Episode discussion for: 04x23 | Backroad Samurai (Jul 09, 2012)

I am disappointed that this episode includes a blatant Subway commercial in the program. Not since the movie castaway has product placement been so intrusive. The program, and the show stars Mike and Frank have lost credibility with regards to keeping the program true to its spirit and content.

Yeah, that annoyed me also. Product placement is a dangerous thing to do on any show because it can make it seem as if the show is all commercial.

Boo on them.
