This is NOT a complete season. One of the earliest episodes is missing and the Extreme Prep edition episode is also missing. I thought I was getting the entire season and the product description specifically says the Extreme Prep edition was included. I might not have bought this if I had known it was incomplete and I definitely will not be buying one as a gift as I had originally planned.

Full Season 1 of Doomsday Preppers.

Say what you want about the "characters" involved in the various episodes, but the bottom line is this - are you prepared? Likewise, do you have any friends or colleagues who you have bounced ideas off to create and assemble your emergency reaction plan? Probably not, is my guess. On the other hand, with these videos, you can extract the good and bad, the essential and non-essential, and develop your own plan. The program presents 2-4 different groups of individuals in each episode with a different crisis focus. For example, some preppers focus on EMP (Electronic Magnetic Pulse) disasters, other focus on the results of an economy meltdown, others on natural and man-made disasters. In any case, the concept each prepper conveys is the Boy Scout motto of "Be Prepared". My thinking is that anyone who watches this series (at least this 1st season) will have a better chance to formulate their own ideas of whether making any emergency plans is worth their while. And if so, it's quite easy to filter through the sometimes odd personalities who've made the show what it is. Thing is, after an emergency, the issue of odd personalities will be a moot point. As they say, would you rather be six months too early or one-day too late in your emergency planing? My thinking is that everyone should analyze their own exposure to disaster (e.g., hurricanes, storm surges, tsunamis, nuclear radiation leakage, earthquakes, floods, and of course the darker concept of whether or not these United States of America will always be acceptably free and that our way of life will never be challenged). In any case, be prepared, patriots.

As a father, anything less than being prepared, and making the family prepared, seems beyond a criminal offense.

Semper Paratus.

Prepping seems to be coming out of the shadows, at least as far as mass media is concerned and NatGeo has gotten in on the act. I'm a "prepper" too, if you consider someone who's had to go without during an emergency and will never do so again a "prepper". That said, there's a few things I's like to adress with season 1.

The format is fairly standard for a "reality documentary". It does go with the more extreme folks rather than the more common folks who are just putting some things aside for rougher times. But that's OK, in most of the cases. I found many of the people to be pretty ingenious in how they've approached what they perceive to be The End Of The World As We Know It. Maybe they're right, maybe they're wrong. A few might even be slightly over the top (well, there are a few that I think put a step ladder on the top and went from there...) But they have what they consider to be valid reasons for doing what they're doing, so who am I to argue?

I found lots of little TTPs (tactics, tips, and practices) that I could apply to my own situation. In that regard, season 1 was worth it hands down.

I also found that I absolutely detest the rating system that Practical Preppers apply at the end of every segment. Not because they may or may not be right about aspects of that individual's preparedness, but becuase they fit that rating into a "box". Many preppers have to think outside the box, due to circumstances, finances, whatever, but the rating system seems to ignore that. In a few cases, even I found it insulting. I know they carried it over into season 2, but I'm hoping that if there is a season 3 that either gets changed or dropped entirely.

Ok first off Did National Geographic exploit these folks for our
entertainment? Darn right they did! That being said it is a very entertaining and interesting show if you are interested in SHTF
or apocalyptic genres. The thing that really peeved me off big time was how National Geographic "pooh-poohed" these peoples concerns and reasons for prepping. If you do your own research on some of their motivational concerns you wll find them far more likely even inevitable... Fact we are over due for a pole shift, the mayans, hopi, even nasa have predicted it occurring SOON. Fact our economy is toasted. Fact we are in a period of powerful solar activity that could cause a global EMP. And fact, China holds trillions of dollars of our debt what would happen if they called it?. This video series doesn't teach you how to be a prepper but it shows you how to start and offers many things you might never consider. Can you bake bread? Purify water? Will everyone remain friendly and curteous in an extended disaster... What will you do if your grocry store isn't restocked every three days?
So yes very entertaining! And yes it might make you think.
