Its two different shows, Flying Wild Alaska starts tonight on Discovery. Alaska Wing Men comes on NatGeo, which I dont get . I already have Flying Wild set to DVR, looks like it could be interesting. The old lady calling ice road truckers p*@&#^s is classic .

I have watched GRA just to watch these guys screw up. Would be extremely funny if they werent putting peoples lives at risk. And I wouldnt be surprised if Discovery isnt covering some or all of their cost. Also bet the old guy across the creek helps out toward the end and they find a decent little claim. Just in time for season 2...

Todd Hoffman stands around with his fingers up his hiney saying, "we got to run dirt"

Jack Hoffman's cure for everything is the excavator

Dorsey is a complete Cluster F*ck

James Harness, even on drugs, is saving these guys ass

Greg Remsburg is working on a house? He is the second welder fabricator, why isn't he taking half of the work load from James Harness?

Jim Thurber, i don't klnow what he does

Mike Halestead, who is he

But in the end the Discovery Channel won't let these guys go broke

better than american chopper though

I had only watched one episode until last night, when I watched 2.
I really can not get over how f'ed up these guys are. The "engineer" is sick and hurt and yet he's doing all the work, while the rest stand around and do squat. I see less drama and higher IQ's on Jersey Shore.
I'll bet I could take any five guys off RR and we'd do a better job.
I knew the INSTANT that they tapped into that creek that they were in trouble with the law. Any moron with one shred of common sense would know you can't do that legally, or at least without the proper permits.
How do you wait until you're down to you last container of diesel, with 1 hour until the gas station closes, to run into town to find fuel???
Why would you let your kids and your whiny wives come to camp???
These guys are so dysfunctional, that they make the show a must see, which I guess is what it's all about.
The Air Alaska show was pretty good IMO, but it's still a little early to tell. Not sure how much material is there to make a show. How many times can they get bad Jet A fuel??? On the upside, I would mind getting stuck in an igloo with the daughter!! Spunky....

Jack Hoffmans naisley voice drives me insane....These idiots should have just filed for bankruptcy and found another job or moved out of the state. These guys are like watching the 3 stooges with there family members LOL

However I did like the Alaskian Bush pilot show so far.

the one that kills me is the doofus that cut the top off the pipe.
That's like first grade math/engineering that you don't cut that pipe.
Then he goes fishing and leaves his wife behind at the camp. She was all excited about the prospect that hey might end up with a family vehicle. Excuse me. You drag your wife and kid to the wilderness and you don't even have a car??? The complains that he is being "disrespected". Well duh. You should be fired.

I love the gold show. It's so funny. It makes me laugh when I see the operation, its a total disaster. Meanwhile there's a guy logging and building a friggin cabin while no one is doing anything except for the guy with the broken back!

The old man is great! Everything that gets done is with his backhoe for better or worse. I bet if someone had an infected tooth he would pull it out with the backhoe.

I understand why they are all unemployed, they are basically useless workers except for a couple of them.

Lived in Louisiana for a few years, so Shelby is great. Used to run into people like him all the time. And it wasnt road kill squirrel, thats what he was shooting at. Have to give it to a guy that can pop a squirrel with a pistol from a moving tractor...

Watched the premiere and Flying Wild is gonna be a good one. Dude is a hell of a bush pilot, his wife is hilarious, and yeah the daughter is a cutie for sure. And John Ponts, I remember watching him while I was growing up skateboarding. Would have never expected to see someone like him flying in Alaska.

so they got all these buckets that have to be processed to get gold dust? where are the gold nuggets?

they buy this vibrating table and put that insecure bearded putz in charge of it because he is the only one that can read.

go on youtube and see some of those tables on how they work!

2 seconds later jackoff hoffman is having the cripple redesign the table.

but in the end of that episode the other hoffman says something about "we were doing it wrong"

All the while the rest of them sit around with their thumb up their ass staring at the buckets that need panning. Their supposedly broke and wait until the last minute to pan, then they come up short and start balling and fighting.

They are never going to strike it rich with that old b@std in charge. I love his little speech about how he didnt care how the table was supposed to work, they were going to do it his way. So after finding pretty good size nuggets just floating around they end up with what 2,5 ounces? That guy is getting alzheimers or something.

i don't know why they can't stir those buckets, and syphon off the mud as the gold falls to the bottom.

the hoffman's new name is the "GOLD DUST TWINS"
