"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.

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.

I got sucked into this miniseries when it aired on the History channel last winter and come August, I was backpacking the Chilkoot Trail. Yep, I'd never even heard of the Chilkoot Trail prior to this movie and I enjoyed it enough to travel from VA to Alaska and embark on an epic 5 day backpacking trip I'll never forget.

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.

The material and the subject matter was commendable. I found it difficult to swallow because the characters were so perfect...even the dirt was clean. Alaska / Yukon is one of my favorite subject s of interest so it came off to me as acting and not very realistic. Needs more nobody's, folks that have spent real time in adverse conditions, weathered characters. Even so I give it stars because I'd like to see more of programs along this line.
