Funny, moving and at times painful - Truckers tells stories of real life, ordinary people pushed to extremes. In each episode, one character undertakes a 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.
Runtime: 60 minutes
Truckers - List of CB slang - Netflix
CB slang is the distinctive anti-language, argot or cant which developed among users of Citizens Band radio (CB), especially truck drivers in the United States during the 1970s and early 1980s. The slang itself is not only cyclical, but also geographical. Through time, certain terms are added or dropped as attitudes toward it change. For example, in the early days of the CB radio, the term “Good Buddy” was widely used. Nicknames given or adopted by CB radio users are known as 'Handles'. Although this practice is all but dead, many truck drivers will call each other 'Hand', or by the name of the company they are driving for. CB and its distinctive language started in the USA but was then exported to other countries including Mexico, Germany and Canada.
