  1. Great! I wondered how her career had ended up in the crapper so I had to look it up. Sad. Super glad to see her back!! ❤️ I absolutely loved Million Dollar Baby and Boys Don’t Cry!

    1. What did you find? I missed the first few minutes of the pilot so I’d also like to know how she ended up in Alaska…

  2. My wife and I watched the premier showing of Alaska Daily and are already hooked. Intriguing story line and what appears to be a curious number of characters with a range of interesting traits. Glad to see that we have a fresh alternative to cop shows/law&order types.
