Did anyone catch the premeir last night?

 

I was extremely impressed by what they did with the show. It's Discovery's first miniseries, and it was absolutely fantastic in its debut episode.

 

They're two hours long, and I believe it's only a 3 part miniseries. If I were you guys, I'd jump on the first segment before tonight's episode comes on at 9.

 

It stars Richard Madden (Robb Stark in GOT) amonsgt a couple of other faces that you've undoubtedly seem before.

I like just about any show dealing with Gold Prospecting.

 

However, I thought this was exceptionally well done.  I think it captures the grit of gold prospecting the way it was in Alaska.  (Not so, when gold was discovered here in North Carolina and Georgia.)

Thought it was a little melodramatic at times but overall good. Especially when compared to the other mini series that have been a let down.

Second episode wasn't as good, but still better than almost all TV not on HBO or something.

I've really enjoyed it.

 

 

I like all the gold prospecting shows.

 

I need to go to a mine one day and pan for funsies.

Okay, so do you guys watch the show with the guys in Alaska and the other group that used to be in Alaska, now they're in South America? Gold Rush, I think?

 

How does that friggin' idiot with the stupid beard keep getting investors when he hasn't proven crap in several seasons and has the leadership qualities of a 7-year old? I wouldn't let that guy sell me Girl Scout Cookies, let alone talk me into a gold mining expedition, yet these clowns keep following him all over the damn place.

 

Hell, I'd work with the one guy (the only one with half a brain), but now I'm questioning his judgment since he followed this other idiot and his father to South America. That 18-year old kid in Alaska has more sense, knowledge and skills than that stupid fugger in Guyana.

Todd has money basically. His family owned/owns a private air port and I think his dad has had success mining gold in the past. Keep in mind these guys are likely paid by Discovery as well.   Gold is a powerful motivator.

 

 

Hummm, turns out the son of a bitch is smarter than we realize.

No doubt, but why are so many of these reality TV people more than happy to be portrayed as complete buffoons for money? Are people that quick and easy to set aside any pride and integrity for a few bucks and their 15 minutes? Guess I just don't get it. I guess if I had a family to support and times were exceptionally difficult and I exhausted every other possible avenue...
