I'd like to "thank" everyone who thought it necessary to voice their "Concerns" about the validity of the various stunts in this show. Surely it is obvious that this man was never going to risk his life climbing down a mountain or waterfall without a harness just for a TV show.
This show is and always was intended to be a bit of a dramatised 'How To' for survival in some of the worlds most inhospitable places. It was never supposed to be another in the string of reality shows where video crews just film what's going on. All these pathetic complaints have achieved is to ruin a perfectly interesting show for those who watched it for what it is.
As for the discovery channel, I am disappointed that you have bowed to this kind of nit-picking.
Having said this I still look forward to the next series to see what Bear has in store for us. Great show, well done!
