Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Biker Battleground Phoenix features lots of motorcycle shop talk and high-concept custom bikes but also centers on the rivalries among bike builders. There's lots of strong vocab ("bitch," "piss," and "ass," for example; curses are sometimes only partially bleeped); cocky, insult-filled exchanges; and crude references to men's genitals. Logos for Harley-Davidson, Honda, Apple, and local bike shops and bars are visible. Drinking is sometimes shown at bars and bike shows and events.
Is It Any Good?
Biker Battleground Phoenix highlights the culture of the $8-billion-a-year industry, where ego and reputation are as important as money. Although the show reveals the amount of creativity, ingenuity, and hard work that goes into each bike these folks work on, most of the show centers on the animosity among the builders.
It won't appeal to a wide range of viewers, but motorcycle enthusiasts will enjoy the shop talk as well as the range of high-concept, tricked-out bikes featured. But the cocky (and sometimes heated) exchanges among these bikers often seem childish and quickly become tiresome.
Did we miss something on diversity?
