    I got dizzy when the owner talked about the amount of taxes he pays for this, that, this and that etc. OMG. :eek: He'd be lucky to just break even.

    Well, Discovery also had a limited run of the series Deception with Keith Barry and some parts were totally staged/fake.

    They also has Penn & Teller Tell a Lie for a while.

    Can't wait for that to come back, actually.

    Moonshiners seems short. I noticed they were advertising the final 2 episodes. Makes me think the moonshiners were done with their profession and this is their way to go out of business. The publicity helps ensure they won't be going back either.

    Holy Cow!!!!!
    Did anyone else's head explode at Popcorn Suttons age? It said he died when he was 61 years old. That guy looked like he was at least 85.

    An acquantance of mine went to whatever state this is filmed in and she usually buys a gallon of moonshine. She could not find any. I guess ATF is all over the place.

    I just watched the latest episode and there is a scene in there with Popcorn where he says (also subtitled) he was 72 years old.

    Yeah, I like this kind of reality show but if it's staged, well, it's History! ;)

    I stopped watching this once I found out that everything is staged on this show....they aren't even making alcohol and the running from the law (the guys is a fire captian) is total B.S because they aren't doing anything illegal.

    I watched the Mythbusters episode last night with the Moonshiners tie in. Got me interested in this show and I thought I'd check it out. Saw a review on Netflix saying everything is fake and staged. So, I already knew it before going in.

    I'm on like the 3rd episode and am finding it interesting. I still like seeing how moonshine is made illegally, even if it is fake. Well, hopefully they are correctly depicting how illegal moonshine is made. :)
