The show is obviously scripted,, and they get a little over dramatic sometimes (in episode 2 they made it seem like nipping up a BOP was "extremely dangerous") but the plot keeps moving.

Cutter is a funny guy. I've never met an oil guy man as crazy as he is, but he reminds of a few that are pretty close.

-To begin with this isn't my style of show and the only reason I have an interest in it is because I used to work on the rig that is in the show. With that said I would still find this show horrible because:
1) The lead character was such an a** that I wanted to turn off the show after the first five minutes of listening to him.
2) The scenes for this 'reality' show was clearly scripted.
3) The story could be compelling if it wasn't fabricated. There is supposed to be a David vs. Goliath theme but the reality is (and I'm reading between the lines) the family was overlooked by "Big Oil" when lease money for mineral rights were being handed out. This is understandable because they are so far north of the proven production for the type of oil/gas these companies are paying top dollar for. All the lead character wants to do is spend the money in the exploration that the "Big Oil" companies don't want to spend and then lease his rights to those companies if he proves the reserves are there. That's more like David making Goliath a sandwhich and begging him to eat it.
-The only reason I gave it two stars is because I worked on the rig and used to work with some of the people on it. Otherwise, I wouldn't recommend this show to anyone

I know it is reality TV, but perhaps Discovery should work a little Hollywood magic. When I first read about the show I thought it might be an interesting premise,a however, mentally challenged monkey could carry on a more cerebrally edifying dialogue than the main protagonist. The same individual over dramatizes each and every interaction he has in the show ad nauseam. So in the end the only redeeming factor is the subject matter, but they do not even get that right. Not only does "big oil" provide a significant number of jobs to Americans. In the end it is where the vast majority of the technological developments for drilling, processing, and end-use product comes from. I know there are a lot of problems with "big oil," but have some perspective.
