I always thought it was kind of fishy that the man v wild dude had a full camera crew with him. i had watched Survivorman before i had ever even heard of Bear Grylls. At least Survivorman is a legit survival expert and not some hack with a full fucking camera crew and room-service. regardless of if its "better tv". seeing some of the incredible shots survivorman is able to get is that much more impressive as he has to set those cameras up, walk away a long distance and then come back and get the camera, which is that much more ridiculously hard. i agreed with Patrice when they originally talked about this shit and im happy that he was proven right.
