No, not the ice cream van!

If you're tired of watching "Lizard Lick Towing", this series might be more your style. "Operation Repo" is based on a similar concept: re-enactments of supposedly real-life car repossessions, featuring amateur actors. There the similarity ends. In this series, the repossession team is multi-ethnic (one of them is a Rasta!) and the action takes place in California rather than the Southern backwoods. The repossessed cars include ice cream vans, bookmobiles and Zambonis. Unsurprisingly, the characters driving them are absurd in ways only Californians can be. Did I like "Operation Repo"? Naaaah. Not really. But, as I said, if you're tired of the Old South, welcome to the hinterland of Hollywood... :D
