I'm glad they're airing this again I missed it when it was on last week.I did see the one about the family that is faced with the pandemic "apocolypse" and I was highly dissappointed,as they were going through the dessert and the narrator was explaining about dehydration and how if they didn't take nasty water from radiators and the such and purify it, they'd die, when they're surrounded by cactus of every type and it never once mentioned that you CAN LIVE off cactus water...that is your one best bet if you find yourself thirsty and walking through a dessert. I thought it was a little dumb they didn't mention that. However, it did prompt me to learn how to grow and cultivate penecillin after the man died from a simple cut getting infected, and it's good to know how to create medicines you may not be able to access during and after a catastrophe. Now at least I know I won't die from a scratch or cut...lol.
