Ice Road Truckers: Deadliest Roads!

Ice Road Truckers: Deadliest Roads Himalayas

Was I in a coma?

When did every profession get its own reality show? What do you do when that profession, A.K.A. driving trucks on ice, becomes old news? Take those same truckers and force them to drive on a dangerous Himalayan mountain road and asfvvvvvbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbb… Sorry, I fell asleep face down on my keyboard.

The other night, while flipping through the on-screen channel guide, my girlfriend noticed the show “Parking Wars” and asked, “What is that show about?” I answered, “Parking.” Unsatisfied with that answer, she said, “No really, what is it?” I punched her in the eye and said, “I ALREADY FUCKING TOLD YOU, IT’S ABOUT PARKING!” OK, I would never hit my girlfriend but I was forced to say, “No, seriously, it’s a show about people parking” and then cried myself to sleep.

My attention span for watching people drive trucks on TV is somewhere between less than none seconds and none seconds.

2 minutes and 35 seconds of truckers changing gears and saying shit about roads or something. How is this is real?

    Dude, they’re driving TRUCKS on HIMALAYAN roads!

    I’m not sure how that goes over with Mac-loving hipster ironic t-shirt designers – but to men, that’s awesome.

    Jeff – I don’t know, I will try to ask one today. By the way, WATCHING men does not MAKE you a man, it might even be a little gay.

    And what’s Historic about it? The shows that air on History Channel should have historic value. This doesn’t. Too many shows don’t conform to their network’s name/genre

    When I was a kid, AMC meant American Movie Classics, now it’s running shows about meth-cooking high school science teachers and sexist ad agencies in the 1960’s. There’s nothing American, Movie or Classic about that. MTV used to play videos, now it’s brain-dead Guidos from Jersey ad nauseam. When did VH1 become cooler than MTV? A long time ago.

    they need to do a show about the camera crew that drives along side the IRTs. soemthing about “extreme, douche-y, camera crews” or “search for the next dangerous best-best boy”

    Thank you again, Listy, for once again putting into words something that’s been bugging me for a while now. The Hitlery Channel has really gone off the deep end with these dumb-ass ‘reality’ shows. Truckers, loggers, swamp people… what possible historical relevance do any these shows have?

    That said, I do like Pawn Stars. At least the guy in the pawn shop will comment on the historical importance of the rare items brought into his store by desperate folks in need of quick cash. It’s like a blue collar Antiques Roadshow.

    i want to watch a cops-style show about late night pizza delivery drivers. i bet that would be pretty entertaining.

  8. calebon 28 Oct 2010 at 2:16 pm

    actually, the show should be based on this blog – http://blogs.citypages.com/pizzaman/

    it ended awhile ago, but if you want a good laugh you should read it from the beginning. hilarious stuff!

    all y’all just need to turn off the fucking tube – problem solved.

    SanFran – WHAT?!?! DO WHAT?

    Actually, in my defense, I saw this commercial at the theater while waiting for Jackass 3D. Wait, is that a good defense?

    Keep the tube on Listy, you need the material.

    In the spirit of hipsters always regressing to make something cool (mustaches, fixed-gear bikes, cassettes) I predict there will be an anti-HDTV trend where hipsters gather and watch SD TV on Black and White TV sets. Just watch.

  12. SanFranon 28 Oct 2010 at 7:26 pm

    that’s A defense, Listy…

    Actually, I retract my previous statement – because of you, I don’t have to watch it. Thanks for taking the punches for me…

    what I wanna watch is a show about a bunch of overpaid whiney assed truck drivers whine about driving on dangerous roads. That they volunteered to drive on anyway!

    I agree with “Caleb”. I would want to watch a pizza delivery guy deliver pizzas to South Central
