Love it
7 December 2014 | by (Prince George BC) – See all my reviews

Love this show, it's an honest look at life of Heavy Rescue. Nothing else like it on TV. Nothing staged, no phony characters, no fake action. It gives us a view of what life is like for the world of truckers and what they face driving on our highways. The good, the bad and the ugly conditions they face everyday. Not to mention the good, the bad and the ugly drivers. My only complaint is not enough shows. Winter usually starts in October or November and lasts until March or April. You should be able to have plenty more shows, especially now that you a second team in Alberta. You could have a whole other show just for the guys on the Alberta team. Ask any fan and they'd say the same. We'd even like to see more of Al, his team and his big green rig. Give us more HIGHWAY THRU HELL.
