THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! (FOR RELEASING THIS 5 STAR ENTERTAINMENT MASTERPIECE.)

Whichever genius decided to expand the concept of Ice Road Truckers to this format is EXACTLY THAT: A GENIUS! THIS SIMPLY BLOWS THE ORIGINAL SERIES AWAY!!!

Frankly, the IRT original series was beginning to bog down badly with the same tiresome theme: "Will Lisa ever fit in?" Watching these three drivers, including Lisa, negotiate possibly the highest, tightest and generally the worst excuses for roads on the planet will have you squirming in your chair and sucking in audible tight breaths as you frequently peer 1000 feet straight down with no safety rails.

This is daredevil fare at it's very finest. It's called the "Road of Skeletons" because a driver DIES while driving on it every 4 1/2 MINUTES!

SIGN UP. THIS WILL QUICKLY BECOME A FAVORITE YOU'LL SHARE WITH FRIENDS AND ONE THAT STANDS UP TO REPEATED "LUMP IN YOUR STOMACH/LUMP IN YOUR THROAT" VIEWING!

This really shows you what it's like to drive in India--there are no rules, other than you should generally drive on the left side of the road. The drivers (Lisa, Rick, Dave, Alex) are diverse enough that their way of handling the insanity makes it interesting...though the insanity itself is interesting. The "what-if" special effects are meant to add excitement and danger, but really, there was enough excitement and danger that it wasn't needed. One of the drivers doesn't make it past the first day, and only one driver makes it to the end. Along the way there are rockslides, avalanches, road closures, traffic jams, accidents, fights, breakdowns (mechanical and emotional), and always sketchy roads--usually with a massive drop off on one side. I thoroughly enjoyed the Deadliest Roads Season 1 and have a new appreciation for these drivers, as well as a better understanding of what it's like to drive in India.

The one thing that is slightly annoying is that because it was taken straight from TV, minus the commercials, there is the recap that occurs after a commercial (for viewers who just tuned in while watching TV), yet because there was no commercial you get an unnecessary recap of what you just saw. Yet, I still give it 5 starts because for the price I can tolerate it. On the plus side, each segment of each episode is in a submenu, so you can go directly to a segment and you will know what happened beforehand due to the recap.

Just to recap, Ice Road Truckers Deadliest Roads Season i is interesting, exciting, and well worth watching.

This side-series of Ice Road Truckers puts the drivers into a very foreign (and more stressful than ever) environment, from the crazy, over-crowded big city, at first, to narrow, unpaved, avalanche-prone Himalayan roads, populated by a continuous stream of rediculously-aggressive car and truck drivers. 'Very enjoyable viewing.

This is a wild ride of a show , I like the drivers and what they go through delivering supplies in India on the high mountain passes. It also shows you how rude people can be on the roads and explains why many truck drivers get ulcers. After watching this you will know why but it also shows how life is like in India and what overpopulation looks like.

This show in my opinion is better than it's previous versions of a the same name just different location! It shows how far some of the characters will go to prove how brave they want to be and just how dangerous it is in a very remote location far removed from civilization and the cost of human life to do the kind of work these people do. I'd be kidding myself if I thought that anybody could do this and not hate themselves later and just because you driven a truck in these locations doesn't mean your bullet proof in a matter of speaking!

Seems like the footage is of the same continuous roads in the Himalayan mountains. My favorite, Alex Debogorski, quit and went back home before he even got out of the Indian town due to fear of a mob attack. Can't blame him at all.

Unreal and totally wild!! I give so much credit to the drivers who made it! I don't blame Alex Debogorski one bit for going home. He followed his instincts, and with such a large family, it made sense. I'm a really big fan of IRT and now IRT Deadliest Roads! It's a trip, and worth watching!

Very much enjoyed watching the Ice Road Truckers driving these narrow mountain roads. They dodged vehicles all along the one lane roads with the two way traffic in the mountains, with steep drop-offs at the edge of their wheels! It's amazing to see how the people in that country disregard safety while driving thru mobs of people & vehicles. Very interesting and entertaining. Beautiful scenery, too.
