I share with you my current fave shows: The Deadliest Catch, about the Bering Sea crab fishermen, and Man vs. Wild, about Bear Grylls showing how to survive in the wild if you become a stranded hiker etc. Manly shows! Full of bravado and swearing!
Bear is the quintessential man’s man, having been in the British Special Services and parachuted here and there saving people and getting his men out of impossible jams. Never mind the Marines that do more before breakfast than we do all day, Bear does more before getting out of bed than we do our whole lives.
BTW, the Deadliest Catch’s narrator is the Mike from Dirty Jobs. BAM! Kick it up a notch! I love the smell of testosterone in the morning.
So anyway, in last night’s repeat episode of Man Vs Wild, Bear stranded himself in the European Alps and showed how to get out alive. At one point, reconstructing a ‘what to do when you fall in the frozen lake’ scenario unfortunately endured (fatally) in recent times by a Swiss hiker, Bear jumped in the lake. To avoid hypothermia, you have to strip off the wet clothes and do some other things, which I cannot remember anything after he stripped.
So I was googling that scene, to view it again on either video or to read about it on the chat boards. High minded reasons, you see. I typed in “Bear Grylls naked” and came to a blog entry of a show fan who complained that too many people were typing “Bear Grylls naked” on Google searches. I hate being a cliche.
