Bounty Hunter

Production halted on Dog the Bounty Hunter

duane chapmanDuane "Dog" Chapman is in a heap of trouble over some horribly racist comments he made. They're so bad that A&E has halted production on Dog the Bounty Hunter while the network investigates the matter.

Here's the story: The National Enquirer magazine has audio tapes where Chapman uses the 'N' word repeatedly and tells his son not to date black girls. Somehow, the magazine acquired a tape of a phone call between "Dog" and his son.

Chapman won't talk about it, but he did send his pastor out to calm down the media. Pastor Tim Storey, called "the pastor to the stars" by USA Today, said "Dog" cried for 30 minutes about it, saying "Can you believe, Tim, that I'm going to be put in the same category as Imus." Storey said that "Dog's" excuse was that he was mad at his son about his relationship with some girl.

Stargate SG-1: Bounty

Vala goes native in Kansas - while Cam tries to use his cell phone
(S10E15) Bounty is one of the funniest SG-1 episodes this season. The Orion Syndicate Lucian Alliance has put a price on SG-1s head, and plenty of bounty hunters want in. Vala was in rare form, Cam got a little action, and Daniel was saved by... a city bus. The show gets the plot out of the way pretty quickly, so we go to relax and watch each member of the team deal with their own personal assassin.

WE to debut new series: Wife, Mom, Bounty Hunter - TCA Report

Wife, Mom, Bounty HunterImagine something like Super Nanny meets Dog: The Bounty Hunter, and you've just about put together an entire episode in your head of WE's new reality show, Wife, Mom, Bounty Hunter, which hits the airwaves in April. Sandra Scott, a former wrestler (she played Tiffany Mellon from Gorgeous Ladies of Wrestling) juggles teenage daughter Sabree, six-year-old "baby girl" Ever-Skye, bratty husband Ron (who looks like he's 18 years old) and catches criminals. She's blonde, but you won't find me calling her stupid. At least to her face.

In the teaser for the show, Sandra says "Guys have their muscles, and I have ... other assets. I'll go to the door with my boobs hanging out and ask for help." That's her modus operandi, and it really seems to work, on the men at least. Go figure. I'm not sure if American is really ready for another show about bounty hunters, but at least she's a lot easier on the eyes than Dog. Plus, her bite looks like it would be a lot worse than her bark.

From the panel: Ron states: "I'm also an electrical contractor, I like to work with my hands." Sandy: "I'll say that you do!" Yow. I really want to take a shower now.

gemberling and gwinnAdult Swim has placed an order for an untitled series based on the Web series "Gemberling" from comedians John Gemberling and Curtis Gwinn. The Web series centered on a man who is sucked into the internet. The new series, a mixture of live-action and animation, will feature Gemberling as the man who gets sucked into the internet, and Gwinn as a bounty hunter sent in after him. The series originally ran as part of the Channel 102 site, and some of the shorts were also featured on FuseTV's Munchies.

Gemberling and Gwinn also perform as the comedy duo Cowboy and John. You can check out some of the original "Gemberling" shorts on YouTube.

Wedding, funeral for Duane 'Dog' Chapman

by Anna Johns, posted May 21st 2006 1:45PM
duane dog chapman; bounty hunterDuane 'Dog' Chapman, star of A&E's Dog the Bounty Hunter, married his longtime companion yesterday on Hawaii's Big Island. The couple decided to go ahead with their planned nuptials despite the death of one of Chapman's daughters, Katy Chapman, who died the day before in a car crash in Fairbanks, Alaska. She was only 23 years old.

Chapman says he gathered his remaining 10 children, including two he has with new wife Beth Smith, to discuss whether to go on with the wedding. They decided to go ahead- making the wedding a celebration of the couple and of Katy's life.

Making an awkward transition... 'Dog' wore white jeans to match his white vest and boots in the ceremony. The wedding airs August 8th on A&E.

My Name is Earl: The Bounty Hunter

by Michael Sciannamea, posted Apr 7th 2006 12:00PM

joy socks jessie with a left to the faceWho knew that Earl Hickey was such a stud muffin? Before his ex-wife Joy came along six years ago, Earl had an intense three-week relationship with Jessie (played by the excellent Juliette Lewis). While hanging out in the local bar, a pregnant and desperate Joy manages to steal Earl away. Later on, Earl and Joy end up becoming husband and wife.

Cut to the present, and Jessie, still working in the bail bondsman's offices, still lacking those front teeth, and apparently still angry over what happened, overhears that Joy never showed up for a traffic court appearance. Jessie decides to become a bounty hunter in order to bring her in, and trains intensely to the sound of the lost 80's classic, "Lunatic Fringe" by Red Rider. (This show continues to brilliantly use music at key moments.) She also gets new front teeth to go with her "Dog, the Bounty Hunter" look.

You're the man now, Dog

by Adam Finley, posted Jan 18th 2006 3:10PM
Dog the Bounty Hunter, which I like to think of as the Cops I don't feel guilty about watching, will return to A&E for a third season starting in February. While I never make plans to watch the show, every time I come across it whilst channel surfing I have to stop and check it out. I typically don't care for reality programming, but Dog himself seems to hearken back to the days of Mr. T and Hulk Hogan when tough-looking rogues punched out bad guys while reminding kids to stay away from drugs, respect their mothers, and drink plenty of milk. If Norman Rockwell were alive and today and tuned into how the human race stumbles through the 21st century, he would totally paint this show.
