i did. I really enjoyed the scenery!. but sarah barracuda has a very annoying demeanor!. hearing her yap for a full hour with her bratty kids tested my limits. there was a scene where the kids were teasing wild bear cubs, [with the momma bear near by!] and I wont say what I wished would have happened.

I didn't watch the show but it sure would have made good television to see everyone run off shrieking with mama bear hot on their heels. What about a 'mama grizzley' doesn't the woman really understand?!

After hearing her on the commercials, i've grown to appreciate the sound of fingernails on a chalk board.

Well, from the clips I've seen, Sarah and Todd actually know how to deal with the bears and the other wildlife in Alaska.They didn't freak, they didn't overreact, and they handled it.

Will I watch it? Yeah, why not. The only thing missing is some asswipe stomping through the forest trying to get them to stop fishing and hunting. That's when you cue the bears.

I'm guessing the show would be more entertaining than watching Pelosi sitting in the Botox chair, although Chuck Rangel's performance today at the beginning of his hearing was actually very, although pathetically, entertaining. I'll give you that.

Did you see the performance by Rangel today, after knowing for two years that this trial was coming?? Now there's some reality TV. It was brilliant!!

I hung in for about ten minutes and that's all I could take of Palin's horse and pony show. Always love scenery of Alaska but I would rather get it without Palin's annoying voice throwing out canned lines. It was like John and Kate Plus Eight Alaska style!

No problem. No, let's go w/ something that's underused, you're welcome.

Now, to try to find a way to work in "land-o-goshen."

My paternal grandmother, an Iowa farmer's wife, used "land-o-goshen" nearly every time she spoke, but that trait was not passed down to me.

LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Sarah Palin's new TV show drew a bumper audience of almost five million people in its debut Sunday night, marking the largest viewership ever for a program launch on cable channel TLC, according to figures released on Monday.

"Sarah Palin's Alaska" -- an eight-episode series that is part travel show and part an inside look at the family life of the controversial Tea Party favorite -- was watched by 4.96 million people, most of them over 35 years-old, Nielsen data showed.

Sunday's episode showed the 2008 Republican vice presidential contender hiking glaciers, baking cakes with some of her five children, and encountering wild bears on a family fishing trip in her home state.

Palin, 46, is considered a prospective 2012 presidential candidate, and the TV show is seen in some quarters as an extended political promotion of her values and image.

"The first hour of the show, at least, played out as a shrewd, beautifully produced political ad intended to link the one-time vice presidential candidate in the audience's minds with an image that is home-grown, rugged and strong," People.com writer Tom Gliatto said on Monday.




I have my problems with Sarah, as I have stated before. I actually don't think she is as dumb as she portrays herself. I'd love to see an argument between her and Todd, as in her being herself instead of the high pitched voice catering to the lowest denominator. But at the same time, the responses she gets out of liberals is absolute entertainment. The title of the show should be - "Sarah Palin' Alaska - Bringing the Doofus Out Of Modern Day Liberalism."

Here is a good example from today. This was no doubt written by one of the so-called "Nature Lovers" that I talk about often;

Top 10 moments of 'Sarah Palin's Alaska' premiere -- she's as outdoorsy as Roosevelt (Franklin)

By Alexandra Petri

If real life were like this, to paraphrase a member of the Palin clan, I would be outside 24/7 eating popcorn on a chair.

But instead, I'm inside watching "Sarah Palin's Alaska" on TLC. In escalating order, here are the top moments of last night's episode. I would say "I watch so you don't have to," but, actually, I urge you to watch. It's better than Dancing With the Stars!

Sarah, the Bear Whisperer. One of my pet peeves and one of the reasons I worry about our longevity as a species is people who sit there ascribing rich inner lives to animals such as dogs and parakeets. "Look at the dog," they say. "He's thinking about how happy he'll be to ride in the truck. Yes sir. He's saying, 'Oh boy, is that truck for me?'" or "Look at Wally the Cockatoo. I know what Wally's thinking about -- this evening's episode of Criminal Minds! Ain't that so, Wally?" Sarah Palin does this, it turns out, but for bears. Here's what she claims the one she ran into while fishing with her family was thinking: "Nobody's going to mess with my cubs. Nobody's going to mess with the future of the species." Here's what it was actually thinking: "SALMON SALMON. OTHER BEAR. BAD. OTHER BEAR MUST BE STOPPED. GROWL. WHO IS THAT HAIRLESS BEAR IN BOAT? HAIRLESS BEAR IN BOAT MUST BE STOPPED. CAMERA? CAMERAS BAD. HAVE AN EXCLUSIVE CONTRACT WITH DISCOVERY."

Piper Palin. I love everything Piper has to say for herself. Piper, on the same fishing trip: "I'm never going to catch a fish in my life."

The awkward but omnipresent subtext of Palin and Todd's relationship, Todd catches a fish and Palin notes: "Todd feels like he's bringing home the bacon, that's the way it should be."

Palinterior Design. There is an actual bear rug in the Palin livingroom, with head and everything. There is also the decapitated head of what looks to be an elk, with full antlers, mounted on the upstairs wall. It looks vaguely contrite. "This is what happened to the last male who was allowed upstairs," it seemed to say, as the camera cuts back and forth between it and Andy, a male friend of Willow Palin. "Leave while you still can." On the wall beside it is a blank space that has been left open for Levi Johnston's head, in case he ever shows back up in those there parts.


The elaborate and beautiful lexicon of Palinisms These are all PG-rated and eloquently encompass grief, anxiety, and general discomfort, including, "We are somewhere that URRRRRRH people dream about coming to" or "Oh Gossssssh" or "Oh God help me. Here I go. Here I go Brian. I'm scared. Oh. Okay. That's. That's scarier than I thought." or "I hate hikes. All of a sudden. Hey."


Crevasses. After watching Palin rock-climb, my new life goal is to sneak up behind her someday dressed as a crevasse. They terrify her! I don't know the sounds crevasses make, but I'll just yell, "Boo! I'm a crevasse." She finds these mortifying because they are "dark and never-ending."


Mama? Grizzly? Menaced by a bear while fishing, Palin responds by grabbing Piper as a human shield. Sure, call it "protective maternal instinct" if you like, but it looked to me as though she were grabbing Piper for bartering purposes in case the bear decided it wanted a snack. "To get to me, you will have to go through my cub!" Palin seemed to be saying. "I mean, wait."


The Book-Writer Next Door. The Palins put quite a bit of effort into avoiding the person across the way who has rented a house so that he can observe their life and write a book about them. I glimpse a terrible irony in this. He has moved all the way to Wasilla, Alaska, because he actively wants to see more of the Palins, and they are carefully shielding their activities from him, whereas I have moved to Washington, a place I hear is anathema to Sarah, so that I can avoid her as much as possible, and she insists on inflicting herself upon me every night this week.


No Boys Upstairs! This policy produces a hilarious exchange when Willow Palin's friend, Andy, shows up. Palin: "This gate -- it's not just for Trig. It's for -- noooo boys go upstairs." Andy awkwardly sidles back to the couch and sits down, staring up at the forbidding elk head. Palin: "She'll be downstairs in a minute. You can text her up there." ("That should do it!" I picture her thinking. "Kids love texting!") At this point, Sarah looks away. In what is perhaps the greatest decision ever made in the history of reality television, the boy decides to amble upstairs, anyway. Palin notices and becomes nervous. You never know what can happen in thirty to sixty seconds! She telephones Willow. You can hear Willow saying something along the lines of "seriously?" Andy skitters back downstairs. He reseats himself on the couch looking up at the forbidding elk head. And, scene.


Sarah Gets Stuck on a Mountain for 45 Minutes. 45 Full Minutes. Sarah climbs, gets stuck, sits there on the rock shouting "What about my legs? Where do I put 'em?" "Well, then my legs get stuck underneath this overhang!" There is a brief pause. Then we see the caption "45 minutes later." Sarah has not moved. She is still in the same position. Todd, meanwhile, appears to be enjoying this immensely.

The guide also seems to be enjoying this immensely. "That's what all those gymnastics are good for!" he shouts. "I was not a cheerleader or a gymnast," Sarah Palin shoots back. If she ever becomes President Palin, I can imagine a similar moment playing out in a time of foreign policy crisis. "That's what all that foreign policy experience is good for!" one of her aides will say. "I do not have any foreign policy experience!" Palin will shoot back. Then forty-five minutes will pass without any apparent movement.
I sympathize, of course. I am always the person who winds up stuck in the middle of the rock climb. Sometimes this happens to me just climbing stairs to people's walk-up apartments. "I'll just sit here!" I say. "You go on! Take my axe with you!" I have all the upper-body strength of Woodrow Wilson. This is why I never go anywhere or do anything. For me, the outdoors is what you walk through to get from the car to the Starbucks. I think Palin and I are more alike than different in this respect. So watching her cling helplessly to the side of a mountain expressing remorse for her hubris in the face of a camera crew is an especially hilarious spectacle.


Before watching this, I would have likened Palin, the outdoorsy, folksy, big-stick-totin' country gal, to Teddy Roosevelt. But after watching her climb, I'd say she's more like Franklin.

"How do we get down?" she asks at the end. I hope the entire second episode is just her attempting to get down! If so, it will be riveting television!

Regardless, I can't wait. As Sarah says, " I don't think that I have been that scared or that challenged in a long time."

Did I watch this show? No way in hail!!!
I was afraid she might be shooting wolves from a plane.
Teasing wild bear cubs is shameful. But what else should I expect from that family.
I can't wait til she runs for president!

Be careful of what you wish for. The last Presidential election has more than proven to me just how many woefully ignorant people find their way to the polling stations.
