Better Than Most
21 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

I'm giving this National Geographic series a 10 as compared to all the other reality series out there. You may not agree with the specifics, but the premise of the show is believable. Sometime in the future, a family may be confronted with a catastrophe that will require them to live by the skin of their teeth and the barest of necessities. They need shelter, they need sustenance, they need to be able to defend themselves. Going by the first two episodes, I'd say they might need some protection from themselves.

Obviously, the show is edited. But I didn't get the feeling that it was semi-scripted, as I do with so many of the other reality shows. There is humor and drama, and just a touch of crazy. I don't want to give away any of action because I think the episodes should be watched without knowing what's coming. If you've missed the first two episodes, they are easy to find as they are being shown repeatedly.

The family is made up of the Dad, two sons and three daughters. As people, they are about as regular as it gets. As a family, they are pretty good representatives of our times. The brothers and sisters come from two different mothers, and the father has brought them together not just to work on the project, but he wants them to bond and become a family that is once again his. They're a good looking cast of characters too. You've got the dark-haired ex- military Real Estate business father with a likable twinkle in his eye, who wears his feelings for all to see; the eldest son who wants to prove some things to his dad as well as to himself; two sisters who obviously have some sibling issues bubbling up to the surface; lastly the younger twin brother and sister, with the brother eager to prove himself and stand on his own two feet while his sister seems to be more multi-talented every time we see her.

All in all, it can't but help that they're a good looking cast of characters and quite photogenic to boot. They're not trapped on an island after a three hour trip, nor are they LOST. Civilization is only a truck-ride away. Yet you will find yourself watching what they do and you'll probably find yourself wondering what you would do IF... Not a bad way to spend an hour on a Tuesday night.
