I definitely don't want to see those!

I'd would have watched the show but naked? Really; he had to do it naked?

Be afraid. Be very afraid of white haired men that have nothing left to lose.

Les Stroud and Cody Lundin are worth watching.

I doubt this joker is.

Great Show. All the other TV survivalists have been one upped by a large margin. He has completed the 60 days so i dont know if the show is over or what.

He should have killed a goat sooner in the 60 days IMO.

It's ok cause he is there my himself and does all of the filming.
I hate survival shows that has a film crew with them like Dual Survival and pee drinking bear grylls. I heard that they caught Grylls sleeping in a hotel room while filming one of his shows.
The real survival men are people that go out and do everything by them-self with no film crew like Les Stroud and this man on Naked castaway.
Good luck to them.

Broke his dentures chomping on some kind of green fruit, IIRC.

I was reluctant to watch this series as I thought the whole “naked” think was pretty stupid; it’s really just to grab your attention (which it does). Despite the naked aspect, it’s a good show. The guy has some solid credentials and his Amazon trek is pretty amazing. I know he passed his mental evaluation, but the guy is a goofy bastard.

I’ve only seen the first two episodes, but so far, it’s pretty solid. It really reinforces why you should always consider wearing/having appropriate clothes, a solid knife and at least a lighter! What I couldn’t understand is that it’s up to 30 days and he’s never done any type of fishing or even scouted the reef. I’m sure it has more to do with safety, but I wish they would have at least gone beyond that to explain it.

Water and calorie intake are pretty eye-opening and although most already realize the importance, it is pretty significant which the show demonstrates.

Many have already “failed” him as he needed to bust into his medical kit for antibiotics after severe stomach sickness. I’m not concerned as it’s a show and it does require some fail-safes; he at least said he wanted to avoid it and admitted to breaking into the kit for antibiotics.

Not having a cutting tool is quite evident. Not being able to make a fire for the first 10 days or so is very disturbing. Sure, not all environments need it, but it provides more than just a morale boost. Having fire earlier could have helped prevent getting his stomach bug and very serious dysentery and vomiting, both of which are serious life-threatening situations.

I do find this show refreshing only from the more realistic standpoint of decision making. This guy was very methodical and didn’t take any significant risks. I thought it was pretty good that he had to come up with and stick to a daily work schedule.

It’s a pretty entertaining show and another good reminder of why you make at least minimal preparations and how a few basic essentials carried on your body (including clothes) can make a significant difference.

He screwed up pretty bad eating raw Taro. I've never been around it and know enough that it has to be cooked.

I watched all three hour long episodes yesterday, Mrs. Kubota saw parts as she walked through. It was pretty good, I was surfing the internet as I watched.

The whole fire thing is very important, 10 days or so to get a fire, that is hard. I live on the wet side of WA, January when it is cold and wet starting a fire with tools and fuels can be a PITA, it is hard to find dry wood in areas at that time of year. Then once he got a fire going, it took a lot of effort to keep the fire going, gathering wood.

Also how important a knife is!!!! Life would have been much easier for him.

I was extremely disappointed by this series, perhaps I misjudged the storyline?

Every advancement he made to better his situation (other than fire) came by way of scavenging modern materials, which swayed the story from 'man with nothing survival' to almost 'Naked Dual Survival'.

The Goat capture was suspicious to say the least. And a metal prop drive and spoon washing up on a island 180 miles from anything is just BS.

I caught episodes 2 and 3 and have since DVR'd episode 1. I will echo the fact this guy is no joke.

I LOVE the fact this guy goes in with nothing. That alone puts it near or at the top of the list. Love Les and Cody, much respect for their skills, but this guy is going hard core with a capitol 'H'.

Having finished watching the final episode in the 3 part series, I'd give Naked Castaway a B+. Far more entertaining than most of the drek on TV these days, I was entertained and the show itself did a decent job in portraying the experience of surviving on an island. Although the footage seemed edited more for drama than documentation. The focus for virtually two entire episodes was water and food. Obviously extremely important to survival, and I would disagree with tackling the lean-to before resolving the water situation. The series became most interesting once he was starting to move past basic survival and moving forward with "living" on the island. I would have been interested to see more use of the raft for fishing.

One big takeaway was how much better off he would have been with a knife, a firestarter and a machete. Less than $50 worth of equipment would have drastically improved his situation. In my opinion, with two major medical interventions, the premise of the show wasn't proved to be true. Without outside support in a true survival situation I'm skeptical he would have made it.

Also agree with the previous poster who pointed out many of his improvements came via scavenging modern materials. While certainly a good survival tactic, it seemed to subtract from what the series intially promised, namely a man without any modern gear going it alone for 60 days.
