Good for him. I started watching his show on NBC. He seems like a nice guy who enjoys what he's doing and loves educating people who want to learn more about surviving in the wild. My wife had the hots for him and his accent.

I took a bath in herbal tea today, and when I looked down at the water, all I could think about was that meme, and it made me laugh.

/ I'm easily entertained.

I haven't seen this show. Is it filmed right behind his villa on a resort island where the camera crew has to work hard to keep the craft services table out of frame?

Moved recently, and got cable for the new house, after not having it for about 3 years (gotta have sports if you're gonna live with the MIL). One of the first things I saw on Science Channel was "Survivorman and Son". It was a good day.

No, it's the one with supposed urbanites left on a deserted island.

Well, when I say urbanites, I mean at least 3 professional television production crew members who had been working on previous Grylls' projects and know all survival tricks of the trades. They were introduced as having a quick tutoring on the video equipment before the show began. Unfortunately, an idiot can see that the camera shots are very professional and can't be learned in a short space of time, even if they try to make it all shakey-cam on purpose.

The show is also the one where they actually prepped the island to have water supplies - they had dug a large hole and filled it with water for the stranded to find beforehand. And they also supplied a couple of young 'wild and dangerous' alligators for them to catch and eat.

Shiat show. But it is a show. It's a popular genre, this 'Oh noooes, we back in nature and we might die' bollocks.

Pheh. I preferred the original: Parts: A Clonus Horror.

It's funny because the point of his show was to teach people how to escape from scenarios and not to just watch a man surviving in scenarios, and nobody understood that!

It failed at that too.  You don't exert 1,000+ calories to catch eight grubs to eat.  When faced with a rocky obstacle, you don't climb up the waterfall in the middle of it, no matter how cool it looks or how the water makes your shirt stick to your chiseled abs.

This. Most of his show was what not to do.
