I really wanted to watch this show on the Travel Channel for laughs. Seriously, I figured that it would show the stereotypical messengers, in a Quicksilver'esque vision. Or it would just be a long Lucas Brunelle video.
I DVR'd the first episode. Then I made the wife and kids watch it with me. I ended up liking it. It also allowed for a little dialog about driver/rider safety with the one kid I have who is in the process of learning to drive, which is always a positive thing.
What I think is great is that the show isn't only focused on riders doing stupid stuff, but dispatch, owners and rookies too. If you get a chance, you should really check it out. I was rooting for the one rookie (DIRT). When he lost his manifest and was sent home, my wife and I were yelling at him to backtrack to his last stop, he may have left it there and could have redeemed himself. But by just riding home, I think he kinda deserves to be fired.
