Good catch. I record these for the wife, so I didn't notice the duplication. I've got a FRO ARWL for this and, so far, it's recorded one Amazon and four Kalahari's. It was set to record yet another Kalahari about 15 minutes from now and another Amazon later this week. The problem might be with the original air date. For instance, the Amazon episode that it recorded on 08/13/07, has an original air date of 08/17/07. So, TiVo probably thinks it's a different episode or something (there doesn't appear to be an episode number).WhiskeyTango said:For some reason, my Tivo is recording every airing of the new episode. I tried changing the season pass from new & repeats to first run only and its still picking them up. Annoying!! I am glad the show is back though. Watch a real survivor instead of Bear 'Holiday Inn' Grylls.
Do yourself a favor and read this article:slydog75 said:Bear "Holiday Inn" Grills?
He seems pretty hard core to me.
So what if he gave up on his "injured" arm? In the end, he always stays true to the situation he's in and emphasizes techniques in survival that everyone can learn from. Also, don't forget that for every major trek he makes, say across a large hill, he does it three times. One to other side to set up the camera, back to the beginning in order to film it from the start, and then once again back to his camera. Filming your own survival show is a pain in the ass--plus, don't forget that he's lugging around 60 pounds of camera equipment while not eating or drinking anything substantial for 7 days.littis said:I'm definitely impressed with Survivorman, but he sometimes falls short as well. One episode he wrapped his arm as though it was hurt, then later changed his mind and went back to two arms because it was too difficult. Granted he wasn't hurt but don't start what you can't finish. Also, he always states that if he can't get out he'll just wait for the rescue crew. That's not really surviving. It could go either way though...he does state he has to survive for only seven days.
This is referring to a British series called Born Surivivor. In Man v. Wild they do explicity state that he's not recieving any aid. I'm hoping this isn't the same show with a different name. I'm also hoping nothing on Man Vs. Wild is fake and until I see proof that it is, I really enjoy and am impressed with Bear.BBC said:"The programme explicitly does not claim that presenter Bear Grylls' experience is one of unaided solo survival.

and another article mentioning Discovery specifically...The series was originally made for the Discovery Channel in the US and was acquired for UK transmission by Channel 4.
