Love of the show, the people and Alaska
19 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

I love the whole show and admire these people. Sue Aikens is tough and a very good philosopher. It takes a special person to live like Sue and Erik. Andy and Kate and the Hailstones are separate teams. All are to be admired. I have been to Alaska twice, but never in these places or conditions. I love Alaska. I like to think I could also survive as these and many others who live there, but my age is against me now. I would still like to give it a try though. I used to think that if I had the money to get started, I would do it anyway, but my wife's health would not tolerate the conditions. This type of show is what should be on television instead of all the stupid pointless comedy and drama shows that promote violence and unrealistic life.
