Glad to see another season coming up. I like his show so much more than Man vs. Wild.

As for the house, I'd like to see an update on that as well.

Good to see.

I like the information that Les brings. More practical and real world. Not so much like a "Show"........

I still want to know what became of the house he and his wife were building out in the woods... "Off the grid".
I only got to see one episode where he was installing his alt. energy and went live with it. I want to see more!

I enjoy Survivorman much more than Man vs. Wild. He acts like it's an action movie where Les takes the more realistic approach to surviving.

Yeah, Bear is like some "MTV-generation let's show off my climbing and jumping skills, and eat gross stuff."
Have you seen the video where he is supposedly out in the middle of a lava field being really careful not to make the dried lava collapse then some guy appears from the left and strolls across it, then the camera pans and you see a busy highway not more than a couple hundred yards away?

I don't think they deny this. I know they have stayed in hotels while out "roughing" it.

Les Stroud is great.

I think i have watched every episode of survivor man and his other shows including "off the grid" "Surviving urban disasters" and "snow shoes in solitude"

Very inspiring individual.

Don't care to much for the other show "Man VS Wild"

OK, I guess I am the only one that has never heard of this show, so I went to the link and see it is on a cable/dish network. Is it a good enough show for me to sign up for cable/dish service? I never really saw much else on cable/dish to be worth watching so I still use rabbit ears. Not that broadcast TV has that much to offer either.

Just call me old I guess. I have no idea how to 'text' anyone either and I refuse to carry the damn cell phone my employer provides for me. Anyone wants to get a hold of me can do it the old fashioned way - via email. :)

Get the 'Green' channel, they are covering it there...

NOPE! Not at all!
His so called 'Survival' is pretty silly most of the time.

He and that 'Bear' guy pass on big, fat rattle snakes so they can eat really disgusting things like bugs, grubs, and the eyeballs/brains out of long dead animals...
Stuff my military survival instructor would kick our butts for doing!

"Survivorman" goes to Alaska, finds a fishing net on the beach, and instead of making a casting net (While the salmon were running no less!) he makes a drift net out of it and catches nothing...
Winds up eating part of a long dead castoff salmon some bird or bear didn't finish...

Makes his 'Shelter' right on the beach! Facing the water no less!
Can't figure out why he's cold!

Any boyscout can tell you NEVER face the water,
NEVER build on the lowest point of ground where it's coldest,
And NEVER leave the windward side open!
..............

Both of them are in it for the 'Gross Out' factor most of the time, and both of them make mistakes that would get you killed in the real world if you tried them!

Yeah, I've just found "The Unit" online!!! They've moved that show around so much I can't keep up with the storyline!!

It's great because you can watch it in 44 minutes without too many annoying commercials.

"The Unit" is one of my favorites :cool:
