    Not Good - Not Bad.
    But not as good as we hoped or expected.
    Not sure where the blame should rest ? A rather disjointed affair - with unnecessary peripheral sub-plots/stories. We usually blame the DIrector don't we. But some of the writing seems weak.

    Definitely a let down given the cast, the drama-rich setting, and Ridley Scott's involvement. Its a paint by numbers miniseries with a bigger budget.

    It has its moments - with this cast, how could you not - but is more miss than hit.

    Klondike delivers its dramatic bounty more effectively and compactly [than Black Sails], capitalizing on some of Discovery's favorite obsessions: dangerous vocations, gold prospecting and harsh Alaska-adjacent terrain, in a fictionalized account of the 1897 gold rush.

    It’s too late to scrub some of the dialogue, though.... Klondike isn’t always this way. Its one-liners can be nifty in spots.... The miniseries also has some engaging supporting characters in grifter Soapy Smith (Ian Hart) and Haskell’s ad hoc mine mate, Joe Meeker (Tim Blake Nelson).

    Klondike isn’t half as good a televised novel as it is a parade of landscape photography punctuated by archetypal Western exploits.
