    I loved this show! And it's gone, I tell you, GONE!! [​IMG]

    I sent a comment to the Discovery Channel to moan in pain. They replied something like "Oh."

    Survivorman was much better than Man vs Wild. Les Stroud did everything on his own and really knows what he is doing, Bear Grylls is more of an exhibitionist and must of the stuff he does is for shock value.

    Bear Grylss is definitely [​IMG] and in fact, there's the one show where he jumps into a frozen hole in the ice, gets back out of the water, strips down naked, and builds a fire. I first saw that episode when I was home alone. I stopped mid-step and stood like that, it was like time stood still.... That was with the 'parts' blurred. When the episode comes on when my DH is home, I have to feign disinterest while peeking every once in a while.

    What I really like about Survivorman is that he's more like me and my DH. We go camping a lot, real camping. And he gets in situations we might get into. I learn a lot from him.

    Bear has WAY more energy than a normal human, and a camera crew, so that part throws me. I regard him as more [​IMG]

    Bear is a performer and very reckless. Les is a teacher and generally a smarter guy.

    Did anyone catch his show about making an off the grid house? It wasn't bad.

    The last ones I saw were when he simulates going down in a light aircraft and has a broken arm. I admire that he abandoned the broken arm idea after a few days saying he would not have been able to survive with the broken arm. That was amazing. And I like that he actually starves.

    Quote:They could keep Survivorman, Man vs. Wild, and Dirty Jobs, and I guess the fishermen things, but Pitchmen????? Who on earth want s to watch a show like that???? Get rid of that and bring back Survivorman!

    I hope more people will complain to them.

    Bear Grylls is a hack compared to Les Stroud. Les doesn't spend a day filming with a bunch of cameramen and safety guys then go stay at the local Hilton at night. Watching Bear Grylls is like watching that show Fear Factor he performs a couple of dangerous stunts then eats something disgusting.

    Les is the real deal. He and his wife lived off grid just after they got married and is working on doing it again with his family. That guy is the real deal.

    My 16 year old and I have this argument all the time which is just more proof that I must be right. [​IMG]
