    I'm sitting here watching it right now, I only kinda like the show, the only reason I am watching it is because there is nothing else on right now.

    Les from Survivor rules …He’s the man who actually teaches you survival skills. He does it all by himself. That other guy is a actor, who gets help from the person or persons behind the camera … I remember one episode where he was in a cave and built this massive wood fence to block of bears or something it was a bad build and then they so another shot all built nice hahhaha believe me it took more then him lol…It should be called Mens vs Wild.

    The bit where he hits the rabbit with the stick is total BS.

    I bet they shot it with something.

    ohh and the Horse thing seemed fake too.

    Well, I bet some of it is obviously fake... But it does teach you ways to survive.

    Espescially when I will be camping 9mi into the Kenai peninsula for 2 weeks this summer

    That horse might as well have been a unicorn with the fantasies he was having.



    How about when he wore the PFD in the river? You could see it right through his shirt. How about when he was roped up for one of his climbs? Better editing guys.

    Notice how he always "hears" something in the middle of the night?

    Get's old.

    Until he actually shows a bear standing 20 feet away, I'm going to assume it's the damn camera crew.

    Wikipedia "Man vs. Wild":

    The format of this show is similar to that of Survivorman, with the exception being that Survivorman is recorded by the host, while Grylls travels with a two-man camera crew. Grylls contends that the crew is "under very strict instructions not to get involved or help" unless he is in a fatal situation.

    Wikipedia "Survivorman":

    Les also travels with a satellite phone, for use in case of an emergency during the filming process. However, Stroud often discovers (during testing) that the satellite phone does not work.

    The other MVW thread:

    > http://forums.mtbr.com/showthread.php?t=285725

    Both shows rock. But Survivorman hunkers down so he can film himself each night making fire and catching grub. Bear goes two days w/out food before killing and eating rabbit/fish/already-dead-creature.

    After the Apocalypse, the only survivors will be roaches, Oreo Cookies, Banshee Screams, and Bear Grylls.

    Bear Grylls is many times the survivorman that "survivorman" is. That guy's a beast! The presence of a camera crew doesn't mean anything other than it's easier for us to watch from our couches.

    survivorman is way cooler. you can actually learn from it. the shiz bear does is usually a fine example of what not to do. the show is hilarious to watch but i would feel sorry for anyone that actually tries to do what he does cuz its more likely to kill you than save your life.

    I love it! It is so funny and awesome at the same time. "It feels like you are being punched in the chest with a bag of cement!" Quote Bear Grills as he climbs up a waterfall.

    I'm watching it now too, but just to get in some laughs. I completed the Air Forces combat survival course a couple years ago as training for my reserve job and those guys actually love survivorman and Les, they use clips from his show for our annual refresher course we have to do. Man vs. Wild is pretty much a joke, rule #1 when your trying to survive is don't get hurt, as in don't climb down waterfalls or jump into a class 5 rapids with a bunch of tied together sticks. The scenery is pretty epic though, Bear goes to some cool places!

    crap, you're right. BUT .... each of those off the chart stunts are like what you'd do ONCE in a desperate situation. something completely stupid but necessary.

    yet Bear does em every show, just for the camera.

    *that's* why he rocks.

    I have a tough time imagining a situation that would be that dire, in the rockies or the jungle a healthy resourseful person could survive for weeks, tons of opportunity to get food and water. It's all for the camera and its fun to watch but I would highly discourage anyone from watching that show for an educational experience.

    But yes... Bear is a badass, and I want his job I won't lie!

    I watched it this morning and he decided to float down river in his quest to find civilization.
    The editing was'nt clever enough to hide the PFD he had on under his hoodie. Nor the giant beach ball stuffed in his backpack?

    Both shows are good, but yeah i find Bear does stuff that's way too risky for a show about survival. Chimney climb up 60ft slickrock gorges? Sure, that's definitely the best way to stay alive. One of the guys on the backpacking forums I visit was the guide on an episode, and showed a behind the scenes video of them prepping Bear. There were like 20 guys standing around telling him what to say in front of the comera, he'd just repeat it word for word. Mad props to the guy for some of the stuff he does, shame discovery channel wants it so 'extreme' though.

    If you guys like this stuff, definitely search for some stuff by Ray Mears from the UK. Not a bad ass like Bear, but way more knowledgeable. He's got a ton of shows you can find via torrents, never seen them on DVD to buy or anything. Lots more practical knowledge IMO, he'd laugh at the dumb way Bear eats his food (raw, still alive), no doubt.
