    Gold Rush - new season

    Anyone catch it? It seems to me Parker is making a whole bunch of bad decisions, starting with wasting 25 ounces of gold on Todd's old Little Blue wash plant. Dakota Fred is out of his mind trying to get that high up. How's he supposed to get gear in there?

    Then of course there is Todd and his unique brand of fail, but so far he isn't looking half as inept as the other two.

    I think they make more money on the TV program then in the field digging. They know they have to make their own Drama to keep ratings up.
    Yep I have to watch it and record when not at home.

    I think its a good season. Anto Beets is a crazy cool dude i bet that little blue wash plant just needs love. And a good sluice. You are correct though. The gold is just for show. When you are on a prime time station with tens of millions of viewers you do not need to make money with the gold.

    You've got to be kidding. Tens of millions of viewers? This show is lucky to get 1.5 million and that does not translate into big money at all. In fact, it's thought that the BSG/GR people are being seriously lowballed because the casts of prior Original Productions shows made a good amount of money off the shows. These performers aren't making much.

    Prospecting/Mining and protecting our rights to do so.
    Well Parker is trying to get his operation up and running and is between a rock and a hard place in a lot of ways. Starting off with grand theft excavator wasn't the smartest thing to do. Todd could fry him if he wants to be a jerk about it. I've liked Parker since the first season. He's done a mans job running his Grandpas mine for the last couple of years and has always seemed like a good kid. His actions, though borne out of desperation, could be his downfall. Even worse is the fact that his little excavator "joy ride" was filmed.

    Todd rooked Parker on the wash plant for sure. No way was that thing worth 25 ounces!!!! Parker needs to learn the fine art of wheeling and dealing but that comes with time and experience I guess. I also seem to remember that bulldozer had some major problems last season. It would have made Parkers' life much easier if his dad had allowed him to borrow some of the equipment from the Big Nugget. They are not going to be mining there this season anyway as there's nothing left to mine.

    Remember they are all paid actors/prospectors. Discovery is making millions off of the advertisers and the drama is all part of the plan. I am sure everything done on the show is scripted. I stopped wasting my Friday watching the show when it airs. I watch it on my terms, DVR. The sixty minute show you get 15 minute of commercials, 15 minutes of past shows (filler reruns), 15 minutes of breakdowns, and if were lucky we see in the last 15 minutes some gold processing, digging, etc.

    I think everyone wants to see Parker get his gold. If Parker is for real there are not many 18 year olds walking around that has the experience that this young man has when it comes to repair, fixing, operating, etc. Only three others of this show have any class, Dave Turin, Tony Beets, and Freddy Dodge. Tony was approached to take a more active role in the show and turn Discovery down. Do you blame him? Jim Thruber, Chris Doumit, and Greg Remsburg most likely are good guys when working under Dave. Todd and Jack should go on vacation with the two idiots of Jungle Gold.

    I figured the tree huggers leaned on Discovery and its advertisers and got the show canned. I still will not watch the show when it airs but will from the DVR. I just can't waste a Friday night watching Todd and his Dad carry on like kids with no real direction on what they are doing. Luckily they have a few good guys on their team that does have a clue.

    they lost me.

    Any show that runs an Episode or 2 Then Breaks for month or 2 Gets canned from my Viewing
    By the time they come back they will probably do a whole show on reminding everyone what happened on the
    behind the scenes show

    Total waste of my Time.

    at least Ghost Mine is on

    and Big Bang theory should be back with a new season by October
