Man vs. Wild- Urban Survivor Special (Feb. 3rd on Discovery)
« on: February 03, 2010, 10:33:24 PM »
 :mellow: Heey, has anyone else but me watched    Man vs. Wild, the Urban Survivor episode tonight? I'm not a huge Bear Grylls fan, but boy that one episode was really cool. Two things it reminded me of is urbex and parkour, they threw Grylls into an abandon industrial area and (As in any Man Vs. Wild) Bear used the same wilderness survival techniques he share but this time to stay alive in a city, kinda post disaster type setting.  ^_^
Huzzah!!

Was it anything like "the Colony" , discovery ran a mini series last year about a group of people trying to survive in a post-nuke type future, they shut down a few city blocks and set up a monster garage style project per episode thing. i think its still online to watch. ...it is

The colony was such a good show, yeah you could compare it for sure. It was pretty much Bear being Bear, rumaging through an old warehouse, it was pretty cool i guess.

It wasn't really like that and the buildings were really run down where he was. The colony was alright I watched 90%of it when it was on tv.. The only thing i didn't like about the colony is hoow they survived.. like some random joe can build a solar panel that moves with the direction of the sun.. yeah its cool, but I wish it was more like some kinda urban survivor man special or something, not a genius convention..

 Whats for breakfast? Rats, ramen, and some nukacola.. heh.

Loved his adventurous show Man vs Wild and the new one Urban Survivor.
He actually show us how to survive in those extremely tough conditions.

True but hes no Les Stroud aka Survivorman. Stroud films his own material and is out there alone, unlike Bear who has a crew with him and many times stays in a hotel for the night if at all possible.
