    Yeah, these 2 were the worst episodes yet. I will give it another week, but this show is heading downhill from here.

    What is it with A&E? Make it past a season or 2, and they clearly run out of original material, so they go to this garbage. Evidence: Every A&E reality show.

    How long before the bartering show is ruined?

    The mystery case was the dumbest thing I've ever seen. Who would pay someone to carry a case only to lead and follow them to their destination?

    And the 'attack' at the gas station was just way over the top.

    While we know a lot of situations are manufactured, I don't understand the logic behind going to this level. Are there really people out there that were on the edges of their seats wondering if Roy was going to be attacked?

    Wait. You don't think Roy's mystery case shipment was real? I was ok with the fake competition. Robbie and Chris had to know though that picking up a trailer from the impound lot probably meant there was a fine still associated with the trailer. Even if the fine was paid, the lot will charge a storage fee and unless the owner paid earlier in the day there would be some type of fee.

    Totally agree.

    I could argue they have already ruined the bartering show.

    This.

    My wife would make fun of me for watching it when it was about shipping things, but after last night's episodes she's just plain disgusted with me. I can't blame her. LAME.

    I didn't hate the bet episode as much as some did but I really thought the box episode was ridiculous. Could those soldiers or whatever they were supposed to be look any less like soldiers. Many just looked uncomfortable holding a weapon.

    Yeah I didn't even make it to Roy's mystery shipment. Jared's shipment here was the end of the line for me. The show has been getting increasingly contrived and the entertainment value has been declining because of it.

    Plus, he has a cat, that always makes me emotional. :eek:

    Although, if he really did have a history of heart issues, it was suicide to continue smoking.

    We dealt with that in my family this last year. :(

    Very sad, I would have guessed he was older than 49.

    I will definitely miss Roy. Show won't be the same without him.

    Loved Roy, he was an ass but knew his business inside and out. He as great for the show, none of the tryout guests they've had in the previous seasons stood out for me so he'll be sorely missed. Condolences to his family and kitty.

    Yeah, I think I remember his son coming out with him on a run, thinking about getting into the family business.
