Editorial Reviews

Sarah Palin's Alaska takes viewers into the country's 'final frontier' through the eyes of one of its most famous citizens - Sarah Palin. Sarah is joined by various family members as she shares the state she knows and loves. Along with Alaska's great wilderness, the Palins encounter Alaska's fascinating residents and share what its takes to thrive in the country's largest state.


1 Episode 1
Long: Sarah and Todd have a family tradition on July 4: to fish salmon in Bristol Bay, the world's biggest wild salmon run. Todd, a lifelong fisherman, is
renowned for catching the most fish. Son, Track, works to earn the title of captain on his father's boat.

2 Episode 2
Long: Sarah escapes her busy schedule to spend quality time with her youngest daughter, Piper. Together with husband, Todd, they go salmon fishing in
bear country. Later, Sarah and Todd climb one of Denali's most challenging peaks.

3 Episode 3
Long: Sarah is packing the RV and taking her family on a weekend road trip of white water rafting, and ATV'ing. Later, Sarah and her youngest
daughter, Piper, will meet some Iditarod champions and go dog sledding on a nearby glacier.

4 Episode 4
Long: Sarah along with her husband, Todd, and daughter, Willow, go to a remote logging camp on Alaska's Afognak Island to get a taste of the Alaskan
logging industry. Sarah cuts down Sitka Spruce trees and operates dangerous logging equipment on the island.

5 Episode 5
Long: Sarah welcomes Kate Gosselin and her children to Alaska. To prepare for a camping trip with the kids, Sarah takes Kate to a bear safety class for
rifle practice. Then Kate and the kids experience the wilderness braving the challenges of camping in Alaska.
6 Episode 6
Long: Sarah, her brother, Chuck, and their kids go to Nome hunting for gold. The plan: to find enough to make Sarah's mom an anniversary gift. Chuck
leads the way panning for gold then to Valdez; kayaking a glacier that was once part of the 1890's Gold Route.

7 Episode 7
Long: Sarah and family take a road trip to famous Homer, Alaska. There they meet a halibut fishing family, who invite Sarah and oldest daughter,
Bristol, deep sea fishing. This welcome adventure proves just the right tonic for mother and daughter bonding.

8 Episode 8
Long: Sarah's freezer is almost empty and winter is approaching. She embarks on an epic caribou hunting trip with her father, Chuck and friend Steve
Becker. They travel 500 miles from the nearest city, above the Arctic Circle, in search of a caribou for food.

I must start off by saying that the only reason I initially turned on the show in the first place was b/c I was hoping for good "entertainment" and that it'd be a fun show to make fun of. But during the second episode I watched, I began to develop a soft spot for Sarah and her family and her gorgeous state. Although I don't necessarily agree with Palin on the topic of politics, I still like her as a human being. This show does a great job of showing her amazing home state of Alaska and definitely makes me want to go there some day. In each episode, she goes on some sort of wilderness adventure with her family. I think the world would be a better place if all families did fun things like that together. I encourage you to watch the show with an open heart and an open mind.

I happen to love this show! It shows the beauty of Alaska, along with Sarah raising her kids at the same time. AShe is a real trooper and this show shows it. I hope this show lasts more than just 8 episodes!

5.0 out of 5 stars Do Take This Trip To Gorgeous Alaska!! June 18, 2011
By CJ
Format:DVD
I had not seen this when it aired on TV, so I was happy to see it went to DVD.
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!

Although I was raised in a conservative Christian family and my mother adores Sarah Palin, I was not a huge fan of hers. I share her values, but I am not persuaded that she has the legal and political skill and prowess; she would be another W. at best.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Average Americans can Excel in Alaska January 31, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This 8-episode series does a masterful job of demonstrating that an average American family can have the absolute best time of their life in Alaska!
Ignore all political biases - and be Fair. This "Travel" series, from a "Family" perspective, illustrates how much fun, fulfillment, enjoyment and challenges that any family, of any mental or physical skill level can get so much of from Alaska. The journey to Alaska and cost may be prohibitive for many people, but there are many things beyond compare to the "lower 48" that can be everyday events in any Alaska adventure.
Simple walks, hikes or drives will be the most unforgetful journeys of a lifetime for anyone who has even the slightest interest in Nature. Sarah and her family demonstrate this in a peaceful, genuine, down-to-earth level. I wish I was part of that family.
This is one of the best "Travel" series I've ever seen in my life... and I've seen them all!
Sarah was the centerpiece of this series, and sometimes the footage downplays the family interactions in the interest of time or showing more nature activities... but the interactions that are shown are true and not shaped for television.

5.0 out of 5 stars What Do You Want? April 10, 2012
Format:DVD
This is a great show. Geez! What do you want? I guess you can make this as complicated as you want to, but for me....this was as simple as it gets. Beautiful photography, good music, and a basic overall message of hope and inspiration. If you don't get that from this series, you need to move to a Gulag in Russia for a while or something.

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.
