Storyline

During the harsh winter of Canada's Northwest Territory, remote villages and work camps are cut off from the world. To keep them supplied, a tenacious group of long-haul truckers drive their rigs over hundreds of miles on ice roads cut across the surface of frozen lakes. Sometimes the ice cannot support the heavy rig, and driver and cargo plunge through the ice and sink to the bottom. Hitch a risky ride along with the Ice Road Truckers as they drive headlong into bone-chilling danger. Written by History Channel

Very over-hyped
11 May 2008 | by Midd1994See all my reviews

After watching several episodes I thought that this show was over-hyped -- where every moment is made out to be a life-or-death situation. After seeing the same graphic of a tractor & trailer falling through the ice -- shown 3 or 4 times per episode -- it gets to be a bit hard to believe. And the narrator, Thom Beers, is obviously trying to sell us on a danger that is probably a lot less significant than the TV producers want us to believe.

Then, I found out that a coworker had spent almost 20 years driving on the ice road! After hearing her descriptions of what it was really like -- well, I won't be watching this over-hyped piece of crap any more!
