how to change a tire

I just happened to turn on an episode today where they blew out a tire and were stranded on the side of the road I Noticed the helicopter crew and a camera crew me I say what's really going on those guys can't go get a tire for real you know.. or am I the only one that notices things like this and these type of showsthere are so many of them in situations similar to this where you know help is just a step away so are they really stranded I think not is it reality or fake reality you make a decision

Interesting Show

I really enjoy this series. I admire the Brown family for their tenacity. They stick together no matter what obstacles stand in their way. They are honest, wholesome (Matt's favorite movie is Seven Brides for Seven Brothers), they don't cuss, hardly ever argue and work hard no matter how cold it is to fulfill any deals they strike for the supplies they need. They never disrespect their parents, or each other. I see all of the negative comments saying how fake this show is, but I don't agree. They work too well together to be anything but real. I am sad that filming had to stop due to threats and being shot at. I hope production will resume when the Browns settle on their new land.

Family Raised W/O Marketing and The Modern Consumer Culture

Great story of a Family that to most of us looks as if The Browns lost all and have moved to start over. Through hard work, experience that is shared, and family team efforts it truly looks as if they haven't lost everything because they have each other. Over and Over again the family shows that material goods, unless it can truly do something to help everyone in the family, isn't important. What is important is the family support and identifying each members strengths and encouragement along with praise helps all the Browns children by having strong self esteem, a knack to share knowledge to each other and encouraging values. Being in the "Bush" does require a direct connection with the food supply. Often meals are caught and killed but honestly with everyway to hunt and fish the family is concerned with a clean and quick kill so that suffering is minimized, most important is that they show that all killing is to support the family and nothing is wasted. If your concerned about children seeing that and questions being asked, look in your Frig and then think how much your family wastes. Now that hamburger that was tossed out because your family member didn't feel like it, just hope that Cow was put down as quickly. Its a good time to explain how bacon started as a pig and burgers a cow, more important is to show that to waste is harvest to an animal before its necessary. All in All the Browns continue to have life dump its Mud all over them, not once but three times in one year. They Brush it Off, Hug each other and Keep Going. Showing everyone whats important.

Amazing

This show teaches me so much. These people know everything about nature and they show every time it airs. The cussing is an issue, but all the super bad stuff is bleeped. Great show.
