Currently no different that Nosak Tree.
Is there a season in which they...actually work with timber? I tried the newest season, hoping my family could sit down and enjoy some axe/chainsaw work and it was awful, staged, and there was no timber work.
They prefer to throw their chainsaws over using them so they probably don't run anyhow.
first two seasons after that it's all down hill. I just stick to deadliest catch now, they still show people doing a very hard dangerous job. You can't stage almost an entire crew dying when a ship capsizes
I know this an old thread but when did this series turn bad? I've only watched it recently in UK, by purchasing the DVDs from Amazon. My wife just got me series 3+4 and it still seems to be reasonably good.... I'm not sure wherever is as much actual timber falling as in the first two series... When did the falling stop?
Sorry I only just caught up with @Nathan lassley 's last post. So it looks like series 1+2 are the only ones with decent tree work (climbing and falling), and it goes downhill from there on
Once JM Browning, Pihl, and Dwayne Dethlefs, and Mike Pihl left is when it really went down. It stayed interesting because of Shelby but then they brought on zitterkopf for two or three seasons which just killed the show.
Well I'll probably not buy anymore than series 3-4.
I'm currently halfway through Series 3.... and it basically seems pretty good...as a show since I don't really watch any TV. Me and the wife find J and J Smith (the Aqua Loggers) absolutely hilarious....both of them seem quite sharp and the shouting matches are fun
And yeah I find Shelby's swampland exploits pretty cool.
I guess that they stopped the falling because of insurance/risk etc. I remember in, was it series 2? the odd barber chair happening or nearly happening.....but I think that it's BS them stopping filming falling due to that. I mean logging is dangerous, period, show it like it is. And why the TV teams aren't prepared to take the same risks as the loggers is bad in my view....I mean plenty of journos go to war zones, and the odd stunt man/actor gets killed when things go bad....
Well that's my take....the TV teams just want a product where they can sell loads of advertising space....with minimum investment (i.e. pay+insurance) themselves
They rely on ratings. The problem is 300 million people that can't add the 2 digits in their IQ and get a consistent answer. You would like a documentary based informative show relevant to a trade? Good luck with that. Boring as hell to drink and smoke meth to.
