The manliest man in the history of mankind.
8 June 2016 | by (athens) – See all my reviews

This is a series which I grew watching on Weekends and to put it simple if you have not the stomach for what is showed on Man versus Wild then do not see it ,you will feel ill. But for those who the phase "I drunk my own pee" makes them feel nostalgia then my comrades this is the show for us ,the persons who if the apocalypse comes then you are going to be as happy as ten year old in a candy-shop.

To the series ,Man versus Wild with Bear Grylls is a reality series in which the ex royal marine Bear Grylls goes to desolate places and shows us who to survive ,find food ,water ,protection and finally return back to civilization mostly in one peace(:)) . In a sense is a survivor guide line for extreme situations ,like been alone in Siberia and how to find water in the Saxara Dessert( fun fact Saxara means "Dessert" so when you say "Saxara Dessert" you actually say "Dessert Dessert") . For real some of his advises are often simple common sense and it amazes me that some of the tricks he was teaching us I already knew or could think on the spot. It just astonishes me who easy could you do it ,but this a way to show you that usually the reason why people who are lost and do not come back are those who went face problems like these portrait here, they start acting stupidly and in the end nature claim their bodies!!! As the man ,mr Grylls, said him self " Survival can be sum ed up in three words "Never give up". That's the hard really just keep trying".

We have heard something like that all the time by friends, parents ,teachers we look down on them ,because they ,for all their good indecencies, fail to caught out attention so their moral lesson goes to waste. Mr Grylls knowing that he first do something extreme on the opening of the episode like sky diving towards the open Ocean(!!!) and then step by step shows how surviving is done.

If you are going to dismiss this series for its content them ,you do not deserve the Grilling ( pun intended) lessons and for those want to see it, it is on YouTube ,knock yourselves out survivors!
