Storyline

A journey deep into Alaska's bush, where naturalist and adventurer Billy Brown, along with his wife, Ami, and their seven children, chooses to live life on his own terms, connected to wild nature and bonded to each other. The family of nine strives to be self-sufficient against all odds- often shunning modern society to live off the wilderness and to walk where no man has ever walked before. After the tragic death of his parents and sister that left him orphaned at 16, Billy Brown vowed to live life on his own terms and create his own family to reclaim the love that he lost. With Ami by his side, Billy traveled the lower 48 states and eventually found home in the sprawling landscape of the last frontier, where they have spent most of the last 30 years raising their children. "Our family is doing what is natural for human beings to do. We survive on what we hunt, fish, trap and barter for," Brown says. "We explore, we wander, we live. If you think about it, it's the life we were meant ... Written by Jiilo_Kim

One Stupid Disaster After Another
15 February 2017 | by marldurnSee all my reviews

It's hard to enjoy the sensible, good things the Browns accomplish because they are constantly doing so much more destructive, stupid, ignorant stuff that people just don't normally do while living/surviving in the wild with the bare necessities. For me, all the ignorance overrides the good stuff. I can't begin to express the letdown, so I usually just shake my head & change the channel to get my head back together. This makes their show just a big joke most of the time. The show raises the question of how much is real & how much is played up due to all the misfortune that occurs, especially since they are supposed to be living in an environment that is so harsh & has so many obstacles on a constant basis. This repetitive break & fix lifestyle just doesn't fit any way of life & especially the Alaskan way of life. If it does, then these people need to find another way more suitable for their mentality. I watch all the other Alaskan shows & this show looks like a "Three Stooges" version as compared to others! Maybe that's what they strive for, who knows! I am an older person that grew up on a farm doing farm work by hand & with horses so I am quite familiar with basic means of survival & I am quite proud of it. Success was based on doing things correctly the first time for numerous reasons & we did not constantly fix stupid/drastic mistakes or take so lightly of them if something did go wrong. Granted, this was West Virginia & not in Alaska, but it was still rugged & offered a lot of lessons to be learned about life. I've probably seen every episode of the Browns so I'm not just basing my statements on lack of info. Enough said I guess. I felt as if I had to vent.
