I definitely recommend it to anyone who's interested in survival, or reality shows, since they have a good dose of both.
As for people thinking they are too good for this show, just don't watch it... not everyone is an expert and knows how to build a windmill from car
parts and a fence.
AMEN! If you don't like it, don't watch it. I don't know if it's scripted and I don't know how realistic it is, but for some of us, even if we
learn SOMETHING from the show, it's better than NOTHING!
Someone said earlier that it would be more interesting if there was at least one person with a military background, like a green beret, etc. I think
one of the main points of the show is that they're trying to portray a real survival scenario. How often do you think people would be lucky enough
to be stranded with a green beret? Probably not very often.
What I like about the show is that not everything these people attempt to do is successful--and that's reality! There's going to be a lot of
failures and very few successes if we're ever thrown into a situation like this.
Either way, the show is better than the majority of the other crap on TV and at least by being on the air, it may be reaching some people who never
realized what the world might be like post disaster.
