Storyline

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.

A horrible example of "reality" programming!
10 October 2015 | by See all my reviews

Delighted to just learn this show was canceled due to an apparent incident of animal cruelty by one of the hosts. HOWEVER, the basic flaw in the production were the contrived "survival" situations in which the various two member teams enacted implausible situations that even a Boy Scout circa 1950 would nave known how to survive.

I was particularly struck by an episode in the Norwegian mountains in which one of the pair was garbed in shorts and a heavy sweater while climbing mountains in apparent sub-zero temperatures with blowing snow and 50-MPH winds. Only an absolute fool would fail to seek shelter in such conditions. Their exposure to frostbite was so obvious all their exposed skin was cherry red.

After watching at least five episodes I could cite at least 10 incidents of totally incompetent survival techniques and/or comments made by these "experts." What a farcical production!
