If you have missed any of the Survivorman shows, here's your chance to see them.
Starting Monday, May 5th the Science Channel is running "Survival Week."
I ran through part of the schedule for that week. They are showing a good many of Les Stroud's first three seasons with the Survivorman Show.
They also have the four part series called "Survivorman's Survival Secrets." The four shows were entitled shelter, fire, water, and Macgyverisms as I recall.
Also featured will be the two special 2 hour shows filmed in the Sea of Cortez and in Norway. They are labeled part one and part two of each location, and as far as I could see they are showing all four but not sequentially.
Survivorman's Top Ten , The Missing Pilot (Winter) and The Missing Pilot (Summer) are also being shown. These don't refer to aviators but to the two pilot features he used to pitch the show to Discovery Channel.
The two episodes of "Survivorman and Son" will be aired during the "Survival Week." I enjoyed those, though I thought he was a little tough on his son. He means well, though.
I did not see the two episodes on the "Search for Bigfoot" listed on the schedule. That's probably because only the first has aired. The second is on Friday at 10:00 on the Science Channel. When I first heard of these two shows, I thought it was a strange foray for Stroud, who is a very down to earth person. But he did have an unusual experience while filming an episode of Survivor Man, and this is a follow up. I saw the first show and enjoyed it. Fantastic scenery, none of the tacky fake drama most "big foot" shows have, and he's pretty unbiased as to whether or not such an animal could exist.
So, if you have a recorder, check the schedule on Science Channel and record the ones you'd like to see.
