    Anyone else watch the first 2 episodes on TNT today? Interesting that its filmed in HD, but the rest of the series will be shown on TruTV in SD (todays shows were both in HD on TNT).

    Learned a lot about how oil rigs work though.

    Been watching this on tru for the last 2 weeks. Liking it so far. Didn't realize those guys made so much money (or that they're all alcoholics). The only thing I don't like is that we also watch Axe Men and Ice Road Truckers. The three shows are just too similar (same announcer, format, etc.). I wish they'd make the three shows a bit different.

    Weve been watching as well. Not getting the Ice Road/ Deadliest Catch vibe yet. Im sure that if this goes for a few more season that they'll all run pretty much the same. Still its good summertime tv. Wouldnt make it in our house during the fall.

    Yep, we're watching, too. I wish we had Tru in HD, but airing it on TNT every once in a while helps me enjoy it better. It would be nice if TNT re-aired the whole series in HD.

    I've been concentrating on the characters and haven't really gleaned much practical knowledge about the industry. I'm sure that'll come in time. After all, before Axemen, I didn't know the difference between a Bullbucker and a Butt. :)

    OK so maybe we should've skipped it this season,
    seriously it's a bunch of f bombs and chest pounding.

    I agree. I only got to watch about 15 minutes last night, but it looks like a different show.

    If Cheston wants to be taken seriously, dump the Mercedes and get a truck.

    Haven't watched the new eppy yet. Planning on it tonight. I liked this show last year, and there is nothing else on right now anyway.
