TMZ: Dog ‘The Bounty Hunter’ Chapman’s show euthanized
FOX 31 ^ | May 21, 2012 | Richard J. Ortner

Posted on 05/21/2012 6:01:29 PM PDT by AmonAmarth

That dog don’t hunt—at least not on the cable network A&E—after Dog “The Bounty Hunter” Chapman’s television show was canceled after eight seasons, according to the celebrity gossip website TMZ.

Denver native Duane Chapman, better known as “Dog, The Bounty Hunter,” starred in the reality television program by the same name.

According to his website, Chapman is considered the “greatest bounty hunter in the world,” claiming to have captured 6,000 fugitives during his 27-year career.

I wonder if Beth will fall out in the final episode.

My wife says that is the only reason I’ve watched that show.

I’m glad to see him gone. His ridiculous outfit, pretend Indian or whatever the hell it was, was just too silly to take seriously. The whole bunch of them looked like they tried very hard to look tough. They looked like refugees from a comic book.

I sure hope not; with that much projecting mass at her age she’s likely to look like something out of National Geographic, ca. 1962.

The amount of time showing them clipping their plastic belt clips/snaps together went up as their audience went down.

I think he looked like a first-class clown with all that crap on his hair, ears, etc. Why he had to look like a goofus is beyond me.

The show had an aura like a fake wrestling cast of characters. Big turn off for me and I usually flipped the channel when the Dog show was on—just one mans opinion.

I don’t have anywhere close to the amount of money he has, and probably never will.

But I’m not trailer-trash like he and his family are either.

And, your comment “I’m sure your a much better person than he is.....” shows me what kind of person you are, too.

I read his book and he was a gang guy that has been through quite a hell in his past. Sounds pretty tough to me from his prior battles in life.

I watched the show once and thought it was done as a satire of real bounty hunters.

But when I saw they took themselves seriously then the whole thing was too clownish to watch ever again.

Yup in lived in Colorado. He did many of his “catches” in Mesa County and the City of Grand Junction. Last year he totally endearded himself to the staff of the Mesa County
Jail when he brought in a “catch” who he had pepper sprayed minutes before without doing anything for the “catch”.
There were a few other incidents with LEO’s that didn’t make the news. Bye, Bye Dog!

No harm towards them, but they always go after the poofters rather than hard criminals. So much drama for going after some girl who didn’t go to court? How about they go after some real criminals?

Exactly. I stumbled across it once while flipping through the channels and thought it was a low-rent ripoff of Reno 911. When I realized these clowns were serious, I changed the channel and never thought about it again.

Until now. Good riddance.

I was surfin’ one nite and landed briefly on this show. They were all zooming into position and charging out of their cars holding paintball guns without hoppers. Apparently, they wanted to look real bad a$$, so they got a bunch of tricked out Tippmann markers. I laughed and moved on. From that point forward spending no more time watching than it took to press the button.

I enjoyed the show. While the small timers were more common, there were quite a few episodes where more “harder” criminals made for much more excitement. I recall this one episode where they stumbled upon an entire identity theft ring, and they were just busting people one after the other. Not every episode was exciting, but there were a few that are worth owning on DVD.

I don’t get the Dog hate in this thread. Unfortunately, I think Dog leaned more Joel Osteenish in his Christianity, but at least he prayed and made it important to the family. He is also a self-made man, coming from literally nothing, a biker who did jail time who got into the bail enforcement business. Most people just die in their sins with that type of life.

Not too sure why anyone would call them ‘trailer trash.’ Not everyone of us had the good fortune of being born to a rich family with no problems. I come from a pretty impoverished background myself. Makes for stronger people, better than the yuppies who don’t know how to work for it.

The show should have been filmed in the Ozarks. They’d still be a hit.

Very eloquently put RC, I didn’t worship the show or the man, but my kids like it and I watched a few dozen episodes and I liked the man and his family. A little eccentric mabe, but geez they are not white trash.

Chapman,being a convicted felon,is prohibited from owning and carrying firearms. So, what exactly is all that crap he’s got strapped to his body, Paint ball guns and Star Trek phasers from Toys-R-Us? The fact that law enforcement would even allow him near an actual armed and fleeing felon equipped like that is just ludicrous.
