This series was probably very good but it has a flaw.
Even though it clearly states on the box that it has subtitles, it doesn't.
So for a person that is hearing impaired, I couldn't follow along without having the TV on with the volume on a very high setting.
So don't get this if you are hearing impaired.

Disappointing. The cover picture is so beautiful, but I found the disks contained nothing positive about Alaska. They focused exclusively on the harshness of this unique place and the speaker kept saying everything in ridiculous hyperbole...very annoying, one-sided, and unrealistic.

This series should be renamed 'Alaska - Eff Yeah!'.

This series is more of a focus on the risk taking adventures, jobs and general bad ideas of extreme sports enthusiasts than the breath taking beauty and power of the State.

The state of Alaska has been better served in other documentaries. This is a compilation of several Discovery Channel docs on the state, and as is often the case, some episodes are better and more informative then others. A couple are essentially little more then extended video slide shows without narration, while one's a docudrama. The episodes suffer, unfortunately, from quick cut editing and shaky cam techniques, which tend to be typical of the channel. One episode in particular annoyed me: the presence of Les Stroud, the outdoors waste of oxygen from the Survivor Man series. Is it too much to wish this moron would fall down a crevasse?
