Take a chance for Dirty Jobs
2 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Dirty Jobs. The title rather says it all, but I'll expand just for the sake of possibly winning more possible viewers over. Host Mike Rowe narrates, hosts (obviously) and takes part in all manner of dirty jobs. Many of them are ones that perhaps we only randomly wonder about--like golf ball recovery on courses, roadkill collector, and even ostrich wrangler.

Mike and his crew are amazing people--if they ever do get truly "grossed out" by some of the jobs they do/watch, they hardly ever show it. Heavens forbid this show is ever cancelled, for it is truly amazing and brilliant. And as odd as it might sound, only a few times have I ever been completely grossed out.

Be sure to check this one out. It'll be worth your time.
