Editorial Reviews

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.

Customer Reviews

Story is great so is the acting.
Rick
Klondike is great viewing to get a real sense of what the Gold Rush in the Yukon was really like.
TLJ
Also very interesting to see the actual history behind the story and the people.

"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.

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.

I agree with other reviewers that this is a great concept and the production values and talent are high, but the writing trots out every cliche of this genre and the dialogue is, at times, just embarrassing. This is no Deadwood or even Hell on Wheels. Ridley Scott
(exec. producer) should have taken a bit more care making sure the scripts were right. One episode was enough for me.

Modern TV doesn’t seem to excite me much. This series definitely held my attention. The ability to show modern day people with the bug for reality TV what, even with some dramatization, reality in the times of the gold rush was truly like was amazing. The full circle that the story takes along with the never ending fight for survival was very well represented.

Rating based on quality of production and story.

Mostly pro's not enough con's for the dramatization to take a star.

If you like history or just have some curiosity of the times and struggle of the men and women that were part of this struggle I would recommend this to you.
