Angry Moonshiners on Discovery... Are you buyin' this crap?

I'm at my in-laws for the holidays and my FIL turns on Moonshiners on the Discovery channel. I watch about 10 mins of this crap before I can't take it anymore.

This was the episode where this guy (we'll call him Bubba) is out in overalls with no shirt, and he see's a hunter pass by him so he decides to follow him to see what he was about.

This was about the time I was like "are you f**king kidding me?". He decides to see what the guy was all about hours after he passed through IIRC. Then him and his 'shinin partner (who was wearing decent clothes and stated himself he has his running shoes on) were pretending to "trackdown" this guy. Bubba states something to the effect they just want to know who he is and will find out who he is in-case he causes any trouble.

It was at this point I had to leave. I couldn't handle it anymore. Do any of you guys believe this load of $hit? It just felt totally staged to me. Besides, if 'shinin is illegal where they're doing it do you really think that 1) the criminals are going to let themselves be filmed committing illegal acts and 2) wouldn't discovery have some sort of legal obligation to report the activity. If the law comes to discovery and discovery lies, they're obstructing and could be charged.

I personally think the whole show is staged and done so horribly. I think WWF (or whatever it is now) wrestling might be more realistic than this garbage.

They are not actually making shine in the show, The ABC agent that is on the show said in an interview that if they actually were, they would have already been caught. The guy that always wheres the bibs is Tim Smith he is currently in the middle of trying to get a legal distillery up and going.

Not everything on discovery and history is reality garbage.

If im not mistaken you have to have a 200,000 dollar bond before you can even start, you have to get a bunch of permits, you have to report how much you make, how many pounds of ingrediants you use, and your recipe has to be government approved before you can even start.

if you research Chuck Miller I believe he is one of the pioneers of legal shine.

Arrow I'm getting sick of all the "reality" tv crap too.

I watch the moonshiners show, parts of it are entertaining, of course it's not all real. Tim probably has a deal with discovery where he does the show, and he gets some $$$ to help get his legal distillery up and running. I wish him luck, maybe next season will be about setting up his new distillery, that might be entertaining. Too much drama, not enough reality.

That said, the reality TV thing is getting old. I can't stand american chopper, sons of guns is american chopper with a firearms theme, and american guns is just stupid. There's a ton of others, can't stand any of them.
