Too many childish mistakes to be real.

By Richard Davis

While the series is interesting, the Discovery Channel probably shouldn't try to pass the Browns off as anything other than what they really are. Greenhorns that have decided to try to make it in the wild. They make far far too many mistakes that could be fatal to have the experience they profess to have.

Not too much makes sense. Going into the wild broke, but buy 29ac. of some really high dollar real estate. Having 1 chainsaw that gets damaged by a simple rookie mistake. Losing a crabpot that is one of their main sources of food, almost losing their skiff, which is incomprehensible to me. Too much to go on about, but you get the idea.

And really, a saran wrap hut. A brown bear would be really impressed with that.
