IRT: DEADLIEST ROADS sends today’s toughest drivers to navigate the world’s most dangerous roads as they haul their way through India’s Himalayan highways, some of the most historic – and lethal – on the planet. From the crowded streets of Delhi, to treacherously steep, narrow and congested roads blasted into the mountainside, seasoned drivers Rick Yemm, Lisa Kelly and Alex Debogorski embark on an exhilarating, exhausting and terrifying adventure, where the difference between life and death is just a few inches…or one very blind corner.
The challenges and perils are never-ending on these ancient trade routes; someone dies on them every 4.5 minutes. If Rick, Lisa and Alex aren’t careful, they might wind up as casualty statistics themselves. Tight, winding roads, perilous drops, rock ceilings, weakened mountains, potholes and total roadway failure combine with the ever-present danger of avalanches, communication breakdowns, wild weather and the harder-than-it-sounds task of driving on the other side of the road to challenge, fray the nerves and risk the lives of these courageous drivers. Will they be able to adapt and overcome these dire obstacles when so out of their own elements?
Experience all 10 episodes of this pulse pounding series on 3 DVDs.

Whichever genius decided to expand the concept of Ice Road Truckers to this format is EXACTLY THAT: A GENIUS! THIS SIMPLY BLOWS THE ORIGINAL SERIES AWAY!!!
Frankly, the IRT original series was beginning to bog down badly with the same tiresome theme: "Will Lisa ever fit in?" Watching these three drivers, including Lisa, negotiate possibly the highest, tightest and generally the worst excuses for roads on the planet will have you squirming in your chair and sucking in audible tight breaths as you frequently peer 1000 feet straight down with no safety rails.
This is daredevil fare at it's very finest. It's called the "Road of Skeletons" because a driver DIES while driving on it every 4 1/2 MINUTES!
SIGN UP. THIS WILL QUICKLY BECOME A FAVORITE YOU'LL SHARE WITH FRIENDS AND ONE THAT STANDS UP TO REPEATED "LUMP IN YOUR STOMACH/LUMP IN YOUR THROAT" VIEWING!
The one thing that is slightly annoying is that because it was taken straight from TV, minus the commercials, there is the recap that occurs after a commercial (for viewers who just tuned in while watching TV), yet because there was no commercial you get an unnecessary recap of what you just saw. Yet, I still give it 5 starts because for the price I can tolerate it. On the plus side, each segment of each episode is in a submenu, so you can go directly to a segment and you will know what happened beforehand due to the recap.
Just to recap, Ice Road Truckers Deadliest Roads Season i is interesting, exciting, and well worth watching.
