Great but Tainted by the Treadways
16 July 2013 | by See all my reviews

I watch the entire 9 episodes and the disappointing part of the entire series is that the Treadways were not the the first choice, as it was evident after and during the show, they had only the thoughts of how they could make money from the experience. The original couples were matched for how well they thought alike and could work together. The Treadways,throughout the series always seem to be trying to prove themselves, and in many ways brought far to much of their 20 century baggage with them. Alana and Frank Logie from the beginning truly wanted to experience and absorb the adventures and hardships of the pioneers, There was and it was felt in the show the dislike and almost hatred of the Treadways by Alana, and at times even Frank. Alana and Frank faded away, in some ways I am sure that they felt the time wasted and spoiled by the Treadways, it is unfortunate that the original couple chosen had the issue that prevented them from taking part in the show, I am sure it would of been a deeper experience for those that did watch, as it would of for those participating.
