It really does amaze me how stupid criminals can be. You’d think they’d learn from their mistakes or even the mistakes of people around them. Well thankfully that’s the not the case for the cops of northern New Jersey in Jacked: Auto Theft Task Force – a new reality show for A&E that already looks to be a promising hit, and may be the natural successor to Dog.

They call themselves “The Wolf Pack”, and that’s apparent from the first moment of the hunt. The call comes in, the chase is on and the adrenaline is pumping as they circle their prey and get the job done. They’re a well managed and executed team that take down every type of criminal from your low end common car thief to your more serious offenders that jeopardize lives around them.

This show is fast paced and souped-up like the SUV’s they drive. As a viewer I enjoy the thrill of sitting back and watching each case develop from the tipped off stolen car to the bitter end of the take-down and find of the mark all the while getting some insight into the minds of officers that aren’t your typical beat cops. They work in the dead of night, the roughest areas and they take pride in it one car at a time.
