It could be that after the second season of Ice Road Truckers and Ax Men, I’m a bit burned on the whole tough-guy-drama type of show. However, I don’t think that’s the case. I still await the next season of Ax Men with enthusiasm, and for some reason I like Ice Road. But Sandhogs just isn’t cutting it for me, no pun intended.
Perhaps it’s that I have no desire whatsoever to be underground. These guys are closed in and surrounded by rock, choking levels of dust and debris, not to mention other tough, smelly dudes just as cranky as they themselves are. There’s no upside here. I have respect for the guys — all of them are 1,000 times tougher than I am — but little interest in the show.
What do you think? Have I finally met my personal sissy-boy level and copped out, or is this one just not as good as some of the others? Let us know in comments.
