So much for a "transparent show"

    I guess the show decided to go back to its original format and continue to create a works of fiction. This time allowing the disclaimer to absolve any sins. Its disappointing that they still refuse to mention that ropes are being used and that he is not actually stranded "on his own".

    The Sumatra episode had two climbing scenes where ropes could be seen, then in later "takes" when he was closer to the ground, they would script him "falling" without the rope, narrowly escaping a close call of course.

    IMO, after the last episode I saw, the show is more deceptive now more than ever.
