    It's not on the episode guide yet but it aired on Friday (in the US) So I thought I'd put this up if anyone wanted to discuss it.

    Over all I thought it was a decent, but pretty standard, Man vs. Wild episode. It was cool to see him come across the huge elephant herd. Although any survivor expert will tell you never, NEVER, eat the raw meat of a dead fly covered animal you just happen to find. Cook it! He king of deserved the stomach bug after doing something that basicly wrong.

    I'm still disappointed that he does not admit to using ropes for climbs and is still pretending to trek large distances without ever clarifying that fact.

    Typical Man VS Wild episode though. I was laughing very hard at the scripted diarrhea scene.

    Where can I find information that says that he used ropes for the climbs? Thanks in advance!

    Here is a collection of misinformation and stunts and evidence ect.

    Here is PR at work for bear, explaining the ropes and saftey gear ect. These vids are actually done by Ed fans, so no commenting is allowed unless you are fans.

    There are also many exposes and inteviews and confessions scattered about admitting what the show is and what it is not. This is acting in the "wild" with scripts and crews who know what they will be doing and filming ahead of time. Its about alot of camera tricks and editing and stunts.
