I saw the first show and didn't like it. I feel like the show is making fun of preppers instead of giving out good info, but then I guess that's true with 90% of cable TV shows these days.

Wonder when they're going to have the Jersey Shore Prepping Special?

I had never heard of it until today, just wondering if it was worth a look see.

That show is rediculous. I could only handle the first three episodes. Half of those people are clowns.

Depends.

Are you looking for something remotely unbiased, that is simply a documentary of what these people do, how, & why? No.

Are you looking to watch a total train wreck of a show, that paints these people as complete nutjobs? Then yes.

I've watched a bunch of the episodes.
The people they pick for these shows just aren't going to make it.
One guy had his house forclosed and all he has is his Semi and a wife with cancer. He thinks he's gonna hide the truck with camo netting and make it thru something.

The others are the people who live in apartments in like the middle of like New York. They guy had to run like 3 miles to a storage shed to get at his supplies.

totally true. these are the flunkys. ask any prepper... any real prepper... they wouldnt be on this show,showing off what they have and how they are doing it. anonymity is key.

Now there is another show that was talking about disaster shelters that was pretty interesting.
