Poor characters, poor situation, poor production value.
Can't root for the main guys cause: (1) they remind you of the overgrown meatheads that bullied people in highschool, and (2) they were previously millionaires who lost their money in something that was overvalued in the first place. Now they try to the same thing again, in a dangerous third world country. George especially bothers me, as his arrogance and anger may someday leave his children fatherless.
I tried to feel bad for the wives being left behind and in debt, but they're the ones that chose to marry these knuckleheads in the first place. From the looks of it, they probably met at the gym. The only ones you can feel for at all are the kids.
I saw only the pilot, but that was enough for me. Even though gold mining is very interesting to me, this did nothing to satisfy. I'll stick with waiting for the next episode of Gold Rush Alaska. If you haven't seen "The Jungle" special that was done for that show, its well worth the watch. Maybe someday that show and their team of 50 crew will produce a quality program about mining in the jungle.
