    Haha.

    Not like anyone would realize this to be a surprise, but while that show is cool to watch it's staged so bad it's not even funny.

    My brother is good friends with the contract crew that was doing work for the Pelletier's. I forget the name of the company, but they were the crew with the all yellow machines. Anyhow after a couple weeks/month they had to cancel the wood cutting contract because they couldn't deal with Hollywood b/s instead of just doing a job. The camera crew wanted them to do all sorts of unsafe stuff to add to the drama of the show.

    Ah yeah, I think it's funnier than hell when the show doesn't beep out the French swears.

    Is that on the Discovery Channel? I was channel surfing late one night several months ago & just hit on it.Had 2 eps in a row,one showed one of the crew getting a new big ass Mack truck,by eps end something happened during bad weather & it wrecked or something.Bet they did some heavy editing before airing,you know it had to sound like The Sopranos :lol:

    Yes same show. Pelletier Logging in central Maine. The reason for the hand cutting with the Dolmar was because the wood was too big for the harvester they have. They contracted that guy to hand cut.

    Pelletiers have done a lot for Millinocket for the sledders and ATVers . . . and the restaurant is pretty good . . . but that said I don't really care much for the show myself . . . probably because a) everything is set up and staged and b) I've pretty much grown up and am accustomed to seeing the "toys" they use so there's not much new and interesting things to see.

    On the show from 3/25, they showed the guy using a Husky, Jonsered, Dolmar and a Stihl in 4 consecutive shots. Now that's my kinda logger!
