Trivia

The series began when Villalobos was in California. Midway through the series, Villalobos moved to New Orleans, Louisiana when they were forced to leave through rezoning and opposition from locals; they had helped in NOLA after Hurricane Katrina, and so chose to relocate there to continue their work.

Quotes

Tia Torres: My name is Tia Maria Torres and I know about second chances. I run a sanctuary for over 300 pit bulls... The world's most misunderstood breed of dog. And it's for parolees the guys I hire because nobody else will. I'm not fighting the battle alone. My family shares my passion. In the City of Second Chances my mission is to rescue... My hope is that one day I won't have to.

I just keep watching to see who gets killed first
23 October 2010 | by (.: Fiendish Writings in the Dark :.) – See all my reviews

I watch Pit Boss, which this follows, and got roped into watching this as a by-product of being busy at work at my desk and unable to bestow enough attention to the set to change the station. But this show kind of grows on you. Like a fungus, yes, but one which grows quickly enough to enable you to actually SEE it grow, so it captures your attention a bit better than maybe it should.

The premise is a lonely prison-widow (an ex-con, herself, I think?), saving pit bulls to the detriment of her own children (she talks about what hideous sacrifices the children had to make in order for her to have her kennel), while employing parolees to house and work around her two impressionable (and by all accounts very available) young daughters.

I cannot stop watching, simply because I MUST KNOW who dies first? A dog attacking one of the workers? A worker by the hand of a dog or another con? A worker by virtue of knocking up one of the daughters? One of the daughters by virtue of one of the dogs? the Mom jealous over a one night stand? or a con out on parole for rape/homicide? The possibilities are limitless.

While the initial premise may have been a worthy one (saving dogs and giving cons a second chance), this thing is an absolute train wreck. If you're not already hooked, leave it alone. Do what Nancy Reagan taught us, and Just Say "NO!"

It rates a 3.8/10 from...
