I would watch that.

I am currently addicted to "Alone." It's like Survivor except, as the title suggests, they are alone, and not surviving seems like a very real possibility. The people on the show seem to actually be qualified to be there, they don't have game show moments where teams are competing for catered meals, and it's freaking terrifying.

The gray in Les's beard makes me realize how old I've become.

We've been watching that here the last few weeks.  Cant remember what season, but someone got sick after eating a muskrat.  "Feels like I ate a muskrat" is now the new way of saying your stomach hurts around here.

I watched the Arctic Circle season, which was incredibly intense, and the fact that cultures have managed to persist and thrive in those conditions (Inuits) is absolutely amazing.  I just started watching the first season, which is pretty intense given the constant rain and concentration of predators.

I'll certainly watch if. Les Stroud seems to be one of the few people who could make it in the wilderness unlike that other staged survivor bullshiat.

The grey in *my* beard reminds me how old I've become

Surviorman was on the air before the fake "Man vs. Wild" crap.  I'm fairly certain it was before Hurricane Katrina, or maybe it was some other big flooding event, because he did a short series shortly after that, where he was trapped in a flooded house, and was showing how to survive.

(I want to say he used a large pot to contain a fire he made from smashed up wooden furniture, and then put the oven grate on top of it to hold his pot.  And he used the citrus in the fridge to make ceviche with whatever seafood was in the fridge before it spoiled)

So maybe this new show isn't quite as back-to-basics as his original show, but being a fan of his original series, and a foodie, I'm sure I'll watch it, assuming it's on a channel I get.

In a similar vein, there was a cooking show many years ago where there were two or three professional chefs, who were taken to places with indigenous people, and they'd learn about the local food culture, then have to make a meal that the locals would judge, but they'd have to work with the locals to collect ingredients.  Searching online makes me think it was No Kitchen Required, but I thought it was earlier than that, and British. (although it wouldn't be the first time Americans have copied a show's premise from the UK)

OK, did I miss the part where they said where these shows would be playing?
