Les Stroud as SurvivorMan knows the reality of surviving in the woods. He has been actually living his backwoods survival life style over the years and although he emerges into the modern world in between, he understands what anyone lost in the wilderness is likely to face. That is the man you want to learn from. That too is why he spends time on his shows teaching those of us who romanticize about the surviving in the wilderness from the comfort of our cozy homes with hints, tricks, and tips that might one day make a real difference in real survival situations.
He is a showman, and he travels to exotic, out of the way places to ply his trade. But he also learns and integrates his new knowledge of each location into the show as he demonstrates each step of the way, how he, himself, is coping with the new environments and strives to survive. He does not hide the reality of what lack of food and water and the sheer psychological shock can do to any of us, even those who are strongminded and fit. Occasionally he will also carry with him survival items that are common and available for purchase to give us an on screen trial and review of how they perform but the impact simple tools or other items can have on someone when demoralized by simply struggling to survive. He also plans for each environment and utilizes items that might be commonly found by a survivor. His mastery of his field comes through as he shares some of the simple techniques he has learned, but seldom does he display the more difficult tasks that require years of practice to master. Showman or no, he keeps his audience in mind, and is always working to teach, entertain, and simply allow the watcher to experience that world as he does.
As you might have picked up, I am a fan of Les Stroud. But I know the likelihood of my being stranded is reasonably small. Disaster is always a theoretical threat until it comes to you though. I like being prepared for possible events however, and not only does Les Stroud take you into the wilderness but he also has solid and practical advice that you can use in any unforeseen emergency. If you become more than a passive participant in the show, thinking how to apply his wisdom in situations that you are likely to face can make your life and that of your family better if bad things do happen.
Worth getting both season 1 and season 2.
