    My impression is to survive as a native tribesman would. I'm not sure but if I was going to undertake something like that I'd prefer some clothes. This is the first I've seen it.

    Just what is needed - another reality tv show, eh?

    Naked - um - from what i have been told by those from native ancestors - that they did wear something more in the winter. :) And little in the summer - because well, you have to be a good hunter to keep a wardrobe. :D

    I didn't know weather or not to watch it, but I decided finally to watch the first episode. I was seriously disappointed. The man and women both argue too much, well mostly the man I guess but I think it's just not worth the time. I've seen so many shows like this and I feel like there's so many better ones. I do give them credit for trying to do that like tribesman though. Crazy. I'm thankful for clothes!

    Under those stressful conditions I think it would be expected to have disagreements. So far I'm finding it interesting.

    From the couple of episodes I have seen, they usually make loincloths out of whatever they can find, for a bit of protection.

    This is a series ?

    I only watched the first one, and the guy was nasty.

    The logic behind the experiment fails, in my opinion.

    They didn't learn anything other than how tough it is to live in
    a jungle without clothes.

    The only lesson would be to vegetarians to see how humans could not survive in the wild without eating meat and getting skins for clothing.

    Heck, this was in a tropical jungle. Imagine what it takes to survive in cold weather climates with snow 4 months of the year?

    The thing is - if someone is raised sans a lot of clothing - they grow up in it- its normy.
    If they are an adult and try it :D...i dont think its the same thing.

    I always thought that this show is just bizarre and gimmicky. I've seen it, and honestly, it just feels like watching people awkwardly falling and stabbing themselves with thorns while in the nude. There are a lot of reasons why we wear clothes. Protecting ourselves from injury is definitely one of them.

    So far 've learned from the series that nobody looks good naked in the jungle with mud in their butt cracks. And you can catch a catfish in Africa by spreading your legs in a mud puddle. :p

    I always kind of assumed that the first was true. I mean, some things just don't need experimental confirmation under any circumstances whatsoever (kind of like whether fire is dangerous to poodles).

    The second...I need some bleach. For my brain.
