Have you ever been at a loss as to what to watch? Too many shows to pick from? We’re here to give you our opinions on what we feel is worth watching. Check it out and then let us know in the comments below what you’re choosing for tonight!
Have you always watched those Bear Grylls survival shows and wished you were there with him, participating in the adventure? Well, now’s your chance! In the new interactive Netflix series, You vs. Wild, you are Bear’s partner on his worldwide adventures, and you get to decide how things will play out. Much like the recent Black Mirror: Bandersnatch special, each episode of the series will prompt the viewer at several points, offering a pair of options. Your decisions will change the course of the story. Which supplies will you choose to pack? Will you follow the river or bushwack through the jungle? Will you climb the mountain or repel down? Will you try to cross a chasm via a fallen log or swing your way across like Tarzan? Which of the two mysterious caves will you choose to enter? Your decisions could mean life or death!
I really enjoyed the interactive Black Mirror episode, and I’ve been a fan of Bear’s other shows over the years, so I was really excited to check out this show this morning. Would I make the right calls, or would I end up leading Bear and myself down a perilous path? I can’t lie…I was purposely trying to pick the most dangerous options to see if Bear would survive. 🙂 While each episode is only around 20 minutes long, there are so many options to go back and replay that you could easily spend an hour or so on each. And if you do manage to get Bear stuck in a situation that he can’t get out of, the program will give you the option of going back to your last choice to select the other option.
The first episode, “Operation Jungle Rescue, Pt. 1,” finds you and Bear heading into the jungle to look for a missing doctor who was on a mission to deliver malaria vaccines to children in a remote village.
Check out the complete first season now on Netflix!
I’ll also be watching/recording The Goldbergs, Schooled, Modern Family, Whiskey Cavalier, What We Do in the Shadows, Schitt’s Creek, The Magicians, and Happy!
