Nobody dies. But Alex can't remember his last name had too stop mid season and go into hospital and ended up going into a critical state. Other than that nobody in the programe died.

Its just the History Channel trying to hype the show up. Plus they say at the start of every episode "i think its every episode" Who will survive. As in who will surive the full season and not quit.

2nd season?
Alex got sick and didn't finish the season, he didn't die though.

If your talking about a third season, I havent heard anything about it.
(or if there will even be one...)

Yes, it is I'm afraid.

It really is a terrible show, they are always getting hurt and ill yet and say they need to get back to base as they are "all alone" in their truck...they probably have a team behind each truck filming it all with medics, food...etc.

a world full off money grabbing bastards. All this show is, is showing people how these guys do one of the most dangerous jobs in the world by transporting goods and mining equipment out to the mines in the ocean. In my opinion it's a good show but everyone has different tastes.

Next thing you know we'll have Retirement Home Janitors. T.V. Shows have turned into complete shit... It's depressing.

The show isn't really THAT bad. I mean, granted they have medical and whatnot for the film crew, so of course it'll go with the truckers too. I mean, ok, one or two episodes I can see, but season 2 now? That's a bit too much. It does give you a feel for what they go through though.

That Meter Wars show or whatever it is, the show about the meter maids, I guess in New York? Never really paid attention to the location. But, regardless, it's a pretty funny show when they are either verbally or physically assaulted, or dealing with the mentally inept like I had to on a daily basis. Now it's just random ineptitude.

BUT, I think I'll stick with Dirty Jobs and Myth Busters, thank you very much. And that other show on now about the oil workers? I forget the name. But that show isn't that thrilling either. Same goes with the show about exterminators now. I WOULD watch it if it were the VexCon people that appeared on Dirty Jobs. Somebody dropped the ball...

I've comprised a list of possible "true to life" television programs that other's may find interesting.
- Dirty Pipes (septic waste management individuals)
- Rising Wood (Amish barn builders)
- Meat Beat (meat specialized FDA workers)
- Old McDonalds (farmers)
- Looney Bin (insane asylum workers...actually damn, that might BE rather interesting...hmm...)

I had a couple more ideas, I'll post clever names when I come up with them, if I care enough about it. Soon we'll all be watching things such as children eating cereal and it'll have a higher rating then football. This is why the only reality TV I watch include police, police beat downs, and morons being physically hurt with a side of humorous commentary.

Not only did the History Channel go to shit with this series, but then it created Ax Men. I actually like watching the other things, such as Modern Marvels, but there reality shows are garbage.

With a diet consisting of greasy truck stop food, big gulp coffee and crystal meth, shouldn't the question be who will survive?

Good one! Because playing video games is any better for your mental health. It sure shows it though. Making up those statistics on the spot must have really been challenging for you.

On another note, I actually like this show. Shows like this are interesting to some people. If they aren't interesting for you, just get the hell out of this thread. You're not contributing anything to this thread at all. You are, on the other hand, wasting X360A's bandwidth by showing that you are a narrow minded individual.

And just so you know OP. No one is ever going to die in these shows. Even if someone does die, they'll just cut out all the scenes where they died. Even though the people who created the show are in it for the money, they won't use someone's death to make more money. Come to think of it though, the only show that has showed the death of someone is Deadliest Catch. Haven't seen any other show that showed someone dying.
