Great show that you can watch over and over again for fun!
Shoots89
At any moment the ice can break and they can fall through the frozen lakes, rivers, and oceans they drive over with their heavy loads.
Flor Zizumbo
I know they aren't actors but surely their lives are more interesting than what's presented.

First and foremost, I missed Lisa.She was a refreshing change to the show. I hope she returns soon. Maya on the otherhand I did not miss. Women truckers across the Country just want respect from other drivers. Her little Hot Spring scene seemed to be just as degrading to women as anything else in the entertainment industry that can't tell a story without having a sexual twist to it.The guys were so childish this season, I'm better than you are, hahaha. Please, I don't need to be reminded of how high school was. There is enough disrespect for others already in the world. If I was their wife or girlfriend I would be absolutely embarrassed by their actions. Todays youth need role models in work forces, not pansy ass whiners. If I was Porkchops wife, I would not want him to come home, money or not !!! Darrell, well, he just does it for Reno, HELLO !!! I thought they were doing it for people who need supplies for their livliehood, with a nice paycheck for caring and risking your life for. Me, Me, Me. He is a Jerk. Alex is refreshing to listen too and the comedy act of Hugh and Rick, I have no words for, eventually, I can see them dying doing this show, YeeHawing their way down into icy waters. So, if you haven't guessed yet, I was not happy with this season, but I do love the show. Reality or staged script, just put some pride back into the trucking industry, and others and into the minds of our future work force.

It is amazing and thankful that Amazon was able to wrangle the ability to present these. When someone is attempting to follow a presentation but gets denied the TV presentation (for whatever reason), they are now able to count on Amazon to prevent the loss of continuity of programming with Instant Video --- especially presentations on The Weather Channel, Discovery, and History. These are Great!!

I read these reviews thoroughly before deciding to purchase the season anyway. After going more than halfway through season 6, I had to read the reviews again, especially the negative ones, to see if it was DEFINITELY about the same series and not just a mistake.
Just like the other seasons, this one kept me glued to the seat, and my eyes got all dry because I felt that blinking would make me miss out on something. I remembered all the negative posts on here whining about why Lisa wasn't in season 6, and these same people felt like they had to take a few stars off the rating just BECAUSE Lisa wasn't present in the season. Uhhhhhh...she isn't in season 1 or 2 either, but I'm sure these same people gave those high ratings anyway. Yes, Lisa is awesome and a major part of the storyline in other seasons, but that's no reason to talk negatively about the show because of her absence.
Hugh is still at it again and trucks on with Rick as a partner. But this time, he is getting more pay by taking a share of the company's profits, or in any other case, a bigger piece of the pie. He does pretty good in this film. And he, Rick, and Alex are really pushing their luck to the limit by driving on ice already thinned from a warm season. Meanwhile, we see some new faces on the Alaska crew. Despite another review talking about Maya in some hot spring scene, she is nowhere in sight here on season 6, and once again, I must wonder if that negative review was even ABOUT this season, or if it was mistakenly meant for season 5. It's good to see Jack, the Haul Road ace on here again. Wonder what he's been up to!!! But he's paired with a 23-year old driver who looks a lot younger, who is somewhat impatient and whiny because he has to shadow Jack, who is slower than the overeager young trucker is hoping for.

I enjoyed the first couple of season of the show. This season has been the worst one so far. I can't decide which is more annoying. The fact they have used every bit of shrill violin music from every horror movie climax ever created, the camera shots that seem to indicate a wreck is coming complete with nauseating spinning, or the fact that nothing really happens except cargo gets from point A to point B with a lack of substance in between. Surely there is something more educational about trucking in general to enlighten us with along with the few charming main characters. Hugh is a riot. I would love to hear his stories in between driving scenes. The girly cry babies, not so much.

I enjoy IRT and have all the previous seasons. I was disappointed in this one. I enjoy the show so much simply by watching everybody do a hard job; and the beautiful Alaska and Canadian scenery. I found this season to be weighed down by a lot more scripted drama than past years. Previously they'd have "good guys" and "bad guys" but this year everybody was an obnoxious rooster, and nobody likable. (Don't believe for a minute that Jack's melt down was not scripted for drama - he's too mature and professional for that nonsense). It's sort of becoming the Real Housewives of Ice Road Trucking......and there are no women this year! Who would have thought the show would get more catty with no women? Anyway, sad to see a good show have to lower itself to the standard of "reality TV" drama.
