National Geographic channel.
Different doomsday preppers explain their plans for survival of different doomsday scenarios, such as oil crisis, EMP, or extreme solar flares knocking out computers and grids.
FEMA and survivalist experts grade the preppers, and give them advice.
Now part of my lexicon: "bug out" (leaving where you live to survive), and "bug in" (staying where you live to survive).
This is a beautiful show. Educational and very entertaining.

I caught a preview for it. If those are the people that will be left after the disaster...I think I'd rather be a victim.

I prefer planning to survive the coming zombie apocalypse. I've got a 3rd floor condo with only a front door and a balcony to worry about defending. Unless of course they got into a neighboring unit and tried to come through the walls. That could potentially be a problem.

This kind of reminds me of when I went to the science fiction museum in Seattle a couple summers ago. I went into the gift shop and found 2 books sitting side by side. One was titled: How to Build a Robot Army. The other was titled: How to Survive a Robot Uprising.
There was also a Shaun of the Dead zombie survival T-shirt that included things like "flowers for Mum" and "money for pub."

I guess the interesting thing about the show was the "handicapping" by the experts, which gave credence to apocalypse plans.
People with $100,000 worth of food in their house and plenty of ammunition and secretly-located "bug out" vehicles - I didn't know people went to such extremes. (Rub raw eggs in their shelf with mineral oil, and they'll last for 7-9 months).
Unintentionally funny was the New England liberal (that''s how she was represented) and her bees and garden and total lack of firearms. If the fit hits the shan, I guess her and her trust in humanity's goodness will go in somebody's stew.

STAY BACK! Or my BEES will get you!

I think it's good to prepare in case shit hits the fan. My husband and I have several firearms, ammo, some food, and a backpack with essentials.
Seriously. Look at the world. People are CRAZY. Countries are CRAZY. You never know what will happen.

Remember, double tap.

This show sounds awesome.

I won't let my husband watch it if I'm in the room. He bought me a canner, we have some food storage, places to bug out to, etc. oh, and I've heard the term bug out for at least 10 years. I'm paranoid by nature so I have to be careful how much I pay attention to with shows like this.
On a side note we were watching one of those conspiracy shows and they were showing footage from outside a "secret" meeting. They were listing all these crazy theories making me nervous. I'm about to turn the station commenting that the show was too extreme and they were making crap up, when my husband points to himself on the show. He used to be on a security detail for a world leader and he was there @@. I won't watch those shows at all anymore.
