Klondike (Discovery) Episode 1 Review

“Two men with nothing in their pockets, but a handful of hope.”

Klondike is a man versus wild versus human nature tale that does very little to distinguish itself from any other man versus wild versus human nature tale out there in its first hour. The dialogue is full of platitudes about seeking fortunes, venturing west and the dangers of the wilds of nature and man. What it does have going for it is stunning scenery and Richard Madden (Game of Thrones), perhaps the only actor aside from the great Sam Shepard, who decided not to ham up the already hackneyed dialogue. It’s not until the second hour of the premiere that the miniseries begins to find its footing.
