The breathtaking beauty of Alaska sometimes hides the fact its winters can be incredibly harsh, especially for those who live in the state's outlying areas. "Alaska: The Last Frontier'' perfectly illustrates this reality, as the series profiles life for the Kilcher family in the isolated community of Homer. For four generations the Kilchers have lived off what their 600-acre homestead has provided, but cultivating that living is never easy. Led by patriarch Atz Kilcher and his brother Otto, the family spends the short summer and fall gardening, hunting and fishing for food, gathering supplies from the land and preparing their animals for the winter. Viewers, who may or may not have a fancy phone by their side while watching on their big-screen high-def TV, also see the Kilchers living off the grid, where running water and electricity aren't daily staples, nor is contact with the outside world. Atz, by the way, is the father of music superstar Jewel, who does not appear on the program.

The shows I watch the most and more than once. These shows are current and canceled and have watched many times. During a current shows break I'll watch a season just to hold me over till it's back on. Some of these canceled shows I watch once a year.

Seriously, how many shows about Alaska do we need? Apparently, all of them.

Reality TV at it's finest...

These shows are the gawkers delays of TV shows, horrible shows that I cant't not watch. Mindless drivel to watch when no action-adventure, crime solving, sci-fi, drama, comedy or educational shows are available.

Well... not all documentaries exactly. This is also where I stash the few reality shows I watch :)
