Fascinating - I want more
7 November 2015 | by juke-86907See all my reviews

The Alaskan imagery and off-grid way of life is fascinating.

I do agree with the notion that each episode is like the next and it's a little over-dramatic to be a "reality" show, but conceptually, it's great.

I love watching and I watch this show more than other Alaska- based shows because of the railroad aspect.

I'm hoping for another season, and would love to see the show expand on that, including historical looks and scenery that most people would never otherwise see.

More Railroad-based programming would be equally as fascinating.
