I am a Trutv fan. They have a lot to offer, in my opinion. Reality TV should be funny and Trutv understands that fact totally, I think. This channel offers up some funny shows like Operation Repo, Southern Fried Stings and so many other fun choices. Onboard for their second season is a show called All Worked Up. Let me tell you about it!
This show showcases repo workers, process servers, meter maids and more. What this funny reality TV show is all about is the funny, dangerous and exciting lives of people working in the public. Their jobs are hazardous, that is for sure. They encounter humanity at it’s worst. Noone wants to have a vehicle repo’d, a court summons paper served or a ticket awarded for bad parking. These are the people who do it everyday. Here is their story.
Meet Ron and Amy Shirley. They are the proud owners of the Lizard Lick towing Company. Gotta love that name and I do. They are located deep in Lizard Lick, North Carolina. Ron deals with the repos and Amy deals with the office. I still can’t decide which job is more dangerous. Ron has dealt with shotguns, fists, baseball bats and more while trying to do his job. I admire Ron. He is crafty, clever and he means to bring back the repo, no matter what. The what is what is so exciting. People tend to loose their minds when their car, truck, boat, bike, whatever gets repo’d. They know they haven’t paid but, still, they think they have the right. To get mad. To meet the action with force, cussing and fighting. They don’t. Ron, along with his very brave partner, Bobby Brantley, deal with it all. Then, often, the person will come down to the repo office, to see if they can bully them into returning the unpaid for property. Here comes Amy. Don’t mess with her. She is sweet but, tough as southern driven nails. On the last show I watched, an angry person bashed the Lizard Lick towing company’s glass door in. With a baseball bat. Ron looked right at the angry man and stated “Do I look scared?” No, he didn’t. I wouldn’t want to tangle with him. They soon left. Ron is a man who gets the job done. This show is exciting, funny thrilling and often frightening. It is worth my time, in my opinion. Must see TV. Try not to drop your popcorn. Yes, they even repo from naked people. It is a site to see.
Meet Byran McElderry, a New York process server. His exciting job is to put the court ordered papers into a certain person’s hands. While this may sound so simple, it is not. Byran has such a cool, calm and non threatening demeanor, I can’t imagine why most of these people who he is serving papers to react in such a rude and dangerous way. But, they do. From getting drinks poured on him to being pushed, shoved, hit and laughed at, not to mention the cussing, he weathers it all with a wry sense of humor. My favorite Byran McElderry line is “You must be out of your mind!” Yes, Bryan, they are. This well spoken and very cool mannered process server serves up really good entertainment also. He doesn’t really mean to. He is just being him. A man with a hard job to do. He does it well. You have been served. By the best, I might add. Well done. From serving rap bands who have not paid for recording equipment to serving exotic dancers, Mr. McElderry’s job is not boring. It is real, startling and I can’t believe what I see some people do. I also see a great acting future in Mr. McElderry’s far future. He is grace under pressure and true life personified. He is determined and he is a winner. I salute him here.
All worked up is on Trutv most Monday nights at ten p.m. and it airs right after one of my other favorite Trutv shows Operation Repo. All worked up is real, funny, thrilling, scary and, well, it shows people at their worst and some at their best. From meter maids getting blessed out for doing their job, ice cream dumped on them for issuing parking tickets to bouncers bouncing out the baddest, this show offers laughs and real fun. It is worth checking out. Be ready to laugh. You just have to. Please forgive me for any spelling or name errors in this article. I had a hard time researching this show. It seems that some have never heard of it. I hope to change that fact. I love All Worked Up. I bet you will, too. Check it out. You will enjoy.
