Governor Palin shares the following on Facebook:
Happy to see that the Dove Foundation gave "Sarah Palin's Alaska" a five out of five rating as uplifting entertainment for the whole family (follow the link to their review). That's what we were hoping for in making this series as our love letter to Alaska. We made a positive family-oriented outdoor adventure that showcases America's Last Frontier with its vast reserves of natural resources which can contribute to our nation's security and prosperity. Please tune in to TLC tonight at 9pm/8pm central to join my family as we show you Alaska!
The review by CEO Dick Rolfe states:
“Sarah Palin’s Alaska” is chock full of the stunning, majestic landscapes at Denali Park and Mount McKinley, the highest mountain peak in North America. Nature’s beauty can also present dangerous challenges like angry momma bears and 100 ft deep ice crevices that could swallow up a careless climber.
This rugged backdrop offers some insights as to how Sarah and Todd Palin acquired the skills to overcome some of their own personal adversities; from the birth of their special needs child, Trigg to the cruel jabs leveled at them by political opponents and media pundits.
Sarah is seen as a typical mother with all the challenges of a parent with children from ages 2 to 18. Her husband and help-mate, Todd is not shy or quiet as he is often portrayed. Calm and secure are more appropriate adjectives that describe him. His calming demeanor helps keep the family on task and on track.
The first episode shows Todd and Sarah taking their kids on a fishing trip where they meet up with a few brown bears, and tackling a glacier and rock face at the foot of Mt McKinley. “I wanted to be a rock star, not a rock climber.”
This series will give the public a true-to-life, unvarnished look at Alaska’s former Governor and her family. Was this up-close-and-personal view a good move politically?
We’ll see what the future brings.
We certainly will. In the meantime, be sure to check out episode one of "Sarah Palin's Alaska" tonight at 9:00 Eastern.
