So, I've been sitting around for months waiting on Discovery Channel to kick off the new Planet Green station programming. All green, all day and all night. What's not to love. Well, it was sort of a let down.
The first show I watched was Mean Green Machines. I'm not really sure what I was expecting, but it certainly wasn't pick up truck competitions. The entire show was 2 full size trucks trying to outshine each other. The premise was that the new big ass hybrid (I forget which one ) really does have as much power as the other big ass non-hybrid. Two words - who cares? Now don't get me wrong, I understand there is a need for these trucks if you are a farmer or for some other reason need to be hauling around loads of crap all the time, but most of the trucks I see on the road are not hauling anything but air. So, I give that show 2 green thumbs down
The other drag about Planet Green is that the commercials (or should I say infomercials) are too freakin long. Discover channel - enough the the bowflex commercials - seriously! Please get more sponsors, ASAP.
I've watched several other shows over the past few days and if I wasn't such a polite southern girl I'd rip them apart, too. Did anybody hate the skirt chasing real estate agent on Alter Eco as much as I did?
Even though I haven't enjoyed Planet Green as much as I thought I would, I'm still holding out hope until I see their new show Greensburg which airs soon. It's about a town in Kansas that was destroyed by tornados last year and they've decided to rebuild the entire city green-i-ly. I so wanna move there!
So how bout it. Have you seen any of Planet Green's new programming? What did you think?
