Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

"People don't like me 'cuz I write a lot of tickets," says a meter maid on the beat in episode three of Parking Wars, a series revolving around three departments comprising the Philadelphia Parking Authority. On this Best of Season One disc, we meet various PPA employees from the impound lot, the booting and towing division, and the ticketers describing to the camera how difficult it is for them to "do their jobs" while citizens curse and insult them. Meant as a comedic reality show, Parking Wars is funny at times when, for example in episode five, two ladies from Florida flirt with the impound lot cashier then turn against him when he refuses to give in. Like the Jerry Springer Show, Parking Wars is cast with real characters who seem oblivious to the workings of daily life. But ultimately, aggravation rather than sympathy may arise for Sherry in the booting department, Martin, the tow-truck driver, or Maria an impound lot officer as they justify perpetuating a bureaucracy that most urban citizens find mandarin and corrupt. The show's trope, to illustrate how furious average commuters get with these PPA employees, gets old quickly. Over the course of several episodes, one feels the strain that these employees endure. Though it is marginally interesting to learn the labels applied to law-breakers by the PPA, such as those "heavy hitters" who get towed instead of booted once they owe over $700, it is mostly irritating to see people getting city paychecks to sneak around issuing tickets. It seems an odd premise to make a television show highlighting what many people find extremely annoying. --Trinie Dalton

Product Description

The top episodes from the new hit series showcases the hilarious highs and lows in the lives of meter maids.

They are the people we love to hate, and never before have they been so fascinating. You know they ve got you when you find a ticket tucked under your windshield, a yellow boot clinging to your car s wheel, or when you can t find your car at all.
Making drivers wheels spin is all in a day s work for the men and women of the Philadelphia Parking Authority from parking enforcers to tow truck drivers, the PPA crews are fearless and funny as they get the job done. Intense, humorous, and always emotional, PARKING WARS is an exclusive behind-the-scenes ride with the people of the parking authority as they manage the chaos of every driver s nightmare parking!

From square-offs with irate citizens to Greek Week mayhem and women who try to flirt their way out of fines, PARKING WARS: THE BEST OF SEASON ONE features the top eight episodes from this traffic-stopping, uproarious series.

If you loved the show on A&E, you'll love this DVD set. It's an opportunity to people-watch -- in a box! Can't go wrong with that!

5.0 out of 5 stars Parking Wars-Best of Season 1 March 16, 2012
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I enjoy this show very much so I knew that I would like this DVD. I wish they would have made the whole first season though. Hopefully the first season will come out in the future. If you like Parking Wars, you won't be disappointed with this DVD.

Format:DVD
Shows what happens to your car when you don't pay your parking tickets! Interesting characters on both sides. Amazing to me that people don't want to take responsibility for parking where they do. You'll hear a lot of excuses on this show!!

I like it. Show is more of less the same every time, so this is really all you need to get a taste of it. If you like what you see here, you may want to watch the entire season, although it's pretty much the same thing each time.

5.0 out of 5 stars True to life July 29, 2008
Format:DVD
Prior to becoming an enforcement officer myself I watched nearly every episode of this show; it's hilarious and, as I now know, very true to life. A large number of friends were also watching the program and enjoyed it immensely. We're eagerly waiting for season 2.
As to the DVD offered here- I can't say much because it hasn't arrived here yet and at 154 minutes a lot of programming has obviously been eliminated so I've set my expectations low. I would have much preferred a complete season offerring rather than someone else's idea of "Best of...."

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Show I Never Thought I'd Like
Oddly addictive, unbelievably funny. Tickets, tow yards, and car booting... Who knew it could be such brain candy?!? Try season 5, double episode 63-64 to understand why.
