They are some the toughest, most extreme survivalists that Alaska has to offer. Going head to head, eight men of a rare breed are about to take the ultimate test of survival in Arctic conditions that only National Geographic could inspire. Dropped in the middle of the Alaskan wilderness by bush plane, with only their raw, mountain-man ingenuity, they’ll navigate through treacherous glaciated river valleys, barren ridgelines, and high mountain peaks, battling hunger, hostile predators, and perilous weather conditions along the way. Like the original National Geographic explorers, for those who succeed there is no grand prize, just the well-fought pride of having conquered the grueling challenges that Mother Nature can throw at them. It's an epic competition series where the only prize is survival.
|1||HDClosed CaptioningVideoArctic Hell||The men pick their route: some take the higher land, some follow the river. Expert climber Willi Prittie leads Brent Sass and Tyler Johnson into the mountains. The bearing they're traveling reaches elevations over 4,000 feet. Veteran mountain man Marty Raney is leading his son Matt and survival expert Austin Manelick through the river valley. Brothers Dallas and Tyrell Seavey navigate along the ridgeline, crossing land with little cover. These born racers are resolute to be the first to arrive.||42:37||$2.99||View in iTunes|

Mountain man Marty Raney is taking charge, building a colossal raft weighing nearly 2 tons which he hopes will be sturdy enough in the rapids. After spending five hours on construction, the five-man crew get on their way, but hunger starts to take its toll. Dallas Seavey, his brother Tyrell and survival expert Austin Manelick are meticulously engineering a smaller raft that's speedy and maneuverable to tackle the turbulent Yukon.||43:24||$2.99||View in iTunes|

The men split into three groups and approach a 300-foot cliff, descend a ravine and traverse eight miles of the Triumvirate Glacier. Marty Raney, his son Matt and Brent Sass take a low route and are the first to cross. Willi Prittie and the Seavey brothers cross far from the icebergs, across 33-degree water. Austin and Tyler bypass the glacier, traveling along the ridgeline. They arrive last and Austin's showing signs of hypothermia.||43:25||$2.99||View in iTunes|

So Disappointing - Just another Discovery Channel fight against the clock
Dear National Geographic, please do not turn into Discovery Channel with fake timelines and false exploitations of danger. I had to shut this off after 15 minutes because I couldn't take it any longer.
Remember who your audience is. You can't trick us. We know if they don't make it in 72 hours that you will not leave them there to die; that would be murder.
Please show some respect for your viewers. I appreciate real and authentic content, delivered by industry experts and professionals. Despite what your Execs say, we don't want drama. Actually, we just don't want drama between idiots; two experts who both believe there way right based the facts, that kind of drama is ok.
National Geographic, you are our last hope. Keep it real, Keep true. Keep the politics out. Believe it or not your audience is conservatives, The day you let liberals over run National Geographic with agendas, will be the day we all turn the channel.
Alaskan likes it
I am enjoying the series. I have lived in Alaska for 31 years and try to get out into the wild and backpack or fly in to a river to fish. I agree that the 72 hour timeline or else is rather ridiculous...I enjoy the rest of the show. I would love a final episode showing all the crew and cameramen (yes I'm being sexist...there could be a camerawomen, but in this scenario I doubt it) stuggling to get through these challenges. Also, the crews all ate quite well and had dry tents from what I've heard and the 8 had to help them along the way as well. Please consider showing an episode with the crew filming it all.
Great scenery and entertaining show
I really enjoy the challenges and seeing the different personalities at work in tackling the various legs of the journey. Most memorable characters - Willie, the two brothers, and Austin who proves you can still survive old-school with a bow and arrow. Very entertaining show and seems less 'produced' and 'scripted' than other shows in this genre.
