Monster Garage was much more fun to watch.

King Shocks got some really good ad time there.

LMAO....the thing had more spliced clips than a bad porno.....We saw him I guess this was the same race at RM 180 Aprox and he was out of it there. We passed him in stock full, so he was WAY behind there. Total fake depiction of the race, the clips, the danger.....all around B.S. Disappointed, since he's the producer....Funny listening to his coderiver saying "Don't go fast in the tight sections!" where they went into a gulley at around RM 107 just before the summit.

I would not read too much into it. Take it as a show produced for the entertainment of the mass medium. Nothing more.
You should see how big of a panty wad the land speed record guys have become over the JJIADM show claiming a speed record on the hydrogen platform.

Cool footage. I could do without the major over-dramatization but I have to admit, I didn't peel my eyes off the show.

I am off to build some mine fields so I can work on my hand-eye coordination.

I agree, you have to take it for what it is, it's supposed to appeal to the masses, and regardless of how you view the show the Baja 500 was on yet another nationwide television show...I feel that the part with Jesse in the ravine was a good depiction of racing in Baja with the struggles of communication, lack of help due to the remote locations, and the will power that the drivers and codrivers have just to try and finish such a challenging race...overall, I think it made our sport look good (from a nationwide, mass audience standpoint).

The casual person that does not know anything about off-road probably thought it was a good show. I think the producers did a great job of winning over the mass audience with a good depiction of desert racing and Baja. kudos Jesse. I dug it!
x2, I think it was entertaining from the general perspective.

i agree , plus the show with probably air 20 to 30 times and it will give more exposure , each time more new faces will watch it due to talk such as this thread.

I can't stand that show. Its all about hyping up recreation and some of the stuff seems so faked. Like the police chase where they show numerous scenes of the cops staying right behind the LS1 camaro. As if that thing would not walk a police car like its standing still.
