    Does anybody watch these shows?

    Caught Red Handed

    Operation Repo

    Hardcore Pawn

    Lizard Lick Towing.


    These are so obviously fake. Really, got to know if anybody watches them, if they enjoy them and if they realize they're fake. I watched an episode of operation repo. It was entertaining. I watched the second one, something's fishy, by the time I saw the second repo in the second show it was obvious it was fake, then I can't see the entertainment.

    wait, it took you two shows to realize that operation repo was fake? the show with the jew pawnbrokers swindling the negros had potential, but it's so obviously fake and scripted this season it's embarrassing

    The repo show is hard to watch.

    naw man, I love real noodling but these dudes had obviously build their own pond/lake with "natural" brush piles and holes for the fish to live in. They bring in people who have never been fishing and let them noodle. It sucks.

    Yeah the first one was pretty normal. Now I see an advert for an upcoming episode and it's rediculous. They were showing a sumo wrestler running out to protect his car and the fat repo dude and him start bumping bellies and sumo wrestling. Best part was the guy happened to be in his sumo uniform.

    National Geographic and Green network are good they're like History used to be before it was rednecked.

    haha that fuckin show's unreal.. I tripped out on it within the first ten minutes

    okay I just saw the commercial on the History channel.. mud cats I think it's called.. It sounds like that Bill Dance fishing show where he puts his boat in these tiny bass ponds and acts like he's out on some lake, only in every shot he's about 30 feet from shore, catching 8 lb bass every cast

    I watch Hardcore Pawn, despite the obviously fake story lines with the dad and son -- the poor folk seem to be real, and amuse me

    I also watch Storage Hunters, which is also obviously fake -- once I accepted it was all a set up, I enjoyed it -- I initially hated it

    Those towing shows are unwatchable -- you have to ask yourself why anyone who is getting their car repossessed would sign a release -- obviously they wouldn't

    I saw pics of her walking around free, so she must be an actress

    The channel was pretty good when it was Fox Reality -- they replayed a lot of old shows, and had some interesting new ones
