Surprisingly Fascinating
1 October 2004 | by Kashmir-4See all my reviews

It's too bad that IMDb doesn't provide a whole lot of information because this show is really interesting (at least, I think it is). Basically, it's about a family of bail-bondsmen (and women) led by gruff, blue-collar (and intimidating) patriarch "Dog" Chapman. This is a literal family, mind you, where his son, brother, nephew and wife work alongside him to maintain his business. This is a man who comes from a very rough background to become a figure of redemption and responsibility for the state of Hawaii. The most interesting aspect, I believe, is watching the character study of someone who is very street-smart, unlike someone such as myself who comes from a very safe, middle-class upbringing and college eduction.
