100 TV Shows-#26-Dirty Jobs

Dirty Jobs

My name's Mike Rowe, and this is my job. I explore the country looking for people who aren't afraid to get dirty — hard-working men and women who earn an honest living doing the kinds of jobs that make civilized life possible for the rest of us. Now, get ready to get dirty.

Only one fic, but it still makes me smile.

I love this show. It's simple and it's brilliant. Mike Rowe+Dirty Jobs.

I love Mike's snark. I love his voice. I love the connection to San Francisco. I love the gross-outs. I love Mike's commitment and goofieness. I love Barsky and Jones and all the crew. I totally ship Mike with Bill Bretherton (from Vexcon) and with the snake lady, and tons of others, although not the bastard who made him drag the boat in the swamps. I even got the feeling he was flirting with the veterinarian who made him express a dogs anal gland i.e. squeeze the poo out of a dog.

Like Mythbusters (which I'll do next) even though it can be "icky" it's a show I can (and do) watch over and over and over....especially when I'm trying to go to sleep. I hope Mike never runs out of dirty jobs.
