Dog The Bounty Hunter!
Like they say, you can run, but why? If you have Dog on your trail, you better give up peacefully or you’ll get tazed, gassed and a few stern lectures from Dog and or Beth Chapman for your troubles. To be honest, it’s a hoot to me that they go through all that trouble to catch some of these guys (or gals) and then the runners get a talking to, as if, from the caring parents they never had! I’d never want to run from this family, because you know you’re going to get a lecture when it’s all said and done!
Coming out June 12th is a special edition of the series, Dog the Bounty Hunter, where we get a 4-episode arc of the Chapman clan chasing down:
- A meth dealer and his pregnant girlfriend through the high plains of Colorado;
- A pursuit of a dangerous fugitive that will lead them through the jungles on their way to a midnight raid in Hawaii;
- Dog squares off with a family determined to protect a runner with more than a decade’s worth of trouble;
- And Dog plots out a hoax involving a family, in the hopes of catching a runner.
“As the intensity of bounty hunting begins to take its toll on the Chapman family, and Dog and Beth are struggling to keep the posse together, they have – in this special volume — some of the most adrenaline fueled, heart-pumping chases and catches to date!”

In small towns, and along America’s back roads, treasures are waiting to be uncovered— valuable relics from history that are hidden in junk piles, buried in barns and stacked in garages. And, as you might imagine, it takes experts to find these treasures – and turn rust to riches. In AMERICAN PICKERS, a HISTORY® fan favorite going into its fourth season, follow two of the most skilled “pickers”— Mike Wolfe, owner of Antique Archaeology, and his business partner, Frank Fritz— as they hunt down objects with historical, collectible and pop culture value that have been long forgotten by their owners. Will they find a $325,000 motorcycle or a rusty old weather vane? Find out with AMERICAN PICKERS: VOLUME THREE.
Across eight treasure-strewn episodes, the duo explore a century-old amusement park, pick their way through a geodesic dome and after years of begging, finally allow the office-based Danielle to get in on the action in episodes such as “Laurel and Hardy”, “Mike’s Breakdown” and “What’s in the Box?”. And, along the way, viewers will meet people whose own stories open a fascinating window into American lives and history.
