For months now,we've been hearing about Sarah Palin's upcoming foray into reality TV. At first, this didn't sound like a great idea. Let's be honest: The words "reality TV" can conjure an image of immature loudmouths making bad decisions (like, say, hooking up in hot tubs). And even a tame one, like TLC's Jon & Kate Plus 8, ultimately led its stars down a path of marital destruction. Why would this former governor and vice presidential candidate want cameras following her family and friends around?
The answer is that Sarah Palin's Alaska (TLC, Sunday, Nov.14, 9 p.m. ET) turns out to be more of a travelogue than a laundry-airing vanity project. Palin and various family members embark on legitimate adventures amidst captivating scenery and fascinating wildlife. Alaska itself is so magnificent, and the filming is so well done, that even Palin haters will feel a sense of awe. Many find her annoying when she brags about her state, but no one can dispute that her state is, indeed, breathtakingly beautiful, even magnanimous.
