Editorial Reviews

Experts agree there are some very basic and universal rules for surviving in the wild. Find shelter, find water, find food, find help. Beyond that, there s not much they agree on. Meet military-trained Dave Canterbury and naturalist Cody Lundin trained survival experts featured in this series. Together, Canterbury and Lundin take on some of the planet s most unforgiving terrain to demonstrate in their own way how the right skills and some creative thinking can keep you alive. Dave Canterbury joined the U.S. Army at age 17, eventually becoming a Special Reaction Team (SRT) instructor and sniper. He trained soldiers in the U.S., Central America and Korea in unarmed combat and close-quarter techniques.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Oscar & Felix Of Surviving August 2, 2011
By MadMacs
Going back to Ron Hood and Ray Mears, I'm a huge fan of 'survival' type programs. And the torch they started back in the day are carried on with skill and honor with productions like 'Survivorman' and 'Man Woman Wild'. Showcasing basic skills that the average person can learn and, if necessary, apply.

Having spent time in the (fairly benign) woods of my youth, and later as a young soldier, I can testify to the many practical applications displayed by Dave Canterbury and Cody Lundin. Simple things like not panicking and mentally working out the situation are often not adhered to by even the most conscientious of instructors who often immediately jump into 'the lesson'.

What I love about the guys, and humble studs like Les Stroud and Mykel Hawke, is that they attempt to display the basic framework of survival to an average person. They're not out to prove how badass they are, nor are they implying that you need to be a veteran of the special forces or have extreme outdoor training in order to succeed. Dave and Cody take the approach that any Joe or Jane Average might be able to learn; just enough pointers that a regular person might be able to utilize in an unexpected situation. It's not a stunt show like some other so-called survival programs which seem to promulgate the very worst kind of decision-making, and adopting what almost every field expert describes as an insane life-threatening pace.

What makes Dual Survival such an incredible resource, and an admittedly very entertaining resource, is that you couldn't find two more divergent individuals to pair together. They're the 'Oscar and Felix' of the survival field manuals.

5.0 out of 5 stars My favorite survivalist show August 25, 2011
Before I started caring about real survival, I liked shows like Bear Grylis Man vs Wild(i think). Now that I actually care about surviving, I LOVE this show. I like having both Cody Lundin, who lives his life completely off grid, and has respect for nature and animal life, isn't afraid to eat plants, and I love Dave Canterbury the bad ass that he is. They are both about survivng, and showcasing good techniques, obviously there are times when they do things for camera and rating sake, as with any show. But, its not sensational, you could actually learn something from this show and apply it in a real survival situation. I like learning things like building basic shelter, tracking animals (seeing signs of animal), water resources, etc from these guys.

This is a fabulous way to watch two completely different people with two different strategies get along, compromise and make it work in high stress times. They are fabulous examples of how to stay calm, communicate and think it through before acting. It actually adds some comedy because they get annoyed with each other. They respect each other, and their differences bring a lot of well rounded value to this show!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great DVD, Great Program! October 18, 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I am a big fan of Les Stroud and Bear Grylls, I've watched their material over and over, but there is something special about Dual Survival. Almost everyday I will watch something from these DVDs. Man vs. Wild presents techniques for basic survival as well as advanced and extreme methods, Les Stroud wove the drama of his one-man production into his edu-tainment, but in Dual Survival a lot of quality, pragmatic survival techniques are presented from two distinct and sometimes opposing perspectives. It creates a nice tension arc in the structure of the show. Along with learning how to survive, another aspect of the genre I enjoy is the outdoor and wildlife photography. Les Stroud hit the nicest notes in his shows in regards to this, including his oft-repeated hunting disclaimer that, he respected natural life and it wasn't to be taken lightly; the hosts of Dual Survival, particuarly Cody Lundin, also admirably emphasize conservation of natural resources. All of the various hosts are great at what they do and knowledgeable, but I would point out that Cody and Dave are American archetypes, and that is probably why I love their show the most. I miss the photography emphasis that LS had, but DS isn't shabby in this regard, it just doesn't seem to be a major concern of the editors. If I had to fault the show, I would say they could improve with better music. Hopefully subsequent seasons will have DVD releases (please!) as I do not use streaming formats.

Thanks to the producers, cast and crew for creating a great show that I would choose over 99% of the rest of the programming out there.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun Show March 14, 2012
By Satch
There are three reasons to watch a reality-survival show on TV: knowledge, scenery, and entertainment. This show does well on all three points.

Both of the hosts pretty well know what they're doing, and are good at explaining what they're doing for the most part. Even if you've read every manual there is, you might learn something new from these guys. It's also helpful to visually see the process and results of the things you've read about. Unless you're a wilderness expert already, and who really is, you'll probably learn something.

The site locations are creatively varied. The cinematography is also generally good, so you can get a fair sense of what these environments are like. Dual Survival is a travel show, as much as it's a survival show.

Where general entertainment value is concerned, the co-hosts really are what distinguishes this show from all of the others. The "odd couple" theme (throwing a hippy and an army sniper together) is kitchy and formulaic, but it happens to work in this case. Both guys are laid-back and uptight in slightly different ways, and they have enough in common to generally get along. Watching feels like hanging out with friends on a jacked-up camping trip, and that's the best possible outcome for a TV show, whether it's a sitcom or a reality show.

You'll like this thing, as they say, if this is the sort of thing you like.
