We've got Basic Cable, but it comes with On Demand and we're able to catch portions of this show.
It's okay, I guess. The girl in Texas that was a prepper and was planning on walking across the city to get to her BOV didn't appear to have a lick of common sense...and it was her boyfriend that proposed shooting her cats if the SHTF. Interestingly, as she spoke these words aloud, her expression and tone changed (even though she tried to continue her brash bravado) and I suspect that their relationship is not destined for longevity. I believe the name for such a boyfriend is "tool."
I'm picking up bits and pieces that might be good to implement into our preps. Sure, they're going for the sensationalistic aspects ("I believe the poles are going to reverse and the continents will break free." and so on) but there are some excellent tidbits.
There are some things that made me roll my eyes and wonder if these folks have considered everything all the way through; I still have no idea who the "prepper experts" are that "grade" the individual preppers after their episodes- but all in all, it's entertaining and educational in a "how in the heck can they afford to live like this?!" sort of way.
I have not seen the episode with Kellene Bishop, who is the lady prepper that seriously kicks some butt. It turns out she's community-oriented, has one heck of a good blog for preppers (preparednesspro.com, among others) and she apparently creates gourmet meals from the food she's stored.
As I was reading about her, her aspects actually reminded me of AmishEggpicker.
