    Roy was probably the best shipper on the show. He was arrogant, but he did back it up a number of times so for that I give him a pass. Most shipments he would spend extra money for lumber and supplies to make sure it was secured. I am sure he factored that in to his bids but I am sure a number of others did not actually bid on those items due to having to come up with more creative ways to properly transport the shipment.

    What a shame. I liked him on the show.
    He will be hard to replace.

    RIP Roy

    Season 6 :eek: episodes just aired yesterday. I had forgotten about Roy's passing until at the end of the second episode they had the final screen with In Memory to Roy Garber. I am still enjoying the show, its is one that I can have in the background while I work on other things as I mainly like seeing the odd things people are shipping then the rest is more or less background noise.

    They did the In Memory of after the first episode as well. It was sad to see him again, because it reminded me how bad the show will be when he is off it. They keep trying to find new people to add, and they always stink. Replacing Roy will be tough.

    I missed it. Like I said earlier good one for the background as I work on other things.

    I am with everyone else it will be impossible to replace Roy. He was cocky and arrogant, but he backed it up (unlike Jarrett).

    I'm curious as to how they are going to handle Roy's death. I hope they don't ignore it. He deserves more than just the "In Memory" thing.

    Yeah, I FF through the episode pretty quickly yesterday.
    I noticed Robbie and Chris were gone too.

    Disappointed they couldn't even do a two minute segment on remembering Roy. He deserved more than the "in memory" card last week.

    I guess I haven't gotten in to the futher episodes yet. the last one I saw did have Robbie and Chris in it, but it showed "in memory of Roy Garber" You know... we don't hear Roy's last name at all, they could have put a picture of him under it.

    I dislike the replacement's I've seen thus far. Those two blonde chicks are painful to watch. I'd rather another awesome and abrasive person like Roy.

    The newest episode this week still had Marc, Jenn and Jarrett but added a new couple and a female with what looks to be a big rig who thinks she is sexier than she really is.

    Almost in...
    If I have a plane to ship I'm certainly not letting the truck driver take it apart.

    ok....I'm really close to bailing on this show. The producers have managed to f*ck up what used to be a good show.

    I don't need made up crap like having to take a plane apart or getting calls in the middle of a haul to pick up random crap just to make some fake deadline.

    I think this show died with Roy.

    I don't mean to Threadcrap but I've watched this show from the first and hate the direction it has taken.

    I thought the whole thing with Jenn and the urban assault vehicle in last night's episode was laughably bad and very set up. There's no way a company selling those would let someone who knew nothing about it deliver it to one of their clients. Beyond stupid.

    I agree. I loved the show up until the last few episodes. They are really stretching it to create fake drama and it is annoying.

    I'm giving it one more week and if it isn't better I am done.

    Jenn with the vehicle was a joke. Of course all the defensive buttons are going to be unlabeled and she is going to hit every one of them at the client's house - right after they mention that the client doesn't want to disrupt his neighbors.

    I think Chris and Robbie bailed just in time.

    The show really took a turn with the Roy secret package thing last year, not sure how much longer I can bear to watch.
