    Ok gents, correct me if I am wrong but I believe this thread is about a current TV series and it may be wise to get it back on topic. Valid viewpoints on the contestants, methods used, what you would do different etc. are all invited but personal opinions on the presenter and his other shows are best kept to yourself thanks.

    Anything deemed inappropriate or off topic is just going to get erased. Any further comments about free speech, the right to an opinion or references to superior races or dictatorships will really annoy me and you may well end up keeping Adz company.

    Personally I like the show. I treat it as entertainment and the idiot volunteers as a target for derision between the politicians.

    The Mrs likes it too as she gets to laugh at me pulling out what's left of my hair.

    ...And my opinion of Mussollini....... ;p

    Right let's get this back on track. I managed to watch about ten mins of the first episode and then realised that I would only end up shouting at the TV. Not because of Bear, kinda like the bloke as a TV personality and for his other off screen works. But most of these type of shows with amateur survivalist tend to wind me up due to the lack of common sense. The rare exception being man hunter which I really enjoy due to the added pressure of being stalked.

    I can relate to that. From what I gather they only had a days training before being left but common sense is generally lacking. It's something that always used to bug me when I worked in a College, teens coming in from school these days seem to have the same problem.

    Yup. Common sense, ironically not that common and the reason why there is so much H&S legislation in my very humble opinion. Hopefully if anything this type of show highlights that fact to those involved. Would be nice to know how they progress and if they learn from their mistakes.
