In special edition 'Fan Vs Wild', Bear leads two lucky fans on a 48-hour survival mission in the frozen Purcell mountains of Canada to test their nerves, their reflexes, and their stomachs. Bear heads into the Canadian Rockies and then the Mojave Desert to face the elements at their worst and test what they really do to the body. In Canada Bear
is buried alive in an avalanche to test how long can he survive, swims 30 feet under an ice pack, and weathers a blizzard in a snow cave. But even the best laid plans can go awry. Bear is airlifted to the hospital when a glissade test goes horribly wrong. Once he's healed, Bear heads to the other extreme: the Mojave Desert. There he finds out what it's like to be caught up in 48,000 gallons of flash flood and then engulfed in a 90 mph sandstorm. But it's not all a chore for Bear. He makes a personal record: a HALO jump from 30,000 feet, so high he can see the crvature of the Earth!

I watched the first disc rather quickly (it's only 4 episodes) and enjoyed it very much. Next was disc 2 which starts off with the "Canadian Rockies" episode where the crew uses machines to create situations for Bear so that he can demonstrate things you need to do to survive if you were in a similar predicament. The next episode is "Shooting Survival" basically a behind the scenes, followed by "Fan vs. Wild" and finally "Behind the Wild" (another behind the scenes). So if you are looking for classic Man vs. Wild episodes then you will only get about 3 episodes of that (all on the first disc) and the second disc actually contains no traditional Man vs. Wild type episodes.
Just an fyi on how many episodes each season has.
Season 1 - 15 Episodes
Season 2 - 13 Episodes
Season 3 - 10 Episodes
Season 4 - 11 Episodes
Season 5 - 8 Episodes
But he has learned so much that if I ever got lost I would want him with me.
