This three-part mini series/ (6 episodes) - (set in the late1890s) centers on the friendship of two adventurers, Bill Haskell and Byron Epstein, as they travel Northwest during the Klondike Gold Rush. Along the way they must navigate harsh conditions, unpredictable weather and desperate, dangerous characters.

Format:DVD
"Klondike" is a six part miniseries that aired on the Discovery Channel over three nights. From executive producer Ridley Scott, I had very high hopes that "Klondike" would be the must-see dramatic event of the television season. I have heard many people completely dismiss the program due to factual errors and/or inaccuracies. These complaints are, perhaps, more valid since this appeared on the Discovery Channel which is not known for scripted programming but for documentary-like productions (in fact, this was touted as their first scripted miniseries endeavor). I, as a casual viewer, was not particularly bothered about the precise factual details presented but was willing to accept this as a purely fictional entertainment loosely based on real life events. So that is how I am judging "Klondike." As the series begins, I thought that there was enormous potential in the storyline and I really enjoyed the set-up. For me, though, the longer the show progressed, the less I liked it. There are plenty of good elements (notably the filming location and several strong performances), but I found the plotting and characters to be very inconsistent--almost maddeningly so.

As the series opens, we meet our intrepid hero Bill Haskell (Game of Throne's Richard Madden) as he and his best friend (an effective Augustus Prew) decide to embark on an adventure to make them rich beyond their wildest dreams. Near the turn of the century (late 1890's), they join the fray of fortune hunters exploring the uncharted Yukon Territory. As they make their way across the vast wilderness, the scenery is impressive and "Klondike" is absolutely captivating. Eventually, they reach their destination and face challenges that are both unforeseen and somewhat nefarious.

All the comments I've read here ... I most certainly agree with.

It was also, VERY hard to ignore the unbelievably gorgeous wardrobes of some of the actors, particularly the character of Bellinda who looked like she stepped out of Kate Middleton's palace. In fact they they could be twins separated at birth, who now have their makeup done by the same professional cosmetologist.

There is a natural beauty in women which is not enhanced by pancake makeup, carefully waxed eyebrows and all the rest. We are supposed to be looking back at History...as it was. Yet, every time one of the perfectly manicured female actors showed up, the "reality" of it was destroyed and I could only stare and wonder how a director such as Ridley Scott or Discovery could have let that happen.

I will finish watching all the episodes because of Tim Roth, the scenery and the educational aspect. This could have been a GREAT series...but Hollywood Glamour reared it's fake face.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a "Deadwood" March 12, 2014
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
But we watched 2 episodes hoping for a moderate-high level of entertainment & authenticity. I'm a HUGE Tim Roth fan but in this role I feel sorry that he's taken the part it is so cliche.
For those who've seen Deadwood you know how captivating the characters, storyline, and roughness are. For those who haven't yet, skip Klondike and rent Deadwood.
I didn't feel the characters in Klondike were compelling. They were understandable, but not compelling. The dialogue was pedantic, the plot line not engaging. I was looking a series with characters worthy of rooting for or hating. Instead, milktoast Klondike characters perform predictable actions. 1 or more individuals get into trouble, the vilians are either directly or indirectly to blame, and we go on to the next scene.
