Confession time. I loved the cable series Monster Garage. Loved it. Watched every episode at least once. I was so hooked that I once trekked over to my local Barnes and Noble to meet the host, the tattooed and possibly crazy, now husband of Sandra Bullock, Jesse James. Now mind you, I'm a pretty oridinary thirty-something woman with no ink, no motorcycle in the garage, and no checkered past or juvie stints on my record, but I still love shows where tough-looking guys weld and blow things up. And Jesse James does it better than anyone. (Trust me, or check out this video for proof.) He's sort of the anti-Ty Pennington (nothing against over-enthusiastic goofball Ty and his megaphone), but James speaks softly and carries deadly weapons.
Now the West Coast Choppers owner has returned to TV, on Spike (naturally), for a new reality series called Jesse James Is a Dead Man. Great title for a series where James will be laughing in the face of danger as he puts himself in insane situations (which sound like they will involve him indulging his need for speed). It's like Survivorman meets America's Toughest Jobs with wildcard Jesse James thrown into the mix. No word yet on when it will debut. (Sigh.) But you can bet I'll be watching. Maybe it will even inspire me to finally get off the couch and take up some of those extreme sports that I so love to watch.
