The Newest Bestest TV Show

I know I told you a long time ago that I am not a big fan of watching TV. My favorite shows are Cash Cab, Animal planet and of course, Local on the 8’s. (the weather channel) That was up until this week. My wife actually found this new show and turned me on to it and now I am addicted. It was just like one hit of Reefer in Reefer Madness. One try was all I needed and now I am a TV junkie. Ok I just dated myself with that one. I am of course talking about “The Repo Man.”

For those who have not seen this show, you are really missing out. It is about the repo-man. He is a very large Mexican Gentleman who along with his wonderful family and a tattoo covered strong man go out and reposes things that people aren’t paying for. His family consists of his son and daughter who seem to be quite normal but then there is his sister. She is another really large individual, (not that there is anything wrong with that), but she chooses to wear slinky outfits to show off her body. Then there are her face piercings. Those really don’t do anything for me. (Enough said, you get the picture or should I say you don’t want that picture)

So then go to homes or businesses and walk in and drive out with stuff. Last night, they went to reposes a truck and a boat because a couple was way behind in both payments. When they got to the house it was a stroke of luck for repo-man. The couple there was getting the boat ready to take out so it was hooked up to the truck. When they walked up and told the couple what was going on, they did what everyone else does. They denied that they were behind and put up a fight. (more lying) Then the wife came out in her bikini and got into the action. At first she argued with the repo-man but then her husband accused her of not making the payments. (nice ploy but it didn’t work) After a brief front yard fight, the repo-man prevailed and got away with the goods.

In other segments, they repossessed a hotdog stand, 6 cars from a car lot, an Audi and a $60,000 motorcycle. What amazes me the most is that these people think that they should be allowed to keep these luxury things even though they aren’t following through with their contracts? What’s wrong with people these days?

Now before you jump all over me for watching such a bad show, let me tell you why I like it. The truth is that these people that are getting things repossessed are living in nice houses and have all kinds of other luxuries that most people don’t. (At least not people who are making less than a hundred thousand a year) I have yet to see them go to a poverty stricken family and take away a $60,000 motorcycle. No, that motorcycle was parked beside a $100.000 boat hidden in a garage where the man worked. It seems that many people these days think that if they want something they can just take it and get away with it. Let me warn you: You touch my stuff and I WILL call the repo-man and his sister. You don’t want to mess with them.


Have a great day,
Greg

My 10 year old and you have lots in common.....those are all his favorite shows and last night he almost had a heart attack because he almost forgot to DVR it...you see he loves to watch it over and over!! Go figure!!

Sharon said...

lol! That sounds like a show my dad would like. We only get one tv station so the main shows we see are "biggest loser", "mama's boys", oh I'm not sure what else, because I rarely even watch it. I'd rather be reading great blogs like yours and learning something.

Have a great evening Greg!

We're hooked on football, and the Mentalist ~~~

There is no time left...

I like CSI, House and the Mentalist. Not too much into reality tv. But enjoyed reading your take on it.

Becky said...

I have seen cash cab and enjoyed it and I could watch animal planet 24/7 but my current fave is The Office. It is witty, quirky, awkward and just plain fun but probably not a show a good little Christian girl should watch, so don't tell anyone, k. ;-)

My Love enjoys cops and any type show that you described, plus stuff like cold case (the REAL detective/forensic shows)

I haven't seen repo man. I have a few shows that I like. I don't watch near the shows that I used to.

Hi Greg, I am back in blogging world. That show sounds right up my husband's alley. Lately, we are watching so many reality shows that I can't keep up with all of them (ha)

Em said...

Repo Man sounds like a show I could enjoy!

Scarlet said...

I love your last two lines...and no, Greg, I would never mess with you or your stuff! (I have a fear of large women in slinky outfits.)

I have never heard of this show, but I will have to look for it. For being a reality show, it sounds pretty honest and entertaining.

I haven't heard of this show. I'm more of CSI, The Unit junkie...and sadly yes, the homegirlz have me addicted to American Idol now. It's pathetic, I tear up when the people I like get booted off.

Monogram Queen said...

I can see where it would be entertaining!
My sis and her husband have a car lot in NC and they have had to repo a time or two. Interesting tales!

Monogram Queen said...

P.S. May I also add that *ahem* someone who watches the Real Housewives Of Atlanta with zeal could NEVER criticize your TV habits! *grin*

Edie said...

I have to agree with your reasoning for liking the show. I have to admit that's a cause I can stand up for! I hardly ever watch TV and mostly the stuff you mentioned ... and Myth Busters. I love that show. I would love to demolish all the stuff they demolish. :)

My boys were just telling us about cash cab. As for the large lady in form fitting clothes, EWWW! Piercings? "Gag me with a spoon!" as they used to say in the 80s, when I was already getting old. The networks don't have much any more.
