A tremendously good sport, Rowe knows that whether it�s serving greasy slop to pigs in Iowa, or picking up five-day-old road kill and transporting it to a crematorium, it�s all part of an honest day�s work.
    At the end of each enlightening, horrifying and hilarious episode, viewers are left with an appreciation for hardworking people, and they�ll know it takes to tackle tough jobs.

    Swords: Life On The Line takes cameras into the high risk world of New England's long line fishermen, who risk everything to catch an elusive prey in some of the most dangerous waters on the planet. These men and women are uniformly tough and resilient and they need to be as every day could be their last. The prey they hunt is the swordfish -- those magnificent giants of the deep that can weigh over a thousand pounds and are found in the waters around the Grand Banks off Newfoundland and the Georges Bank off the Gulf of Maine. These waters are also home to some of the wildest storms on earth. Swords follows four boats: The Eagle Eye II, Big Eye, Seahawk & The Frances Ann, as they head into these stormy waters hoping to hit the jackpot. The skippers of the boats use every bit of experience and knowledge they have to try and find the fish, at incredible risks. Even if these fisherman catche plenty of fish, they still have to make it home alive, and some never did. It's a gamble where lives are on the line and it's all caught on camera on Swords: Life On The Line.moreless

No mystery is too indecipherable for Dan and his crew, and they're willing to do whatever it takes to find the truths they're looking for. Dan uses his own body for some of the experiments, which include studying the effects of fear (in which he leaps from an airplane) and the nature of memory (in which scientists implant false memories in his mind).
