Time to put the dog down
7 October 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is supposed to be entertainment, this.

I don't see what the appeal is in a group of ugly, cheesy waterworld enthusiasts that never take off their sunglasses arresting hispanics.

The show is clearly fake.

they meet up with a victim, usually a woman and in both episodes i've seen they are hispanic, then torpedo boobs comforts her, the woman clearly cannot find a way to cry so opts to hide her face on her car seat, between her hands or in the mighty clasp of the torpedo boobs.

although you can hear what the woman says her words are subtitled, is this a racist thing or do they think people really don't hear what she's saying.

then they arrest the person at the end of the episode and all this hispanic couple do is hug and kiss, the man doesn't even try to get away, meanwhile Dog and the others spout some idealistic religious crap to make it seem like the only answer to this druggies way of life is taking on Christianity.

Then get this, they choose themselves whether or not to have the guy arrested or set them completely free.

This show is not only terrible, it's bad for the environment, because we've had 5 seasons of this group trail the streets in massive 4x4's.

No redeeming qualities, clearly fake, clearly unscripted because i cant imagine any writer worth their weight in A4 paper would write for this show, and the characters look ridiculous.
