Always good and well to be prepared. Just cannot wrap my head around why preppers insist on preparing for the end of the world simply due to their own fear based expectations. Bomb building, contaminating your stored food supplies, guns, knives, violence galore! Becoming self sufficient with safe shelter, food, water is something we all desire and work toward. All this talk about expected scenarios that is only what you would see in war televised is a horrible idea. Focus should be on living. Not having to defend yourself from every human being you come into contact with 24 hours 7 days a week. Then on some episodes some even talk of bartering. Seriously if the future world you picture is that horrific how could you possibly think bartering would ever come in to play. The term bug out said so often. That pretty much describes these people. They aren't living and enjoying the present. They are living in the projected creations of their minds. And not one of them good. Definitely not something I want my grandchildren watching and learning from. The preppers assessments are helpful and the best part of the show. And at the end of the show experts give improbability of most of these scenarios ever occuring.

This title has:

Too much violence
