Monster Garage lives again.

Monster Garage was a popular television show for the Discovery Channel hosted by Jesse G. James. A team of five people with mechanical, fabricating, or modifying expertise builds a "monster machine."

Despite its huge ratings success, Monster Garage was cancelled in 2006 after Jesse G. James lost interest in the show shortly after his marriage to movie star Sandra Bullock. Jesse had grown so bitter that he did not even appear in the Finale. Obviously the show could not be produced without its sole architect, and so James rode into the sunset.

My favorite Discovery TV show behind Mythbusters. It left this world way too soon, IMHO. However, it lives again on Thursday nights on TLC. The show has been shortened into a 30 minute show, removing a lot of the drama, but keeping the core building and machining. There are two episodes run back to back. Right now, season one is running. School Bus/Pontoon and Geo Tracker/Baloon was on last night.
