Real drama!
26 June 2006 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

I know the moment I saw the title and the series having its trailers on the Discovery Channel here, I so know I have to watch. Being almost at death's door once, I so understand the feeling of almost never making it.

So far actually I had only watched like two episodes so far, but I am trying to watch the other episodes available on the Discovery Channel on the cable here. With drama and real-life accounts of those who were involved, one can be very sure it's definitely not a reality show. A no-holds-barred series.

Definitely a series where the human limit is really tested to the very extremes. Where humans can actually triumphed over adversaries in dire situations.
