Pretty good show. I caught a marathon of this on the Outdoor Life Network (OLN). Got hooked, probably because where this took place is one of the most beautiful places in North America - western Canada: British Columbia & the Yukon.
Starting with a group of 15 (i believe) they worked on events together as one team. For each day and a half/2 day period, for a grand total of 30 days, a new leader was chosen. Instead of voting someone off, the team voted for the leader and at the end of the leader's term, he or she would have to remove whomever they wanted.
Starting in Vancouver, BC they worked their way to the Arctic Circle by Ford, rafting, canoeing, hiking, helicopter, & plane. Along the way the remaining players got to know each other and form bonds often making it more and more difficult to kick someone off when that time came. Lots of tears, some backstabbing but not very much, an alliance or two, men vs. women, yada yada yada... just think Survivor up North with a few differences, kinder people, more of a challenge and this is what you have. Of course, I never really watched Survivor since that show is for morons. No Boundaries was geared more for those interested in the outdoors and I don't mean gardening
backpacking, kayaking, climbing, exciting & challenging things like
that. In the end the competition boiled down to the only event where they competed against each other, where the last three players didn't really need that much skill, just luck and a good memory.
If you like Survivor and have more than half a brain, if you have an appreciation for things not involving a tv, remote control, and a sofa, this might interest you. Then again, mayhaps I have no clue what I'm talking about and you'll hate this show. In any case, locations were FABULOUS! Now stop reading this, get off the computer, and go climb a mountain!
