But that aside, you'll enjoy following the adventures of Miles Challenger in an Alaskan mining town. The series is very clean, which is hard to find these days, but is so much more realistic and entertaining then another similar version of Jack London's book White Fang (Three-Disc Edition).
Shane Meier does a pretty good job acting.
This adaptation of Call of the Wild is inspired by Jack London's classic novel, updated here to focus on Myles Challenger and Buck. The quality, acting, scenery, pacing, cinematography and ensemble cast are all excellent.
As the show progresses, all of the characters' complexities are revealed slowly but steadily, like the layers of an onion. Much like the Yukon miners panning for gold, the dust falls away to reveal the characters' hearts of gold.
This show is a refreshing character-driven series with equal amounts of adventure, suspense, action, drama, tenderness, and humor. And while it is a family show, there are some scenes which may be upsetting to sensitive viewers (although interviews and articles about the show indicate that the distressing scenes were simulated and no harm came to the animals, thankfully). Some of that is to be expected since this is a story that takes place in the harsh wilderness of the Yukon, after all.
Special mention must be made about Kavic, the Malamute/Wolf hybrid who plays Buck. This dog is magnificent. Buck's interaction with, and fidelity to, Miles are the show's emotional core. And Kavic's eyes are so soulful and expressive.
I was saddened to learn that only 13 episodes of this series were produced. The thirteenth episode ends with a bit of a cliffhanger, and the ensemble cast works so well together, so it would have been wonderful to have seen this series continue on to a second season and beyond.
Don't miss this one. Kudos to an excellent cast and crew for making this series.
main characters are all very likeable..This especially includes the dog
Buck who may be part wolf and the young guy who loves him.
This series is not the same as the book by Jack London. It is
however a type of TV show that can be enjoyed by young and
I recommend this show to all who love dogs.
