    I had wondered about this. His show kinda turns me off. But then again, most "reality" shows do. Thanks for the review -- saves me from wondering if I have missed anything.

    Les looks like an idiot on TV, but if you go follow Ray Mears, Paul Matlock or some other guy who is good at living off the land around with a camera there is no drama he just finds food and make shelter if he needs to.
    By making it look hard and showing what can go wrong Les might make a few think about running around in the bush unprepared.
    Don't think I am a fan , I think the guy is an idiot but he serves a purpose.
