Editorial Reviews

Dropping into a viper pit in Panama's Camino Reale...navigating his way out of a crevasse of one of the world's largest glaciers...battling extreme conditions in frozen Siberia...it's all in a day's work for adventurer Bear Grylls. A former British Special Forces soldier, Bear shares ingenious and often shocking techniques for surviving in some of the world's most treacherous environments in each unforgettable episode of Man vs. Wild. Episodes: Sahara: Bear Grylls parachutes into the hottest place on Earth and shows you how your own urine and eating the feared camel spider can stave off dehydration and heat-stroke. Desert Survivor: A camel train takes Bear to the deadly desolation of the salt pans where there's no food and no water but plenty of mirages to trick the mind. Panama: Bear parachutes into croc- and shark-infested water to tackle the stinking tangle of the mangroves and drops from a vine into the lethal Viper Pits on the historic Camino Reale. Jungle: Bear encounters the Emberra Indians, who teach him some of their legendary survival techniques. And in a country where there's a high risk of kidnapping, how can you conceal yourself and dodge your trackers? Patagonia: In the Southern Patagonian Ice Field - one of the largest expanses of ice in the world - Bear negotiates his way out of a crevasse and spends the night in a snow hole. Andes Adventure: Bear spends the night sleeping under a rock in freezing conditions, skins a hare, climbs a 100-foot cliff, meets a gaucho and tracks pumas to find a recent kill. Bear Eats: Bear puts his taste buds to the ultimate test as he takes us to nature's kitchen: See him drink the liquid from a camel's stomach and eat elephant droppings, live frogs, 3-inch-long beetles and raw goat's testicles...if you dare. Siberia: Bear journeys toward the Taiga forest, where it's thought that a quarter of the people who enter it never find their way out. On the way, he uses a deer skin he finds to sled down a series of treacherous inclines. Land of Ice: In the Sanyan Mountains in Siberia, Bear meets the Tuvans, yak herders descended from Genghis Khan who have lived there for 20,000 years, and learns some survival techniques from these cold-climate experts. Namibia: Fighting dehydration, Bear meets the masters of desert survival, the San Bushmen, who reveal their methods for finding water in barren locales and teach Bear to hunt porcupine. Zambia: Flash floods of the Zambezi River and the 12-foot waves and vicious currents of the Batoka gorge regularly claim the lives of canoeists and rafters. Bear demonstrates how to survive some of the world's biggest rapids. Jungle Swamp: Bear goes into the Pacific Ring of Fire as he takes on a week of challenges in an area devastated by the 2004 tsunami. He shows how to stay alive by making a simple shelter and scavenging whatever he can from the tiny island. Castaway: In the jungle, Bear sleeps in a tree to stay safe during tropical storms, sharing his bed with a variety of horrible insects. Then he must use all his survival skills and ingenuity to get through waterfalls, sheer cliffs and deadly jungle.

Apparently the survival experts have spoken and MAN VS WILD = SUPERMEGA FAKE. That's alright with me; I am an idiot who enjoys "dumbed down" productions such as Man vs. Wild moreso than I enjoy watching Survivorman, a show in which the adventurer (i.e. Les) sits around a campfire for 7 days while he plays his harmonica and does nothing else. Survivor experts are we???...yeah...ok. I guess Surviorman is one who brings the excitement of hiking to the screen-he walks to a spot, camps in a spot and does not move.

Bear Grylls (or should I say the infamous Ed...) may camp in "hotels," he may eat pieces of steak instead of badgers, he may jump through sheets of ice into a secretly hidden hot-tub beneath the surface of a "frozen lake," he may even use "smoke machines" to simulate the gaseous, boiling properties of lava, but he nevertheless is more of a survival expert than you and me. Any man or woman who goes into nature and puts his/herself into situations in which he/she shows inexperienced outdoorsman how to escape quicksand, animal threats, etc. has my respect. I suppose the beetle grubs he eats are fake as well.... After using these techniques he displayed for creating compasses, building camps, and even learning of the different types of insects and plants that are edible in regions I myself have visited (i.e. the Moab desert and the Badlands), there is no doubt in my mind that the things he teaches are relevant and useful. While he may not camp through the entire night or eat every single disgusting insect/animal upon which he appears to dine, he nevertheless shows people what to do in moments of emergency.

I have faith in Bear/Ed, his camera crew, and the survival experts with whom he explores. While I do not doubt that some things are staged (i.e.

In defense of Bear Grylls and the show he hosted for 6 seasons I would like to say that I like this show very much and it has a considerable amount of valuable survival knowledge imparted to the viewer. It is very adventurous, exciting and you get to see different and exotic places around the world. Although a certain amount of what happens is planned before shooting Bear does demonstrate lots of valuable survival techniques and discusses many helpful tricks, tips and warnings about the place he is in whether it`s the jungle, desert, woodland or snow covered arctic. There is a real life story of a boy who got lost for days and would have died before help arrived but he survived because of some survival tips he learned from Bear Grylls on the show before he got into this situation. I understand that some things where added and done for show and entertainment because ratings are the first priority. But despite this, this show is definitely worth watching and owning and if you don`t know anything about survival you will definitely be better off having watched it and learned from it. I think most people know that climbing a mountain or repelling down a 200-300 foot cliff is not safe or possible for most people among other things. If you want more realistic and reality based survival shows check out Dual Survival seasons 1 and 2 with Cody Lundin and Dave Canterberry and Man Woman Wild with Mykel Hawk and his wife.

Okay, I'm gonna say it. I like the way Bear presents these challenges. Whether it's eating something truly disgusting or finding shelter, he is as good as it gets when the survival of hope is the issue. I like they way the camera and production crews are included in the handling of each season's problems. Almost ALL of the other so-called reality shows try to make it seem as if the hosts are omniscient; not these guys ...sammy

Despite all of the controversy surrounding the show, I think season 2 is great. Note that if you get it through the Discovery Store, like I did, its been available since August. In any event, if you take the show for what it is and not for absolute authenticity, then you will probably like it as much as I did. If you are dead set on Bear spending the night in every camp he builds or every encounter being total coincidence and never staged, then maybe this isn't for you. I personally would rather see a staged event to demonstrate techniques rather than an uneventful walk through the forest! For the amazing landscapes the show offers, the fast paced adventure and seeing Bear eat snakes, worms, spiders and all the rest, it will always be worth it to me.

On a side note, I thought season one was slightly better (the first released set, not the edited set that comes with 2 discs in the same package!) based on more varying places all over the world, and more consistent format. Still tho, this is a great buy and I hope we will see more of Bear Grylls.

I have three young sons who love the outdoors. We watch a new episode or more as a family every weekend! Never gets olds. Bear eats some things that you would never consider eating, but it sure makes getting the kids to eat their dinners a lot easier.

Bear is pretty amazing and I love the Man vs Wild seasons. This was the digital copy and I prefer to order things like this now instead of getting hard copies as I am running out of room to put movies and dvd's in our house now. I think digital copies are the wave of the future!
