Steven S. Ross,
I'm not much of a television viewer (aside from the news) but I loyally watched all the episodes of Surviving disaster. Surviving Disaster is a kickass show. The show deals with modern day, worst case scenario's a person can find himself/herself stuck in, and what you should do to survive. The show is presented in the form of a simulation (plus some interviews with experts and victims on experiences and the why question). Surviving disaster is presented by Navy SEAL Cade Courtley, who is in a crisis situation along with the viewer and gives 'real-time' feedback on what you should do. Likes been said in the other reviews I also found this style of televisionmaking pretty interesting because the host makes you feel the tension of the situation and the urge to react quickly.
The show deals with matters as home invasions (and kidnapping), plane hijacking, fire, mall shootings, hurricanes, earthquakes, pandemics etc. You'll learn the craziest stuff like how to make weapons, how to take down an enemy, how to manipulate basically anything in your environment to your advantage, and the show even teaches you how to safely take down a plane !
I have never seen a program that deals with these topics in such a fascinating way. If you don't want to watch the show for learning ways to increase your survival wits, it's entertaining enough just to see it for the crazy scenario's. The old episodes can still be watched for free on the website of Spike TV. Top notch show. 10/10
