Shots of Palin reality show revealed

(CNN) – Can't get enough of Sarah Palin? You're in luck.

The former Alaska governor's adventure-themed show on TLC is set to debut in one month, but the trailer is already making the rounds online.

The 30 second action-packed preview shows the former vice presidential candidate braving the Alaska elements - including trekking up a mountain, kayaking over river rapids while bears look on, and dog sledding.

This is 'flippin' fun!' Palin says at one point. "Why can't we ever just be satisfied with tranquility?"

The show will also apparently provide insights into the Palin household. At another moment in the trailer, viewers see the Alaska Republican instructing her youngest daughter, "No boys go upstairs!"

And for political observers who are wondering how serious the GOP rock star is about launching a White House run in 2012, perhaps Palin drops a hint of her own:

"I'd rather be doing this than in some stuffy old political office," Palin says as cameras show the former governor navigating rugged Alaska trails on an all-terrain vehicle.

The total series will run eight episodes and debut November 14, TLC says. It is directed by Mark Burnett, the producer behind the long-running nature-themed Survivor show.

    I'm really glad Palin is enjoying herself. She had no time to complete her 4 year term as Governor, so she quit and abandoned the people in her state to take an extended vacation and higher pay. Good for her, America loves a quitter.

    Funny how she never did ANY of those things as a normal citizen of Alaska... "Can't get enough" of Palin? How about "can't get AWAY" from the nightmare that is Sarah Palin? Enough already!!! Her voice makes me nauseous, her school marm looks make me turn away (she reminds me of my 4th grade teacher, who hated me), and the content of her character is ... well... unmeasurable. She's completely devoid of character. Make it stop!

    "I'd rather be doing this than in some stuffy old political office," Palin says as she rides an ATV on her reality show promo. @@@@ So, Palin seems to just promoting politicians for the money. Hey, that's okay.

    She looks right at home in a helmet, and I'm lookin' forward to seein' her play the banjo! As long as somebody's around to mind her so she doesn't pick things up and put them in her mouth, this should be a great show! I'm bettin' Republicans are excited, because there hasn't really been anything on the teevee box for them to watch since Hee Haw got cancelled. Can't wait to see Sarah rassle a b'ar an' do some mud-doggin' on her ATV! Yeeee-haw! Forget about 3-D, this is TV you can smell!
