Default Man vs Wild Box Set

I'd heard a little bit about this dude going by the weird name of Bear Grylls. He was the dude who would explore the wilderness in search of bugs and such that could sustain you if you were lost. It was supposed to be pretty gross stuff. Man vs Wild Box Set also sounded like it wasn't really essential viewing, and to be honest, it all seemed like it was a bit of a set up, something that would make itself out to be more than it was.

So I decided that I'd test the water with my little toe, so to speak, and grab the compilation DVD Man Vs Wild: Extreme Moments. The DVD was supposed to be a collection of Bear's 50 most extreme moments. What it felt like however was a promo reel for Man Vs Wild. Sure, Supernatural Box Set was interesting, if some what gross (as expected), and it did do it's job wonderfully: it made me wish I'd gone with a full season of Man Vs Wild.

Bear is charismatic and very likable, in a you're-freaking-insane kind of way. His exploits were astounding and at the same time really, really stupid. But what Extreme Moments couldn't do, is show these moments in their context, and after seeing about 20 of these moments, all I wanted to was see the full episodes from which they were taken. Extreme Moments is the drug that dealers give you to get you hooked. Ringer Box Set whets your appetite, but doesn't fully satisfy.
