If you can learn how to survive a zombie apocalypse from a TV show, you can surely learn how to survive in the wilderness thanks to watching TV shows. There are quite a few good shows about survival (and no, we aren’t talking about Bear Grylls – his advice is dangerous to most people) that we’d like to share with you.
First and foremost, we really like Survivorman by Les Stroud. If you’re a Canadian, you surely know this guy or you’ve seen his show. He’s an artist and a survival skills expert. There is no other show like Survivorman because it is the only survival show where a guy who teaches you how to survive in the wilderness films it all by himself. Yep, there’s no TV crew with him – it’s only Les, his camera gear, survival gear and the wilderness for 7 days (and even 10 days for his short season 4). Les Stroud is a great guy to learn from about survival, because he shows you what a typical person can do in a survival situation. There’s no drinking urine (bad idea), hunting dangerous animals (another bad idea if you don’t know what you’re doing), etc.
The second show that we really recommend is Dual Survival. We like this show because it has a much better quality than Survivorman (well, you can’t get the best camera work if you’re filming everything by yourself). The places that hosts visit are so beautiful that once you see them, you just have to add them to your bucket list. That’s what we like about this show – it takes place in numerous incredible places. Even if you aren’t particularly interested in survival, you would still enjoy watching the show simply for sceneries. It’s a shame that Dave had to be replaced by Joe but that’s just the way it goes. We learned that with TV shows you just have to learn how to move on and enjoy it while it lasts – every TV show will end someday or someone will be replaced by someone else, and there’s nothing you can do about it.
More and more people are starting to watch TV shows online instead of turning their TV. Many people no longer have a television set in their house simply because they watch everything on their computer. Well, we aren’t surprised by that if you can gain access to thousands of titles for a mere $7.99 a month (Netflix).
Netflix is one of the best options for people who want to watch TV shows online. They have a very vast library of titles including almost all newest TV series such as The Walking Dead (by the way, this list of places where you can watch the second season of the show: tvseriesyoulove.com/watch-the-walking-dead-season-2 is a good start for everyone who wants to watch TV series online) or Dual Survival (including season 3 about which you can learn more from this blog post: “Dual Survival Cancelled?”).
Another good option is to sign up for Amazon Prime. However, they don’t have even 10% of what Netflix offers. Amazon.com also offers Amazon Instant Video – for $1.99 or $2.99 you can download any episode you want (you don’t have to download the whole season). You can also check Hulu Plus which costs the same as Netflix. The downside is that they don’t have such a vast library as Netflix does. Don’t get us wrong – it’s still impressive, but for instance currently they don’t offer The Walking Dead (a huuuge minus!).
We think that the best way to watch TV shows online is to sign up for both Netflix and Hulu Plus. You will have access to thousands of movies, TV shows, etc. for a very low monthly price of $16 (they are interrupted by some ads from time to time but you also have ads when you watch TV). When you compare this low price to your cable TV price plan, you will consider Netflix and Hulu Plus a complete no-brainer. We highly recommend signing up for both of these services if you live in a country where they offer their services.
We want to launch our blog with a blog post series called “Our Favorite TV Shows”. We will share here with you our favorite TV shows, including drama TV shows, reality TV shows, etc. We want to start the series with our favorite show by far: The Walking Dead.
The Walking Dead in a Nutshell
The Walking Dead portrays a story of Rick Grimes, sheriff’s deputy who after being shot on a duty awakens from coma in an empty hospital. He wanders around the hospital only to find out that there’s no one alive there – only zombies. He leaves the hospital to find the whole town empty and overrun with zombies. Rick sets out to Atlanta where he hopes to find his wife Lori and his son Carl. Will he find them? What caused the apocalypse? Is there any cure? Are there any survivors? If you want to find that out, you have to watch the show!
The series is based on a comic book series The Walking Dead. TV show doesn’t strictly follow the comic book series but many characters from the comic book series also appear in the show (and many events are similar or the same).
Where Can You Watch It?
The Walking Dead airs on AMC TV, so you can watch current episodes there. They also rerun the show from time to time (including a different version of the show in black and white). If you want to watch the second season, you can watch it on Netflix or download episodes on Amazon Instant Video (or buy a Blu-Ray disc). For a list of other options, check this useful article: www.tvseriesyoulove.com/where-can-i-watch-the-walking-dead/
What can we say? For us, it’s 10/10, and we can’t wait for new episodes. We highly recommend this show to everyone. Watch the first episode, and you’ll find out why. If you’re into zombies, horror, drama, apocalypse, etc. The Walking Dead will become one of your favorite TV shows.
