Alaskan Women highlights some of the interesting challenges these women face when trying to find partners and build long-lasting relationships in the remote Kodiak region, like not having a place to buy clothes, shoes, or other items, being unable to dress up due to the harsh weather, and not having any place to go out on a date. The fact that many of the men in the region are away for up to 10 months out of the year working fishing boats and other jobs is also an issue.

The show's appeal comes from the women's attempts to make the most of their time in the trendy Miami community. However, they often appear to justify their need for a man by reinforcing stereotypes about the residents of both Kodiak and Miami Beach. Some folks will find their efforts to be swept off their feet entertaining, but their overall antics seem a bit desperate.
