    Seriously Discovery Channel? This is a new low even for you. The show has it's moments, the whole survival thing is interesting for a while... but given that they just find a place on the first day and sit there for 3 weeks doing basically nothing, for the most part is just plain boring. The endless gratuitous buttocks nudity is just a bit OTT... OK actually WAY OTT and totally unnecessarySeriously Discovery Channel? This is a new low even for you.

    Shameless. "Sex sells" and so does nudity. This has nothing more to do with survival than a boy scouts tutorial video. It's all for ratings and to prey off your numb-minded voyeuristic curiosities. If I wanted my kids to learn about survival would I have them watch this? No. Maybe Bear Grylls though, who teaches you REALISTIC skills and doesn't have his junk hanging out for the sake ofShameless. "Sex sells" and so does nudity.

    This is less interesting than I'd hoped. [8 Jul 2013, p.36]

    Naked and Afraid has a forthright feel to it that borders on a psychological and physical study, even though participants remain with a production crew, unlike the grueling series Survivorman, which featured just one man with a camera.

    This might be more amusing if Shane and Kim were more expressive or interesting, but neither evinces much personality.
