Just watched the first two episodes last night. They said somewhere along the way that the minimal film crew had to walk 40 minutes each way to get from their camp to where the naked people were. So at least the smell of their food cooking over the fire wasn't torturing those who had no food or water.
Episode 1 - The girl found the shirt in the river. She tore off strips to try to use as a fishing line (she had previously tried to form a piece of scrap metal into a hook). I wanted to smack the guy when the girl was talking about trying to catch a howler monkey, and he ("Mr Survivalist") warned her that they were VERY strong, and if they killed one, five or six members of its family would attack them as revenge. Okay, I'm a major city slicker, but that sure sounded dumb to me. Also - all we have is HIS story that his family dumped him off and that he grew up in foster homes. If he was that obnoxious as a child, maybe they couldn't handle him.
Episode 2 - Those two were sure a better team - and a lot smarter. Make shoes, forget about the loin cloths. But I was a little put off by the guy sitting next to the fire with the camera pointed out him, with his legs spread apart so his "blurred out bits" were flapping around for the whole world to (not) see. Okay, you're naked - but a little modesty would be courteous, since you're a married man hanging out naked with a woman who is not your wife.
I can't believe that I watch stuff like this, but I'll probably watch future episodes, too.
