Funny, moving, painful and raucous, Truckers tells stories of real life, of ordinary people pushed to extremes. In each episode one of our truckers undergoes a life changing journey and we are along for the ride. In an age when technology would make us seem ever more connected, the series uses the truck driver, alone in his cab, as a way to explore how isolated we can become within modern society and the importance of real human connection. These are powerful, moving stories, but the tone is always joyous and each story is one of redemption.
Excellent cast and well written. You genuinely want to know more about the characters and their circumstances. A strong cast who make the characters believable. Set against the background of a small business recently inherited by a graduate after his father passes away, he is confronted by a succession of trials and tribulations which he has to overcome. There are a couple of underlying romantic connections and small revelations that you know will be explored in detail as each episode airs. The format of focusing on one character each week works well and provides a more rounded insight into that character. Looking forward to further episodes.
