Klondike (Discovery Channel) Series Finale 2014 Review

And the award for most depressing miniseries of the year goes to Klondike.

Nature always wins, was my takeaway from this dedolate tale. Humans pillage the land, some turn into criminals, others maintain their integrity, but they all die. They fall through the ice like Meeker, end up shot over a claim like Byron or just freeze to death because they don’t have the common sense to treat the men in their service with respect like The Count. The best anyone can hope for is to offer something back to the world, even if it is nothing more than hope, as did the Reverend. He dies too, but at least he gets to witness his funeral and see the impact he left on the town.
