New wilderness survival series coming up. - 06/09/13 06:33 PM

I have always liked movies and shws of people put in an environment where they have to survive.

Almost all are scripted and overproduced, like Man vs Wild.

One recently had a man placed on an island by himself to survive for 60 days. With nothing but a few cameras with which he filmed himself.

He arrived on the island with nothing. No knives, matches or clothes.

Well, Discoverey is going to do this with couples now. They will have a film crew though.

Why go to all that expense and trouble to film in some out of the way place...just send them down to my part of the country where to survive is a daily event....for everyone..

or for something completely different, drop the couple in a huge city with nothing, no knives, matches or clothes...no help from any social groups...see how long it takes them to figure out dumpster diving, begging...stealing ...mugging...for their survival

You know, sounds interesting.

From the promotions I've seen aired about this show, the emphasis is not on the survival techniques, but on the nudity.

Also, the first show states that the first couple is naked the whole episode because their location gives no resources to make any clothes. That seems a bit off, as they should be able to weave grasses or something.

The man could skin the woman and have clothes and meat and peace and quiet.

(or vice versa)

Well it's on discovery channel. These are the same people who blur Keri Byron's nipples when she has a wetsuit on when Myth Busters do a shark episode. They want her for the eye candy, but don't want you to rot your teeth.

So the show will be a constant blurred image. eek
