Storyline

Ron and Amy Shirley primarily repossess vehicles and machinery. Their clients are lien holders. Ron's role is to locate and repossess property, while Amy deals with irate owners who come demanding that their property be returned. Ron opened "Lizard Lick Towing" in 1998 with one truck. With Amy's help, the business grew over a period of 10 years to become a successful company with a staff of 15 and a fleet of 20 trucks. Ron, who is an ordained minister with a soft spot for people who have fallen on hard times, prepares a huge barbecue meal each year to help some of the people who have had their property repossessed by "Lizard Lick Towing".

Stop taking a show that doesn't take itself seriously so seriously.
29 July 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Seriously! I actually hate reality TV with a passion, but I love this show. Of course it's fake - as is almost everything else you see on TV and at the movies. If it wasn't fake it would be boring as heck. It would be like taking your favorite action movie (or any movie), and throwing away the script, the special effects, the stunt doubles, and all the ridiculous situations that could/would never happen in real life. Throw all that away and... yawn. Suddenly that "action" movie becomes pretty boring and you might as well just look out your window at people walking down the sidewalk. How exciting.

Once you accept that this show is fake, then you can enjoy it. But if you go in expecting it to be legit and believing they're trying hard to make you believe it's legit (they're not), then of course you're going to be disappointed and offended.

Lizard Lick Towing has a little bit of everything (and a good mix of it in my opinion): action, violence, drama, humor, scandal, suspense... and the acting/ad libbing/improv is actually a lot more natural than in most movies and shows on TV. Dare I say it, this show is actually kind of "cute" and endearing. At the very least it's far from pretentious and does not take itself seriously at all, unlike basically every other reality TV show and many non-reality TV shows and movies too.

Another thing I like besides all that is, despite the many imperfections of the characters (they, Bobby especially, are very quick to get physical with people; they often use foul language; they laugh and insult and taunt the person they're repoing from as they drive away; among many other things - of course this is all to make things more entertaining for us) they're actually good, likable, legitimately everyday-seeming (just more colorful) people with good morals: they believe in family, friendship, charity, doing the right thing, being confident in who you are as a person and accepting people for who they are, giving people second chances, helping people in their time of need, working hard, being honest, etc. It's kind of a minor point (and thankfully the show doesn't push these morals down our throats; they're just kind of there), but I think it's a nice touch that helps make the show as watchable as it is.

While those of you who "get it" will understand why I'm giving this 10/10 stars, some might think I'm crazy. To those people, bear this in mind: I give it that rating because I'm judging it for what it is, not for what it's not and isn't trying to be. Of course this is not some Emmy-award winning television show with brilliant writing, acting, directing, production, musical scores, etc. It's not supposed to be, and I'm glad, because we have enough of those shows as it is. It's just supposed to be light hearted, easy viewing, and fun to watch. And that it is, and for that reason I hope they keep renewing it for more and more seasons.

To those who haven't seen the show before, or who have and are one of the ones who gave it one star and talked about how awful it was and how insulted you felt: if you watch it realizing and accepting that it's fake, and then suspend your disbelief (as you do with any other show or movie), and don't take it or yourself so seriously, I think you'll agree it's actually pretty darn fun, funny, and entertaining to watch.
