My Favorite out of 3
21 November 2013 | by treeguy710See all my reviews

I really look forward every week for this show, among my other dramas and comedies and such. But Life Below Zero, is one of my top 5 of the week. I compare it to two other shows which both happen to end with "Men", and this is BY FAR my favorite. out of 3. I am always rewinding and sometimes it takes me 2 hours to watch an episode. Please keep this show on. Thank you. 10 out of 10!!! This is one those shows that can take you away from what is going on in your life as of now. So some one could label it a fantasy-reality documentary-drama. When I sit back and dream of getting away from it all, this all, I see myself going and living a life like the Bassich couple, a lot of work but that is what keeps them, & everyone, warm. Remember it's life below zero.
