Monday 1/21: I really like this show and think they have done a fantastic job. I so enjoyed the relationship between Bill and Epstein, the quirkiness and fun times they have and was so glad that Bill wants to get justice for his death. I know that it’s not the eskimos but you can tell others aren’t believing that. I enjoyed that scene around the camp fire with them. Belinda is going to be one of my favorite characters also. Talk about having to be tough. She isn’t one to be taken lightly. I can’t imagine what those miners went through back in that time period. The scenery is so beautiful there. I was proud of the father also for putting up the cross and deciding to stay in the building that he made the church. The stealing and lying that goes on is just amazing, but I think that really was what it was like. The guy that keeps showing up trying to buy the claim is sure a player I tell you. One of my favorite scenes was the both of them getting on that sled and going down the mountain. It also amazes me, and I don’t know why, the bigotry that Epstein had to put up with. For some reason up in that area I didn’t think that would go on. I was also glad that Bill got his boots back for him after that fool stole them. What a change of life style for the both of those boys. They are going to have a hit on the hands with this show if you ask me.
Tue/Wed 1/22 and 23: Well I think this was a good series. I guess it’s all over with now. Wouldn’t you know that Bill would end up in Florida with an orange farm. I really liked Meeker, as much as Ep, and it was brilliant of him to hide those gold bars in the shitter LOL. One of my favorite scenes was the eskimo boy with the guard and him naming his baby Freedom. I really enjoyed that. Belinda is one tough cookie and I was surprised that she didn’t go with Bill and wouldn’t you know that she would end up a house keeper and broke. Those times up there must have been so hard on everyone and people just moved around so much. The diseases and filth up there must have been something. I never figured that the neighbor miner was the one that killed Ep and I was glad it was Belinda and not Bill that shot him. Soupy was something else also. Always a con man I tell you. The count sure did get his when he paid Belinda that 6K. I guess he must have gone broke. The music and scenery were absolutely wonderful in this show. I also liked that whore that went to work for the priest and that funeral they had for him was wonderful. That guy walking down the street leading the procession was good. I was amazed that Bill went back to the Klondike and never was heard from again. And poor Meek dying in the water and those gold bars going down the river. Was sad but at least he and Bill did what they wanted to do. I enjoyed this and hope that they can do something with more seasons like this. Thanks for the info on GF’s dad. I didn’t know that. Too bad he didn’t hit it big
