Plenty of people know of Man Vs. Wild; I get the impression that this show is a bit less popular. Is it because of the title that isn't quite as cool? Maybe. Anyway, if you want to get a miniscule amount of experience with braving the wild without leaving your computer chair (like me) then you should give this a shot. If you want to go do the real thing, better learn to drink your own piss.
Les Stroud does things a bit different than Bear Grylls; Les does all the camera work himself and is alone while Bear has a cameraman. I'm not sure whether Les is more of a badass or is just doing things more inefficiently. Either way, I don't see much point in debating over which one of them is better, so I would recommend both of their shows to anyone interested in survival.
I've taken up a sort of fascination with survival and preparedness lately; trying to make my own bug-out-bag and stocking essentials. Such things could come in handy in a natural disaster type scenario, zombies, or other things.
The future belongs to those who prepare for it! And once again, you can watch this show through instant stream on Netflix.
That's all for now.
