Yet another adaptation

"White Fang the series is yet another retelling of Jack London's famous book of the same name. Whereas the book tells about White Fang in the roll of a sled dog living in the Klondike gold rush years, this series moves the story to current times in the Rocky mountains and adds the inevitable 'boy and his loyal dog' twist to the concept. About the only similarities are White Fang's name and that he was rescued from a cruel man called Beauty Smith.
Why T.V. producers can't seem to come up with an original show with a dog hero and not just reuse a well known story is beyond me. Anyway, White Fang sports fairly good acting, beautiful scenery, and a terrible soundtrack. If you can get over the music, this show is enjoyable in its own right. White Fang is an Alaskan malamute (although they portray him as the stereotypical "wolfdog") who exhibits extraordinary good sense and often rescues his not so bright family from danger with fairly standard hero-dog skills like rescuing drowning people, fending off "wolves" (other malamutes in makeup) and locating important clues at crime scenes. Although the plot lines are simplistic, this is nicely balanced by a lack of gore and swearing, making it acceptable family viewing.
If you are nuts about Nordic breeds and will watch anything featuring them, this show is for you. Others may want to avoid this particular series.
A nice family series

"This is a nice series for a family to watch..... our 9 year old often asks intelligent questions about what's happening on the screen, and there's not a thing that we've been uncomfortable with him seeing. I probably wouldn't watch this on my own, but it's refreshing to have a family oriented show that is only mildly hokey."
WHITE FANG IS A GREAT SERIES
