick Lane once Bernie and Leepu get together. Despite racial and cultural differences, they 'gel' well and create wonderful new models from scrap.

What I feel should have been part of every episode is the exact price that they managed to get for their 'creation'. This was sorely missing. Maybe if there is a Series 2, it might be a good idea to incorporate that. As far as Bernie's "colourful" language is concerned, I wonder if his English is usually so inter-laced with expletives !!I know for a fact that Leepu has 'acquired' those expletives to 'gel' in, but that is what gives the series its distinctive character.

It might also be a good idea to avoid 'repetitions' of points by the narrator, but I understand that as a series created for TV, a link is essential for a viewer who unable to watch it at one go.

Definitely better than 'Overhaulin' which, I think is another series produced by the same production house. Well worth the money, if you enjoy cars and their 'creation' - if you understand what I mean!

When is Series 2 coming, if at all??

Being the incurable spanner-monkey that I am, but of some age, I love series like this!
Chop Shop: London Garage gives you one of the best - and most entertaining - series to your very own small screen in the living room.

I don't know 'bout the truthfulness of the series background when they claim it's a legitimate business and so on - but never mind - let's just be in it for the ride and the (in)sane inspiration!

It's all about spirited designer Leepu Awlia from Bangladesh and his arrival in the UK where he is teamed up with long-time, old skool mechanic Bernie Fineman, a true cockney, me thinks. In addition there's Leepu's brother Zia, welder and panel beater and all the other guys in the team, like Julian, Terry, a polish guy nick-named Magic and at least two more.

From piles of junk from scrappers and elsewhere they design and build unique one-offs in record time, all of them road legal.

There's plenty of sparks flying from grinders as well as from the friction between them in the team.
This is nothing like American Chopper and other shows, this is far more entertaining, even for non-petrol heads because the series focuses on so many aspects.

Beautifully shot without artificial lighting and with just the right camera to give the episodes a gritty enough feel to them.

I normally care little for the extras, but here they're essential!
You get the two original episodes shot in Bangladesh - they have to be seen to be believed! There's also two episodes with production commentaries.

Great series! Only draw-back is that the DVD's are printed as they were aired as a TV-series, that is it's edited for commercial breaks, but never mind - you gotta luv'em!

If you enjoy car restorations you will love this !!

Loud Cockney ' wide boy' mechanic Bernie meets Leepu, a renowned Bangladeshi car designer !!

Catastrophies abound, also loud and foul language !!

Amazingly, the result is beautiful car creations with Leepus amazing bodywork skills and Bernie making the pistons and camshafts roar !!!
