Girl Gone Wild

I’ve mentioned before we don’t watch much TV and lately we’ve been gravitating toward public TV and nature or historical type shows with the girls now that two of our favorite summer shows, Expedition Impossible and America’s Got Talent, are over. Of course they get their weekly quota of Nick Jr. We’re not total TV teetotallers, not to mention we do popcorn and movie night every Friday.

Hubby was channel flipping a few weeks ago and he discovered Man, Woman, Wild on Discovery Channel. If you’re not familiar with it, think Survivor featuring a couple. She’s a former TV news anchor and he’s former special ops military and an expert in survival tactics. They get dropped off in the middle of nowhere and must find civilization. It’s pretty interesting considering I’d last 2 seconds if I got dropped off in the middle of the Amazon rainforest without WiFi or my memory foam pillow or a nearby Target.

Any way, the girls find it really interesting, too, so hubby taped a few episodes. Last week at Miss C’s soccer practice we parental types were talking about favorite TV shows (I am missing my Mad Men dammit!)

Miss A walks up to one of the dads and out of the blue announces, “You know what TV show I like? WILD. MAN. WOMAN,” with emphasis on each word like she’s announcing bingo letters at the old folks’ home.

And then I quickly interjected with, “Oh it’s NOT what you think. It’s on the Discovery Channel and…”

The dad laughed and looked over at me and said, “Sure…yeah. Sure.

Between this and the pole dancing at the pool episode this summer I’ve got to keep a close eye on this kid.

    Oh, I love it. I know exactly what show you are talking about. My husband is obsessed with any reality show about survival. I think it is the Eagle Scout in him. I am with you though, all those shows do is teach me that I wouldn’t survive in the wild.

    Caitlin, I know…I wouldn’t last. I “like” the idea of camping and think it’s novel but then really I’m more of a “let’s stay in a cabin with actual running water and AC and windows” kind of girl.
