Misfit Garage - staged drama
One of the problems I have with television shows is that they always turn into soap operas. You go to watch a crime show and they spend half the episode working the sexual tension between two characters who, for some reason, just can't seem to express their feelings. Then at the last minute some minute DNA particle surfaces or the super hacker in the group uncovers some smoking gun.
That's now worked its way into reality tv. Street Outlaws always has two people with some grudge against each other instead of just racing. Fast and Loud has headed that way with the restaurant, the race car, the NHRA sponsorship, and the ongoing grudge with Fired Up Garage.
In the most recent episode of Misfit Garage, just to keep you on the edge of your seat, they had their slack jawed flunkie "painting" the driveshaft nobody would see because they didn't like red, white, and blue. Naturally, the jackass paints the thing with a rattle can INSIDE, standing between the fan that was so high he could barely get any paint on the driveshaft and the freshly painted project on which all their fortunes rely. Predictably, the overspray is now a great threat to their project being complete on time. Fortunately the detailer can save their special paint job and everybody lives happily ever after.
First, if there's such a strong breeze that you can barely get any paint on the object you're painting and you don't move somewhere else, you're probably not smart enough to hold a can of paint.
Second, the can is clearly Plasti-Dip, not real paint. Nobody paints a driveshaft with Plasti-Dip. But they do paint things where they want the paint to be easily removable, like staged overspray on your project's special paint job.
Thanks Discovery Channel for wasting valuable time I could have spent re-arranging my sock drawer.

I keep noticing the DOT puts up signs to honor my burnouts. That's nice of them.
