Not One for the Ages
22 April 2014 | by lcassadySee all my reviews

I've read a number of great histories about the fur trade and am particularly interested in the period of western expansion between 1830 and 1910. I found cable series like "Hell on Wheels" about the building of the railroad and more especially, "Deadwood" a refreshing departure from the westerns of my childhood. They were absorbing, well written, had great characters, and contained details that approached the reality of the times. This one, Klondike, had high production values, I can say that much. But I couldn't get through to the end. I just gave up on the stiff and corny dialogue, the wooden characters, the incredibly soupy or awkward "romance," and the simple minded and predictable plot. It reminded me a little of the kind of historical dramatizations they used to make us watch in school. I'm not in school any more, and I expect something better.
