I'm always surprised at the negativity to Bear Gryllis on this site. He is prior Brit Special Forces, so I wouldn't classify what he does as "stupid" as much as I would say that some of the more physical things are beyond the ordinary human's capabilities. Nonetheless, I find his show to be entertaining and informative. Not to mention, that other shows like Man, Women Wild or Dual Survivor copy set-ups and tactics from BG.
No, I probably wouldn't try some of it myself, but good to know what's possible in different scenarios.
Yes, he has a film crew, so what? He's doing more extreme activities that couldn't be easily repeated.
Guilty, to watching just about any outdoors show or movie featuring survivalist tactics at least one.
As a side note, in re MWW, I have a hard time listening to the chick constantly whining or complaining in that annoying little voice and some trivia, how many folks are aware that Mike Hawke got his television debut on Paris Hilton's reality show The Simple Life, Season 4?
