Quality Reality TV
17 May 2005 | by srricSee all my reviews

A fine and entertaining reality show depicting what happens to deadbeat losers that don't follow the rules of the bail bondsman. Watch as Dog smashes and trashes his way through the slime of the earth, and be thankful that there are people out there willing to do what the Dog does. This is normally a thankless and relatively low paying job that few are willing to do. If it weren't for people like the Dog, willing to risk their lives every time they go out, there would be much more riffraff out there. Certainly a superior program to 99% of the commercial filled, trashy, not remotely funny sitcoms(filled with canned laughter every other line of dialogue), and moronic, dull, made for pea wit dramas that fill the network airwaves night after night. A unique and refreshing change from the usual trite teenybopper fare. THE DOG RULES!!! Watch and learn.
