This show is getting more pathetic each week we watch! We come from 5 generations of loggers and if anyone of them acted like these idiots they would not keep a job for 5 minutes. Much less get rehired every week like Gabe whats his name. COME ON! There has to be more than just one guy to run the landing in the whole state! Why do they keep bringing back the same dopes?? Gabe is not any better than the Bozos he hires... including his dad. Bring back the Browning crew. For the most part there were no drama queens working for him. The guys doing the swamp logging are even worse. I find myself laughing (and then getting furious) at their in-bred ways. I have just about given up on this show. Shelby Stanga is a pretty real seeming man. He does not puff himself up for the cameras and talk about how great he is like the other freaks who do the swamp logging. Why is everybody their "son"? Ithink they should all go to a REAL logging site and see how people should act! I will not give this show any more of my time! Goodbye!
Like Pawn Stars, This is a nother predictible Dud. Choreographed and phony. In one episode you see aguy shooting a bow at one of the aqua loggers. Todays TV is bombarded with useless reality shows. History Chanel is renowned for phony shows with language unfit for young children.
If you have not seen one of these Ax Men shows then you will find it a refreshing change of pace. Ax Men follows the work and lives of several lumberjacks or timberfallers. The problem I have with this particular show is that it become repetative after about three or four shows. Once I've seen a tree fall and dragged up a mountain, how many times can I see it before I become bored? About four shows apparently. Also this particular show doesn't do a good job of caracter development. While we know what these fellows do for their jobs we do not see their lives away from work very much. We do not see their families. We do not see what they work so hard for. We do see these things in a very horrible couple of episodes at the end of the season, but by that time the show barely had my interest at that point. It was hanging by a thread and that was only because I had stuck with the show for so long that I wanted to see the season ending. Will I watch another season? Maybe. The show would definately have to do way more character development. It would also have to humanize their jobs alot more than it shows. Further more the show will have to figure out how not to fall into a repetative trap. IF they can figure out how to do those things, then I will be a repeat customer
We all use furniture, baseball bats and even paper, most likely without thinking much about how it gets to your home or office. All wood products start out as trees, and it takes a lot of hard work from lumberjacks to get this underway. "Ax Men" shows you the daily efforts of a group of lumber workers, on location as they harvest the trees. It's dangerous work, with the weather, chancy equipment and differences in knowledge all figuring in as risks on the job. Will the new recruits learn what to do in time? Will the crew bosses be able to find enough locales to turn a profit? As with "Ice Road Truckers," the History Channel has created another fun and engrossing new show that really delves into its subjects' lives. You won't look at this topic quite the same way again.
