    Gold Rush: Alaska

    Anybody else watching the season 2 premiere tonight? I watched it last year and am really curious as to whether or not they find gold this year.
    I hope Dorsey is back!!

    I watched it last year and will prob watch again this season but not tonight with game 7.
    What is it about watching a bunch of idiots try to do something they know nothing about, reminds me of where I work. I predict they will find some gold this season. It is the best show on Friday night.

    haha, yeah I'll be flipping between them all.
    But dammit, there's just something about this show that keeps me coming back. The guys are so ignorant and hard headed, but I just keep thinking they're gonna strike it big. It's like watching a train wreck: you know its going to be ugly, but you just have to watch.

    I'm recording on my PC and watching the BYU-TCU game. Not being a baseball fan helps out.

    Yeah, I'm not a baseball fan until the 9th inning.
    Worked out perfect last night.

    That's a complete crock.
    1-How does not Todd not call Earl after Fred's call?
    2-How are they evicted without any notice?
    3-How does Todd leave without consulting a lawyer?

    Re: Gold Rush: Alaska

    How do you get so deep into something without all of the planning that needs to take place?!?! These guys are so frustrating with their lack of knowledge and planning.

    It does kind of suck that they don't get to see how much gold was down in that hole.

    I think Todd knew he was screwed and couldn't do anything about it when he realized he forgot to make a payment on the claim. I'm sure that forgotten payment voided the entire lease.

    Otherwise, I agree.

    as a landlord I had to serve a 3 day notice to pay then serve the tenant again just to get a court date. I guess the bottle line is Todd is a tool and less than honest with his crew. Discovery must be writing a big check for these guys to put up with this.

    I'd really like to know how much Discovery is paying these guys.
    I also wonder how much of it is scripted.
