This show is far too "reality" TV now. It was better when it was closer to a documentary style, like the earlier Deadliest Catch seasons. In recent seasons, there is a distorting influence on the contrived "Log Off" competition that saps all the realism and authenticity out of the show. The bottom line (should be) that these are real people doing real work to fill real logging contracts. That ought to be enough. Some of the crews (esp. the river logging, and maybe some situations with Shelby) work might be totally contrived by the show production (i.e. not logging for any real customer). You can tell the done-for-TV fakery all around the edges if you watch closely: sweetened audio, etc.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
