Wannabe Toughguys

The guy sounds like a SOF wannabe poser. Look at how everyone dresses, and they tout his military service but he spend an enlistment in the Chair Force in a non-combat MOS. They keep spouting elite this and that, but how elite do you need to be to be an apartment security guard?

Is It Any Good?

The show highlights the various techniques bail enforcement agents use to capture people wanted by the law, which range from staking out and tricking people to reveal their whereabouts to kicking down doors and drawing large weapons in order to grab them. Thacker's bad temper, which often adds to the drama, is offered as a justification for some of the team's over-the-top behavior.

Granted, it's a dangerous job, and one that has the potential of ridding New Orleans of some of its criminal element. Those who don't understand the difference between law enforcement and bail enforcement might also be confused by what they see here. But fans who like this sort of celebrity crime fighting entertainment will not be disappointed.
