Today I watched some episodes on a DVD I checked out from the library of the first season of Man Vs. Wild, the fantastically cool show on Discovery channel about the ex-British Special Forces soldier Bear Grylls who shows you how to survive in impossibly inhospitable terrains around the world. My four-year-old daughter sat in with me on an episode about the harsh landscape of the Scottish Highlands. Her thoughts on:
- Bear skinning a dead deer to use its skin for a shelter: “Eww!”
- Bear peeing into a canteen and putting it under his shirt to stay warm: “Eww!”
- Bear showing us how to get out of a swampy bog by stripping down and jumping into one: “Eww!”
- Bear killing a rabbit by karate chopping the back of its neck: “Eww!”
You get the idea…
Still, a terrific show which I highly recommend. Very fun!
