Remember that great BBC series that got ported to The Learning Channel back in the late ’90s, “Junkyard Wars”?
It was a show that one fan site (Junkyard Wars Online) described as “equal parts gameshow, Mad Max and science lesson in a race to see which team will build the best machine in the allotted time of just ten hours.”
Well, I have searched high and low, and cannot find them on DVD, Hulu, Netflix, TV.com, YouTube or anywhere else…
Oh, there was a really grainy video on Google Video of one episode with Swedish subtitles, and you can order a few episodes that will be burned to DVD on-demand from Amazon, but really ?!? In an age where MythBusters is still wildly popular (for good reason), and copy-cat shows abound, like Destroy, Build, Destroy, why is it so hard to find the granddaddy of them all?
(I know Wikipedia says there are reruns on the Science Channel sometimes, but I really don’t want to pay $100+ for digital cable or satellite every month.)
I can’t believe I’m willing to pay just for this show, and nobody will sell it to me.
