    Pretty rough.... I have 2 of the lastest still to watch, but last week's with those 2 blonde chicks saying they can crate... and laughing it up. *EYEROLL* it's one thing for them to mention it and that's it but the stretched it out for a while, and then to think that their minor "flirting" got them to ignore the scuff marks? I agree with the other posters... I'm coming really close to bailing on this show too. The younger guy who says he's a great shipper... Really annoying as well.. (and not in an awesome way that Roy or Robbie and Chris were)

    Same here, I am about done. Up until the late set episode I thought Mark's truck was broken, he has not galled something for a long time.

    Only one of the three new haulers has hauled anything in the first 4 episodes they have been on.

    Isn't it ironic that by the producers "fixing" the show, they are actually turning away their audiance. They never learn.

    Their are enough strange things to ship out there.

    It's all crap at this point. I don't believe for a second that a builder of custom vehicles couldn't (they don't have a standard shipper?) or wouldn't drive it the few hours to their client and show them how it operates and instead hire and unknown and expect them to walk their client through the vehicle.

    I've been losing interest for a while. I would never expect someone I hire to ship something to be able to disassemble and reassemble it at the destination, there should be other "experts" at either end to do that.

    Or that a shipper would ever accept a clause that has a $500 an hour penalty for being late....

    yeah, losing Roy lost the show. It's not the same anymore. I give it another episode or 2 before I give up on it.

    It would have been this bad even with Roy. He was part of that mystery package debacle last year, clearly he was game for the setups too. He was an interesting guy in an interesting person vacuum. Too bad he's gone, but in any other situation he would have just been the weird stuck up 420 cat dude.

    This show's demise has nothing to do with Roy's demise. It was already circling the drain.

    Totally agree. I miss Roy but his absence isn't what is killing this.

    Done, the unrealistic shippers with their deadlines is ridiculous.

    I'm done too.

    Granted, Jen's failure to rent a refrigerated truck was idiotic, but did it not occur to anyone to cut the damn butter sculpture before she arrived if there was only a six-hour window? So many item breakdowns on this show needlessly wait until after the transporter arrives, but I guess it makes for good drama. :rolleyes:

    Done too. Loved it so much in the beginning. Not sure why they feel they have to muck up the formula. It is New Coke all over again.

    It seems to be the trend to increase the so called drama and or tension.

    Used to Love American Restoration, but now they spend more time on hijinks then actual restorations, same with Pawn Stars. Used to also like Bar Rescue, but now it is just a bunch of Taffer yelling at people.

    It looks like I'm damn close to following trend. I only watched 1 of the 2 new episodes last night. I just didn't want to be bothered. The extended stupid bidding part, the fact the new people are insanely stupid in general. I guess they ditched the 2 blond chicks? The replacement couple to the original isn't nearly there.

    I didn't think American Restoration was showing anymore. I used to watch that, but haven't in a long time.

    I actually thought the last 2 episodes were probably the most "normal" of the season so far. Not saying they were good but some of the others were more ridiculous. I'll tough it out one more week...

    Come back for at least the one with Roy in the title. Still stupid new guy, stupid stuff, but it's a nice, understated tribute to him featuring Jen. He would have hated it. I'll admit I teared up a little over the ol' bastard. :)

    I'm not sure I'm interested in this season past that.

    I did like the Roy tribute. That was sweet.

    It's also sad that when I saw the item come up, I thought Roy had already shipped those! Clearly I watch this show too much.
