It's along the same lines as every other show on Discovery; take some people doing their regular job and add some dramatic situations through editing and forced scripting.
The fat guy that owns the show talks down to everyone, I'd tolerate him for about ten minutes before asking him to get the hell away from me with his pedantic speaking. Also, that guy is the KING of Chicken-Wing. I'm not sure if the USMC taught him how to put his shooting elbow as close to his noggin as possible, maybe things were different back then.
The shows production quality is, like everything else on Discovery, pure crap.
Discovery channel needs to "discover" a new format for shows I'm tired of the "WATCH IDIOTS ARGUE WHILE AT WORK" stuff.
Some of his guns look interesting but I wouldn't purchase a firearm from a guy that chicken wings and talks down to everyone.
Also, he's a LEO of some sort or another, so that doesn't get him many points from me either.
Redneck TV at it's best.
But you HAVE heard of us.
Sorry brother didn't mean to be so harsh in my review...
I'm sure that Discovery makes you guys act a certain way in the show for it to be interesting. The thing is, they gear it to people that aren't that into guns. If you showed some shooting techniques each episode, or did a few minutes on safety, or anything instructive, I think it'd attract people that want to watch more than "Days of our Lives" in a gun shop.
Best of luck with the show and the business!
Foot removed from mouth
I think your review is rather spot on. I also quit watching because the quality of the show sucks. If its on and there's nothing else on, and the weather stinks, I'll watch it. Aside from that, I'm not really excited to see the show, like I am with "The Walking Dead" or "Sons of Anarchy".
Discovery really does a lot of injustice to multiple industries with these manly dramas, but they seem to be working and getting viewers. Hell, Doomsday Preppers makes 95% of the prepping community look completely nuts. We complain, but we're the minority of TV viewers. I'm guessing most of the mindless mass enjoys this crap.
They don't care about the details of the gun build, or what type of polymer the 22 bullpup kit was built out of, or what type of actuator was used to fire the remotely fired M-16's in that Porsche. They just want to watch some shit blow up and feel slightly more manly about themselves. Heck, they probably don't even actively shoot.
The shows we want and crave... they simply don't pull the viewers. I still crave a more HARDCORE zombie show. I want to see the outbreak spread from subject 0, and I want to see it with much less romantic drama than TWD displays.
