|American Chopper: Senior
vs Junior Premiering on Thursday, Aug 12 (2011) at 9PM ET/PT on TLC.
Have you been watching? It looks like senior wants to get back
together with Junior. Senior has even email Junior.
Junior emailed or was it texted condolences when Senior's dog, Gus,
died. Junior won the court case but it still hasn't settled
anything. I think they'll be friends again but who knows? They
both realized that they're getting older and life is short. I hope
they work things out.
Here's another thought ..... maybe Senior and Junior are already getting along but they are putting on a good show for television.
I always thought that Coke and Pepsi were friends and were just playing like they were competing. The prices for each are usually the same so it doesn't look like they are competing. I'm gonna Google that!

Number of Episodes: 108 Cast: Paul Teutul, Sr. (Owner, Operator, Senior Manager of Orange County Choppers), Paul Teutul, Jr. (Senior fabricator), part of management staff, (kids might be reading this) disturber) Michael Teutul (General Assistant and American Chopper class clown) He does whatever his dad let's him do and then he helps disturb the (kids might be reading this) Rick Petko (Fabricator, Metal Specialist) Vince (Fabricator, Wiring Specialist) Jason Pohl (The computer guy. He helps the staff design what they want to build by making paper templates or representations of parts.) Mike Rowe (Announcer--the guy from Dirty Jobs) Paul (Senior) Teutul and his two sons are contracted by celebrities and businesses and charities to make theme-based choppers (custom motorcycles).
They have built a cycle for Shaq, .......(list to come) Paul (Senior) is a by-the-book type of guy but he can also cause his own chaos. Paul (Junior), the oldest of two sons at the shop, is often portrayed as lazy and irresponsible. The youngest son, Mike "Mikey" is a fun-loving free spirit. He is a constant source of humour. Often times when Senior and Junior are arguing about something Mikey will come and do something silly to diffuse the situation.
The other shop workers include Vince and Rick. There is a student builder who works at Orange County Choppers on and off. Nubby is the contracted painter. He is responsible for painting the parts of the cycle according to the chosen theme. (There is a third son who makes appearances on the show. He has his own steel business).The father and the sons take time out every so often to destroy stuff for fun or for demolition so new stuff can be built. One of my favourite episodes is the one when Mikey gets his pickup truck stuck in his dad's swamp. His dad has a hilarious time getting Mikey unstuck. He asks one of his assistants to hook a winch to Mikey's truck to pull him out. When it's time to pull Senior tells Mikey to stay in the truck and steer. On Seniors say so the assistant starts pulling carefully but then Senior yells at his to go as fast as possible and not to stop until he says so. Mikey gets the ride of his life as he is pulled backward and bumped around wildly. Senior gets a chuckle out of this whole incident. Mikey is understandably shaken but not surprised because he knows how his dad thinks. Hopefully Mikey learned his lesson.......
Another fun episode that stands out is when Junior takes Senior for a ride in a golf cart and ends the ride by smashing the cart into the back of the warehouse. Senior is shaken but is laughing the whole way through. He knows how Junior thinks and was not surprised by the way things ended.
One time when it was decided that Mikey needed a new car because his car wasn't winter safe or just safe at all a few of the staff members took turns trying to run his old car into the ground. I believe it was Vince who tried to drive the car like a maniac and smash the car up a little. After that anyone who could get at the car with a tool did. They beat the .........(kids might be reading this) out of the car. (E-Mail me if you want some suggestions for words that might fit.)
Back to the story. Senior offers to take Mikey to the car dealer and make sure he gets a good deal. They wanted to trade in Mikey's car and get a pickup truck. They could have towed Mikey's car in the conventional way but no!!!!!!!!..... Mikey and his friend sat in his car which was hooked up to Senior's Hummer. Then when all was set Senior proceeded to drag them to the dealership. Mikey and his friend both feared for his life as they both watch as senior continued to drag them to the dealer. They got there safely and Senior teaches Mikey how to bargain. After Mikey and the salesman exchange pieces of paper with figures on them Senior breaks out into laughter and ends up surprised when the salesman accepts their terms. Junior proudly drives his truck back to the shop.--If you see the episode you will see how funny it is. Oh by the way the show is on at least once a week. Check your local listings. (There might or might not have been someone in the car with Mikey--I will have to check) The Father takes his two sons and sometimes the staff to trade shows or other events around the United States and even in other countries. They had some fun and funny adventures in France and England and some other places. They start of trying to learn stuff and they end up on many misadventures. The is a Learning Channel documentary television series produced by Pilgrim Films & Television Inc. The story is based around Paul Sr. and Paul Jr. (Paulie).
Paul Senior and Junior are always fighting. They have different ways of working and have different ways of scheduling work. Senior is by the book and strict; Junior is laid back. They both get the work done but hate each other's methods of getting to the end. When they were working out of the same shop they did end up getting the work done by the deadline. They even acknowledge each other's contributions. I think I heard them apologize to each other for giving each other grief.

On American Chopper Senior is foreman and supervises the builds and has built motorcycles himself. Mikey was (at OCC) the janitor and webmaster. He was the class clown and helped the staff relieve tension. He does that at Junior's shop now. Mikey has experience working with metal from working at Orange County Ironworks with his other brother.
