Experts agree there are some very basic - and universal - rules for surviving in the wild. Find shelter, find water, find food, find help. Beyond that, there's not much they agree on. Meet military trained Dave Canterbury and naturalist Cody Lundin - trained survival experts who have very different methods of meeting survival challenges. Together, with their drastically different backgrounds, the pair are dropped into scenarios that could happen to anyone: marooned sailors, lost hikers, trapped divers and stranded mountain climbers. Equipped with minimal gear that would have been carried in the real-life situations, Cody and Dave must draw upon their arsenal of skills to devise extraordinary ways to use what they can find in their surroundings to demonstrate what it takes to stay alive.

Does anyone actually believe these two will not be rescued? Seriously folks there are two camera men who we never see but who are constantly present (probably with satellite phones at the ready). The producers know exactly where they are. None of the situations they get stuck in are realistic I would never expect to ever see a similar situation so there is virtually no reason at all to "learn" what to do from what these experts in survival offer us. More importantly there is little to suspend belief and nothing to make me believe they are at much risk.
I have no doubt that the information these two experts is show us is legit, but I just cannot muster up enough to care. Aside from the basic humanity there is nothing in common for me.
