It's so teeeedious <wail>...... and DH records it.... for crying out loud!!
Is there a worse programme??? Personally I doubt it as it's essentially the same story every episode.....
Driver .. "OOOH look, there's ice, better be careful!!"

Then endless re-caps of what the drivers have said/done/encountered.

My DH loves it too hmm

I could watch one series of it, but talk about repetative on any more.

They've just had one where they're in India, unfortunately grin we missed it grin

The lass in it has got balls as big as westminster abbey though.

AuntyPickleBottom - you do know you're mad don't you???
canyou - "Trawlermen" - I get the accents being Scottish etc..... BUT, it's tedious!! I DO apprecaite how dangerous it is being a trawlerman, I really do, and I appreciate the fish I eat, but c'mon!!

Ice Road Truckers is marvellous - I won't hear a word said against it.

How about Axe Men? (or whatever it was called)

AuntiePickleBottom Sat 18-Dec-10 00:19:27

mad me mmm no lol

i find it intresting

backwardpossom Sat 18-Dec-10 00:24:10

Oh I love Trawlermen (but then, I know quite a few of the lads that are filmed - I live quite near the Broch, so it's funny for me to watch them).

Mowiol Sat 18-Dec-10 00:25:40

Oh Gawd.... don't get me started on Axe Men!!! Utterly, utterly awful. If I hear any more about "yarders" I'll die!!
Or those swamp loggers.... WTF??

AuntiePickleBottom Sat 18-Dec-10 00:26:58

much better than corrie imo (awaits flaming )

cece Sat 18-Dec-10 00:27:38

Those loggers on the boat that were after the rare wood that had been underwater for 50 years crack me up. Sooo funny!

backwardpossom Sat 18-Dec-10 00:28:05

There should be a 'flame' smiley.

I love ice road truckers and the fisherman one and the Eddie Stobart one.

Mowiol Sat 18-Dec-10 00:29:27

cece Sat 18-Dec-10 00:31:27

Indian road truckers??? Want to iplayer it!

Mowiol Sat 18-Dec-10 00:33:12

<sniffs> .... well, I don't watch corrie either.

(actually I will admit to watching the Omnibus to find out who died....Ashley, WTF?? ... he was so lovely).....harrumph ... me, watch Corrie?.... never!!

Mowiol Sat 18-Dec-10 00:35:09

cece .... don't think it's BBC for Ice Road... so no iPlayer?? That's only BBC right??

cece Sat 18-Dec-10 00:40:40

Oh I didn't know that! Dam history channel isn't on freeview, so won't be able to watch it...

BitOfFun Sat 18-Dec-10 00:45:58
