New show on Discovery: Klondike
« on: January 21, 2014, 02:00:35 AM »
Here's a capsule description with the really relevant parts bolded:

Klondike follows the lives of two childhood best friends, Bill and Epstein in the late 1890s, as they undertake the next gold rush capital in the untamed Yukon Territory. This man-versus-nature tale places our heroes in a land full of undiscovered wealth, but ravaged by harsh conditions, unpredictable weather and desperate, dangerous characters including greedy businessmen, seductive courtesans and native tribes witnessing the destruction of their people and land by opportunistic entrepreneurs

So they filed off the serial numbers and remade Martin Chuzzlewit? Dickens must be thrilled.

You are the result of 3 billion years of evolutionary success. Act like it.
