The Return of Shelby The Swamp Man (History) – Premieres 11th October
A spinoff of The Legend of Shelby the Swamp Man, this follows Shelby Strong as he returns to helping folk on the Louisiana Bayou after spending two years in isolation.
Teamed up with his trainee Angela, Shelby goes about getting his business back in order. As he gets his old boats back up and running, shows Angela how to fell trees and uses his new boat The Leviathan in a variety of ways.
In between getting his business up and running, Shelby helps out locals by getting various supplies for them, using his jet boats to smash up some illegal setups found in the Bayou and helping a historian dig up items found in the water.
If you’ve seen any of the other programmes featuring Shelby, then this is more of the same, as he does over-the-top solutions to the problems thrown at him. Overall it’s one of the trashier bits of programming that History pumps out, where it does exactly what you’d expect and is generally background viewing at best.
