Ice Road Truckers
- 11 Seasons
For the last six years the History Channel has broadcast a television series titled; "Ice Road Truckers". The reason for the title is that it covers, in documentary fashion, several big rig truck drivers, driving over ice covered lakes and rivers. Each episode concerns itself with a few drivers and the problems they encounter, while driving on the most dangerous roads in the world. The team spirit, coupled with the life threatening aspects of the job, make this series on the History Channel very different. The drivers are in the worst possible environments any driver could imagine. Snow, ice, freezing weather and treacherous road conditions, make this series unique and thrilling. "Ice Road Truckers" also looks at the truck drivers themselves. Their own personal outlooks on their job. The reasons why each one of them chose to engage in such a life and death occupation. How they react to the other drivers. How they support and evaluate their fellow drivers. Finally how they examine and solve the numerous problems they encounter on the road. This series is unique in one other aspect also. It invites the viewer to experience the excitement of watching life and death struggles as they happen. There are other reality series on television. But they don't deliver the edge-of-your seat chills that this show gives. "Ice Road Truckers" is an ongoing series. There are few shows that will hook you right from the start. This is the most successful reality shows the History Channel has ever broadcast.
