The “Alaskan Bush People” returns after a mid-season hiatus to Discovery Channel tonight, May 29, at 9 p.m. ET. People are just going bonkers about this show, possibly more than any show in a long time. The only thing that I can think of that compares is “Duck Dynasty,” but this is different. Probably about 1/3 of the fans can’t stand the Brown family or the show, but they will be tuned it for sure. There is an aura of excitement; it’s like the Super Bowl with snacks and everything!
Across social media there is so much talk about the fake quality of the show. Some folks are angry, and some folks are angry at the folks who are angry. Facebook has many groups that are totally about the show, and the members take it very seriously whatever side they are on. There is even some bickering going on between groups!
If you are not sure what is going on with this show, here is a whole list of articles published about the show, many of which I have written. http://www.examiner.com/topic/alaskan-bush-people
You can catch up and see what all the fuss is about. Meanwhile, I have got to go get popcorn for tonight!
