The TV-MA rating that flashes on the screen makes it immediately clear. Chad Hoover’s new That’s Knot Right Carbon TV web series is like nothing the sport has ever seen.
Want a taste before you click play? Here’s a selection of the crazy stuff Hook 1 owner Chad says during the pilot episode of his new reality show, based around his store in the same way Pawn Stars is centered around the Gold and Silver Pawn Shop:
