I saw this show when it was originally shown on The Animal Planet. I believe it was their first drama series, but not positive. The show isnt actually the same as the book Call of the Wild, but is an old fashioned western type series like some of us oldies used to watch as kids. Miles is a 15 year old boy with his mother and stepfather, John Thornton. They moved to the Yukon where John Thornton and his wife run their own store. John was a hero back in the days before he married and still is. The story centers on Miles trying to become his own person outside of the shadow of his stepfather and of his adventures with his dog and other characters from the town and strangers as they come in. Some of the shows were humorous and some serious....you slowly got to learn more about each of the characters throughout the series and all of the scenery is breathtaking. There are a lot of good scenes with John Thornton and his wife and she was one of the first career women. In one scene a man tells John and his wife that when he comes back he'll take him up on that homecooked meal he promised and Mrs. Thornton quickly remarked that as soon as John learns to cook then he can offer the homecooked meal. It's too bad it ended after only 13 episodes, but what a treat to have it all on dvd.

The children and I really enjoyed the series. We were disappointed though that we were left wondering what became of the characters. The series lasted one season. Well, I guess the rest is left to our imagination.

Beware, if you are looking for the version as written by Jack London, you won't find it here. There's not even a dog or a wolf named "White Fang" in the series!

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.

In today's world, I can understand why this series was canceled after 12 episodes in 2000. However, those of us who long for the simple dramas of the past, can find it refreshing to watch this series.

This was Animal Planet's first scripted series, and it's an excellent one.

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.

The CALL OF THE WILD is a very enjoyable series set in Alaska. The
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
old alike.

I recommend this show to all who love dogs.

What can I say?, if you liked the series on TV then of course you are going to like this DVD set even better, no commercials and if you choose, you can do a marathon session when the weather is poor, and watch one episode after the other from beginning to end!.
