Show Guide: 'Gold Rush: Freddy Dodge's Mine Rescue'

03 January, 2021

Synopsis: Freddy Dodge is no stranger when it comes to gold mining. With nearly 40 years of mining under his belt, he’s known around the world as the “Gold Guru” and the person struggling mine owners call when they’re striking out. Now he’s going on the road to help struggling mine owners to hit the motherlode.

Freddy is a cheat code when it comes to gold mining. The gold fields of America have become packed with regular people — out-of-work families, groups of friends and lone wolfs – all looking to cash in on rising gold prices. But after sinking everything into their operation, many are ready to call it quits. In each episode, Freddie will share his hard-earned practical knowledge about where to look for gold as well as the inside tips on mining and sluicing it.

To help him turnaround the operations, Freddy has teamed up with expert mechanic and fellow Gold Rush miner Juan Ibarra. At each location, the mining duo will use their knowledge of geology, prospecting, drilling and testing to get back on the paydirt.  But it isn’t just running their dirt faster. It’s about making the operations better, and more importantly, running cheaper.

Freddy and Juan will team up to overhaul washplants, introduce never-before-seen gold recovery techniques and attempt to transform each operation. If Freddy succeeds, he could change the mine owners lives forever. With all the tools and skills in place, the miners could hit the jackpot. (Courtesy Discovery+, 2021)

Show Guide: 'Monster Garage' (2021)

03 January, 2021

Synopsis: Jesse James, legendary fabricator and founder of West Coast Choppers is returning to Discovery after fourteen years with a renewed passion for creating some of most mind-blowing vehicles to ever drive across television screens. James, along with a new crew of maverick mechanics each week, set out to continue his legacy and inspire a new generation of builders.

With a focus on elevating mechanical and automotive vision in the shop, James is once again looking to accomplish the impossible and will be working with some of the most talented craftsmen and women in the country. Each episode will feature five builders from diverse backgrounds who are given five days to transform an ordinary street vehicle into a one-of-a-kind monster machine. If they’re successful, they leave the garage with $5,000 worth of tools, and Jesse can take the vehicle out for a high-octane monster challenge.  But if they fail, James gets to blow it up.

"I’m very thankful for Discovery CEO David Zaslav for keeping the Monster Garage candle lit for the last 10 years. We always knew we would eventually bring it back. I also knew when that day came, I needed to be ready. More skills in my toolbox and a clear mind and schedule. Ready to put my head down and work as hard as possible to push the limits of TV again," said Jesse James.

James challenges each team of mechanics with some of the wildest builds they’ve ever heard of – from constructing the world’s largest pulse jet engine to use as the power source for a vintage Jaguar to turning a typical farm tractor into a dragster, these builds lead to some of the most epic endings in Monster Garage history. In addition, James takes another shot at one of the builds from the original series that has been haunting him: The Hovercraft DeLorean – and it will either be a complete failure or one of the garage’s most insane redemption stories.

Jesse James is more talented than ever and he’s ready to break all the rules when it comes to custom builds. (Courtesy Discovery+, 2021)

Movies And Specials: 'Onision: In Real Life'

03 January, 2021

Synopsis: In the fall of 2019, the internet was transfixed with allegations against one of Youtube’s biggest and most controversial stars, Onision. Women came forward accusing him of unconscionable behavior, and the digital world swirled with rumors. But after weeks of frantic attention, there was a sudden quiet. And the mystery remained: what did Onision really do? 

It all started when Greg Jackson, known to the world as "Onision," discovered YouTube. The platform was still gaining popularity, and as the power of YouTube grew, the character “Onision” grew with it. Jackson amassed millions of subscribers across multiple channels, luring in viewers with his off kilter, opinionated and often dark humor. But while his wildly popular channels were twisted, what was going on in his real life appears more sinister, and, according to his accusers, possibly criminal.

According to one of his accusers, Jackson is the type of man who knows the legal age of consent in every state. It is alleged that he and his partner have manipulated relationships with minors, later sexualizing these relationships once they’ve reached legal age. Jackson is known for communicating with fans online, which, observers say, has only made it easier for him to find, connect and correspond with young admirers. He has had multiple relationships with fans, some public, some more private. But now women are coming forward saying they were coerced, claiming they had been groomed, manipulated and preyed upon by the YouTuber. Law enforcement is investigating, but as more accusers come forward, so do more questions.

Onision: In Real Life covers every twist in this saga as it continues to unfold in real time.  Featuring exclusive interviews with his father, Randy Jackson; his ex-fiancé, Shiloh; and acclaimed television journalist Chris Hansen; each episode puts Jackson’s past under the microscope, dissecting his bizarre antics, vicious behavior and alleged predatory actions. The series also includes poignant interviews with other accusers, investigators and YouTubers, as well as vast archival content from Onision’s own channels. The series explores the mystery, controversy and alleged misconduct surrounding Greg Jackson, begging the question:  in a world abounding with influencers, what happens when one goes too far?
