1) Ice Road Truckers (Discovery)
2) Tougher in Alaska (History)
3) The Alaska Experiment (Discovery)
4) Deadliest Catch (Discovery)
5) Ax Men (History)

I know Mike Rowe has been there for Dirty Jobs, and I'm sure Bear Grylls and Les Stroud have too...

Apparently Alaska is the most extreme state now!

Alaska is "different" than any other place I've lived...I would love to be stationed there again!

ETA: Oh, I went there from OH too...

Ice Road Truckers is in Canada, I believe. But I agree. I wish History would actually play something of historical value.

Ax Men is in Oregon

Axmen is not in Alaska, it's in the Pacific Northwest.

Alaska and the damn aliens too.

Ice Road Truckers is Canada, and Ax Men is Pacific NW. I think Ax Men is somewhat interesting, but I don't think it belongs on the History Channel. I mean, there is soooo much that they've never covered in detail. The last few years it's either been Hitler or reality type BS. They seriously need to branch out, but I guess that probably wouldn't sell to "The Masses". Thus, everything needs to be dumbed down to make money off of advertisement...

Everything in Alaska is tougher and bigger. Hunting is way better than Montana. I grew up there and still get back every so often. About time Alaska had some coverage.

My first visit to Alaska I thought I'd "pack" and carried a 1911. Once I got a grip on being at the bottom of the food chain I felt truly small

The RAGING BULL will be my gun of choice when I go back!!!

I have no problem with Alaska, but I'm sick of seeing this stupid fucking shit on the History Channel. You wanna guess what the History Channel should be about? Fucking HISTORY! Not a Gotdamn lumberjack reality show, and not about fucking fishermen who can't get along with each other. I want fucking HISTORY! They got rid of the fucking Shootout! series for this fucking shit? If I wanted to see a reality show, I'd flip to MTV or one of the other channels with there's fucking chicks in bikinis shaking their shit for some stupid mutherfucker wearing a Goddamn huge-ass clock. I wanna see stories about people fucking dying and what those dead fuckers built. Mayeb 50 years ago, maybe 2000 years ago, but it's muther-humping history. That's what the fucking History Channel is supposed to be. Not some stupidass boneheaded knobslobber driving a fucking truck on the ice!

This whole "scheme" by the Discovery Channel is a heads up for those of us who really don't like the direction the lower 48 are going, look at all these shows as a free vacation from this mess. Think of how bad it "could-will" be here, ...then multiply. Alaska Rules! Shh... don't tell anyone.

Solid 9/10 right there.

My apologies for the geography confusion! I thought they were all in Alaska.

I also learned (thanks to my roommate) that 4/20 was kickoff of Alaska Week on Discovery, which makes sense because they must have been high to put all their eggs in this Alaska basket.

I will be happy when the history channel goes back to actual history topics and the Discovery channel goes back to discovering stuff. I am tired of these redneck waste of brain cell shows on these channels. There is nothing stimulating about watching someone drive a truck, cut down a tree, or pull a crab pot.

yeh ... +1000 on both of you!! Here we've been livin just fine for all these years ...now all of damn sudden America just figured out we really AREN'T off the coast of Mexico! Now All of sudden we are interesting ..not just a frozen wasteland. May the world NEVER come to Alaska ... especially the Kalifornians, the NY's and anyone form Mass.! Hell we'd rather have the Canadians!

The worst part is ... All those people in the lower 48 watch the TV shows on Ak and think they KNOW something about Alaska.


Hey Kodiak...you working this weekend? Range??? Want to do Salonie?

Or worse yet you get people who take Alaska cruises and think they're experts on the place because they took a 'cruise', yet only went ashore just once or twice and only when there was maybe shopping to be done.

ANWR, not ANWAR
