Editorial Reviews

For the past several decades, two months out of every year, truckers in the Canadian tundra carry vital equipment to remote outposts located hundreds of miles north. The mission is to transport thousands of loads before the road disappears.

Continuing this successful series, our truckers will venture to a new road - one that is actually located inside the Arctic Circle. The road is comprised of hills that resemble rollercoasters, journeys over ice, and even includes a 120-mile stretch over open ocean. Over the course of the season, the series will examine the building of the ice road (which includes an ice bridge), and will also follow road maintenance crews as they struggle to keep the road safe and operable in sub zero temperatures.

It is a race against the elements, against time, and against each other. The series will continue to examine this time honored profession that dates back almost a century, often through generations of families.

4.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining October 24, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I got this for my husband for a Christmas gift. It is pretty entertaining. It is mostly just "fluff" T.V., but watching some of these guys whine and cry cracks me up. The ice road itself is pretty amazing. When it starts melting, I don't know how these guys keep driving on it to get in their last loads... Overall, I would recommend it.

3.0 out of 5 stars awful narration, poor understanding January 20, 2010
Format:DVD
I was very interested in this series after spending 12 years of my life as a long hauler. Aside from the pseudo dramatic overdone narration it is apparent that the producers know very little about the occupation of trucking. True, it is dangerous, but the real problems that some of these guys faced had more to do with their ineptness in driving & understanding the equipment they use on a daily basis. The idea that someone with years & years of experience can't down shift without mashing every gear is simply unbelievable. The arrogance of the "Polar Bear" in his treatment of his hired drivers & lack of willingness to accept responsibility for his own behavior destroys his own credibility. The only driver who knew what he was doing & did it well was is Jay. To bad we don't have more like that. For all of the critical comments, I did enjoy the show but please get another narrator! aka Tenderfoot p.s. I was a lady driver & pulled flatbed with my own truck!

5.0 out of 5 stars Only THESE guys can get such a job done! April 25, 2012
By Tyler
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I was hoping for a second season with the truckers hauling more goods back on the same roads as season 1, but these guys tend to go where they're needed, transporting supplies to the natural gas rigs ACROSS THE ARCTIC OCEAN!!! One of the rigs is a bust and is being relocated and these truckers are the ones who make the move driving over barely 35 inches of ice, which is all that stands between them and their 40-ton loads(sometimes heavier)and more than 120 feet of water. It isn't like Season 1, where there are "land bridges" and driving over 60-feet deep lakes. The entire ROUTE is nothing but the frozen waters of the MacKenzie River and the Arctic Ocean itself!

I was hoping that Drew would make a comeback much better than Season 1, but he ends up quitting on the first day due to his impatience in waiting for a load to come in, and ends up driving a box truck around town much of the time, but he DOES end up making 9 trips across the ice anyway in a semi-truck doing grocery runs. Some would call this rather pathetic comparing to what the other guys would haul, but people gotta eat too! And he still takes the risk of running through the ice especially when it gets warmer and the ice is melting everywhere.

Hugh made the most trips, an astonishing 67, and beating the top scorer there by one more load. Most of these trips were made with some kind of vacumn truck, a VAC truck as they call it, emptying waste tanks and stuff, and one review even criticized Hugh for not having the better loads, but he's getting paid just the same and also taking the same risks, and it's a big improvement to the environment considering that the waste tanks HAVE to be emptied somehow.

2.0 out of 5 stars Ice Road Truckers Season Two is a bust! November 15, 2008
Format:DVD
Ice Road Truckers - The Complete Season 1 (History Channel) was a unique query into the phenomena of "At The Top of The World" ice road trucking. An eclectic group of ice road drivers, the bleeped out language, interaction between drivers and the sheer "man vs the elements" made for quite an enjoyable series.

Season Two was a bit of a disappointment. The weeks depicting the gas drill rig being moved and reassembled was good but watching week after week of Hugh "The Polar Bear" driving a waste truck, Rick transporting dirty snow and Drew delivering candy & soda just killed the novelty of the whole series. I'll be taking a pass on Season Two!

Ice Road Truckers: The Complete Season Three has been a delight with the show moving to the USA. Notice that because this year has been in the US, all drivers are wearing seat belts; even our lovable Canadian drivers. Perhaps next season will be in the Asian Arctic. That would be "cool"!

Gritty, edgy, daring, testing the limits of driving over 3 to 4 feet of ice. Overall a terrific show to watch.

3.0 out of 5 stars Totally dramatized for your viewing suspense December 26, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My husband has been a trucker for over 40 years. For me, 20, so we thought this might be a fun series to watch. The first series seemed ok but a little over-dramatic. By the second season, it was clear that this series was dramatized. Sadly, many people who don't have someone close to them who drives a semi will never know how dramatized it is.
The series makes you believe that this road is exclusive to certain drivers. Not at all, the case. Wyoming roads can be much worse than the footage for this series.
Still, it can be fun to watch if you're just looking for a little waste of time.
