Got Cheese?

You know what good cheesey tv is: TV that you know you shouldn't watch and know you shouldn't like but you get sucked into it anyhow. Good cheese is TV that you watch despite the fact that you feel a little guilty for watching something this dumb.

Dog The Bounty Hunter is Good Cheese.

The guy, and his wife, pictured above, dress like something out of a 1970s Heavy Metal band, live in Hawaii, and capture "criminals". I use the word "criminal" in quotations because in the episodes I've watched, they have yet to actually bring in someone dangerous, but nonetheless they dress and act as if they're going to war every time they go out to round up the jaywalker or purse-snatcher in question.

You really won't believe how cheesey it is until you watch it for yourself.

The show is on A&E and they run it pretty frequently, lately on Tuesday or Wednesday nights. The episode that is my personal favorite, The Godfather of Waikiki, will be aired again on September 7th at 8:00pm. (And yes, I did have to go look the listings up to write this, amazing that I do research for this crap, eh?)
I don't want to ruin it for you, but Dog has to bring in a fugitive that they refer to (repeatedly) as "The Godfather of Waikiki". Sounds dangerous don't it!

The Village Idiot, bringing good cheese to the masses since August, 2005.

LOL, Oh man am I busted. Now the Lumpy hasn't had television in his home for the better part of a year now but before he did and when he goes on vacation somewhere this is one of those shows that somehow finds its way onto the TV and stays on. I so wonder what some of these guys did too end up on the Dogs hitlist. What is their criminal record like anyways as I have yet to see one of them do anything other than go "Yeah you caught me" and walk away meakly. The man doesn't even carry a gun and he has TV crews with him. Heck I'd give running a try if I was a hardened fellon. Wouldn't you?

I watched an episode of Dog and even though it was cheese, I couldn't turn it off!

I'm unsure that I'm desperate enough to watch this show, but I remember seeing it on the TV Guide.

I praise the heavens that there is an ocean separating him from the rest of us ~snort~

You're right on the money. I'm ashamed, but addicted. I found out the other day that "The Dawg" actually ended up in my little town of Greeley Colorado chasing some bail jumper.
