    Unfortunate. I liked his show a lot better than Bears.

    Mine will be better. All in due time. No commercials, no Discovery Channel Rescue Safety Team.

    You will see.

    I will miss Survivorman, but at the same time he did pretty much every climate known to man so not much merit in rehashing.

    I understand he and his family have recently built an off the grid home and I wish them well whatever they choose to do. It was a really good show while it lasted and better to stop than continue to the point where it loses value.

    He has been doing keynote speeches on his adventures, writing books and playing his music, guess the 3 seasons was enough for him to "get by" lucky bastard.

    I guess he covered just about every climate he could think of, would like to see more on how his living off the grid is going

    Bear still sucks and I refuse to watch him, good thing I have Survivorman on the TIVO

    He cracks me up with his pathetic attempts at catching fish or squirrels, or basically finding anything to eat except for a few pitiful leaves and stems. I especially liked his crooked little underwear spear-gun; don't know why he always selects such a crooked little spear shaft. He sets him self up to fail by selecting poor items to use for tools.

    Does seem to like grubs, crawdads are a"gimmee"
    Saw him catch a desert ground squirrel once in apiute deadfall. (with a whittled figure 4 trigger) (flatrat flambeau'!).
    Now snakes,.no snake is safe for miles...but he has never caught anythingwith scales or fins...
    hedid snare a rabbit in canada in the "downed aircraft show". Bear built an underwear slingshot on one shown last week,(british a"catapult")which was equally lame
    the fish hook out of a pop tab was really useless..

    Actually, I think it was the Georgia swamp episode that he caught a snake and roasted it. But, you guys are still spot on...the guy rarely ever killed anything. He mostly wasted his time just making crap that would, in his mind, improve ratings.

    You'd think he'd stick a fish hook (or3)and some monofilament in his wallet
    Or would that be cheating because "jsp" wouldn't carry something like that...
