Of course, this show is going to feature three different crews doing dangerous things under time pressure. And, of course, the TV producer is going to want to see sparks flying and guys falling off power lines, etc...  Seems like a bad idea to me.

It's simply shocking.
Oh com on...you were all thinking it! ;D
Let's see, how about Extreme Tiddily Winks or Samurai Chess Masters.
Every time I end up channel surfing in a hotel in the US my brain turns to mush with all the "reality" bullshit shows.  ::)

With names like "Bam-bam" and "Whiskey" I can see this going well.

Looks like yet another in of the genre of Ice Road Truckers, this time, for Wiremen.

Let's use this thread to critique the show if any of us watches. I've got to see at least one of these episodes just for shits and grins.

From the first episode: http://www.history.com/shows/power-and-ice/videos

"Three companies battle to keep power flowing in the remote, frozen Alaskan wilderness. Extreme locations, avalanches, and the constant threat of electrocution stand in their way."

I've not had a chance to watch this yet, but I'm guessing we could turn it into a pretty good drinking game.  ;)

So on this show, how are the  losers paid?  Seems like a winner takes all kind of a deal-though even they might have a few missing digits or limbs before they are victorious.
