I guess Mike ran out of jobs.
Too bad. I always liked his humor and the way he interacted with his crew, making them more than just behind the fourth wall "staff" and gave all the people he worked with on the jobs a lot of respect.
I'll admit the show seemed to have run out of ideas a few years ago, but once you've been in the sewer, where do you go from there? Mr. Rowe did an excellent job and the whole team deserves praise.
Many people don't know that Dirty Jobs revolutionized HD programming. At a time when HD cameras were routinely over $10,000, they bought cheap HD camcorders (far under $1000) and put them in dangerous situations when needed. The video wasn't as good but the shots worked remarkably well.
Today we have GoPro and other cheap, rugged cameras... thanks to Dirty Jobs.
Only upside to this news: No possibility of a sequel to the episode where Barsky gets waxed.
Dirty Jobs was one of the few "reality" shows I ever watched and I was addicted. His sense of humor, the jobs, etc. I learned things while laughing my rear off.
Good point Stuart. Because of Dirty Jobs and the GoPro most everyone has their own show now. :lol:
So Discovery cans shows like American Chopper and Dirty Jobs but keeps a tired and worn out Mythbusters?
Personally, I think Chopper was worn out.
Very true. When Amazing Race was still SD, I was thinking, if they could get HD cameras in sewers and on crabbing boats, why not on a show like TAR.
I wouldn't call MythBusters "tired and worn out". Some episodes are "meh" but others are great. They also hold ratings better than Jobs and Chopper so why not keep MythBusters?
just because people watch something does not mean the show is not tired and worn out.
Most of the shows for the last 4 or 5 years have been "meh". When you start to resort to testing things you've seen in the movies, you've run your course. What's next, cartoons? Can Sharks really play the drums while standing on their tail fin? Can a dog throw a fox over an entire mountain range using a sheepherder's cane? Does vanishing cream really make you invisible?
Im use Mike will be offered a Game show soon ! LOL
Mike is not going far. Looks like he has a show called "Dirty Jobs down under". In any case, Mike will be around FOREVER in reruns. There are about 170 Dirty Job episodes.
There were a few episodes of that, but I didn't get the indication that it was a new series.
I completely disagree. Their Thanksgiving episode was excellent.
Dirty Jobs Down Under was a short mini-series that aired a couple of months ago. It was a one time deal and it's done.
Yeah, but from an explosion standpoint,I don't think anything compares to cement truck in I believe season 2
Be sure to checkout the web video from the Thanksgiving episode. Can you cook a lasagna in a dishwasher?
Not to mention his Ford commercials.
Or all the voice over work like Deadliest Catch.
Yeah, he's not going to starve. That's for sure!
Not to mention his foundation.
That's to bad. It was educational in a way.
