Has anyone ever watched it? I've not seen season 1, but I watched season 2 and the wife and I loved it. They've finished casting for season 3, but thats all the info I can find about season 3. It's been almost 2 years since season 2 was out. I like the show. They come up with some neat ideas and it's about as real as it's going to get besides the real thing.

I watched a few episodes when this first came out and I didn't really care for it, can't tell you exactly why but it just didn't sit well with me even though there were some good ideas and things going on.

 

Season 2 is supposedly a LOT better. I never saw season 1, but season 2 had more normal people in it as far as their background.

I thought this was going to be the show to watch, hands down. But as it went on I got the feeling that it was just too fake and put on to accurately depict what things would really be like in those situations. Other than that, I think it woke some perple up to what they might be facing if they want to survive those scenarios.

honestly, i think this show gives off some great ideas, but some lame stuff too.

i think it shows how it can be to have to go hungry. how to spread out your food supply to make it last as examples. i think it shows how well you need to really cover an area well to find use for the things you find. there are a lot of hints and ideas on this show if you watch it with the right mind set. IF.

That show was terrible. In a real TEOTWAWKI situation they'd all be dead. Lets face it the world is already filled with a-holes who want your stuff, imagine what happens when they really need it? No protection, sleeping on watch, letting people forage by themselves with no overwatch... It made me too angry to keep watching. To much focus on trying to restore things they were familiar with.. power for one and not really surviving. /rant mode over.

It was a perfect example of what the general public is going to do when TSHTF. Most don't have a game plan and even some that do will be too distraught to follow it. People will band together with friends and family and it will be just as diverse as the show.

In my opinion that show doesn't do anyone much good for learning how to truely survive a disaster. The subjects are provided with certain materials on location. They still have to make something out of it, but they are guided and manipulated.

 

That show really just illustrates group dynamics. But even this isn't a good example as the subjects know they aren't in a true survival situation. THe psychology isn't there to accurately monitor group dynamics in a disaster.

 

At the end of the day, you really haven't learned anything after watching.

If this is the one I think it is, I really disliked it. Making a 'spy in the sky' .... really? that's a concern in the immediate aftermath of TSHTF? They were safe ONLY because the MZBs played by rules. Too few people guarding too much real estate. An interesting mix of skills and the raw materials exactly matched the available skills. Fascinating. To my mind, all this proved was that depending on luck was a really, really lousy Plan A.

the one thing that really bothered me about this show was the "group" come on now, what is going to be the chances of your group having a dr. or nurse, an electrical engineer, master carpenter, solar power expert, spec.ops military guy, etc. !! what a load of crap! why not just jerk ten people off the street and drop them in that situation! now folks, THAT WOULD BE A SHOW WORTH WATCHING!!!!!

They did that with season 2...it was more of a reality show than anything. I liked season 1 because they had all those people. I know it's not realistic to find that kind of a group but we did learn from what they managed to put together. I gave us ideas to explore further like the ozone machine or the gasifier. Season 2 was just a soap opera :rolleyes:
