A group of amateur survivalists are put to the ultimate test in the wild for 40 days with nothing but a few primitive tools. No food. No clothing. No water. They must hunt and gather whatever they need until extraction day.
You can rate this either way up or way down. Fact is it isn't that bad. Annoying characters? Yeah. Some. But we deal with those in real life daily. Sometimes in the same home so it adds to the reality then doesn't it? Scenery is amazing. Truly. Editing can be considered rough but seems to be geared towards someone opening the episode without ever having seen the beginning. I watch this with my kids and there is a lot to be learned from watching these families and individuals deal with their lives. Considering how popular garbage surrounding the Kardashians is or even back with the Jersey Shore tools, this show is definitely a win. And I mean c'mon, how many people do you know with a pet fox? That's worth something.
