Just watched the first 20 minutes of ALone in the Wild.
I am enjoying it so far.
I think the show is more about the human experience than a "how to" of surviving in the wild for 90 days. (even though yes, you spoilers, I now know he doesn't make it that far.)
So being the human experience, i think the show is an honest look at this one mans experience. He experienced something that very few will ever get the chance to and not just being in the wild. The chance to truly see himself when confronted with his fears and aloneness.
I couldn't imagine being alone for so long, but what could be perceived as the editors focusing on the negative parts, in my eyes, looks more like an honest account of his actual state.
Growing up in the UK, i personally am always having irrational fear of wild animals when i go into the mountains over here. It sure takes some deep breathing and a mantra of " its more afraid of you, its more afraid of you"..before i calm down.
