In reading the fine print, this set is made by amazon, not discovery channel. But....
If you don't mind not having menus and chapters, then this dvd set is fine.
It seems they just recorded it off TV. Video quality is pretty good, but the sound is off a bit.
Otherwise, its a good buy.

Recordable DVD-Rs used for this with standard lables printed on a laserjet printer.
Pretty crappy presentation with no menus and only 2 episodes per disc.
No extras, no documentation, barely readable artwork and $1 worth of DVD-Rs
I would recommend just TiVo-ing the series and save the $$.

Survivorman, as always, is GREAT!!! But the DVD is very poor. No menus, no directory, nothing...You have no idea where you are in the DVD, and they even placed the end of one episode in the same chapter as the beginning of another episode. My ONLY complaint is the DVD itself, not the contents!

Les Stroud has a great survival show. He goes into the wilderness, alone and with no camera crew, for seven days to film himself in a real survival situation. The information and survival skills that he shows is accurate, and entertaining. This is not a boring show where he just talks about what to do, he demonstrates it in a very entertaining fashion. Unlike "Man VS Wild", Les is real. He does not fake his show or give wrong information. I highly recomend this show to anyone who is trying to learn survival information. Or anyone who just wants to watch a good show.

I neglected to look at the reviews for this as I got it as part of a "deal." Had I read the reviews I would not have purchased.

The video: Well...it's fake letter-boxed. So you end up with black bars on all four sides if you plan on watching it on a wide screen display. As a result, the video only takes up roughly half the screen. And the video quality varies from episode to episode. A couple look pretty good, and others...not so good. They are all watchable, and probably about as good as you'd see them on standard cable. But you expect more from a DVD set.

The Audio: The audio isn't bad at all, really. It's 2.0 stereo, nothing fancy. One reviewer mentioned that the sound was out of synch. I hadn't noticed that yet.

The DVD: This looks like something you'd get from a NY city street vendor. There are no menus of any kind. And the second episode starts half way through a chapter, so you can't even chapter skip to it. As others have mentioned, it is a DVD-R. Says it right on the paper, inkjet-printed cheesey label. So the DVD quality is really below anything you'd expect from anyone aside from, as I said, a street urchin peddling DVDs they made from episodes they downloaded off the Internet. If you look at the back of the case, you'll see:

"Manufactured by CreateSpace, An Amazon.com Company"

Honestly, I'm debating returning these. I got them as a gift for someone who is a huge fan of the show and is convalescing from surgery. I'm embarrassed to give these to him, honestly.

I'm hoping the first season set is much better than these.

Buy the Survivorman Season 2 (2 disc set) with the picture of the host on the cover, NOT this 4 disc set. I'm not sure who makes this 4 disc set, but it seriously looks and views just like a bootleg. WTF, Amazon?
I don't know if this set is being created legally, but it's $40 compared with the REAL set at $15. There are no extra features or episode. If you look at the bottom of the description, it says something like "this dvd set is created on demand with DVD-R discs. Ummm, who is making this? Take this off the shelves, Amazon.

By the way, my opinion of the show (on the 2 disc set) is that it ROCKS! Original, funny, impressive techniques in layman's terms, lots of teaching and learning by experience and looks like a lot of fun! Not fake or contrived.

If you look on survivorman.ca it definately looks fake compared the the last one. You can tell because if you look at the bottom they're purple, plus two episodes per disc? The guy before me says there are no DVD menus, that tells me these arn't legit. Amazon said they are looking into them and will refund me the money for these.
