Is It Any Good?

The show is competently made, and the loggers themselves get in on the action, taking shots from the tops of trees. They're clearly conscious of the fact that their method is a more
environmentally friendly way to harvest wood -- but they also swear a
lot and give each other tree-sized grief as they go.

Overall, while the show is impressive looking, you don't get to know the loggers very well. And without "characters" to care about, dramatic landscapes and potential danger doesn't really make for much of a show beyond one or two episodes.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
