Bear Grylls is Back

Bear Grylls is Back

Bear's sixth season of Man vs. Wild is set to air next week. The show has been hugely successful, but does it back up all the hype?

I do and will watch the shows. Whether or not he's been "aided" is, to me, immaterial; the scenarios,off-the-cuff, save -Ur-ass solutions are what keep me an avid follower.

BG has jumped into a number of Frozen lakes AS AN EXAMPLE of what you might have to do to survive. not only has he drunk his own Urine AS AN EXAMPLE, he can joke about it. The SAS entry course is extremely brutal. Hey I love Bear

For sure Harley -- no argument. However, Bear is unique because is the real thing; and therefore has the ability to set the scenarios up -- scenarios in which people realistically find themselves. I have learned much from Bear. He inspired me to begin reading my books on wild herbs, and plants that have been sitting on the shelves for years. Nevertheless I would not travel to far away places that prohibited firearms.

Seems to me several fellows got the jump on old Bear. I`m reminded of 3 right off.
Jim Bridger, John "Liver eating Johnson, and John Colter, just to name a select few, of many.
Scrap the TV and pick up a book, it is real and these guys did not get their supplies from Rodeo Drive.
If you want to learn survival, learn from the pros. After all, who do you think these survival show guys got their knowledge from? The real survivalists, Mountain Men.
Yes it`s TV and entertainment and I take it for what it is, just that, entertainment.
Personally I would rather watch Les Stroud, at least he films his own segments and stays away from the high drama.
Bear seems to think he is 007. That is ok also, just not my choice, but admirable just the same.

I hope he does have a backpack full of nutritional items. There is an editorial at the beginning of each show admitting Bear gets help if the situation is life threatening. The point of the show is to show people how to survive when victimized by their worse nightmares -- circumstances that are usually once in a lifetime experiences. How long would anyone last if they lived those experiences every day? All survival shows have back-up; just as most leading men have stunt men.

I think it is a good show and there are a lot of nature and survival tips that you can learn from watching. He has a good personality and is informative and educational. That being said you have to take it for what it is, a TV show.

I question sometimes whether some of the scenarios are faked or not or if there is a backpack full of granola bars and MRE's nearby but who knows.

It is better than a lot of the other crap that is on TV.
