Storyline

The main focus is how the survivors survived and the decisions they made that kept them alive; not who survived and who died. Written by Anonymous

Interesting, exciting and educating!
25 January 2014 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

This is a very good show, or at least as far as I have watched it at the moment: series 1, 2 and 3. The actors are very good - although in most cases one has never heard of them! - and the reenactment of the accidents and ordeals are both very realistic and very dramatic. The fact that one knows that it is real events and not fiction, makes it more interesting and exciting than a work of fiction.

I like it that they do neither blow up heroes or gloat in misery. The real events speak for themselves. Also, you learn a lot from this. I feel that if I would ever find myself in a survival situation, I would be more prepared now. I have also got myself some basic survival gear, that I always carry around with me. This show can save lives!

The only thing I have against it, is that they show glimpses of what is to come in the beginning of the program, and also in between after the commercial breaks. Although the glimpses are very short, they are enough to spoil some of the fun for me - so I try to look away and not to listen then. And also the fact that they tell in the beginning how many days the events took place over. I do not want to know that in advance!
