Custom-car aficionados will find plenty to like here. Flex and his buddies discuss the features of different engine components and talk up their favorite car models. There's plenty of footage of people looking at engines and giving each other excited high fives. Flex also visits the shop, observing as skilled mechanics convert junkers into fully restored works of automotive art, though these sequences have little narration and provide almost no insight into the process.

The show's main focus is candid scenes in which professional athletes and hip-hop stars show off their car collections and take joyrides in these high-powered vehicles. Flex and his friends share a love for custom cars, and the show will probably appeal to people who appreciate this world. But if you don't know the difference between NOS and gas and you think the trunk is for storing luggage instead of an enormous sound system, this isn't the show for you.
