Most scripted, staged nonsense on television
Many of us wondered what the absolute rock bottom of "reality TV" would look like. And now we know. Sadly.
I have worked with repo agents for almost 20 years. A number of them are close, personal friends. This is about as far as one can get from anything approaching reality. Every episode seems to feature NUMEROUS felony assaults, both against and by the LL team. And yet nobody cares. Those of you who think this crap is real are the kind of childish tools who tense up while watching pro wrestling. Bobby is a superman who regularly takes on (and takes out) three, four, five guys at once. Come on! And Ronny's inane analogies? That's supposed to be funny? One out of a hundred are slightly humorous, while the rest are just pure idiocy. And good or bad, he clearly doesn't come up with them himself.
What do you people think the and the 19 "producers," 14 "production assistants," and the two "STORY PRODUCERS" are paid for? This is fictitious nonsense. Real repossessions are most often boring affairs in which the recovery agent drives by an address five times, checks the place of employment a few more, etc. Other than the fans of real PI work and skip tracing, the show wouldn't entertain anyone unless there was the type of "comedy" and "action" the producers CREATE. Those of you deluded enough to think this crap has any relation to reality are the reason TV has gotten so bad. My God, people! When you applaud crap, we all get more of it. Please stop deceiving yourselves and either turn the channel or read a book.
