    • Excellent Show

      Man vs. Wild has few scenes that are staged and fake, but it's way too obvious that the majority of it is very real. Either way, who gives a shit? This show is very entertaining and highly educational. Bear Grylls is unbelievably knowledgable about anything that has to do with nature and survival, from wildlife and weather to building and improvisation. The show is also very exciting. Bear places himself in many near-death situations that can leave you on the edge of your seat. And probably the highlight of every episode is when Bear eats some of the most revolting (but seemingly beneficial) things you can imagine, from insects to fluid from animal dung O_O Everything about MvW is entertaining and fun to watch and it was one of my highlight shows during the golden days of Discovery Channel, when the channel was actually educational instead of showing random crap like they do today.moreless

      An entire episode was shot in Australia, in a caravan park .... yes ..... the whole park was booked, filled with crew and Mr Grylls of course. All the 'food' placements was marked with markers, routes were plotted, etc.

      Yes, he does the stunts himself.

      If he makes a mistake or the scene is not done correctly the 'action part' was re-shot !!!!

      Regular breaks were taken during the shooting and after a days 'work' they retire to their caravans.



      and that's 'how it's made'

    • Pretty Pointless Show!

      5.0
      This or is not much good. I don't count this show as realty show. but its interesting some time I enjoy watching this. we can watch this and but we have try and perfectly train most of the things that bear do. if bear really wanna teach how to survive it's better to start training program. this show is just for cheap publicity.
