A Must See TV Event: KLONDIKE on The Discovery Channel

<p>In "Klondike," Richard Madden from "Game of Thrones" goes prospecting.</p>

Klondike

Discovery’s first scripted mini-series, announced last year, is based on Charlotte Gray’s book Gold Diggers: Striking It Rich in the Klondike. Her tale brings to life the story of six strangers and their collective fight for survival and wealth in a small frontier town in the remote Klondike.

Klondike follows the lives of two childhood best friends, Bill and Epstein, in the late 1890s as they flock to the gold rush capital in the untamed Yukon Territory. This man-versus-nature tale places our heroes in a land full of undiscovered wealth, but ravaged by harsh conditions, unpredictable weather and desperate, dangerous characters including greedy businessmen, seductive courtesans and native tribes witnessing the destruction of their people and land by opportunistic entrepreneurs.

Catch the action Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday 9:00pm - 11:00pm on the Discovery Channel.

Ariel Sharon, died Saturday, January 11, 2014


Ariel Sharon former prime minister of Israel died today, Saturday, January 11, 2014.  Sharon was one of Israel’s most iconic and controversial figures. As one of Israel’s most famous generals, he was known for bold tactics and an occasional refusal to obey orders. As a politician, he became known as “The Bulldozer,” a man contemptuous of his critics while also capable of getting things done.


Our hearts go out to his family and the country of Israel. Shalom.
