    I found this show to be quiet interesting to watch, i mean who doesnt dream of finding gold,haha. Sure there are some flaws in the story like assuming someone finds the motherload, which has not occured over all 3 seasons so hopefully they do on the next one, but good to watch anyways

    With its relentless narration, Gold Rush: Alaska more often plays like anaudible.com download with stunning visuals of Sarah Palin's home state as a backdrop.

    A winner. And for the Hoffmans' sake--plus family and friends along for the ride--let's hope there is gold in that hard, cold ground.

    It's entertaining enough if real-life make-it-or-break-it tension is what you're looking for in TV. That's also a bit of better-them-than-me satisfaction that comes in watching this and all the Tough Guy TV shows. Gold Rush has the added element of will-they-or-won't-they make it rich.
