  1. Sorry to hear that real Mallory died during the expedition to summit Everest..but why do humans want to conquer the nature? Should have left the Everest alone...

    1. That is what I always ask, it is so stupid to me. It is not like it brings anything to humanity, but it costs a lot, I think that just the permits to climb the Everest cost a few hundred thousand bucks. We had a climber who died like that and the city built him a park. Like what? You get a park for climbing mountains and dying there?

    1. I haven not watched her before, but she will certainly get noticed after this series if Starz does a good job with it.

    1. He did die but we do not know if he managed to reach the top first or not. Probably not given that there are no proofs that he did.

  4. Most of commentators in the google support that he died on the everest.

  5. I agree. Scaling mountains is sheer stupidity. I can't believe some of them climb mountains, stepping over the dead bodies of others who didn't make it themselves, and think they are the exception to the harsh conditions. I have no sympathy for those who risk their lives and end up expiring on a mountain.

    1. They are a bunch of idiots! Imagine giving birth to him for hours and then he goes and kills himself climbing!

    2. I'd bring him back from the dead and kill him all over again for being such an idiot.

    3. That is what they'd deserve.
