Adds a new element not present in other survival shows
27 August 2010 | by johnstrash1See all my reviews

Man, Woman, Wild gives a new unique perspective to the ever growing list of survival shows. I am not referring to the fact that one of the hosts is a woman, but rather that one of the hosts is a ordinary person, who just happens to be a woman.

Although I consider myself a bit of an outdoorsman, I find that out of all the different people making shows of this sort, it is Ruth Hawke that I can relate to the most. That she has a hard time with different aspects of each episode really does give viewers a much more realistic idea of what it would be like to be in the same situation. Whether anyone wants to admit it or not, the vast majority of us would be a lot more like her if we were lost in the wilds than we would be like her husband or Bear Grylls.

As for her husband, Mykel Hawkes is a military trained survival expert. His personality is what you would expect from a someone with this background and his disposition can be somewhat rigid. But the interaction he has with his wife definitely improves it and together they can even be funny at times. And he does know his stuff pretty well.

Overall, the show fits into the same category as others like Man versus Wild and Dual Survival. All of these are staged at points (as mentioned in the disclaimer before each episode) and are not real survival like Survivorman. Regardless, it is still educational and very entertaining.
