Alaskan Bush People is a reality TV show that premiered on the Discovery Channel in 2014. The show follows the lives of the Brown family as they live off the grid in the wilderness of Alaska. The family consists of parents Billy and Ami Brown and their seven children, Matt, Bam Bam, Bear, Gabe, Noah, Snowbird, and Rain.

The show takes place in different locations throughout Alaska, as the family moves from place to place depending on the season and the resources available. They live in remote areas without access to modern conveniences like electricity, running water, and the internet. The family relies on their survival skills and the natural resources around them to provide food, shelter, and other necessities.

The Brown family is known for their unorthodox lifestyle, which includes their unique way of speaking and dressing. They identify themselves as "wolfpack" and live by a code of self-reliance and respect for nature. They are often seen wearing animal furs and sporting long hair and beards.

The show primarily focuses on the lives of the five Brown sons, with particular emphasis on Bam Bam, Gabe, and Bear. Bam Bam is the second-oldest son and is known for his strength and resourcefulness. He is often seen using his carpentry skills to build structures and tools for the family. Gabe is the fourth-oldest son and is known for his athleticism and creativity. He is often seen hunting and fishing, and he also enjoys writing and drawing. Bear is the youngest of the five brothers and is known for his sense of humor and adventurous spirit. He is often seen exploring new areas and taking risks.

The show is filmed in a documentary-style format and often features interviews with the family members. The camera crew follows the Brown family as they work, play, and interact with each other. The show has been criticized by some viewers for its lack of authenticity and its dramatization of the family's lifestyle. However, fans of the show appreciate the Brown family's dedication to living off the land and their unique approach to life.

Alaskan Bush People has been on the air for several seasons and has undergone some significant changes over the years. In 2017, it was revealed that the Brown family had been living in hotels during the filming of the show, rather than in the wilderness as depicted on the show. This revelation led to a lawsuit being filed against Discovery Channel, which was settled out of court.

Despite the controversy surrounding the show, Alaskan Bush People remains a popular program on the Discovery Channel. The show appeals to viewers who enjoy watching people live off the grid and who are interested in survival skills and wilderness living. The Brown family's unique way of life and their quirky personalities make for an entertaining and engaging viewing experience.

Alaskan Bush People is a series that is currently running and has 14 seasons (148 episodes). The series first aired on May 6, 2014.
