Get in There, I Don't Care How It Smells, It Sells
27 February 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Mike Rowe has really come up with a great concept for this series. Not only has he created an interesting show, but the show entertains and educates the viewer as well. I have seen some of these running on the Discovery channel.

The ones on Discovery are 60 minutes long & usually tackle at least 2 terribly dirty or challenging jobs in an hour. What is amazing is that Mike is always asking for requests at the end of every hour, sounding desperate for finding another dirty job, and yet seems to find one every hour. So far in spite of his desperate pleas he is meeting the challenge.

Is there anything Mike won't do? So far I have seen him work dirty from confined spaces to high rise bridges, to working with tools which can cut off limbs. He has absorbed heat & cold. I used to think being a Doctor, Firefighter, or Astronaut was tough until I saw some of these.

This series is incredibly entertaining & to me it does well because of the ideas & daring of host Mike Rowe. He makes "Tim The Toolman Taylor" of the old series Home Improvement look like an amateur when it comes to what he will try to keep his viewers coming back for more.

As more people discover this show, that is exactly what they will do in higher & higher numbers.
