Carnival Row on Prime was turrible. Last two episodes were exceptionally hideous.

Watched Season 2, now watching Season 1 of Alone.

Pretty knarley circumstances in a tough place to survive with 10 items.
and you are alone.
I think they get a medical check once a week but not positive.

Its a good watch, all guys the first season, a few women in the the group of 10 the second season and one in particular does extremely well.
Very good but a bit of drama like all reality shows. I like the day to day nuts and bolts of actual survival skills demonstrated/used by these talented and determined folks.
You have to film, and are supplied with a satillite phone so you can tap out. There are no shortage of bears, cougars and wolves.

Meh. Most survival shows are fake with manufactured drama and danger. The only exception was les stroud survivor man.

That's the only one I've ever watched more than an episode of. He always seemed legit unlike obvious fakes like Grylls.

The Mandalorian is legit. Favreau is doing a great job capturing the feel of the original trilogy that the prequels and sequel trilogy haven't captured. That ramshackle, busted up world building where all the buildings and ships look like they've been there for a long, long time.

I'd like it to have a bit more scope, and some of it feels a little too TVish to really be Star Wars, but that's minor criticism.

Story wise, it's doing a great western in space episodic deal (like Firefly did long ago), and if they are going to go the Lone Wolf and Cub route with the Baby Yoda, brother, I'm all in.

Agreed with Les Stroud, he was awesome and to this point has not been beat.

But, watch a few episodes of Alone and weigh back in, looks pretty legit to me.
Dropped off with 10 items of your choice...maybe from a list, not sure, but hungry is hungry and they are filming bears and cougars in their camps.
