I've been surprised that this show seems pretty reasonable. I was afraid it was going to be a bunch of rednecks beating up bad guys with tire irons. So far there's been no fist fights or guns drawn. Makes me think that there's some truth in the stories.
I liked this weeks episode the best so far. The mental case (worried about aliens) that covered the truck cab with tin foil had me laughing. I felt bad for the NJ trucker that got beat up by hijackers.
Are these stories supposed to be recreations? There's no way a film crew had time to set up the cameras while those Arizona guys grabbed the truck at the restaurant. That driver could have left the restaurant any second. The recovery guys can't risk farting around waiting on a camera crew to setup.
I had no idea recovering trucks was such a problem. Why didn't the driver at the hospital call into dispatch? Explain that his wife was critically ill and let dispatch know where the replacement drivers could find the truck. That's just common sense for anyone that doesn't want to get fired.
I'll keep watching for awhile. I just wish these recovery guys were in uniform. They look too much like hijackers. I'd call 911 if I saw those Arizona guys messing with a semi truck. They look too shady. I would expect a more professional appearance so the cops don't mistake them for criminals.
For a History channel reality show this isn't too ridiculous. I'll play along and enjoy the recreated stories.
