The tide may finally be turning against Gangland, the execrable, ATF enabled “reality” show that chronicled and justified the expensive and bogus federal crusade against “gangs.” Next Saturday, June 8th, The Last American Outlaw, a documentary film about long time Hells Angel George Christie and his most recent court case, will be screened to potential […]

The Devils Ride cablecast its fourteenth episode and ended its second “season” last Monday. If that’s it, it will have been the show’s schizophrenia that killed it. The show began as a supposed real look inside a real motorcycle club – “a place,” as one of Hunter Thompson’s early admirers put it, “few of us […]

The first time I saw Terry the Tramp was in the early 90s. I was “securing” a section of a parking lot in San Bernardino when a perfectly green Chevy Caballero pulled into the other end of the lot. “Is that Terry the Tramp,” a guy near me asked. Then he answered himself, “Yep. That’s […]

Watching The Devil’s Ride, the new reality series about a motorcycle club in San Diego is a little like watching a classic horror movie.
