I ordered this because I own all the other seasons and generally enjoy watching Man vs. Wild shows. This season isn't anything spectacular, like the exciting and great season 4. Season 6 is basically more of the same, Bear going through the motions and presenting exciting scenarios and situations. What I found sorta funny is that there were 3 different episodes where Bear took his sock off to use in some way. Three different times! And it's not even something new. I've seen him do the ol' sock trick in every other season. Who cares? The episode with Jake Gyllenhaal is pretty good. The episodes consist of lots of erratic cutting and zooming to keep the viewer "enguaged" or to make things more exciting. No new survial techniques are presented. None of the destinations are particularly special or exciting. If you're a fan of Man vs. Wild, it's not a great season, but not terrible either. Not as boring as Season 5. If you're newly interested in Man vs. Wild, I would suggest starting with Season 4. Here's a ranking of seasons 1-6, starting best to not so good:
1.Season 4. Most exciting and "fresh."
I found myself thinking a half hour of watching each episode was plenty, where as the earlier seasons I enjoyed the entire hour. Pretty much only worth purchasing to finish off your Man vs. Wild collection.
