Alaskan Reality Shows (Bush People etc.)

How many Alaskan based reality shows are on television?

From Pallan, to people to mining for gold, or crab fishing there seems to be a glut of shows devoted to portraying some "reality" of life in Alaska.

Personally I've been watching Alaskan Bush People. It's the one about the family who live mostly off the grid. I'm fascinated by that family despite the fact that some things are clearly played up for TV. One of the sons fishes by grabbing them out of the water like a bear and punching them in the face, that isn't one of the things played up for TV. He catches a lot that way too.

Do you watch Alaskan Bush People or any of the other ones?
How many of these types of shows are there?
Discuss.

Yeah, it's an odd trend. But wannabe nature nuts love that shit (both conservative and liberal).
