    I haven't seen all the seasons yet, but the locations I'm aware of are:

    Vancouver Island, British Columbia
    Patagonia, Argentina
    Great Slave Lake, Canada

    It's pretty cool seeing what they're able and willing to do. Each contestant creates their own shelter. Some make some pretty elaborate stuff - a yurt, a cabin-type dwelling, etc., while others have shelters in which they can barely sit up, much less stand.

    They hunt land animals primarily with traps and snares. They fish with gill nets and other lines. Only one so far has chosen not to bring a ferro rod, relying on his ability to make friction fire instead.

    It's also interesting seeing the glaring mistakes that some of these survival experts make (like drinking untreated water).

    The first couple of seasons of this show are also available on Amazon Prime and Pluto TV.

    After watching quite a bit of it the last several weeks, I decided to try to make a bow drill fire starter over the weekend. Most of it came together a lot better than I expected, even with my dull (and not really that great, anyway) camp knife. The biggest trouble I had is with the plank part. I couldn't really find a good piece of softwood to use. I did get some charring on the plank I was using, but never created any real smoke or embers.

    Any of you survival experts create any friction fires before?
    I'll have to check that show out, it sounds cool. I learned to start a fire with a bow drill when I was in Scouting (but I wouldn't call myself a survival expert). IIRC, the most important thing was finding the right materials to put around the plank that would light easily. I want to say dry grass, but it's been too long to remember for sure. Also wearing a glove helps if you have soft hands from working in an office for a couple decades.

    Great show. I was amazed with their expertise and how the body reacts to the deprivation. Some very talented survivors out there, and some very accident prone ones as well.

    Yes. I wish they'd show more of the shelter construction and gadget production and less of the "I miss my wife/kids/whatever so much" crap. They're relying on the contestants to capture things on film, so maybe the shelter-building footage just isn't shot very well. It seems they rarely show the contestants talking about why they built what they built. The shelter that one of the guys built in one of the Great Slave Lake series seemed to be just a tarp teepee, even though it's in a subarctic zone. Was there more to his shelter? Why didn't he build in more insulation?

    Some of the stuff they build is really impressive - I'd like to see more of how they did it.

    Yeah, that tarp teepee seemed very inadequate. One of the ladies made an awesome shelter.

    It looked very rough to be out there. They gotta have some kind of monitoring system in case someone has an accident and can't get to the satellite phone.

    That is the only season we watched, so I need to find the other seasons.

    I watched several episodes of season 2 today, back on Vancouver Island. I can't believe the black guy tapped out in less than 24 hours just because he saw some best droppings.

    I'm interested in Andy Samberg's new movie Palm Springs, which is available tomorrow on Hulu.

    Ditto. With 70 reviews in, it's got a 98% RT score though only a 6.9 on IMDB. I liked Samberg's lower-rated Popstar so if this is at least that good, I'm in. For the sake of the attending womenfolk, I hope it's not too raunchy.

    OMG Popstar is my all-time favorite cult classic. I saw it in the theatre twice. It's one of those movies I'm amazed wasn't a national phenomenon. It's so brilliant.

    Popstar was excellent. I regularly get the Bin Laden song stuck in my head.

    Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping was underrated, or at least underappreciated. I enjoyed Seal being attacked by wolves at the engagement scene, and the final concert was great, with so many big-name stars participating, a superb send-up of stars' self-importance.

    I have a comedy crush on Andy Samberg. I was half-heartedly watching one of those Adam Sandler buddy flicks (*looked it up- Grown Ups 2) and one of the couples goes thru a cheerleader car wash ostensibly as some kind of indulgence for the husband, and whoops there's a car in front of them so they have to go to the male cheerleaders' side, resulting in a soapy homoerotic car wash led by Andy Samberg, Jorma, and Taran Killam to Warrant's 'Cherry Pie.' It was juvenile, and I was cackling and clapping like a seal probably disproportionate to how funny it was, but I am a sucker for that guy.

    Samberg is like the anti Will Ferrell: almost all of his comedies are funny, and hardly anyone sees them or quotes them.

    I liked Palm Springs except for the ending. It really had potential to make a romantic love is absolute bullshit statement for its ending and didn't go that route. It would have been much better that way.

    It is one of the reasons that I hated the Office (UK) Christmas Special. The Office was ended perfectly with Dawn turning down Tim, it was unfortunately that they had to change that later.

    I finally watched Atlanta. It is a great show. The B.A.N. episode is one of the funniest episodes of TV that I've ever watched. It is amazing how varied the show can be. You have a absolutely hilarious episode like B.A.N. and then have episodes like Teddy Perkins. Just a great show.

    Palm Springs was fun. The only thing I didn't like about it was what I perceived as a continuity issue. I didn't let that bother me much, though.

    It really is an amazing show. I hope they can get around to a third season.

    They may if Donald Glover can get some time. I mean Disney+ is currently developing a Lando Calrissian series around him.

    That’s dope. You see the “Hunted” short for Squadrons? I hope the game is the same level story as fallen order.

    Yeah EA is really getting it when it comes to Star Wars lately. That's an instant buy.
