If you like "Duck Dynasty," give these offbeat shows a try

What it is: Lovable still-hand Tickle (whom fans of "Moonshiners" will recognize) stumbles on a hidden stash of moonshine in the woods, which isn't exactly like finding a pot of high-proof gold at the end of the rainbow. What's a moonshiner to do with all this stuff? He recruits his friends Howard and Mo to help him find ways to profit from his discovery while distracting locals (and possibly whoever made the moonshine) from what he's up to. Wackiness erupts!
Why it's weird: I'm pretty sure that if you don't want anyone to know you've stolen someone else's moonshine, and you don't want law enforcement to know you're making moonshine, you might not want to do a reality TV show about doing both of these things. Unless, you know, it's pretty much entirely scripted. Or something.
Why it's awesome: It's pure sitcom, but in this case the characters are more likable and vividly drawn than most of the crap on network TV. It's surprisingly gentle humor. Moonshine may be illegal, but it doesn't attract the same criminal element as, say, meth.
