Annoyingly Addictive
22 September 2013 | by See all my reviews

Much like "Storage Wars" or "Storage Hunters", i did not want to watch this, yet - it's good. However, Shipping Wars outshines both these shows, as the setting, items and journeys are different every single time. Roy is by far the star of this show, with Jarrett providing some look through your fingers viewing. I did not expect to enjoy this at all, however the downright fun of it, and the constant remarks from Roy such as "perfect, just like me" make it fantastic viewing. The one let down to the series is Chris and Robbie, whom do not posses the "entertainment factor" unlike Roy, Mark, Jarrett and Jennifer who always manage to come out with snide comments, hilarious one liners and always produce a wonderful show. As I said before, Roy is by far the star of this show, and sometimes overwhelms everyone - however, this is a good thing. Once you start watching, you wont want to see anyone else.

Shipping Wars is well worth a watch, and will leave you rooting for Roy and his one liners, and leaving you a bit starstruck with the idiocy of Jarrett.

A real, true, gritty 10 out of 10 show.
