Brilliant Bear shows what reality shows are all about
25 October 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Never commented on a show before, but i am really enthralled by this show. Its great entertainment, in the calibre of the Steve Irwin shows but with more end product he does not just fight the animals he eats them to survive.

Bear himself is a charming individual with little references to his past exploits in the SAS and his many expeditions.

This show is great viewing more so if your a man, you can call me daft if you don't find this show interesting. Visually great landscapes especially the episode were Bear goes board rafting down one of the wildest rivers in Africa now that is not staged managed no matter what other people have commented on how the show looses its edge because of the camera crew coming along for the ride.

I would have give it 10/10 but the only show which deserves that is

I,m Alan Partridge.
