    Didn't know the new season started. Going to watch it tonight.

    Jarrett and good decisions don't go together at least in terms of the show. :)

    I liked the rig the young couple have now, I wish they'd show it to us a little more. Isn't that a new tractor for the big rig guy too? Seems to me it's been red in the past and now it's blue. I have no idea why I watch this show, it's as staged as "Operation Repo". The magician needed a slap, don't you think man?

    I like when the magician was levitating the crate you could see the thing around his neck and the strain on his face all hunched over lifting it.

    I haven't watched this episode, but in previous seasons it was blue.

    I hope Robbie and whatshisname weren't really just randomly stopping at restaurants trying to bum some waste oil. I know in my neck of the woods we have services that have contracts with restaurants for the grease. They treat it and then sell it as biodiesel. I'm not sure why a couple of people just passing through think they could just descend on anywhere and suck it up for themselves.

    I wondered about that too, one of the things it's also used for is making soap from that smelly nasty stuff.

    Bees - is that how they normally transport live hives, in an open flatbed?

    Seems like you would lose a ton of bees to the wind.

    I assumed it was going to be in a closed trailer. Crazy.

    They didn't put wire netting in between a few of the hives entrances probably for the effect so the bees could get out and buzz around. Better episode.

    What's with all the guest shippers? Are they just auditions so they have a bench in case one of the regulars asks for more money or something?

    Typical "M.O" for A&E. They did the same thing with Storage Wars, Property Wars, etc etc.

    MPR=Money, Power, Respect...really?

    They've already changed out shippers. Chris and Robbie are replacements for a married couple from Season 1. Chris and Robbie I like. The blonde morons were 1 step above MPR, but they both were terrible.

    How many trucks do Chris and Robbie have?

    Every new ep they are in a different vehicle.

    I seem to remember 3: A plain white pickup, a big grey one that takes the oil, and that awesome big orange truck/rig.

    If I had to take a guess the white truck scenes were filmed a long time ago and then they upgraded.

    Chris and Robbie look like they spend all their money on stupid-looking aftermarket truck parts from JC Whitney.

    Dear network execs: After your back to back episodes of BS, last night, my season pass has been cancelled. First you manufacture a contest between Roy and Robby followed by an episode that has Roy delivering some "mystery case" while a vagrant is sleeping in a doll house hauled by the bearded guy. It was just too much BS for me, and I'm out!

    Call me simple, but the show was plenty interesting to me when it was just about shipping strange things.

    And in this week's episodes, Chris claimed they have 4.
