Must see TV

Surprisingly gripping television series that follows the competition/progress between three oil drilling rigs (the Longhorn, the Viking and the Big Dog) in Andrews County sixty miles northwest of Odessa, Texas. Being a roughneck looks like a tough job, being a driller rather thankless. Supposedly this series has that "... wow-I-wish-I-could-give-that-a-try quality, which is sure to resonate with men..." This blogger has zero inclination in this regard, but the series still sucks you in, leaving you wanting to know what is going to happen next. Strongly recommended!
