Critics Of "Klondike - Season 1"
January 22, 2014 It takes some time to get used to writer Paul Scheuring's period-specific dialogue, but once you stop chuckling and just go with it, you'll be fine. It only adds to the authenticity of the production.Read in Source
New York Times
January 27, 2014 That everyone is concerned with one particular killing when murder appears to be common doesn't make much sense, and the dialogue sometimes sounds too 21st century, but the exploration of what greed and deprivation do to people holds your attention.Read in Source
January 24, 2014 Klondike delivers its dramatic bounty more effectively and compactly, capitalizing on some of Discovery's favorite obsessions: dangerous vocations, gold prospecting and harsh Alaska-adjacent terrain, in a fictionalized account of the 1897 gold rush.Read in Source
January 24, 2014 The miniseries illuminates the many ways that writers' imagination can fail them.Read in Source
January 22, 2014 It comes across almost like a musical without any songs, and before long, you're swept up in its crisp visuals and steady pace.Read in Source
Wall Street Journal
January 22, 2014 Yet in a miniseries full of wonders-among them all those lead actors from the U.K. or the former British Empire-Discovery has now staked its own claim.Read in Source
January 22, 2014 It helps that so much of Klondike was shot on location and without CGI. That makes the series feel especially real and lived, which is key in making a project like this one work.Read in Source
January 22, 2014 While Klondike does play a bit like "Deadwood Lite" at times, it's best to avoid comparisons with the late great HBO drama and take the miniseries on its own terms as sturdy epic storytelling populated by a memorable collection of characters.Read in Source
January 22, 2014 Discovery Channel overall gets a passing grade for mounting a drama that effectively captures its period visually if not always verbally.Read in Source
January 22, 2014 There's violence - it was a violent time - but it isn't excessive or gratuitous, which is a welcome relief. Dig in.Read in Source
January 27, 2014 Klondike was wrapped in a picturesque grandeur, but inside there wasn't a nugget of gold to be found, just a few sparkly platitudes and the message that hope is far too simplistic of a notion to hang an entire miniseries on.Read in Source
January 22, 2014 If you're just asking for an entertaining adventure story with impressive visuals and a solid cast, it does the job, and represents a promising first foray into scripted drama for Discovery.Read in Source
