The Real Home on the Range
2 August 2002 | by vidgamer992@aol.comSee all my reviews

What's more dangerous than Survivor? More intimate than Big Brother? It's `Frontier House'! PBS offers a quality reality show in the vein of those previous hits. This is a must see show. This is totally different than any of the shows on today. If you want a true reality show that is also different, then Frontier House is the show to watch. I loved every minute of the show and wished it could have been longer. This show focuses on the complexity and depth of human nature as it faces new challenge everyday.

The show depicts what life was like for the early American's of the frontier. Three families are given a chance to relive this amazing experience. The virtual frontier was recreated using period experts to show an accurate representation of the west.

There are no challenges for food or gifts, no alliances to backstab each other or any ratings booster. The show does show how the families lived, worked, played and interacted with each other over the five months on the frontier. We are treated to real emotions that show that life wasn't always easy on the range. Can three families coexist with each other being their only neighbors? The ultimate goal is to see who can survive and thrive on the range.
