Les Stroud's "Beyond Survival"

Well by the request of TOS'd and since SkinnyPup hasn't made it yet I thought I would make a thread about Les Stroud's New series Beyond Survival.

http://lesstroud.ca/beyondsurvival/

Since Survivor Man has basically shown everything it can Les came out with a new series which he goes around the world and spends a week with a tribe and see's how they have been surviving in the 21 century.

It's on Sunday's at 5pm on OLN with a repeat at 8pm I believe and the first episode was the Devil Dancers of Sri Lanka. It showed the tribe going hunting and they found a bee hive in a tree and they calmed the bee's down by just blowing on the hive and they were able to get the honey combs with out getting swarmed. And one part he has this chewing tobacco type plant which got him really high.

It's a really unique show if you see it on what it you won't be disappointed.

2nd best show on tv right now imo. Although Survivorman is better, It's still cool to see how humans basically existed in the last thousands of years. I found it interesting that the first thing the hunters did when they caught the porcupine was cook them up, dress the corpses, then start eating all the fat. And 2 times we saw them go after honey as if it were a drug.

nope It's only one tribe per show like survivor man. It's a new show so I'm sure hes still in the process of filming more. Tomorrows episode is THE SEA GYPSIES OF MALAYSIA.

The problem with REAL reality TV is that sometimes those things don't actually happen. If you want excitement and don't mind watching a phony, then you can watch some Bear Grylls he'll be hunting fake game, eating gross stuff, and drink his pee for your entertainment.

^ I already said I liked Les Stroud over Bear Grylls. It was just that during the episode they made those bows and I was looking forward to seeing them use it, I was just disappointed they never had any clips of catching animals. Still a great show and episode nonetheless.

Bear Grylls is the BIGGEST BS in town. this show is freaking fake as heck and I hate him.

I gave up watching after first eposide when it's sooo fake.

Quote:" Mark Weinhart was hired as a consultant to the show and said that it's mostly fake. He said that in an episode where Bear is supposed to be camping in the mountains and biting the heads off of snakes, he was actually spending nights in a hotel complete with jacuzzi and internet access. In another episode where Bear was supposed to be stranded on a deserted island, he was actually staying in a hotel in Hawaii. HA! "


Les on the other hand is awesome, i had a buddy on another forum emailing him many years ago, (before he got famous) and he actually responded with tips.

Well, him + the cameras might've thrown off the prey? It'd depend on how they hunt, trying to find episodes meow.
