Excellent , hats off to Scott and George and the production crew . I've spent some time in a third world country and I know they're is an awful lot left out due to the editing . The heat and humidity has to have taken a toll on these guys , as we'll as the food. Safe Water to drink is a whole other issue . Hoping for season 3. I do feel sad for Scott and George...

3.0 out of 5 stars you can't take your eyes off of this train wreck
These guys make incredibly poor choices but you just can't stop watching. If you like the gold mining shows, this one is below Gold Rush but just above Bering Sea in terms of quality. It's interesting, but you just want to smack these guys some times.

1.0 out of 5 stars morons!, November 7, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Really, I mean really! Dave Thomas burned you and took 100 percent. The show should be called morons on a mission to make bad calls. Morons! Sorry! I meant... Morons! doing moronic things! I hate that you made me hope for some gold when it was never an option. Morons!

I do feel sad for Scott and George thinking more money is the answer for their problems when they should be hitting their knees and praying for guidance through this rough time in their life .

Loved every second of this show. Can't wait for a season three to aire. The one thing I don't like is that there isn't enough episodes per season.

5.0 out of 5 stars This beats Gold Rush for real life drama and suspense - no forced drama here - this is the real deal !!, February 16, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These guys don't have any mechanical skills and try to mine gold by hustling deals.
Their equipment breakdowns are much more serious threats to their season
just because they don't know how to fix stuff like the teams at Gold Rush.

They get robbed, they get shot at by various indigenous criminals and they have to negotiate
improvised roadblocks put up by villagers who won't let them pass unless they pay up.

And the seasonal rains threaten to destroy their whole mining operation. This show is incredible!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Boring, January 10, 2014

For anyone watching these shows looking for other gold rush shows, save yourself the time and don't bother watching these. These guys never actually accomplish anything. They are smart but the lack common sense.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good show, but take the reality title with a grain of salt, November 26, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I like this show, but there is a lot about it that seems staged. Also, these guys are crying poverty and how they are so down and out, but it really makes no sense because Discovery Channel is paying them $30,000 to $50,000 per show. Where I come from most people are lucky to make that per year. So don't feel too bad for these guys who have wives that look like runway models, houses that are upper, upper middle class and $60,000 vehicles. The way I look at it, if I was getting paid $50,000 per show, finding gold would be the cherry on the cake. In a sense they already found their gold by doing this show. Dave Thomas, is a very annoying character and his personality makes you want to keep watching him, but he reminds me of a slick used car salesman. So closing, if you like these shows about gold and striking it rich, you would like it, but again it is probably mostly staged, so take a lot of it with a grain of salt.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Reality about African gold mining, September 25, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Jungle Gold Season 2 (Amazon Instant Video)
Probably the most realistic view of what gold mining in Africa for foreigners is all about. Very suspenseful and edgy. Instead of worrying about getting rich the miners are suddenly afraid for their lives, It was surprising to see how much danger the team filming the show were in too. You can't help but root for all these guys.
