Default A movie about lineman.

I was looking around at movies and I thought this was interesting just because when do you see a movie about linemen?

That's great. Thanks for the post.

I saw a documentary on building the first grids in America and they said back in the 1st half of the 20th century a lineman had a 1:3 probability of dying on the job. When you look at how remote much of it is, it's understandable. God bless our linemen!

These guys are the real deal. They have to train regularly, along with completing classroom work. Forget those Hollywood movies about lineman. Hollywood is an illusion-machine.
