For an entire week, Saget, the neurotic funny-man from popular, but off-the-air shows, such as “Full House” and “Americas’ Funniest Home Videos,” submersed himself within the culture of the Iron Order Motorcycle Club. Beginning at the “Mother Chapter” in Louisville, KY, Saget travels with the bikers through several states, attending parties, a wedding between members, a heart-felt funeral service for a fallen member, and eventually winds up becoming the only honorary member in the club’s history. Additionally, local attorney John C. Whitfield, who is a member of the Iron Order’s International Board, can be seen riding or hanging out alongside Saget in many of the show’s shots.

As Whitfield told iSurf News of the experience, “Bob is a really good guy. We were a little bit concerned early on that he might be kind of a ‘Hollywood prima donna” type, but he was not at all. He could not have been nicer. He’s a legitimately great guy and he’s highly regarded in the Iron Order.”

“If you saw the show and heard our President, ‘IZOD,’ then you know the goal is to utilize a lot of the old-time motorcycle club persona with none of the baggage, with none of the crime. Sure, they’ll tear up when it comes time to have a party, but there are no drugs or anything like that. Anything illegal is, of course, forbidden,” said Whitfield. “I’ll tell you this, and this is a fact, if you ever needed something, you can call these guys and they don’t even ask what the issue is, they’re right there to help you out. I’ve never seen anything like it. For a lot of our guys, the Iron Order is all they have, and at the end of the day, I think Bob Saget realized that it’s a family. It might be a ‘weird’ family, but it’s a family nonetheless.”

To view entire episodes of the new series, including the debut episode (“Strange Days: Riding Shotgun with Hardcore Bikers”), you can visit A&E’s official website at http://www.aetv.com/. However, it should be noted that the series is aimed at an open-minded adult audience due to adult situations, language, and themes.
