How can you not love Dog the Bounty Hunter? Its fantastically
magical. It used to be my favorite 'white trash in trouble' show was COPS but
Dog destroys COPS magic formula by turning it inside out and multiplying the
pure joy of watching white trash getting busted because on DOG the white trash
are also the hunters. That's right twice the white trash! Dog the Bounty Hunter
is truly a very special show.
Duane "Dog" Chapman and his glorious mullet lead the cast
of characters which include his comically huge breasted large bellied wife
Beth, who's attempts at dressing sexy are as visually arresting and comical as
Dog's beautiful mullet, also you have Baby Lyssa, Dog's young daughter, his two
sons, Leland and Duane Lee, and Dog's 'Brother' Tim. Together they make up the
most historically white trash crime fighting team ever formed. It's watching
these Hoosiers chase criminals with their cell phones, high
powered flashlights, air rifles, and bear mace that you will find the most
captivating. The criminals come in a distant second to Dog and his teams 'white
trash crime fighting team' dynamic.
The back stories of the team are fascinating as well..,
Duane "Dog" Chapman's criminal life ended when he was on a
drug deal in 1976 with a fellow gang member. While he waited in the car his
partner killed the drug dealer which got Dog sentenced with first degree murder.
For his role he served 18 months in prison. While he was locked up his then
wife LaFonda divorced him and married his best friend. Dog was inspired to
become a bounty hunter by an incident in prison where he tackled an inmate who
was attempting to escape before the guards could shoot him and it was also
enticing that being a bounty hunter was a job that required no real training
and one that would let him rock out his fantastic mullet. Dog has been married
five times and has twelve children.
Many things have threatened to end this great shows run along their
8 seasons and 230 hilarious episodes. In November of 2007 Dog's son Tucker sold
a tape of a phone call with his father to the National Inquirer where Dog
repeatedly used the king of all racial slurs to describe his sons black
girlfriend. A&E being the class act network that they are immediately
slapped Dog's wrist and put his show on hiatus for a whopping 4 months in
punishment. And in season 7 Dog was allegedly shot while trying to capture a
fugitive. However since Dog, his son Leland, and the bail bondsman they were
working for, Bobby Brown all had different stories and Dog couldn't provide the
film of the incident that his crew allegedly shot all charges were dropped
against the fugitive who is currently suing Dog.
As you can
clearly see life isn't easy with such a great mullet but thankfully Dog has
pushed on so I can continue to get new
episodes of this hilarious show. Keep rocking that mullet Dog and handing out
your own brand of white trash justice, advice, free cigarettes and rides to
jail. Beth, you keep squeezing those ridiculously huge cans in tiny lacy and
bedazzled tops for all of our amusement. Baby Lyssa you keep 'The Joker's'
legend alive with your tribute to his mouth. Stay trashy Leland, Duane Lee and
Tim while you watch that grand old mullet's back because we need all of you
guys at Dog the Bounty Hunter to bring your white trash hilarity into our
living rooms episode after episode.
