Are you looking for a new series to watch for 2015? Have you seen Ice Cold Gold yet? I had no idea this show was on until I received the Season One 2-DVD set to review, and now I am hooked. This television series, which airs on the Animal Planet introduce you to a group of men who risk their lives in hopes of striking it rich. I am only a few episodes in, since we lost power during the blizzard, but my husband and I can't wait until this weekend, as we hope to watch more of season one. We were hooked after the first few minutes of the first episodes. And, if you haven't seen this show, I know you will be, too!
More about Ice Cold Gold, Season One:
"Every summer, the curtain of ice covering Greenland is pulled back, revealing the potential for untold riches in the rock below. Enter eight ragtag prospectors, pooling their resources to touch the untouched in hopes of uncovering the gold and precious gems that lie beneath the surface. In the beginning spirits are high, but nature is a harsh opponent, throwing rockslides and avalanches into already risky business. Disappointing hardships and startling discoveries await at every turn, and the distance from home eventually takes its toll. Physically and mentally drained, will these men and the families they leave behind survive the risks, and responsibilities required to strike it rich? And in the end, will the men return with Ice Cold Gold? With a total run time of 264 minutes, this DVD has an SRP of $29.93. Street date: December 16, 2014."
