  • Another great episode with classic Mike jokes for just about everything even though you might think a billboard is not that exciting.

    I was a little worried that this episode would just not be as 'dirty' as normal but one should never under estimate Mike. And he didn't let us down, with his classic jokes, fear of height, wierd ablitiy to get manage to slow the job down once again it was a good show.

    Ok so the boss never really works but to stand on the other side of the road to make sure the pole was straight, I was dumb founded at first and then I was rolling in laughter as Mike ran across the freeways over by him to check for himself.

    We have all seen Mike's new commerical for Ford but it was cute the way they changed the ending where he ask for more dirty jobs to fit in the Ford name and the new sign. Funny. Best part of this show was of course MIKE ROWE!moreless
  • Mike works with a sign company in Tyler, Texas.

    I'm a touch biased as my Uncle Joe and my cousin Charlie were in this episode. I particularly liked the part where the front loader was damaged, and Mike said "What happened?" Charlie, aghast at the silly question, replied, "You broke it!" Even that funny moment aside, I really like this show as it gives folks who work very hard a chance to be seen and appreciated. Mike cheerfully (and sometimes NOT so cheerfully) jumps right in and helps do the jobs that most of us simply don't want. All in all, this is a great program and I hope it stays on the air for a long time!moreless
  • Overall a good episode, but a shameless promotion for Ford at the end left a weird taste in my mouth, and not the normal Dirty Jobs flavor (poo!).

    This episode was interesting and had a few great Mike Rowe moments. He embarassed himself pretty good with his welding attempts, but as always was good natured. He had a good rapport with the billboard crew, and took some fun shots at the boss who stood on the sidelines watching his men work and drinking coffee.

    I was a little surprised that they were able to stretch this one job for an entire episode, but it was interesting. They even came back for a second day, which is not normal. This strange feeling was capped off by a funny, but rather shameless plug for Ford, which sponsors the show and employs Mike Rowe as a spokesperson. It seemed a little wierd, but overall it didn't ruin the episode for me. I just hope that they don't make a regular habit of this, which I'm sure they won't.

    Overall, still one of the best shows on TV, now starting a new season, which is awesome.moreless
