Thats another channel to avoid then! What an annoying show!
some very good rare mvs on it
I have enjoyed all the ones I've managed to see, what a collection he has! Don't forget its not made for military vehicle fans, but the general public, so will have the cheesey scripted moments.
1956 Austin K9 Radio Relay
1955 Bedford RL GS
1951 Fordson E4 x2
once u get past the larger than life characters , and normally people who have amassed a collection like that are colourful ! its pretty good.
Enjoyed it, could have been seen as stuffy to general public without those characters

Some very interesting vehicles and some colourful characters. Spoiled by the absurdly contrived script. I would be quite happy for them to show some interesting vehicles that they come across without the rubbish of pretending to buy and sell them on. I hate the "turning cool military collectables into cold hard cash" garbage. I see that the US version "combat cash" was pulled after the first series when even the presenters complained about it.
Could have been good. An opportunity wasted.
Some say the cup is half empty, while others say it is half full. However, in my opinion both are wrong. The real problem is the cup is too big.

For those that have missed 'Combat Dealers' either by accident or design it can now be seen today (Sunday) on Quest in EIGHT back to back episodes. The programme starts at 10am or an hour later on Quest+1.
I managed to watch the episodes online (I don't have Quest), and I must say I do like this show a lot. Yes, the script is not always believeable and the acting is over-the-top sometimes, but I've know Bruce Crompton for years and he is a larger-than-life figure in person as well; very friendly too. His collection and the quality of his restorations are well known.
As stated before, this is a show for the general public, not a documentery for the MV crowd. This format was probably chosen so the show can be sold to TV stations worldwide (read: the US).
I hope there will be a new season made, I will certainly watch it.
Money can't buy happiness -- but somehow it's more comfortable to cry in a Corvette than in a Yugo.
I have to agree with earlymb - I watched all six and found them OK. Like stated its TV so it has to have some drama. I saw stuff I havent seen before in places I've never been so in that respect its cool.
You can never have to many firearms or military vehicles.
