Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this rugged docuseries doesn't pull too many punches about either how hard life is in Alaska or the nature of the Alaskan character -- which still reflects the frontier mentality and is very independent and male-dominant (though the women are expected to be tough, too). Gold miners carry guns to their back-country claim to protect themselves against bears, but they don't shoot the weapons. Fishermen flirt with breaking the law to get their catch, and some do cross the line (although that scene is shown from the perspective of the officers enforcing the law). Scenes inside a salmon processing plant show a machine chopping the heads off fish and others scooping out their guts.

Sexual Content

Not applicable


None seen, but there's talk of carrying guns, and explosives are used as part of a mining operation. Fish are decapitated and gutted.


Words like "damn" and "crap shoot" are audible; there are also several bleeps -- but you can generally tell what the word was.

Social Behavior

Traditional gender roles seem to be the norm. Environmental issues are often side-stepped. Almost everyone is Caucasian, although one of the fishermen has at least some Native American family.
