    Default discovery channel show

    Discovery channel is doing a show like "the deadliest catch" about the iditarod. http://www.iditarod.com/flashmap/fre...1A.html?full=1 On one hand I would rather they not, because I kind of like the sport to be small and primarily about the dogs, not the mushers (no offense to all mushers) and I think that the focus of the show will be about the drama and excitement surrounding the mushers and the "race." On the other hand I am in Iowa attending seminary right now and will ablolutely not miss an episode. What are your thoughts?

    I'm really excited about it though I don't have the Discovery Channel so will have to wait till I can get it elsewhere. Since the Iditarod is the more commercialized of the two big races, I don't mind. I just hope they do a good job.

    Good point about that race being more commercialized. Sometimes Discovery channel posts complete episodes of shows online. I watched the Alaskan experiment that way. hopefuly they will do that with this one.

    Yes it would be nice if I could get it online but I really hope they put it on dvd. That way I can share it with my friends and family a bit easier lol.

    I'm sure it's going to be good but that's beside the point; I'd watch it (and record it) even if it was a "special" on mucking dog pens in Dillingham - if it's on or in Alaska, I'm watching it. I'm pretty sure Mike Rowe will be doing the narration and he does such a great job. I have one of the limited edition hats from last years race, with about 30 of the top finishers autographs; I'll have to wear that when I watch it, LOL.

    I'm looking forward to the show. I think that anything showing the beauty of alaska is worth watching.

    I recorded it and watched it live and it was great. Gov. Sarah made a cameo appearance but it was all about the mushers, the dogs, the volunteers and the incredible beauty of the great state of Alaska. Can't wait til next Tuesday night.

    I think that they said six shows. I hope they play the previous weeks show before the new one like they did with the deadliest catch, my 7 year old almost cried when she found out it was on too far past her bedtime. One hour earlier and I will let her stay up and watch it with dad.

    Watched it. It was good but next week's will be better, going through Rainy Pass. I can't believe how Jeff King is so full of himself. Well actually, I do believe it lol. Sorry if you are a Jeff fan.

    I think there will be 6 episodes.

    Great show. One question, does anyone know what happened to Joe Garney's food? Pissed me off to think someone did it on purpose. He had to drop because his food did not make it to the check point. Anyone heard the story as to what happened?

    Guess not. I would imagine it got lost in the shuffle. It's a major operation with thousands of volunteers making all the food drops and setting up the checkpoints.

    I know this is an older thread but
    did anyone buy the DVD set from the Discovery Ch.?
    I just ordered it.
    4 hr. 18 min. 2 DVD set.
    $19.99 + $4.00 shipping.

    I had the DISH company remove my dish last fall before this was aired, so I didn't get to see any of it.

    Thanks,
    Ken

    My best friend, "musher" recently on this list, bought it for me for Christmas. Well, it was my present "from the dogs" which was so sweet. Yes, it is good. Well worth the price.
