  1. All credits goes to the local people, they are the one who are behind his every move, they are his backbone and guide. In real life there is no teacher for survival.

  2. The Sierra Nevada has Les “lost” while a search party hunts for him. He has a backpack, a tent, a sleeping bag and his guitar. While in the Rockies he had two horses, one for him and one for his camera equipment, a makeshift bedroll, canvas to make a shelter, and a fishing rod. Is this survival or a camping trip?

    Another episode has Les stranded in the jungle of Papua, New Guinea. Most of the time he complains about his surroundings and the claustrophobia brought on by the jungle. But as soon as Les steps out of the wet rainforest and into the open he whines about the sun making him sweat. He brought bananas, nuts, candy and other treats with him this time. He reminds us for the 100th time how difficult it is for him to film his adventures, and how he could die if he breaks an ankle or gets bitten by a poisonous spider.

    Nothing thrilling about the Outback either, except he didn’t complain as much about having to shuffle his camera equipment around. Splitting one match into two isn’t new and exciting, nor is watching him filter water through sand and pluck edible bugs from the trees.

    Les tries to catch a pig, but fails. Les tries to snare a rat, but fails. He couldn’t even catch one bird out of a flock of 12 or more. He talks constantly about having diarrhea and vomiting from drinking bad water. He couldn’t cross a stream because he was afraid he’d fall. Then came the bemoaning about the rash and jungle fungus on his feet. He whined about the ants, the ticks, the spiders, the mosquitoes, the rain and the weather, and even the bad dreams brought on my hunger. Good grief.

    There are only six episodes on this DVD, but that’s probably just as well. I couldn’t stand much more of his suffering and bemoaning.

    The first two seasons were first rate. This third is lacking in luster and thrills. The Survivorman series is getting stale and repetitive. Les doesn’t appear to be enjoying himself anymore.

    I hope Les has something new up his sleeve. I love this guy. I’d hate for him to just disappear from the screen or, God forbid, to keep doing what he’s doing, which is complaining all the time. Les is a fantastic photographer and survivalist, but it’s time for a change.

  3. This season has gotten pretty weak. He brought a tent and a sleeping back on one “survival” trek. If you’re looking for hardcore ideas and understanding about surviving in the wild Survivor man, and I say this with a heavy heart because the first seasons were great, is no longer for you.

    wasn’t as many episodes as i would like. the katrina bonus feature was educational and everything but people watch survivorman for the wilderly action. coincidently, i worked with a guy named Rob Wilson that had the same demeanor as the guest on the show. sad to hear that this is his last season. can’t wait to get the DVD (off the grid) where he takes out his family. buddies said it was awesome.
