Real Survival

(A new TV show that I’d like to see.)

Not long ago, someone told me about a “reality tv” show called “Survivor”, where a bunch of “contestants” have to do made-up challenges and eventually someone wins some money. From how it was explained to me, it’s not really about survival so much as watching average people act like goofs on television, while saving the studio loads of money they’d otherwise have to spend on scripts and writing and quality.

This gave me an idea for a new television show, one where people were in actual life-and-death survival situations. This is the survival show I’d like to see:

You take two teams, 12 people per team. They are average people, just a random selection from whomever applied to be on the show. The directors can pick the ones that will give the most ‘drama’ or be the ‘best tv’ or whatever. As long as none of them are trained survivalist professionals. Once the two-dozen contestants are selected, they get divided into teams by luck of the draw (or by the director setting up who they think will make for good tv.) Then we assign three ‘experts’ to each team. Each team will get two cameramen who are experienced in wilderness survival and wilderness photography. Then each team will be assigned a ‘captain’.

The first team gets Les Stroud, from the Survivorman series. The second team gets Bear Grylls from the Man vs Wild series.

This animated show, co-produced in Canada and the UK, is frigging hillarious.

I remember watching this like 5 years ago, always trying to find when it was on, and finaly when it vanished, wondering when it would hit the DVD shelves.

Well it was a long freaking wait. But FINALY it’s here! It’s here it’s here it’s here! Yay!

All our favorite characters are back! Mr Hell! Victorian Lady Detective! Serge the psychotic seal cub! Josh, the reincarnaion guy! Giant squid! Champion the Wonder Snail! Golden baby!

Now. Go. Buy. This. DVD.

Aaagh! It’s The Mr. Hell Show!
