Unrealistic survival show
23 December 2019 | by Always_ForwardSee all my reviews

23Dec2019 {1/10 stars = F} Recommend? No

Every episode is based on Hazen doing something for a tribe or some physically demanding feat. Every episode starts with an episode preview and show introduction that I fast forward through. Some episodes have a quick recap near the 30 minute mark. Watching this series with commercial free Hulu sometimes there will be a brief repeated statement or comment by Hazen after what was a commercial break when this series originally aired with commercials. Episodes end with a quick recap during the credits and final closing scene and statement from Hazen.

Aside from all of the time wasting repeating content during this series Hazen shows some unique ways of surviving in the wilderness in a variety of climates. S1E4 he quickly shows how to make a hammock out of fresh cut bamboo. S1E5 Hazen makes a long 2 day trek for the Maasai to make an animal meat sacrifice for their god on top of a volcano.

Hazen does a lot of unrealistic strenuous physical activity, oftentimes with very little food or nourishment. The storyline of Hazen doing something for a tribe or a physical feat gets very old. Survivorman with Les Stroud is more informative and realistic. Survivorman is a much better show.

CONTENT ADVISORY: No profanity or censor bleeps. Dead animals shown, animals briefly shown being butchered and prepared for human consumption, dangerous life threatening wilderness scenarios are shown, like crossing a raging river, traveling and surviving in brutal snowy conditions.

S1E1: Hazen talks about head hunters and cannibalism. Black and white pictures of decapitated heads shown being held by native man. S1E5: during a scene Hazen quickly mentions having blood mixed with milk for dinner with the Maasai.

S1E3: very unrealistic. Hazen travels a long distance in extreme cold and snow pulling a sled that he says weighs 200 pounds. Yet he doesn't have any food on that sled and instead traps a bird and scavenges for other food. Also during this episode reindeer blood "pancakes" are shown being cooked and consumed.

S1E7: Hazen travels with a herd of yaks. He shows a skinned yak head he is carrying for food as recommended by a tribe. He shows how to remove a yak tongue with the "recommended" method of biting the tongue with his teeth and ripping the tongue from the mouth. Chops the top of the same yak skull open with his machete and is shown removing, cooking and eating the yak brain.

S2E1: Tribal nudity warning shown frequently. Mostly shirtless men shown hunting, and butt cheeks seen due to loincloth worn by the men as they're hunting. Just before the credits there are some native women briefly seen with bare breasts, celebrating the hunt and killing of a wild pig that is shown.

S2E2: Tribal nudity warings shown occasionally. African women breasts shown about 2 minutes after show preview and intro. Approximately 34 minutes, breasts shown from a distance in slow motion with slight bouncing. Closeup side view of tribal womans breast with nipple near end of show.
