    can't say that I know what your talking about, but sounds like it reinforces my decision to not waste money on cable/satellite TV.

    I agree but I do like it because it makes me drink more moonshine

    You smarter then most of us, TV sucks anymore.
    I think the last good tv shows were on in the 80s, now all you see are these so called reality shows. There's nothing entertaining about tv anymore.

    It's supposed to be just "entertainment" and about as real as most of the reality tv crap out there. Here's what wiki sez

    "Moonshiners is an American docudrama television series on the Discovery Channel that dramatizes the life of people who produce (illegal) moonshine in the Appalachian Mountains of North Carolina, Virginia, and South Carolina. The series dramatizes their liquor production efforts, law-evading techniques and life.[1] There have been claims by local officials that the show is not what it portrays to be. Virginia authorities have stated that no illegal liquor is actually being produced by the people depicted in the show. The Virginia Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control said in March 2012 that, "If illegal activity was actually taking place, the Virginia ABC Bureau of Law Enforcement would have taken action."[2] They also said that they had requested for the producers to add a disclaimer to clarify that the show was only a dramatization, "but the request was overlooked."[2]"

    I'd bet though that the show has encouraged more than a few people to attempt distilling their own liquor.
