Ax Men History Channel
6 January 2013 | by (Washington State Logging Country) – See all my reviews

I live in logging country. I've worked logging sales and visited on-site logging. I must say that I'm very disappointed with the History Channel. There's nothing historical about this program. If you will notice there are times when the camera is actually under someone that's falling. This is a pure piece of Hollywood type of junk. Not one of those men would last 2 minutes on a real logging site. "History channel" had done a real dis-service to the true logging industry.

Then there's the bleeps, and bleeps, etc. History Channel is encouraging and airing filthy language. Bleeps do not cover the lips when they peak the filth. This is really great examples for the youth of our country....NOT! History Channel...there's enough real history to fill your airways...why air all this crap? Your taste is questionable.
