    Thankfully Axmen is no more. Osha is the reason some of them said bye bye, then they get some guys like Zitterkopf on the show which is really bad for public perception. Nothing like seeing a drug addled fool yank his tooth out for the camera.

    I know people who think gold rush is real and I say tell me how a guy like Todd Hoffman doesn't make a dime in three or four seasons keep spending millions a season on new equipment.

    Hoffman's gear is all leased per his own admittance on the show. Still doesn't make him any less of a tool. I'm gonna get 5,000 ounces this year too! There's gotta be pay in my backyard somewhere - I just need to get the overburden off so I can sluice it. :laughing:

    He gets 400,000 a season from the show from what I could find. The reason "dakota" fred isn't on the show now is because Todd's crew was getting all the attention.

    That'd explain the fist fight this year. Fake drama.

    I do like watching the mining. I liked watching the logging on Axmen and hated the drama. Funny how we have shows about real work and they devolve into fake drama, yet there's no shows about office jobs which have more than enough real drama but no work worth watching (not that office people don't do work - they do).

    And thats why I miss dirty jobs. No drama other than the possibility of seeing mike rowe or the crew fall in poo.

    The mining show still plays? I haven't seen it in a couple years.

    Gold Rush just ended season 7 last week. Next up: Parker and Rick are taking a trek to follow the path the gold rush hopefuls took at the turn of the 20th century. Friday nights at 8 around here (CST). It's been interesting seeing Parker grow up over the years. I've been watching the show since the pilot premiered. Todd's still a jackass, and Parker is maturing into a better man.

    Dirty Jobs and Made in America remain high on my favorites list, along with How It's Made and shows like them.
