Does everyone in the world but me love hillbillies? Every goddamn channel on TV has at least one fucking show about hillbillies, now. I grew up around REAL hillbillies, and they are pieces of shit.
Of the 13 most popular shows on THE FUCKING HISTORY CHANNEL, about 6 of them are about hillbillies.
Even the Discovery Channel has three or four hillbilly shows.
I actually know this guy from the Discovery-owned channel Destination America's Mountain Monsters:

It's American television's new freak show: Look at the rubes! Aren't they hee-larious with their camo, funny ways of talking and backwoods ways?

Most of America is stupid and enjoys shitty things. Probably the world for that matter, but I know our shitty-ness best.

I remember when channels like "The History Channel" and "The Discovery Channel" aired shows about history and scientific discovery. I thought that was some excellent programming, but it appears I am out of step with mainstream America once again.

My aunt was just talking about how she loves "Duck Dynasty" last weekend at dinner... I assume that's one of these shows? And my family is a bunch of hicks (but the employed, fairly educated kind)... and I don't really understand why hicks would watch shows about hicks.

That's a good thing.

How about fuck pretty much every show that is about a job. Unless it is life threatening the producers just have to stir up drama that is just not there.

There's gotta be another Jersey Shore-like douche trend out there, and there's probably a show in development for it right now.

Maybe they can just do an all-encompassing hipster reality show. I'd probably be more annoyed than entertained, though.

they just need to pick most any bar in brooklyn, park a camera and boom! people viewing will pretend to get all of their references, much like their hipster friends.

That's the biggest one of all. I think O&A said it had 11 million viewers last episode. Breaking Bad had like 8 million. :(

I'm sure there are a number of "regular" people who watch it for the "look at the rubes" factor, but I think most of the viewers are country music fan types who idolize or wish they were more like these guys.

I don't watch a lot of these types of shows since they are all practically scripted and I tend to lose interest in these shows after the novelty and originality wears off. I used to watch Swamp People a lot waiting for someone to get bit pretty badly by a gator or Deadliest Catch hoping to see some wild ass boat party in the middle of the ocean with those guys eating tons of crab and drinking beer (which I am convinced goes on and is not broadcasted) or someone to fall off the boat or get nailed by a pot.

I hate the Pawn shows and the fake Repo shows as well. I've seen that Shelby guy on Swamp Loggers a few times and he is a genuine nut. If he is the same guy I've seen him jump off his giant big wheel swamp machine like Jimmy Super Fly Snuka trying to land on a gator. I liked Ax Men only because the weird crazy kid with the glasses would always fight with his dad. He

This worst thing about Ax Men is whenever I told someone I logged, they would reply "like in Ax Men?" I've seen the show twice, yet people tried to talk about it with me like I was a fucking producer.

The deer hunting show filmed in Connecticut was pretty funny. Rednecks vs snobby rich people, not sure who to root against!

When I was a cop in jersey I used to work with a guy who logged up in Oregon. He would tell me horror stories about the job. I give tons of credit and respect to folks who do that for a living.

Yeah it's dangerous, but that show was pretty ridiculous at times... and the camera crew definitely made it more unsafe. On the two episodes I watched, I saw shit that would get anyone fired from any other job.

I almost bit it about 7 years ago... I was walking on a hill along a couple of logs that the dozer was pushing, slipped and fell, and the logs started rolling over my legs. They weren't huge (about 12' or 16' redwoods) but fuck was I scared and in pain. Luckily my buddy heard me yelling and stopped pushing the logs before they got to my chest/head. He was able to get some leverage under them enough so that I could slide my legs out.

Like a moron I didn't even go see a doctor... just walked it off and finished the day. Now if my legs are in one place for a while they start hurting a little until I stretch them out and move them... not sure what problems that's going to cause me in the future.

I do really enjoy it though, and if the market wasn't shit I would have definitely stayed in the industry.

MOST of my experience with hillbillies took place in Wayne County (that's where I met "Wild Bill" from that reality show).

My grandpa came from literally having no shoes in West Virginia to being a millionaire in Wayne County. He owned a bunch of houses and rental properties, and because he came from nothing, he was WAY to kind to all the white trash pieces of shit in the area. He was constantly being ripped off by hillbillies who wanted something for free and was constantly having to have them evicted.

He basically raised the daughter of one particular piece of shit from the time she was an infant. I can't even count the times they caught her stealing from their little corner store. In fact, last I heard, that girl (who is now an adult) was in jail for check fraud for stealing my grandma's check book. They were the only "grandparents" she has ever known.

He went from owning tons of land and probably a dozen houses to dying penniless in one of his son's houses and none of the hillbillies he helped out over the decades came to his aid.

Ask your wife about Rittman. They say that, in West Virginia, they learn "The 4 R's": readin', 'ritin', and the road to Rittman.

The Duck Dynasty guys are all very well educated. Master's degrees and all. It's an act.

Fez Whatley works in an unsafe environment too. He can totally identify with you.
