My kids and I spent a lot of time watching the first seasons Survivorman as they were growing up. This show as a lot better than most of the other stuff on the air back then, helping to re-enforce the concepts of self-confidence, being prepared, remaining calm in bad situations, and it was something we looked forward to each week. Its the show that made me a fan of the Discovery Channel (something that has waned as the quality of the programming has drifted).

Its hard to believe that was seven years ago. I remember being disappointed (and the disappointment of my kids) when we found out Les had been sick, and wasn't going to be doing these any longer (and yes there is more to that story than what there is time for here), and was very pleased when I found out about his return to the small screen.

I had worried, that with the passage of time, and the strain the series had placed on Les, that he'd have lost a step. And contrary to the title of this review, he has. He makes some choices in this season that were bad choices, but wouldn't have been so bad six or seven years ago. You can tell he's older now, and while he still pushes himself hard and pushes through, you see he has the young man mentality in an older man's body.

Its an impressive display of just how much will power and mental strength you can draw upon to push your body beyond what you think its limits are. But from a survival show standpoint, I'd rather see things being demonstrated that show the right way, rather than the risky desperation ways.

Hence the four stars, and not five.

I really appreciate how Les takes a more practical and realistic approach to survival than Bear Grylls who chooses to do stunts that would kill someone who really found themselves in a survival situation. Overall I really enjoy the entire series and thought the 10 Days was amazing. I hope Les keeps doing the series.

Survivorman Les Stroud is back and has taken it to the next level by spending 5 days showing you what not to do, then 5 days showing you how to get back to civilization.

Admittedly, he doesn't make any truly bad decisions for the first 5 days, but he does make the most common mistake made by people in each situation (ex. staying with the car in a mountain snowstorm.)

All in all it's up to his usual level of excellence.

To begin with, Les Stroud lives this type of lifestyle with his family. They grow food, harvest water, collect solar power and aren't connected to the grid. Secondly, Les has survived around the world in various environments. Not just survived but also taken on the extra burden of filming it in a way that is interesting and educational. Thus you know that he walks the walk and just doesn't talk a good game. I appreciate that and it lends credibility to what he's teaching.

I like many of the shows of this genra such as Dual Survival and Man, Woman wild. But Les Stroud takes it up by several notches. Again, he is alone. He films everything himself with the exception of the opening sequences. And he stays out for 7 days, and now 10 days...alone. He shows the good, bad and ugly of an actual survival situation. And he shows that an average guy can do it (as well as the average woman).

I don't know if there are any more Survivorman's planned, but I sure hope so. I own all the seasons and enjoy rewatching them as I can always pick up a useful tip everytime I do, or reinforce something I'm already familar with.

One of the best programs on T.V. and the best of the genra.

Bring your own camera and filming yourself surviving to find rescue, especially for 10 days... you can't do it better or more realistic than Les Stroud.

I watch Man Vs. Wild, Dual Survivor, and Man Woman Wild. The thing with that is having a camera crew following you around gives an added sense of security (because the camera person is more vulnerable to things out in the wild, so there are probably people looking out for them). Think about it, having all your focus on filming two people through a viewfinder, you're actually in more danger out there because you're not going to be aware of something coming towards you if you're doing your job - which is filming, and not surviving.

Not only that, but sometimes Les has to double back just to get the camera that filmed him doing the exit shot, lol.

He also doesn't catch, trap, or hunt successfully as much as any of the other people on the other shows. You also get a sense of how loneliness makes a BIG difference when you're out on your own. Watching Survivorman is basically giving you a sense of what it would really be like out there on your own.

Mad respect for Les, and am a big fan. I'd love to see him pair up with Cody from Dual Survivor and see how they'd do, with just them two filming each other and themselves.

What a great show, I like to see the situations that Les Stroud gets himself into. The show begins with a realistic modeled scenario in which he bases his actions and decisions on. The knowledge that Les Stroud has acquired over his career really shows because of his logical decisions and sheer ability of survivor skills. Les Stroud comes off as educational at times and that is one of the important points of the show. The show is not gimmicky and focuses on the very real serious matter of survival in the wilderness/bush. SO far the show has really kept my attention and is really entertaining, it is almost like watching the film, "Castaway" because of the sense of isolation that Les seems to endure every time he does a episode. Every episode has its challenges and hurdles that Les Stroud has to overcome, such as in the Norwegian episode, Les Stroud needs to find some way to start fire with no fire starter. It is small things and the attention to detail that is really holding my interest in these shows. If you enjoy a realistic approach to survival in the wilderness than you will probably like this show or episodes.
