I don't get paid tv. This show looks interesting. Someone watch it and let me know how it is. It is about Bit coal mining.

So your saying this is filmed NOWHERE NEAR Massachusetts ..... :lol:

Shows pretty good! These guys look like coal miners for sure. They are mining on the flat. Doesn't look or sound like the mine I saw with the Meet & Greet a couple years ago. Those guys at the pioneer had to climb down or up almost verticle seams. Some seams were only a couple feet thick.The show is good though. You get the impression of just how hard those guys work and how dangerous it is. :)
I think a man does what he can, untill his destiny is revealed. Right now that is trying to sell my EFM plate boilers in 520 and 700 sizes.

Yeah really shows how tough the work is, and also how tough the business aspect of it is. Constantly worrying about losing everything. :shock: I wouldn't do very well under those conditions. :no1:

Hats off to those guys! 8-)

I didn't realize that they post each eposide on the web site after it has aired. Got to watch it on the Web the day after. What a risky business both physically and financially.
