Last week the Discovery Channel held a special event in Times Square to promote their new miniseries "Klondike." I enjoyed it all, especially the saloon. (Though if I were the town newspaper's editor my first headline would be, "Like All TV Gold Rush Towns, We Have Far Too Many Hookers.")

They were pushing a souvenir kit so I actually panned for gold, and just like in real life I found more than my share of flakes. Anyway, the show looks pretty great, executive produced by Ridley Scott. As for gold rush life, I'm not so sure. A lot of people romanticize it but even judging from the souvenir kit I think it'd be pretty vial.
