    Comments about this product:

    The I Should'nt Be Alive series is excellent. Every episode is good. With season 1 DVD you get 4 DVD's with 5 episodes on each DVD, for a total of 20 episodes. Totally worth the money. The only draw back is that after I gave discovery my email address I got spammed like never before. I have since black listed hundreds of email addresses and the spam seems to be subsiding a bit.

          the episode "Ice Cave Survivor" was one of the best survival stories I've ever heard, by far the best episode in the series. I was in suspense the entire time, because unlike most other episodes, the interview footage of one of the characters wasn't shown until the end, so I had no idea if he was going to make it or not.

            I just bought season 4 with birthday money that I have. It is so great! It has a lot of action to it. People who don't like it just don't know good T.V. I watch every show. They need to put more shows on. I hate it when they take it off. This is my favorite show. I missed some shows of season 2. They need to have it on dvd. I hope they never take it off the air. I am going to be mad if they do. I can't wait for the next season. You need to watch it. You will be hooked.

              I watch this show all the time. I would definitly give it to someone as a gift. It is really very entertaining, suspenseful, and so exciting. I am a person who loves a mystery and something that is on the edge of your seat guessing until the very end. It is great. It is not your same old totally boring reality T.V. series or cop show. It is unique and different. You should watch it. They don't have not nearly enough shows in the season. They need to put a lot lot more on. I bought all of the seasons on dvd. I am extremly disapointed though. I saw season 2 on T.V. and was so looking forward to buying it. I have looked all over the place for it but can't find it anywhere. Why show it on T.V. but not put it on dvd for people to buy? Everyone wants it on dvd!!! put it on dvd now!!! I love this! I won't stop watching it! Don't ever take it off T.V. or you will hear from me!!! It's my favorite show!!!

                I really enjoy watching this show. It is something I would definetly buy for someone as a gift. With the dvd set it is more convenient because I can watch it whenever I want too and catch the ones I missed on TV. It is really very entertaining. It is one of my favorites. You should never judge a book by it's cover. It's definetly five stars.

                    I use this DVD of "I Shouldn't be Alive" because I had to give up my TV and that was my very favorite program. I never missed it, so I bought a DVD of the episodes.

                    It is wonderful because these stories are true - they really happened. The people who were involved are being interviewed, as to their feelings at the time. The adventure, and rescue, is shown like a movie - so real, just spellbinding. I have never seen such a wonderful program on TV. You will have to watch it for yourself. I cannot say enough for it.

                                              Awesome show! Just FYI to other fans out there, the show has been moved to Animal Planet. Why the Discovery group decided to put in on this channel beyond me, but at least it is still available!
