Greatest Reality Series On TV!
6 October 2004 | by (Houston, TX) – See all my reviews

Dog The Bounty Hunter is a show about a family who lives and works together. They own and operate a bail bonding company called Da Kine (The Best) Bail Bonds in Hawaii. The show follows Duane "Dog" Chapman, his wife Beth, his son Leland, his nephew Justin and a close friend who he considers a brother, Tim Chapman (no relation). The main focus of the show is "The Posse" track customers who "skip" bail on them and must be captured and turned in to the police otherwise they do not collect their bond. When the customers "skip" on them, Dog and crew track down the "fugitives" and "bring them to justice" all while juggling a home and family life. The main reason I enjoyed the show is due to the fact that this show brings an up-close-and-personal view of what "bail enforcement agents" really have to do just to make ends meet and still try to live a normal suburbanite family life.
