A&E Home Entertainment was gracious enough to send me a preview screener of one of their latest Dog the Bounty Hunter DVD titles, Taking it to the Streets. This DVD is a special collection of episodes form the series.
If you’re a Dog fan, the four episodes on this DVD are classic, fun Dog episodes.
In case you did not know, Dog The Bounty Hunter has been cancelled. So this could be one of the last new DVD titles you might be able to snag.
On Taking it to the Streets, the episodes include
- The Ice Man (Aired on 6 October 2010), [Dog, Beth and the Chapman clan track a meth dealer and his pregnant girlfriend in Colorado]
- Trouble in Paradise, (13 October 2010) [In Hawaii, they're in pursuit of a fugitive that leads to one of their midnight raids.]
- Mano-a-Mano (22 December 2010) [Dog squares off with a family determined to protect a runner in Colorado.]
- The Comeback Kid.[Finally, Dog masterminds a risky hoax involving the felon s family in an attempt to bring him to justice.]
Each episode has the classic neighborhood investigation, chasing tips on their quarry from one location to the next. The occasional obstinate neighbor who decides to get in the way of the team, to keep them from doing their job, and what not. It was amazing to watch a paralyzed man throw himself down in front of the Dog’s truck. Dude… really?
We also get to watch Beth play soccer mom, as she pulls out her picnic supplies and makes sandwiches for the gang on a late night raid.
When the perps go straight after their run-in with Dog, we get updates. Though there aren’t many of those.
Dog the Bounty Hunter: Taking it to the Streets is compelling for the fan of the series because it highlights some of the more challenging cases. Or if anything, gives potential fans a taste of the 8-season series, and why it lasted 8 seasons.
Did You Know that Dog The Bounty Hunter was originally shown on a show called “Take this Job,” and was popular enough to be spun off from that series? What’s interesting is the human aspect of the Dog series.
No matter who it is, we get to learn a little about their past and Dog focuses on what, in their past, could have caused the to go awry. Beth and Dog always have a very understanding approach after the capture of the perps and try to talk some sense into them and/or point them in the right direction.
I don’t think I could be that understanding.
