Behind the Scenes of Life Below Zero: Out Of Control

Last night on Life Below Zero, winter preparations were in full swing as the changing seasons bring the tough transition from fall to winter. In Eagle, Andy set off to find elusive moose, as he and Kate need to replenish their red meat supply for the coming winter. In Kavik, Sue sealed up camp to head to Fairbanks for a foot procedure. Meanwhile, the Hailstones teach their daughters to ice fish while Tiktaalik—a local word for burbot—is in season. And in Chandalar, Glenn tends to some much-needed cabin repairs before the harsh winter hits.

With so much activity to cover, keeping up with the arctic inhabitants is no small feat. On the latest installment of Life Below Zero: Behind the Scenes, the camera team ventures out on a frozen lake to film ice fishing in Chandalar. Then, a snowmobile pulling a cameraman runs into trouble while trying to keep up with Andy and his dog team.

Watch now and check back next week for an all-new webisode:

    All of the people on Life Below Zero are eating a “perfect” diet. Fresh meat, home grown vegetables, few sweets. I am curious as to what their blood work looks like. Cholesterol levels, triglycerides, blood sugar, etc. Has that ever been checked?

    How did Glen decide to put an aluminum ladder so high on his needs list and how did he get it to his cabin?

    I agree with Paul! “No Glen,” as he has kids but as far as I can tell he doesn’t seem to support them in any way. Maybe he really does and we as an audience don’t see that side but he just seems self centered.

    This is by far my favorite show but Sue wears me out. So dramatic and so proud of herself. Everything is I, I, I. And I fast forward through the Sue portions. Lol
