Our family loves Discovery Channel’s Dirty Jobs with Mike Rowe. It is a series built around those every day jobs that aren’t flashy or conducted in the high towers of skyscrapers over lattes and croissants. These are the “meat and potatoes” jobs that make our lives easier to tolerate. Jobs like: Pest control, sewer management, trash collector, etc.
Mike gets right in with these jobs and shows us what these hard-working folks do for a living. These aren’t easy or glamorous jobs. Most of them look horrible (i.e. Roadkill collector, grease-trap cleaner, etc.). However, Mike is right there doing these jobs. Our family has gotten a new appreciation for these hard-working folks.
Mike adds comedy (and a few crude jokes) to each episode. He isn’t afraid to “get dirty” and have a little fun at the same time. Mike isn’t just a pretty face (ok, he is sort of cute…). He does try to show the audience how difficult most of these jobs truly are.
Although I enjoy the show, I have to say that I have a new respect for Mike since seeing him climb to the top of the Machinac Bridge in Michigan . My hat is off to you, Mike. There is absolutely NO WAY you would get me to climb the 522 feet up to the top of ANY bridge. Nerves of steel man. Nerves of steel.
Thanks for a great show, Mike. Our entire family enjoys each and every episode. Keep them coming!
