Is It Any Good?

This sort-of-informative series offers typical survivalist reality fare with the bonus of documenting how committed partners choose to navigate the wild. Like its sister show Naked and Afraid, it's also laced with arguments about the division of labor, sexist attitudes, and other problems that surface while people are coping with things such as snakes, storms, and starvation. However, because of the cast's preexisting relationships, it shifts much of the focus of the show from surviving the elements to negotiating their interpersonal problems.

Viewers who enjoy man/woman-vs.-nature-themed shows will certainly find enough survival tips, dire moments, and human suffering to make it worth watching. But some of the ongoing relationship drama between these pairs gets annoying, and the more intimate conversations between them are hard to take seriously when they're introduced at a time when there's a real need to work together to secure basic needs for survival. The overall result is a show that seems like it's just trying too hard to put a new spin on an old formula for the sake of the franchise's survival.
