Joshua Bam Bam Brown,
This is a really entertaining show and my husband and I have binge watched the whole series in the last week. It's been great entertainment while we have a newborn at home. We love the concept and watching the real life goals for people living in the wilderness.
That being said, a few of the subjects are hard to watch.
Firstly, Andy is an abusive jerk. Laughing at Kate's pain after smashing her hands and blaming his stupid screw ups on her. It was disappointing to see him return to the show.
Sue Aikens is so dang annoying. She brags constantly and talks about herself in the most self-righteous tone and verbiage, it's so hard to watch her segments. She talks about every little thing as if it's life and death and then how strong she views herself for conquering it. She's the only person on the show that has consistent electricity, doesn't use firewood or fire of any kind, has food from the grocery store frequently, and yet she brags more than anyone else about her subsistence lifestyle. She's also a horrible shot. It may be the editing, but she also has her machinery break down all the time in ways that shouldn't happen if she is consistently maintaining them. She's vulgar, self-righteous, and incredibly annoying. Everything about her and her childish hats make us want to fast forward through her parts of the show. I CANNOT fathom why her face would be the face of the show.
Glenn is the most reliant on the land but frankly he's kind of creepy sometimes. His naked swimming trips don't help that.
Jessie was just a dirty slob that yanked his dogs around with complete disregard for them and fed them atrocious slop. Even Andy was better than him with his dogs.
The Hailstone's and the Salitan's were the best parts of the show and we thoroughly enjoyed their parts. They solidified our desire to travel to Alaska in the next few years.
