I pay very little attention to the drama that the producers induce into those "reality" shows including the Alaskan shows.  I watch them for the scenery plus seeing stuff that is out of the ordinary for me to see.  No other way would I ever see some of the equipment and methods that those guys use.  Educational plus entertainment.

Should change the show name to “Acts Men”.
I haven’t watched since the end of season 2. Too much fake drama to make ratings.

My problem with this and other shows like it, as MM says, the induced drama. Those of us who do stuff like this understand the dangers, but the general public does not, and as usual the producers feel a need to dumb it down and over stress somethings to make it 'good TV'. With this show in particular, all the screaming and cussing was a real turn off. I am not offended by the language, but the beeping was driving me nuts. I understand there will be some character changes, but that old skinny guy on the yarder is still back and I just can't stand him. He needs to have his attitude adjusted. I understand his son has passed away?
 I'll give it a try, but geez, this one is more like a cartoon show than anything you see on Saturday mornings. I do like crazy SHelby though.

First year was good. I learned a log about logging on the West coast. That first year was very educational.
I only last through 2-3 shows the second season.  :(

I'll watch this new version at least once to see if it reminds me why I quit watching it back when.

 I think I am in the same boat. My wife likes it, but she is a bit hard of hearing and has the TV up loud when I am trying to sleep down the hall. All the bleeping drives me nuts.

Oh, it's a show; I thought you were referring to me.
All my life, people have been calling me a "Horse's Axe", "Smart axe", "Dumb axe", and something about a "Whole". I know I'm a little hard of hearing, but I can read...

Your 'infringement' was at least as interesting and entertaining as the show.

I watched a bit of it one time.  I worked as a choker setter for a stint on high lead and yarder work in Oregon.  Those actions wouldn't have been tolerated on any siding I was on.
