I have been watching gold rush Alaska for some time. After the second episode I figured this had to be a big put on. But I still kept watching to see how long they could keep their drama going before finding any gold.

So I went to the link below and read many comments about the show. From what I read the biggest joke in Haines Alaska is they are making more money doing the show than any intentions of finding gold.

If anything at all this show accomplishes is the fact not to get gold fever and wager everything on attemting to find gold when you do not know squat about finding gold or the operation of gold mining equiptment. Even the small sized equiptment.

I gotta add this from personal experience. Back in the 60s I use to invest on the Toronto stock exchange. The majority of the stocks were / are mining stock. Back then you could buy shares for pennies per share. Well I picked out a gold mining stock and purchased 4,000 shares of Majortrans gold mines. Today I have 4 1,000 share certificates framed as reminders not to buy expensive wallpaper. Green laugh

I love that show. Especially the real estate dude with the ZZ Top beard and the pissy attitude. I love when they make him do hard labor, like clearing out the river bank, while standing in the cold water.

Gold diggers it was interesting for half a show, touted as being the most popular show this year on Discovery, me thinks they be fibbing, can't watch anymore for more than 10secs.. Now American pickers........... that is another story, Mike, Frank and Danielle aren't miserable petty or drama prone like the diggers.
