Reality TV?[edit]

Since the show is advertised as a dramatization of the life, can it truly be considered "reality" TV? 5minutes (talk) 19:56, 14 November 2012 (UTC)

Agreed, I came to the page curious to know if there is even the smallest shred of "reality" in the program, as the moonshiners appear to be running an obviously criminal enterprise throughout.--Stevek900 (talk) 07:34, 13 December 2012 (UTC)

The "Plum Hollow Festival" is hosted at the Plum Hollow Farm, a 50 acre music park. Website is One of the sponsors is Tree and Yard Busters, the company on the side of the truck that Bill and Josh are seen driving. The website states they have a mock still they use for educating people about the history of moonshining. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 06:06, 16 December 2012 (UTC)

Agree also, it is clearly not a reality show. They are not making real moonshine, and they are just reenacting making moonshine. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Brendenhows (talkcontribs) 00:58, 20 December 2012‎ (UTC)

What do you people expect? This is still reality TV in my opinion, if Jersey Shore and the Real World are considered "Reality" then this should also. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 23:03, 8 January 2013 (UTC)


The article is not written with a neutral point of view. Most of it could have been (or perhaps was) written by the publicity department of the TV show. The episode descriptions are full of "teaser" language (like saying "until an emergency strikes" without saying what the emergency was, or referring to a "nip joint" without saying what that means, or saying "one moonshiner will come to an untimely end" without saying who it is referring to or what the "untimely end" means). The episode descriptions also contain a lot of non-objective language (like "daring", "legend", "risk it all", "ambushes", "legendary", "risk their lives", "fall prey", "giant", etc.). The description of the people in the show uses words like "gifted", "the best money can buy", "the last of the mountain men", "doing what he loves", and "top-notch". The recent edits seem to be making this problem worse. —BarrelProof (talk) 04:50, 3 December 2012 (UTC)

Most of the show and episode descriptions appear to have been copied directly from the show website. Add detailed information as available. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 01:05, 13 December 2012 (UTC)
I disagree. I don't think it's necessary to put spoilers in very brief episode summaries. If spoilers are added, they should have warnings to that effect in the header and body of that section. This section also does not seem to me to contradict the Wikipedia:Neutral point of view. I would instead call it vague. And I have no connection or desire to pursue this article. I was just searching to see if they ever started selling legit moonshine, and if so what the name brand was. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:43, 24 December 2012 (UTC)

Moonshiner X and the different still types[edit]

in the cast section there is no mention of "Moonshiner X" and there are at least 4 different types of stills used throughout both seasons, it would be nice to have a description and a comparison of the differences between the stills they use... — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 04:03, 6 December 2012 (UTC)
