Naked and Afraid

How can cultural elitists like ourselves put TV in the Culture category? Well, where the hell else is it going to fit?

I've seen several episodes and enjoyed them, but it's starting to feel a little stale for me. Worth a watch if you haven't seen it.

Any answer but "nudity" would be suspect. :mrgreen:

It's not "good" nudity. It's really not about nudity as such, it's about how vulnerable we are in our natural state. I wouldn't do something like that in a state park, to say nothing of New Guinea or the Amazon.

Real life version.

Young woman recounts weeks-long survival in Alabama wilderness
https://www.yahoo.com/gma/young-woman-r ... ories.html

""I just passed a road and there's a lady that, she came out of the woods naked and she's been sick. She's been in the woods for three weeks," the caller told 911 dispatchers.

Police thought the young woman had lost about 40 pounds and noted she had suffered deep cuts, bug bites, poison ivy stings and sunburn. Theris told ABC News that she survived on eating berries, mushrooms and drinking puddles of water. "If it rained I'd have to like squeeze the water out of my hair and drink it," Theris, a former waitress and radiology student, said."...

Theris admitted that around the time she went missing, she was supposed to appear in court on a misdemeanor disorderly conduct charge. That case was dropped last Thursday when the court presumed she had died. Police told ABC News they believe Theris survived in the woods, but say there's a lot more to her story."
