Lastly, for the Reality TV Alaska Fans.  Over the years there
has been several TV shows about living in Alaska.  
Most were simply nonsense and only loosely based on facts.
 
Shows like "Alaska, The Last Frontier" are at least
partially scripted.  The show perports they are living a
subsitance lifestyle but that is by choice not need, they are quite wealthy.
Oh and you can drive from Homer to their property.

"Deadliest Catch", "Bering Sea Gold", "Life Below Zero",
"Yukon Men" and "Gold Rush" are fairly accurate but
have portions that are scripted.
 
"Alaskan Bush People" is totally scripted.  They may have
started out as "poor" but today as a result of what they
earn filming the show, they are no longer.  That and the
continued legal issues surrounding the family has
their sponsors seriously thinking about dropping the show.
Most Alaskan's find the show insulting and outright stupid.
Billy Brown and his son are convicted felons by the way.
This group defines the term "white trash".

Any TV show that suggests we are all consumed by fear of BigFoot
or some other mythical monster is total bull.  
Only monsters in Alaska are the same kind of people you have
everywhere else, crazy is crazy.

The only Alaskan Reality Show that is not scripted was the
Alaska State Troopers.  This show is now longer being filmed.
Shame as it was the one show that was 100% based on fact.
