        The survival techniques demonstrated are fascinating. The variety of locations provides a broad spectrum. Bought this on sale and was worth that price.

          I really love the locations and the filming was great. Loaded with great adventure scenes. Bear Grylls really knows what he is talking about and is a true survivor. Bear leaves you hanging on the edge of your seat!

          I bought this set to show to 6th graders but was embarassed by nudity ( back view) on the Australia and Ecuador adventures. I did some previewing but assumed these videos would be OK since they are on T.V. So I am sticking with the cold places because he keeps his clothes on ! Also, they were repulsed by the scene of him urinating in his canteen and then drinking it !

              I love Man vs. Wild!! Such a great show, Discovery Channel Store had the best price for season one. As with most season one releases for dvd, the packaging is huge and has four dvd's with only a few episodes. The size of season one dvd set is larger than seasons two, three, and four combined. Overall a wonderful set to add to any collection.

                      I bought all the seasons for Man vs. Wild. I actually bought them for my Dad as a gift, because he always watches the shows on TV but gets upset when he misses episodes. So when I bought him all four seasons he was so ecstatic. We enjoy watching Man vs. Wild together as a family, everything that Bear does is amazing and gives you a world of new information. He also teaches you how to survive if you get lost in some of the worlds craziest places. I couldn't be more happy with what i purchased.

                        Bear started a very special idea here: an actual (as opposed to the (fake) "reality") show about the outdoors, survival, and the dangers they carry. A true master of his craft, Bear demonstrates how hard it is to survive in freezing environment, in the desert heat, and anywhere in between. Fantastic show with classic episodes - already from Season 1.

                                        I gave this season to my boyfriend for Christmas because he loves the show. He told me he watched the entire season in a week. He loved it.

                                            I love this show. Bear Grylls does a fantastic job of teaching tons of realistic survive tips for any situation imaginable while still being extremely entertaining. As i'm watching an episode, i constantly wonder what crazy situation Bear is going to be put into next. I would recommend this series to anyone who is a survival enthusiast or just enjoys nature. Very Entertaining and quite addicting.
