Just watched the First Episode on Natl. Geo. Channel in California
24 January 2013 | by highsierraerSee all my reviews

I really enjoyed the first episode of this series. Surprise of surprises, so far this show isn't over produced like so many reality shows. A bit of scripting and a scene where supposedly a tow truck driver goes up the wrong way of the highway without authority, but overall very interesting and good filming and show.

It's also nice to finally see a professional tow company with good equipment and professional drivers that know what they are doing, and handle themselves and the equipment like you would expect from a tow operator. I'm really impressed with the beautiful trucks, especially the three axle tow unit. A very rough highway and a long winter must make for some interesting work.

I hope that the producers don't feel the need to get too deep into personal squabbles between employees and other tow companies as the future episodes play out. This could be a very interesting show and popular for quite a long time. You don't need to play out false drama with this show, there is enough at play with the weather, equipment, accidents, etc.

Looking forward to future episodes and glad to read they are going to be coming back for another season.
