Storyline

Follow the men of Tanana, a remote village in Alaska by the Yukon River, on their everyday life throughout the four seasons. Every second counts, because as winter is getting closer and the days are getting shorter, they only have so much time to gather enough supplies to last through months of total darkness and extreme coldness. They will have to hunt, fish and trap to survive, and there is always a new problem to encounter with every task. Some will have to fight for their lives, while others will have to protect what's theirs from the wilderness.

29 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

What can I say? A fun concept. The obstacles are many for the stars of this survival show. You see the best in human nature shine through. I suggest you enjoy the first five or so episodes for what they are and let your mind play around with the opportunities there can be to make something interesting. An austere, gripping series about surviving against the odds. The real centerpiece of the film is its stars. This is a story about a place most people might not be able to conceive as all the featured stars struggle. It's not quite worth 8 out of 10, so I give it a solid 7 out of 10 and urge you to check it out if you can find it.
