Man vs. Wild: Season 4 DVD Review

Man vs. Wild: Season 4 DVD Review

Synopsis: Bear Grylls has served with the British Special Forces, climbed Everest and explored the Arctic. In this exciting series he shows us how to survive the toughest and most remote environments on the planet by putting himself in the position of a stranded tourist. He parachutes into rainforests and abseils into deserts, lakes and the highest, most inhospitable peaks in America. Using his specialist survival techniques to find his way out of these wildernesses, he climbs sheer cliffs, navigates white water and icy crevasses, encounters predators and forages for maggots, raw fish, alligator meat and live snakes as food.

Review: Discovery Channel has released the complete fourth season of their hit show Man vs. Wild exclusively on their website (see link above to buy).  The 3-disc set spans over 9 hours of insanity as Bear Grylls puts himself in the most dangerous points of nature to prove his survival skills.  

This show is crazy.  I had caught it casually before, but I'd never sat down and watched a lot of episodes sequentially.  Everything from Alaska to the jungles of Vietnam, Bear is a madman.  Its so interesting to watch him survive in the most unlikely of situations.  It was a nice break from the ridiculous drama-filled 'reality-tv' that is usually on the air.  This show actually gives you useful information along with extreme entertainment.

Bonus Features include: Deleted scenes and River Monsters episode: Piranha: In 1976 a packed coach crashed into the Amazon killing 39 people. When the bodies were pulled out, some had been so viciously mutilated by Piranhas they could only be identified by their clothes. Extreme angler Jeremy Wade investigates the Piranha.

Rating: 5 out of 5 Stars
