I think Dual Survival is about the best program of it's type. I am pretty critical of the programs like Bear Grylls jumping into a ravine because it would be "faster" than climbing down. Idiot. I have never seen Dave and Cody do anything that I wouldn't do myself. They keep it reasonable. Good program. And I like the chemistry between Dave (Ex Gi, pathfinder school) and Cody (hippie, desert survivalist) Their different survival experience as well as their different world views makes this a good mix."The constitution does not guarantee our safety, only our liberty!"

I watch all of these shows, and try to learn from each. If I had to rank them I would probably put Les Stroud, Survivorman, first. He does everything himself with a minimal amount of tools, and films everything by himself.
Dual Survival is great. I love the way they work together, and bicker like an old married couple, but at the end of the day they make it through. Also a great example of how their is more than one way to skin a cat. When one thing doesn't work, keep trying.
Bear Grylls I take with a grain of salt. He gives some good info but he has somebody filming the whole thing. If it was so hard to get up there, how did the guy with the camera get there before you! He is also a world class athlete. I would put any special forces, military trained individual in that category. They are in exceptional physical shape. They could probably stand on their ear if they had to.
I would like to see Survivorman II - Double XL Portly. Let's see a survival show that teaches us old fat people how to survive. I am a long way past faster than a speeding locomotive, or leaping tall buildings in a single bound. Anybody else out there have any ideas?
