Les Stroud delivers a perspective about humanity that you can't find anywhere else. He is able to relate to his fellow man, whether in his culture, or a culture in a remote land. These films are fascinating to watch, and as usual, Les compunctuates the films with his own music and wit. What film frontier will he explore next?

I enjoyed watching this series. Though in general I dislike these types of documentaries where some modern person dresses up in leaves and thinks he's suddenly a native, this was more tastefully done than others.

I like how the show presents the daily lives of people in another, rarely or never heard of, culture. He points out that the survival skills he's watching them use are not just something they do as a hobby or for enjoyment, but as the necessary means for supporting life. On the other hand, he sometimes notes that the younger generation isn't learning those same skills, so there must be more influence or encroachment from the outside world than is shown. I enjoy the show and look forward to watching more!

I enjoyed most of the episodes from "Beyond Survival". It's too bad that this series was not renewed by Discovery Channel. Les Stroud admits that he cannot do "Survivorman" on a regular basis, as it takes too much of a physical toll on him. This series would have been a longer-term show, if it the ratings had been better. Still, it's nice to have a few episodes to watch, and I highly recommend this show!

The concept is interesting but Les Stroud just comes across as a tad pretentious, like its up to him and him alone to nobly record the lives of primative, native cultures, and you can't help but think that he's taking himself a tad too seriously. Yeah, I get it, it's a good cause, and I took 'anthropology 101' in college too, so some of this material can be interesting, but the show just gets corny after awhile (maybe it's the important-sounding, at times self-righteous, narrative going along with the show.) In any case, these episodes all tend to become formulaic after awhile: Les meets some natives, goes hunting with them, learns a few things, then... break out the tribal pipe, or the ceremonial alcohol, or tobacco blown up the nose, or something that sends ol' Les into a trace so that he can go off to the spirit realms, eyes closed, wobbling back and forth. We actually get a kick out of how predictable these situations become, and how he invariably winds up drugged, sweating and disoriented in a hut.

This is the first episode in Les Stroud's new series. A fascinating look at how the aborigine people of Sir Lanka survive with a simple and primitive culture. There is a very cool scene where they gather honey from a bee hive. Cool stuff for survival fans. I'm biased though, I was a big fan of Survivorman.
