    Series premier, but listed as episode 4.

    I dunno, it was worth watching but I'm not sure how it'll keep interest week to week. We learned years ago on Survivor that starving people are boring and the fact that they could show us 21 days in an hour show sort of points that out. The guy lost 45 pounds and the girl 20-something, they need to put these people down in a spot with more accessible food!

    There were a couple humorous moments. I'll give it another week.

    Also, there's an uncensored version of it showing Sunday night right before the second ep airs.

    Thought the guy whined far more than the girl. He was the one with PMS. Surprised they didn't try to make weapons like a simple throwing stick. Screw the monkeys. That said I could never do this. Tougher by far than I.

    I liked it and will probably do a season pass until I get sick of it. The guy was definitely crabbier than the hippy chic. He was bitter going in, though. I felt bad that she was so proud for getting that turtle after burning the shelter...only to get food poisoning for a few days. I can't imagine being that sick in the middle of nowhere. At least it wasn't the cranky guy who ended up sick. He wouldn't have ever let her live that down. I'm surprised he let the shelter fire roll off his back so easily.

    ETA: I haven't looked at how the guide listed it, but it seemed like I had missed something since they started off the show talking about the snake that bit their executive producer (and it was a NASTY bite!).

    I got a chuckle at how wounded he was when she said his snake was small. :) He definitely wasn't a strong social guy, and admitted it pretty much from the start.

    But, both of them toughed it out and I think that hug at the end was pretty heartfelt.

    Reckon the video/sound team had a modern tent and supplies? Salt in the wound for the naked sufferers.

    Will this always be the case? If so, I may change my season pass to manually record that time slot. I'm far more annoyed by bleeps and blurs than I would be just seeing it uncensored regardless of attractiveness of individuals.

    Don't know. My TiVo shows it airing twice, once before and once right after the new episode. It doesn't show it for the following Sunday, yet anyway. It lists as a distinct show, so you can just set another Season Pass.

    If the crew had been instructed to intervene in the case of a medical emergency (which was stated in the outset), then all this "he almost died in the fire" business was utter malarkey.

    Not too bad of a fakery but I am giving it another episode because it was kind of boring. I am looking at the uncensored version but this is still basic cable so they may show the broken toes or the IVs

    Don't you think the "one personal item" is always going to be some sort of blade/knife and a fire-starter?

    Note: I'm going to ask the mods to change the title of this thread to be a season thread.

    Guess not, but it made sense in that environment to have a pot for boiling water. I'd have brought a larger one, though. :)

    I enjoyed this ep more than the first (fourth) one. Too bad they didn't make their shoes on the first day before they even started walking! I wonder if the people last week couldn't have done the same if they'd thought of it?

    The girl (I'm never going to remember names of people who are only on once) catching the catfish by sitting in the mudhole was downright cringe-worthy, but at that level of hunger I'm sure it was worth it. Still... :eek:

    Oh, the "Uncensored" repeat of last week was indeed different, but in no way uncensored. They added a bunch of pop-up factoid boxes telling about this and that. Supposedly there was some added footage, but I only watched the first 5-ish minutes of it so can't comment.

    Season Pass kept, for now.

    How can they call that "uncensored" when it is still censored? False advertising.

    I skimmed through the entire thing and did not notice extra footage. The factoids did not say anything about the broken toe or the IV

    I think it's hilarious here seeing all the folks getting panties in a bunch over the "uncensored" show.

    One thing I observed is that it looks like contestants who are normally quite fit outdoorsey types wisely came in extra heavy so they'd have some body fat to live off during the 3 week ordeal.

    There were a few scenes that had a "bonus footage" tag on the screen that I did not remember from last week.

    I don't have bunched panties but when something is advertised as "uncensored" and then everything is still censored I would just like to know what their definition of "uncensored" is. If they wanted to air a "bonus" episode with comments and extended scenes, call it something else but it ain't "uncensored."

    As I said way back in this thread before the so-called uncensored show aired, "You've been pranked."

    I still find it hilarious that even after that folks actually expected, you know...

    Indeed I have. Discovery and I have differing definitions of "uncensored". :)
