Good and different reality series
16 December 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I'm not much for reality type serials, but this one is pretty good. It's interesting the way people curse out and villainies the Philadelphia Parking Authority. (PPA) It really shows how clueless those folks that ignore simple rules like having insurance and a valid drivers license keeps everyone safe and secure. (somewhat) It get on my nerves a little bit when morons yell at the PPA officers who are just doing their jobs. I wonder if these dopes realize that if there were no parking rules, people would just double park and park in front of hydrants and emergency areas,park in handicapped spots,cars would clog already ridiculously overcrowded roadways. Think about that next time you yell at 1 of these officers!

I find the PPA officers on this show to be funny and interesting, the way each personality blends into the Philly scene. Particularly interesting is Garfield and Sherry, 2 Boot officers who have a great chemistry, and show what great teamwork they have feeding off each other.

Each and every PPA officer on this show almost is forced to learn psychology in order to deal with an angry and ignorant public. Some are really good at defusing a volatile situation and confrontation from a panicked ticket offender.

Give this show a look, its not too taxing on the brain, and has a good mix of humor sensitivity and a good picture of urban Philly life.
