No matter how you feel about the Palin family, do watch this for all the beautiful footage of Alaska. This was NOT one of those odd TV family reality shows. Little time was spent inside the Palin home. You were on the road more, learning about Alaska, visiting many places throughout the state, and observing the wildlife. So well put together that you will feel you are right there in Alaska visiting. Not a home movie, amazing beautiful camera work and music.
Now keep in mind many vegetarians would have a hard time watching this. Yes, animals do get killed. I'm a vegetarian and love animals and I had to skipped over the meat scenes. It is a way of life that many city folk may not understand.
I enjoyed the Palin bunch and at times they were quite funny. Sarah's Dad is a really trooper and so young at heart. He was a delightful addition to this series.
I have to give this a 5 star rating, as I really found it to be very well done and so very interesting. This is a wonderful way to feel like you went on a great Alaskan journey!
Politics takes a back seat to simple family values and gorgeous scenery. You can't help but be impressed by the Palins and the plain simple life they lead, so unlike the typical Washington insider.
This show is the antidote to the political hype and and hatchet jobs of the mainstream media. Definitely recommended, whether you're a liberal or a conservative, a republican o a democrat.
America by Heart : Reflections on Family, Faith, and Flag
Northern Light: The Case For Sarah Palin
That said, this show is not about her political campaigns. It's about the human being that is Sarah Palin taking a number of exciting outdoor adventures in Alaska. Some of these adventures, such as fishing and hunting, are routine for Sarah. Some of them were clearly scheduled for the show as a new, fresh adventure that Sarah hadn't experienced much or at all before.
That Sarah is a politician is not completely lost in this show; she makes a number of comments about her career as a politician, and we see her taking on television and radio interviews from time to time as well as making the rounds with the locals making political friends. And as she narrates the show (this is her show, after all), it's a no-brainer expectation that she would regularly try to use rhetoric about her adventures in Alaska as analogous to her political career. But really this stuff takes a back seat--way back seat. You come away from this show seeing Ms Palin as Wonder Woman (one of her friends on the show calls her "Amazon Woman'), not so much "governor", "vice-president", or some other officer of the state or United States. (On the other hand, isn't that just the sort of material America needs in office? Less white collar, more blood, sweat, and tears... That's definitely the message Sarah and her followers want portrayed by this show.)
And actually, the show proves less about Sarah than about her kids.Read more ›
We are blessed with an amazing country, fantastic resources, and beautiful people. If you concentrate on the negative, you will see it....everywhere. But if you look for hope......if you look towards the future.....if you believe in good......then this series is easy to watch. It is a joy to behold.
Good grief people...relax! Why worry so much? She is not even running, yet you hate her? She has an opinion, sure. But then again, so do you. Who is really more qualified? Who has...and is...doing it?....living it as we speak? And who is in an old apartment building somewhere in Cleveland, complaining about Sarah Palin? IDIOTS!
When will YOU ever go to those places? Never!!! So enjoy the front row seat to some of the most spectacular film you could ever hope to see. Sarah is an awesome host. I would be proud if I knew as much about my state as she does about hers.
I think she would be a much more trustworthy President than the man who is in there now. She has a family value system that is strong and happy. She is NOT going to her Rev Wright, or anyone else like him. She communes with Mother Nature.....and her family. Wow...I love her for that!
What a wonderful series......really.
