The show is worth watching, but not for the survival skills. The host is just hilarious trying to scare viewers. A good example was one that showed viewers what to do if an 18-wheeler pulled out in front of you while you are motorcycling. (You are supposed to go into a skid and slide under the truck, hopefully sliding out before the back wheels crush you.) That is where the best part of the show was. The host says to us viewers: "Pay attention. Some day you WILL have to slide a motorcycle under a truck."
Damn. I always thought that the fact that I have never ridden a motorcycle and never will would sort of guarantee that I wouldn't have to do that. Apparently there are no guarantees. I just hope when that day DOES come, I will remember the night I watched this show and saw some stunt guy do it once.
