Product Description

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.

4.0 out of 5 stars IRT Deadliest Roads Aug. 18 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I quite enjoyed this series. Hard to believe such roads exist and are used to such an extent. Have a new respect for Rich Yemm, was impressed with his kindness to the local children. I think Lisa should have left her dog at home and should have kept her spotter. There was no need to take such chances and involve the other drivers. I couldn't believe that Alex would even consider going there in the first place. His experience was driving in isolation. He did the right thing to go home. The guy from the south was pretty cool. Am giving the video as a gift and will borrow it back to watch again.

Not a bad video, too much of the same thing for me, but my husband is happy with it, that's what matters, as it was his choice.

1.0 out of 5 stars never seen anyhing less stupid May 13 2012
Format:DVD
Deathliest roads Yungas,Bolivia: I am European, living for 7 years in Bolivia, knowing these roads very well and have never seen anyhing less stupid sold as documentary. The producers sent US-truckdrivers to Latin America, who have no understanding of foreign cultures, about truck driving in the mountains, who represent the scum of the US-society. These guys sell themselves as heros, use roads that are used by Bolivian truck drivers everyday without making a great deal out of it. Fortunately I know that there are also other US-Americans out in this world, not only these barbaric, uncultivated, ignorant RAMBOS! This show is the worst possible advertising for US culture.

5.0 out of 5 stars Makes the Dalton look like a parking lot. June 24 2011
Format:Blu-ray
I downloaded a few episodes a few months back and was excited to hear that it was being released on Blu-Ray. This show is insane and gives the watcher a glimpse into another world. Yes, I mean another "world", lol. I have alot of respect for these drivers who risked their lives to prove that no road was too hard. I highly recommend this to anyone who enjoys Ice Road Truckers.

5.0 out of 5 stars It doesn't get any WILDER than THIS! ENJOY!!!!!! Jan. 29 2011
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD
THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU! (FOR RELEASING THIS 5 STAR ENTERTAINMENT MASTERPIECE.)

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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wow. Aug. 28 2011
By C.L. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This really shows you what it's like to drive in India--there are no rules, other than you should generally drive on the left side of the road. The drivers (Lisa, Rick, Dave, Alex) are diverse enough that their way of handling the insanity makes it interesting...though the insanity itself is interesting. The "what-if" special effects are meant to add excitement and danger, but really, there was enough excitement and danger that it wasn't needed. One of the drivers doesn't make it past the first day, and only one driver makes it to the end. Along the way there are rockslides, avalanches, road closures, traffic jams, accidents, fights, breakdowns (mechanical and emotional), and always sketchy roads--usually with a massive drop off on one side. I thoroughly enjoyed the Deadliest Roads Season 1 and have a new appreciation for these drivers, as well as a better understanding of what it's like to drive in India.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wild ride Aug. 9 2014
By Jerry G - Published on Amazon.com
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a wild ride of a show , I like the drivers and what they go through delivering supplies in India on the high mountain passes. It also shows you how rude people can be on the roads and explains why many truck drivers get ulcers. After watching this you will know why but it also shows how life is like in India and what overpopulation looks like.

This season of IRT is my favorite, because it is so hard to watch. Very exciting and frightening at the same time. I recommended it to people all the time.
