16 June 2017 | by See all my reviews

Had to pen this in answer to the review that calls it pathetic then goes on to praise Bear "gimme money" Grylls - Whaaat?! I would have to assume that reviewer is around 10 years old.

Ruth and Mykel are a cute married couple who obviously have great fun in their relationship and it shines through in the show. He's the caveman ex-army guy from USA and she's the squealing British newsreader with little to no experience but a ton of enthusiasm. Their couple dynamic and Ruth's reactions are amusing and balance the "danger" and survival tips nicely.

While some of the scenarios are reminiscent of Les Stroud's "survivorman", this goes it's own way and makes no bones about being a survival entertainment series with camera crew and backup. No imbecilic posturing or eating bear crap here, thank goodness.

2 seasons worth which I watched with my daughter of 21 and my partner. We all enjoyed it thoroughly and actually learnt a few things too. Had a few giggles and would happily watch more.

As for Mykel's growly voice and his regular "hey baby" to his wife, they are part of the charm. Good stuff.
