    Totally loved it-creative look at a really interesting profession. Interesting and fast-paced, never a dull moment, totally awesome filming and originality! I had no idea that bike messengering was so full of stress and in such high demand. Props to all who do this for a living, and especially the ones in the show. It's super awesome to get a feel for life in the big city on a bike. Totally exciting stuff! I love this show and it's my favorite right now. Other than The Office I'd say it's the best one TV currently. I can't believe how good and original this concept is. Great job, everyone!moreless
  • Not just what reality television should strive to be but all television.

    9.0
    In a sea of celebrity narcissism, baking battles and terrible fashion competition show rip offs, this reality show is a breath of fresh air. Real people with real passion trying to make in the world. There are no made up fake bad sitcom story lines, no divas yelling for attention, no contrived competitions. What you see is what you get. Intense stories, compelling characters, beautifully shot. This is what television should strive to be. More shows like this and the Kardashians might actually have to discover a skill set other than being annoying and willing to do anything in front of a camera.moreless
  • It's good to see what it's like to messenger in NYC, as I'm a messenger in DC. Content so far is pretty good, a little skeptical on a few moments legitimacy, but still a solid show.moreless

    While there were a few moments in the show that any courier working longer than a year would see as staged, the pilot was pretty solid. Moments like Greg pep talking the rookie would never happen on the first day or even week. Pep talks come when a veteran thinks that a rookie might stick around, which is usually after a winter, being struck/doored, or something of the such.



    As for the rookie forgetting his manifest, no one in the right mind calls his dispatcher and tells him that. First day or not. You either remember your picks/drops and recopy, get the same person to resign, or you go back and get it. It's so "rook-like" that it could even be staged.



    I really liked the amount totals at the end of the show, and I really enjoyed the narrator pointing out the architect rookie going in the hole with the hotdog. Overall, as a courier, I think the content of the show is great so far. Hopefully in the future we'll get to see veterans working with multiple double and triple rushes.moreless
  • Great show!

    Great balance between veteran messengers and rookies! Great personalities. Had me on the edge of my seat! Can't wait for next episode! Camera shots were amazing! How did they do that? I don't know how these guys that don't know the city can survive in this business. You would have to know the city like the back of your hand. I felt so bad when the guy had his wheels stolen. Guess it happens all the time. I really liked the veteran messenger who smoked while riding....that is just crazy! But he gave the rookies good advice. Hopefully they won't take up smoking too!moreless
  • Exciting. Raw. Entertaining.

    This show made me want to ditch my management gig, move to NYC and hit the pavement. I got on my bicycle for the first time in a while... First thing I realized is that these messengers have to be in monster shape to ride 30 plus miles per day. I did 20 and wanted to die. My legs hurt, my bum hurts and I wasn't dodging trucks, busses and NYC hacks all day long. But way beyond the physical strength and guts of the messengers, I really enjoyed the cast of characters. Especially since they are all real people, doing real work, trying to pay their bills and get home safe at the end of the day. This show is like Deadliest Catch on two wheels. Instead of crabs, it's deliveries. Instead of bad weather you have the streets of NYC. Instead of Captain Sig Hansen, you have "Rocket." It's fast-paced, exciting and I can't wait to watch the next episode.moreless
