Product Description

Adventurer Bear Grylls heads back into the wild for the 5th season of Man vs Wild where he tackles extreme survival challenges in some of the most inhospitable places on earth. Bear goes from the extremes of Eastern Europe's frozen mountains to the searing humidity --and crocodile filled landscape -- of Northern Australia's Arnhem Land. In the Torres strait, south of Papua New Guinea, Bear is marooned on a desert island. He must find food and water, before setting to sea. The setting may seem idyllic, but these waters are patrolled by deadly jellyfish, stingrays and sharks . And Bear comes way too close for comfort with these ultimate predators. In special edition 'Fan Vs Wild', Bear leads two lucky fans on a 48-hour survival mission in the frozen Purcell mountains of Canada to test their nerves, their reflexes, and their stomachs. Bear heads into the Canadian Rockies and then the Mojave Desert to face the elements at their worst and test what they really do to the body. In Canada Bear is buried alive in an avalanche to test how long can he survive, swims 30 feet under an ice pack, and weathers a blizzard in a snow cave. But even the best laid plans can go awry. Bear is airlifted to the hospital when a glissade test goes horribly wrong. Once he's healed, Bear heads to the other extreme: the Mojave Desert. There he finds out what it's like to be caught up in 48,000 gallons of flash flood and then engulfed in a 90 mph sandstorm. But it's not all a chore for Bear. He makes a personal record: a HALO jump from 30,000 feet, so high he can see the crvature of the Earth!

Amazon, You should not post items available if they are not in stock! Seeing as how I could not find a box set I had to purchase all the seasons of man vs wild individually. This is the only season ordered offered directly from amazon and you have delayed the shipping THREE times! I've missed giving these as a bday gift and now I will not risk not having it Xmas as now its expected mid Dec? If you didn't in August I doubt you'll have it by the busiest time of the year. You shouldn't be charging credit cards until you ship either!

3.0 out of 5 stars A little dissapointed........ April 12 2011
By E. Gallardo - Published on

I'll start by saying that I absolutely love Bear Grylls and Man vs. Wild. I watch Seasons 1-4 constantly on Netflix and could not wait for Season 5 to be released on dvd. So immediately upon receiving it I opened it up and looked at the cover, then I flipped it over and checked out the back and noticed that it was only 8 episodes. Then I read the episode titles and realized that 2 of the 8 were Behind the Scenes and another was "Fan vs. Wild".

I watched the first disc rather quickly (it's only 4 episodes) and enjoyed it very much. Next was disc 2 which starts off with the "Canadian Rockies" episode where the crew uses machines to create situations for Bear so that he can demonstrate things you need to do to survive if you were in a similar predicament. The next episode is "Shooting Survival" basically a behind the scenes, followed by "Fan vs. Wild" and finally "Behind the Wild" (another behind the scenes). So if you are looking for classic Man vs. Wild episodes then you will only get about 3 episodes of that (all on the first disc) and the second disc actually contains no traditional Man vs. Wild type episodes.

Just an fyi on how many episodes each season has.
Season 1 - 15 Episodes
Season 2 - 13 Episodes
Season 3 - 10 Episodes
Season 4 - 11 Episodes
Season 5 - 8 Episodes
