Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Alaska: The Last Frontier follows a family as they live and work on their homestead in South Central Alaska. It contains some rough language ("damn," "crap"; bleeped cursing), as well as images of animal hunting (rifles, knives, and so on visible). However, its strong themes about family, respecting nature, and hard work give this reality show some depth.
Is It Any Good?
Like most Alaskan-themed reality series, The Last Frontier shows the rugged lifestyle that this three-generation family has chosen to live and reveals many of the daily challenges it faces while living it. What sets this show apart, however, is the fact that Atz's eldest daughter just happens to be Jewel, the international pop star.
If you watch in hopes of spotting the singer on the show, you'll be disappointed. But folks who like this sort of reality experience will enjoy watching how the extended family carries out their day-to-day activities without a lot of modern conveniences. Its focus on family also makes it a decent option for whole-family viewing.
Did we miss something on diversity?
