Kind of buried in this thread , Bob Coxner talks about Survivorman , a show that is currently showing on The Science Channel.

My family has enjoyed all the episodes that they have shown so far. It's a lot of fun to watch him in each of the various situations that he puts himself in. Not very realistic all the time, but it's still a fun hour of TV.

Anyone else (besides me and Bob) watching this?

You might be right. It's part of the Total Choice Plus package on DirecTv (channel 284) and America's Top 180 on Dish (channel 193). I don't know how many cable systems carry it though.

Thanks, Wilhite, I'm going to give this a try. I need to justify that extra money I spend for a digital package, anyway! :)

Love the show...just wish there were more places for him to go as they're already reruns. :(

He does a pretty good job of making do with what little he has and filming it all too boot. Anyone thinking about going on Survivor should watch so they could get some ideas on how to really start a fire (although they give them fire now anyway :( )

Because of this thread and went and read about this show. I was thinking, damn looks like a fine show...

UGH, I dont' get that channel...

Maybe it will make it to the regular Discovery Channel eventually.

There are two "new" episodes coming up at the end of November and start of December that my Tivo hasn't recorded yet. I think that's all the episodes that they made except for the "Making Of..." episode that shows the behind the scenes stuff and outtakes.

I discovered this show a few weeks ago by accident. It's quite high on my season pass list now. I really enjoy it.

I also wish there were more episodes though; quite a few reruns.

Apparently the 1st season is on DVD here.

Great show!

I found it by accident too, because I record "Discoveries This Week", and it caught the begining of it one time.

Really great show, I read somewhere that they were negotiating a second season and that Les is recording some other show called "...off The Grid" that is about him and his family living without any power, water, etc or something.

I just started watching this about three weeks ago. There was a marathon, and now I am hooked. I hope they continue to find new situations to drop him off in. This week he will be a castaway in the ocean. That should be fun to watch.

I've just stumbled across this show. There are actually 2 shows now....a 1/2 hour version that I think plays on Discovery and then the full hour show that runs on the Science channel. I just discovered the hour long show and switched my SP to that one.

The show has been on Canada's OLN for over a year now - showing consistently/weekly. I really enjoy the show - his philosophy and respect for nature. I have to agree that the "behind the scenes" show was outstanding. My wife didn't really get it until she saw that episode and was blown away. I also enjoyed the episode in Northern Ontario! He was eating crazy stuff and got snowed on! I guess canadian programming has two perks - survivorman & HNIC!

This is the only show that I haven't seen in the series. To the best of my knowledge, it hasn't shown on The Science Channel here in the US.

For anyone interested, he has a website (was linked earlier but in different context) where he posts some news about what's going on. He's said that there is some potential for a new set of Survivorman shows, but nothing seems to be firm yet. I don't think that he could stretch it out much more than about 20-30 shows, but it would be really cool to see him put together another set.

I discovered it accidentally about a month ago and have 4 or 5 episodes ready to watch. I'll save them for a rainy summer rerun season day.

I have watched one episode, "plane crash" and it now makes sense that the show is an hour. I saw the half hour show.
