Improving Ice Road Truckers

Ice Road Truckers would have been a much better show if just one truck had crashed through the ice just once. Just one catastrophic accident and I would have been hooked.


Instead, all I got was lots of talk about the dangers of the ice and the hazards of the job, but not even one uneventful fender-bender.

All it amounted to was one great big tease.

I watched six episodes and was done.

It was like watching a NASCAR race without a single multi-car accident.

Or attending a hockey game and not seeing a fight.

Or watching John Boehner deliver speak in public without crying.
