In my review of last Friday's episode, I was pretty up-front when it came to Todd and Jack Hoffman's decision to leave Guyana to spend time with their family. I have no regrets about it. I still can't believe they would bail on the team this early in the season. Everyone there is missing their family. They haven't just up and decided to take off, have they?

The new season of Gold Rush is finally upon us. Trying to figure out what season we're in is difficult because it seems like whenever Gold Rush takes a week or two off, Discovery Channel's marketing department comes back with promotional videos advertising a "new season of Gold Rush". We could be on season twenty by their count. It's difficult to say where we really are. Therefore I'm not going to put any season or episode numbers in ... Read More
