There is absolutely no way there is a profit being made but there wouldn't be a show anymore if that were important. Two thumbs down wayyyyy down! They seem to just jump in and go to work! Tony Beets takes a convoy of military trucks on a treacherous journey to hunt down parts for his monster dredge. Suffice to say it barely holds 22 minutes of interest for me. Tony Beets takes a convoy of military trucks on a treacherous journey to hunt down parts for his monster dredge. This reminds me of the Documentary where that idiot decided he is Yogi's best friend and is kissing all the Bears and naming them,then one eats him.
Otherwise the hoffmans bring down the ratings and the shows quality, I usually fast forward any parts with a hoffman in it. Give Thurber, Freddy and Dave the hoffmans slot and Gold Rush will be back at the top! Do as I said before and introduce an anti-social person in that morons crew and just film. Aload of twerps get some money together, decide to go to alaska and try to mine Gold. They presume their audience is as ignorant as they are. But don't confuse my rant as hating this show, I love it but if the producers are reading this I have something that will help your ratings without having to make them act out drama. Presenting the contract, in some cases, can be understood as signing it yourself. All these guys around with lifetimes worth of experience and the kid gets promoted higher than his father? They may have even refilmed that part.
They are just stupid, from todds laziness to jack thinking he can smell gold, what a moron. Nobody, except maybe a Hollywood writer, is that stupid. In the fist season they only found 14 ounces of gold worth about twenty thousand dollars but in actuality each minute of commercials probably brings the production company about that much money so everyone in this production is doing quite well. The writers have gone out of their way to create fake drama in this show. For the amount of material they supposedly moved and the pitiful amount of gold recovered they have picked the worst spot on earth, maybe the entire solar system. This whole idea was a mess- Starting with bringing kid's then killing things that live there because of the kids and they all follow the old guys lack of responsibility.
Can they tough it out long enough to find any gold? Even just one episode, it will make you happy to know that even on your worst day you will be more intelligent than any of these guys on their best day. The crew that lost their claim because the leader forgot to pay for it, is particularly retarded. When are the Producers of shows like these willing to admit how much damage they are doing by contributing to it. The narration is well done and the music is fantastic. Maybe the story-line isn't nothing new to people but it's really interesting to watch and I completed the whole season in just two evenings. Season 3 is a must, as this show just seems to now be hitting it's stride.
I'd rather chip out the gold for an average of 1300 an ounce throughout many months than sit on it and sell it for 1250 an ounce at the end of the season when I had to make all my debts disappear in 30 days or less. Parker is developing a A-class asshole attitude, if some of this is real it is interesting to ponder why - ambition, expectations, camera fever, narcissism or something else? All the desperation of mortgaging their lives, taking a great financial risk, and possibly failing in their efforts to make money are all fake. The problem is, by the time this makes it's way through the courts, the mining season is over, and you definitely don't have a contract offered to you the next season. But in Alaska, everything is a struggle. Hells' bells, the Teletubbies have more smarts! I've enjoyed Storage Wars, I begrudgingly watch Pawn Stars but just find that show to be all contrived, and Ricks Dads is unintelligible, talks like his mouth is full of marbles, and with Rick's laugh, who needs canned laughter or a laugh-track, he laughs at all his own jokes! Feeling slightly stupid to be a sucker for this show. There's a Certified asshole if ever there was one.
The stupid ones end up blowing them selves up or falling down a mine shaft. It fires right up, and again they go right to work with it! Gold Rush Alaska is filmed and shot extremely well, it has great flow and has a terrific pace to it. And why the hell did they bring their kids up there. In a last ditch effort to provide for their families, they've sold everything they can and invested in a gold claim and the machinery to mine it. Reminds me of a bunch of construction workers destroying the lands of Alaska. Parker offers Todd a deal. You might be able to sue, not only for the original contract to be honored, but in the instance of lost revenue, you might get that as well.
Never once have they checked to see if they are actually getting any gold. They also never sell the gold throughout the season to cover costs like most operations. As a show, it's like most of this channels slop, somewhat watchable. Showing more of what actually happens including the boring stuff, and scrap the forced drama would have made the show better. What's happening on Parker, Tony, and Todd's crew are all happening at different times perhaps weeks apart - and sometimes across weeks like the dredge retrofitting. It wasn't super apparent in previous seasons, since each gold count was just what the crew was reporting, and not really comparing across crews.
. This would be especially true when you have video evidence of the person who presented the contract discussing the fact that they wrote it and sent it off to be signed, only to change their mind later.

Maybe I'm just biased because I've been prospecting and mining gold in the Mojave Desert since the 1970's. Living off the grid in one of the wildest and most unforgiving wildernesses on earth, they hope to rekindle the American Dream and start a 21st Century Gold Rush.
Instead we have yet another badly written, poorly acted, soap opera. In this case they faced like tons of problems but they're spirit was unbreakable and the mechanic - amazing. They just want to have that finale pile of gold to show viewers. Raping the lands, killing the wildlife and teaching that to their kids, they talk about friendships yet leave one guy sleeping in a tent in the middle of Alaska where the Bears outnumber the humans-dumb dumb dumb. The Discovery Channel should do a show on the impact of mining of the gold as compared to the benefit. I think that this adventure has changed their lives.
I do hope the Bears eats one of them so they go home and wise up. He gets to shut down all the plants? A bunch of incompetent Yahoos go out digging in the woods. How the hell are those guys still following him around??? I spent 54 years as a journeyman truck-and heavy-equipment mechanic, often working through the night by myself a long way away from any help. What's with them having to use the F word every time they open their mouth? And their leader, oh my god their leader. We're down to the wire out of money and have been supposedly running for months. He appears to have very little to no backbone.
