I liked the ice road truckers season three, and some of season four - the India trucking was okay, too (being Deadliest Roads Season One): so I had high expectations for better entertainment with the deadliest roads series for season two, filmed in South America.
But I was wrong.
I was wrong not really because of the location, and the different towns and cities, nor the different culture: I was wrong because of the crew that the production used as drivers - in particular: the two bozo idiot rookies! Those two guys were imbeciles! And they had no right to be criticizing anybody on how a road is to be driven: as with the episode when they scolded a veteran driver on how he should drive after they themselves only drove the road once.
And to top it off: Lisa Kelly: the semi-cutie female from Alaska, turned out to be a real conceded bitch. Lisa's head swelled even more than the rookies after she managed to get through the route. At first she was soooo scarred - then she became gods' greatest gift to trucking after a successful drive.
Okay ... Bolivia and Peru were interesting; but give me the crew from Alaska to watch - or some guys worth liking: without anybody quitting after the second episode like Rick and Dave.
But Hugh Rawlins was great.
Was this program real, or did they become actors, using a script from writers: because it sure seemed like an insane asylum to have to put up with the attitudes of those truckers? I think that some of what goes on is scripted; including drivers quitting or getting fired in order to hype up somebody or a situation. I guess that had to be done, because of what they hauled; stupid things, like: ceramics, plaster dinosaurs, cases of beer (why can't a remote city make their own beer?), real live Llamas (why can't remote communities breed their own livestock?); and then they hauled some normal things, like: cement and metal pipes. BUT ... there are large helicopters that can carry a tank, so why can't it carry those pitiful loads that the trucks had? It would be a lot faster and safer.
Well ... what the hell: the program was still better to watch then 90% of everything else on the tube. Maybe Lisa will try mooning on one of the episodes?
