Weds, 3/22: The Last Alaskans (Discovery)
This docu-series follows the daily rituals of four families who have chosen to live in the intense seclusion of Alaska. Here familiar modern luxuries are replaced by old-world expedition equipment like prop planes, canoes, and dog sleds. Frequent interactions are had with the state’s diverse and dangerous wildlife, as the families prepare for the difficult winter season. Beautifully filmed, the director utilizes flowing aerial shots produced with drones and honest interviews with this group of nonconformists who have decided to live off the grid.
