Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

Monster Garage is one of the few shows of its kind that works with a limited budget, which adds a rougher, more do-it-yourself feel to the builds. And with its attention-getting camerawork and dramatic music, the show will probably keep teens' attention better than other similar series. That said, some cheesy staged moments detract from the episodes, and less attention is paid to math and engineering skills here than in shows like American Hot Rod and Biker Build-Off. But props are given for hands-on talents like welding and wiring. For people interested in cars, motorcycles, or anything mechanically oriented, this series can be a fun diversion.
