Dirty Jobs


This reality series is far more educational than I expected. Sure, host Mike Rowe shovels a lot of shit and dispenses very funny jokes (potty humor anyone?) but these documentaries are about more than dirt. They are about admiration for the skill and hard work of the folks doing unwanted jobs. Rowe takes great pains to show how and why these essential hidden jobs are done. You feel his respect. He makes you appreciate their challenges. You get inside views, see things you ordinarily would not, learn how the world works. You get the thrill of being backstage. Kids love the shows, and I strongly encourage them to watch them all.
