They were all cargo that had to be carried at the time of the 8th season debut Delivery war, A reality TV show aired on A & E on Tuesday night. The show has a new format and a new cast, both of which prompted some negative comments on the show’s Facebook page after the first episode of the new season aired.

Shipping Wars debuted in 2012, spanned seven seasons, and finally attracted about one million viewers per episode from 2014 to 2015. I used the online reverse auction site uShip to connect the shipper and the driver.

The season, which began on Tuesday night, did not use uShip and there was no competition between carriers to load. There is also a new cast.

In that first episode, a flatbed named Natasha had to pick up a 160-foot-high radio tower in Colorado and deliver it to Texas. It was loaded onto her trailer by an older farmer who had been using it for years to send television signals to his rural farm. Only after it was loaded she found that it was certified as oversized and had to be scrambled and paid an additional fee for permission.

She said the package was “a little harder than it should be,” but it was delivered just over 30 minutes over the requested time, making a profit of $ 4,750.

Also on Tuesday night’s show, hotshot husband and wife teams Dwight and Taisha were tapped, with a large replica of the Incredible Hulk cartoon character and four teenage mutants Ninja Turtle weighing over 300 pounds. We have delivered four oversized models. each. The two struggled to load them and worked on tarping and maintaining the tarp. This led Tyesha to say, “I hate this tarping.”

Many who saw the first episode of the eighth season weren’t impressed, and it puts it calmly. Some viewers’ comments are as follows:

“It’s definitely not as good as the original. You probably won’t see it much. It’s very disappointing,” said truck driver Cory Spinelli.

“They have stopped the war. They must have just started a new show called shipping,” Rachel Lion added.

“The new Shipping Wars are the worst. The old cast was much better. They showed a good show and ruined it,” wrote Jean Somerset.

Jeffrey Gobery added, “I just turned on the new shipping war. I watched it for 5 minutes. I turned it off. I will never watch it again.”

Craig Nistrom writes: “Well, this won’t last that long. It’s terrible. I can’t see a new cast. I need Jennifer, Jarrett, Mark, or someone from the original cast.”

Kenny Pearson said, “This hasn’t cut it so far. I’m watching the reruns and show style of the old crew.”

From David Castillo, “Yes, I thought I liked it … no!”

Luciano Gera said, “I’ve given a chance to a new shipping war, but I don’t see another episode. What about a war where shippers have no interaction? It’s as if they don’t know each other.” , Why does Tamara have to yell so much?!?!? “

Tricia Farr is more philosophical, “Things change! Just like life! Well, it’s a show, people !!!!

But Bradley Lara said, “(I) don’t let people like it. It’s almost the same as the old people and doesn’t make fake bids. It’s a great show.”
