A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that, like many "dangerous jobs" show, this series follows a team of workers who face peril in their daily routine -- but it doesn't overplay the danger as some shows do. There really isn't any red-flag content, though you can expect a few bleeped words and some good-natured teasing. Even though the logging industry has long been surrounded by environmental controversy, the show doesn't really touch on that issue.

What's the story?
Is it any good?
This isn't a bad show -- the storytelling is competent, the people are reasonably interesting, and there are even a few things to be learned. But it's not the most enthralling hour of television ever made, either. In one episode, the narrator tries to ratchet up the drama when one of the machines breaks down by pointing out that such glitches mean lost money to the loggers and truckers. But the guys treat it so matter of factly that viewers end up taking it in stride, too.
Bottom line? A fine pick if your tween can't get enough of the "dangerous jobs" that have popped up everywhere in recent years, but hardly a best of breed.
