    • Great show, but...

      Really great show and Im hooked on it, but it really be great if you guys could get a survivor expert who can comment on the show and give survival tips in case you find yourself in the same situation as one of the survivors on the show.
    • "Reallyalmostdiddie"

      It is great that someone in TV land decided to show the graces and mercies bestowed upon us humans by the ALMIGHTY! I am one still here to testify that it is a BLESSING to still be alive!..............
    • A clever title goes here!

      I start my day with this show. LOVE IT, makes appreciate that I am alive
    • I Shouldn't Be Alive - Best Show ever!

      This is one of the best Documentary series ever! If you want thriller, this is the show for you. In every seconds, I'm like so exited to know what's gonna happen next! Will they survive or not?

      What would I do if I have to face a situation like this? - I've always thought of it. It's not just a show. It's something more than that. You can learn the survival skills. Plus, you get to experience different survival stories through your ears and eyes.

      All in all, this is a great show. The acting is believable and natural. I don't know how they find the actors. But the are the real people who made this show a Hit! "All the good things come to an end"

      I can't believe this show is canceled. I think every great show gets canceled every time. This is a fact. But, I really don't want it to end like this. Please, bring it back --- Discovery!! I'm urging you!moreless
    • Real-life survivors talk about their most horrible and atrocious experiences that they ever had in graphic detail.

      Real-life survivors talk about their most horrible and atrocious experiences that they ever had in graphic detail.

      Listing to these experiences and what these people went through to stay alive make you feel better and lucky that you are at home watching them retell their stories with horrific detail. So much detail that I even amazed that these people can even retail what had happen to them in these experiences.

      Now, I only saw one episode and it did get my attention, but the down side to the story was it was one that I heard all ready before, so I knew what was going to happen to the people. That brings up another point that I don’t like about this series, is the fact that the survivors themselves are retelling the story via their own words. While this might be interesting to some people, but I don’t like it because you already know that this person is already survived this experience, so the mystery of if this person survived or not is solved. Because if they didn’t survived the experience then they won’t be around talking about what had happen to them.

      Now, what would be a good idea for this series is to have a third person do the narration and at the end of the story tell who survived the ordeal and who didn’t. A mystery that will leave hook until the end of the episode.moreless
