    Caught the first series, makes interesting viewing if only for the scenery and the locale. The folk themselves are quite interesting too. However from what I've read it's a 'manufactured reality show'.

    Hi,yep read the comments that it's not real,every thing is staged and the actual place in Alaska is not actually owned by the family but leased by the discovery channel.
    But recently watched an episode and they put these questions to the family and they denied it was all staged.

    I guess they have some vested interests to protect, hence the denials. It's a sad state of the world that we live in with information and misinformation and the the 'fake news' movements, that it's more or less impossible to be certain of anything anymore.

    Either way, I decided that it was probably irrelevant and instead enjoy the show for what it is. The lifestyle and the pristine wilderness, which appeals to me.

    Yes have to agree,beautiful place and have to admit do enjoy watching the family and feel some what jealous of the life they lead away from the pressures of city life,not sure could handle that cold tho.

    Well it would certainly be a huge change from all of this, to hunting and gathering, but I can imagine it would bring you some peace the like of which we couldn't hope to find in this rat race. But the. Again, as you say, could you handle that cold!
