I love Discovery channel because it's so American and most of the time there's such a drama for nothing, but I have to admit that seeing Moonshiners was some kind of a surprise.

I guess that people making alcohol illegally is something that exists pretty much everywhere, but is there any truth in the whole trauma documentaries show ?
Except for one episode where they all pretend not to be actors, it really seems to me that it's just a bunch of redneck actors that fake something that might indeed exist for real.

If someone was doing something illegal, I would think the police would begin investigating. Especially if it was a series and not just a documentary.

Although the guys in the show have claimed in interviews that it's legit, it has since been determined that it isn't.
