""What one man can do, another man can do." A lot of emphasis on mental pre-preparation and historical study and how it can come in handy when you are actually stranded. In other words, learn all you can about the topic of survival before you are thrust into the situation."
"Why you should always carry a 'mini kit' or EDC in your pocket, ALWAYS. Why you should take care of your teeth, ALWAYS. Stranded on an island. Saw a hilarious commercial spoof on this where the last package he saved not to open had a GPS, Sat phone, fishing rod, water purifier, and some planting seeds for growing food."
"TEOTWAWKI in small town USA over an extended period. There are some good lessons to learn about prepping here if you take notes on both what they have that worked and what they ended up running out of and really needed."
"Okay, have to have at least one zombie type in the list. Long term survival issues explored while surrounded by 'hostiles'. More realistically, you can probably replace 'zombie' with 'urban gangs' and end up with an even more dangerous but more realistic version of an economic meltdown instead of zombies. Nice show for survival topics to think about though."
"Okay, at least one 'survival' type show has to be in here too. This gives you a 'twofer'. You get to see two different survival philosophy approaches to the same problems. Entertaining as well. Les Stroud is a close second though in his last series where he lives with different indigenous peoples in remote areas to learn from them."
