Intense ride-along glamorizes a very tough job.

Great Show

DEA is a great show. People need to see that there are bad guys out there and that the good guys are coming for them.

Looks like DEA might not come back

I liked the show while it was on, but it looks like that might not be much longer. Check out an article on ticklethewire.com on the future of the show...

Great Program

DEA is a well produced show that depicts the real-life situations of being a DEA agent. While the show displays many drug dealers and the various narcotics that they sell, the overwhelming message is that illegal activity doesn't pay and you will eventually get caught. What I have a problem with though is how the descriptions says that "parents should talk to their children about why dealers are poor." Not all dealers are poor or from the projects. Take good long look into nice middle and upperclass suburban neighborhoods and peel back the white picket fence exterior and you can easily find drug dealers who are doing quite well financialy and want to make some extra dough from selling drugs.
