With post-apocalyptic shows like "The Walking Dead" and "Revolution" all the rage these days, it should come as no surprise that one of National Geographic Channel's most popular reality shows is "Doomsday Preppers."

Plus, there's that pesky Mayan prediction thing about the world ending on December 21, 2012 hanging over our heads.
"Doomsday Preppers," about to start its second season, spotlights how ordinary folks are gearing up for the end of the world as we know it. While many of their efforts may seem impressive and quite thorough to those of us who aren't preparing, the expert assessments in each episode reveal weaknesses in even the most meticulous plans.
