TV Shows - Survivorman

Survivorman is a Canadian-produced documentary/adventure program, airing in Canada on the Outdoor Life Network and internationally on the Discovery Channel. The show features survival expert and filmmaker Les Stroud, who uses his skills to survive seven days alone in remote locations with little to no food, water or equipment. With no camera crew, Stroud does all of his own filming, including camera setup and teardown, which Stroud says takes about two-thirds of his time and makes survival more challenging. Three seasons were produced from 2005 through 2008 for a total of 23 episodes. Stroud stopped making Survivorman after the third season due to what he described as the significant physical toll of filming each episode.

1 @jimdcarter: Since you've never watched the show, you're not in a very good position to dish on it. I won't dispute your point that reality TV shows in general have either gone BTF or are pretty close. I hardly watch any reality TV, so I'm not in a good position to argue with that point, and since I don't care much for reality TV in general, I'm not very inclined to argue with that point, anyway. But I have seen all the episodes of Survivorman, and where this show is concerned I'll dig my heels in and say that you're totally wrong. It kept its premise very simple: There is a situation and we see how the host deals with it. The basic premises of most other reality shows, however, rely on some kind of gimmick or con, which IMO places them on shaky ground from the start. (For that reason, the original Apprentice is one of the very few reality shows I've actually liked.) Anyway, Survivorman kept it simple, didn't stray from its premise, and also closed up shop before it had a chance to bone. Yes, Les Stroud's reason for quitting was the extreme physical demands of doing the show, but by a happy coincidence the timing also ensured the show would never bone. Still rocks in reruns!! -- Submitted By: (Mythigator) on May 29, 2013, 7:27 am - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 Never watched it, never will. All reality shows are starting to bone. ENOUGH ALREADY! Let's have somw real TV for a change, like Breaking Bad or Mad Men. -- Submitted By: (jimdcarter) on May 27, 2013, 11:42 pm - (-1 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Les is the real thing. Save yourself some time and skip the nonsense with "Man vs. Wild" -- which is more like Jackass in the outdoors than anything else. You won't see Les taking stupid chances, and there's a reason for that. You won't last long in a survival situation if you do. -- Submitted By: (HistoryProf) on October 3, 2010, 6:33 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
