Circle of Life
23 April 2014 | by yoshibuddhaSee all my reviews

Really phenomenal show that documents the life of families surviving in the wilds of Alaska. This is not Sarah Palin's Alaska; this is the real deal and the people involved are intelligent and responsible custodians of the land they inhabit; unlike most of us.

It's great to see people who hunt and gather and display 100% respect for the seriousness of their responsibility. The animal slaughter scenes are rough for some people but they do it without any "sport" whatsoever and with full disclosure of the significance of the killing and the importance of the circle of life. Otto's wife is a long-time vegetarian and she discusses her views on the killings including her understanding of it's necessity. The folks who rated this 1 star because of "the killing" are probably just extremists so please disregard them. I'm no hunter myself, but I am a omnivore and I know where my meat comes from as I do my best to buy only local, non-mass produced meats.

I find it highly hypocritical for anyone to criticize the slaughter portions of this show and then turn around and eat meat from a restaurant or buy some from a grocery store with no connection to the animal's welfare or the process involved to feed them. This show will help you understand what consuming meat really means and the real cost.
