PostSubject: ONE CAR TOO FAR   Mon Sep 10, 2012 10:28 pm

ok i have watched this show now since the series started...other than these two clowns in the show its ok to watch..i can stand it while im waiting for something else to DVR....

now...other than the fact that this show is completely scripted and that is plainly obvious with the latest show that was filmed in the dunes desert of Chile...all the "old" tracks of where they filmed the jeep from different angles...the "sand bowls" are big and ominous but they are bypassable...several scenes were portrayed as "OMG there is no way around" yet the camera angles clearly show that if they had driven down the razorback they would have had no problem going around...obviously there is a camera crew with them...as seen from the "tracks" that lead to nowhere...anyway im ranting i know but in the end there are some good tips of survival...the solar still...which i have actually used...and the ammo can stove..using sand and gasoline...good to know...
anyway i will continue to watch it as it has good tips on survival...but the 4wheeling to me is just scripted too much...

I saw the one they were put on a glacier. They busted their dana 35c rear axle, and used the hilift dangerously. They limped that sucker down the mtn. though. A decent show the characters were weak.

1st show was suspicious, and second show was obvious that it was scripted. Some neat little tricks in there, but they're all scripted in to make Wu look useful.

Yeah, its scripted. However its one of the best "offroading" themed shows on. So its this or Everyone Loves Ramon reruns.

if you notice on each show the equipment changes...one show they have a tackleblock and a bunch of rope...the next show they have traction pads...its as if someone had already done the trip and figured out what they would need before they "actually" make the trip...and of course the jeep is "fixed" before each show which is ok since they should be driving a maintained vehicle...however in this last show the beat the hell out of the hood...i mean destroyed the hood to collect water...if in the next show there is a new hood then its just ridiculous...i wont watch anymore...

like i said before if they had actually put Les Stroud in this show it would really make me want to watch it...Les has ZERO help from the outside...he goes it alone from start to finish...put someone like Tanner Foust with him and this show would actually be pretty good...Bill Wu is an idiot he may have driven "a bunch" of cars and raced but to be honest i had never heard of this guy before the show started...

Someone who drives through a river of boulders at 20 mph is certainly not someone I would consider an expert driver. I know they do it for the drama, but come on.....

My wife and I love this show. Pretty much the only night we stay up past 10 on a weekday.

Sons of anarchy breathed a little life back into the old boob toob for me thats for sure a show I can actually look forwards to. The last one was rescue me, but it got pretty fruity.
