Running with Reindeer, 'Whisker Wars'Sometimes the fun of watching reality television is so you can live vicariously through the antics of other people. That way you can experience things you might never otherwise explore in your real life. Things like running with reindeer with 'Whisker Wars' (Fri., 11PM ET on IFC).

Sure, it looks fun on TV, but in reality it's a crazy, dangerous and exhilarating thing to do. So when Miletus Callahan-Barile decided to take part in the Running of the Reindeer of Alaska, we could get a taste of how fun that looks without having to deal with the cold or risk life and limb.

Granted, it's not nearly as dangerous, perhaps, as running with the bulls in Spain, but the announcer made sure to let everyone know, "These are the angriest the reindeer have ever been. We're gonna see some injuries today, folks."

Callahan-Barile came through unscathed, but said of the run, "There is something liberating and strangely empowering, so that's a whole 'nother level of experience." And now it's an experience we can sort of say we went through as well.
