Returning to the mountain for the second season we go deeper into the soul of the Everest experience. The climbers, a group of misfits and strangers, face up to the reality of risking their lives as they experience fear, hardship, exhaustion, disappointments, and triumph. We go deeper into the science of survival, deeper into the extreme conditions, and deeper into why Everest is the ultimate physical challenge. It's Everest as you've never seen it before.

the first season was just great- i am so glad to see the show back again. very suspensful.
Loved the first season. So glad to see it back. GREAT SHOW
A real sleeper
I am not generally a fan of this particluar genre. Shows that depict these activities tend to be a bit slow and edited to give it an overbearing "vanilla" flavor. Not so with Everest, Season 2. I have been amazed at the raw footage as well as the candor between the participants. Camera work is outstanding, and unlike a lot of other similar shows, the raw, exposing nature of Everest S2 makes you want to develop ties to certain characters in that strange vicarious way. The biker who weighs in at 270 pounds at 6'4", the smaller and more agile sherpas, the expedition leader showing immense concern for his climbers, making decisions that are'nt always popular. Adding to the realism are the incredibly sad and haunting scenes of climbers who have died merely feet from the ascent/descent trails, their bodies still there as if literally frozen in time, a grim reminder of everything that could go terribly wrong. I have become a huge fan of Everest, S2, and i can only whole heartedly recommend this to anyone who enjoys raw, emotional, and uncut (except the annoying beep overs of swear words, when are they going to just let those be!!!) entertainment...
