AX Men



The History Channel presents the first non-fiction show about the lives of the Pacific Northwest timber cutters and the dangers they face. From the same team responsible for Ice Road Truckers, this new series will take a look at the legacy of the pioneers who laid the foundations for future generations of loggers.


Episode Info

Next: 8x05 -- Hire Wire Act (Dec/28/2014)


In Louisiana, Shelby looks to repair his custom made two-ton swamp buggy. In Alaska, Coatsy returns to the Papac worksite. In the Pacific Northwest, the Rygaard crew must climb over a hundred feet in the air to top a new lift tree. In Wyoming, David Zitterkopf's attempt at swinging between the trees could end in disaster. In Florida, with Katelyn back and the half-million dollar order on the line, the Dreadknots go night logging. And up in Canada, an injury to a key crew member leaves Triack stuck behind the eight ball.


Prev: 8x04 -- The Swampman Cometh (Dec/21/2014)


Shelby the Swampman uses an airboat to search for a treasure trove of century old logs in a legendary lost canal. In Washington, Rygaard tries to haul out the biggest log on their site--a mammoth six-ton cypress. In the Wyoming wilderness, while David Zitterkopf delivers the first load of logs to the mill, his sons struggle to hold down the fort. In Alaska, Adrianne steps up and takes a shot at working on the landing for the Papac crew. In British Columbia, the most rugged section of the Britannia site puts Triack to the test. And in Florida, the Dreadknots are firing on all cylinders, but an accident late in the day could be a game changer.

Ax Men as Good as Deadliest Catch?Rating: 1 likes, 0 dislikes

As usual, the original is always the best. Ax Men, the newest show from the folks that brought us Deadliest Catch and Ice Road Truckers have tried, but only marginally succesfully given us another show about guys working dangerous jobs. No ne who knows anything about logging will deny that it is a dangerous business, but this show lacks a little of the "sexiness" that the others bring. Is it because they are on land? Maybe it's because the characters don't seem as interesting... It's too bad, because for those of us that know people who do this for a living, the idea of a show that tells their real story is appealling. Read more
