Klondike review

Let me start off by admitting I agreed to review this because Rob Stark was in it...  Well okay the guy who plays Rob Stark.  Yes I love Game Of Thrones and will watch a movie just to see more of my favorite actors.  With that being said I'm glad I agreed to review this, the series was incredible, the acting was astonishing and the story line was extraordinary! 

I have now watched it twice and over the weekend I have lent it out to family for the 4th time.  Everyone loves it :)

From Executive Producer Ridley Scott, Discovery Channel’s First-Ever Scripted Series KLONDIKE Arrives As A Two-Disc Collection On Blu-ray And DVD June 10

Originally having premiered on Discovery, Klondike dives into the brutal, thrilling, get-rich-or-die-trying world of the late 1890s gold rush.  Based on Charlotte Grey’s best-selling book, Gold Diggers: Striking It Rich In The Klondike, the mini-series was directed by Simon Cellan Jones (Boardwalk EmpireThe Borgias), and follows two men, Bill Haskell (Madden) and Byron Epstein (Prew), who risk everything in the hopes of finding gold in the Yukon.

A two-disc set, the Blu-ray and DVD also features exclusive cast interviews, behind-the-scenes looks and a special addition entitled Discovering Klondike that explores the fascinating history of Yukon’s gold rush and how it was brought to the screen for Discovery Channel’s Klondike.  

Based on actual events, Klondike tells the story of the last great Gold Rush in history. In 1897 two friends make the perilous journey through North American wilderness to the Klondike boom town Dawson City, "The Paris of the North" where murder, revenge, riches and redemption await.
