I saw the premier of the Deadliest Catch last night. Pretty intense between the Hillstrandts and Keith from the Wizard.

I like the little dig Johnathan through at Keith "Make sure you don't kill your brother this year by accident."

I can't stand Keith.

I hate trees and I hate crabs.

So I love these shows because they kill them both.
Its like sweet sweet murder by the Pot load or death by saw.

I giggle through entire episodes.

Sometimes.....i get aroused.




But seriously I like Deadliest Catch. I have not had a chance to see much of the Axe Men show yet. Just an ep or 2.

Yeah, i like 'em too. DC brings back memories of commercial fishing in AK.
It sucks how Deadliest Warrior is on the same time as DC though.

DC, AM & DW are the only shows i watch....well, that and TUF i must say.

I love the shows but I worked for the city I live in as a logger essentially and some of the shit they do on Axe Men is just so annoying to see them do. Like I know why they do it but it is still something they shouldn't be doing.

Can you give us examples? I never worked it but I know lots who have. But It would be interesting to hear what they do on the show in comparison to what you do when your out there and their isn't a camera on you.

Town I live in was built around the logging industry here in the north west. Figures you would be in Washington as well.

One for the crew I worked with is we don't carry axes anymore to pound wedges in we have hand sledgehammers. A guy caught the blade in his arm once cause the axe cam flying out of another guys hand.

Another is pulling in the turns. Two times in this last season they sent the chokers back down with a log still attached or someone trying to open the choker and had his hand caught. Usually the yarder is set up, at least where I worked, so they can see where the turn is landing.

Interesting.

I always wondered if they did things, or set up shots on those shows to make it look a little more dangerous.

Some of it like the Swamp Man having his weird cheap man scuba gear pump carbon monoxide down to him was a mistake but little things like having a tiny ass landing for Rygard seem slightly set up.

AxMen is just contrived drama. It soo freakin easy to see right through the scripting. It wasn't soo bad the 1st season but dam have they taken the fake drama to another level since last season. I read online, the opinions of professional loggers and they all concur AxMen is fake/drama bullshit.

Now Swamp Logger on the other hand is a pretty decent show, without the AxMen type contrived bullshit.
