Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that this reality series -- which follows four Pacific Northwest logging crews as they risk life and limb to cut timber in remote mountain areas -- highlights the dangers associated with logging (including some of the wounds sustained on the job, like one man's severed fingers). Loggers are occasionally shown getting hurt, and although no blood or graphic images are actually visible, some of these intense moments may be scary to young viewers. Perhaps not surprisingly given the stressful nature of the loggers' lifestyle, there's also a fair amount of strong language ("ass" and "damn"; words like "bitch" and "f--k" are bleeped out).
Logging is presented as a dangerous business. Loggers handle axes, chain saws, and other cutting tools that can result in loss of limbs. Loggers are shown getting injured, though no blood is seen. One featured logger has a prosthetic hand due to an accident. Loggers are constantly dodging falling timber. Occasional arguments between the loggers.
Frequent use of words like "stupid" and "idiot." Other audible language includes "damn" and "hell." Words like "bitch" and "f--k" are bleeped out.
