That would have made more sense but I'm sure was not the goal of the producers. In their minds (or so I imagine) they want the tension between the two approaches to be part of the show's dynamic.

Could not have said that better myself... smile Mears and Lundin would have been fun & very interesting to see though.

Perhaps it would be better if Cody had a CGI partner, like Ted, Bart Simpson, or Wile E. Coyote. That would solve the dominant partner issue and clarify the reliability of the information presented.

I think the producers are trying to get the drama of two different styles of survival.Cody's is a Neo-primative style.Dave Canterbury had a more Mountain man styla with some military mixed in.It fit in well with Cody's style I thought.Joseph Teti,style I think will be a more evaision and escape style as taught in SERE schools.While I was in the service I was given very little survival training.It was for pilots and SPECOPS types only.From what I can understand SERE teaches keep moving stay hidden stay alive till you can get to friendly lines.If you do get caught,resist and plan escape and maintain military ethics.
I am looking forward to this new season but will miss Dave CCanterbury.I just hope that they can actually teach something and not let the producers make it a dramafest.....

While SERE is undoubtedly useful in its context, most of us are not likely to be engaged with hostile forces and need to embrace pragmatic survivalism,which often means we should stay put, conserve energy, and make ourselves as conspicuous as possible, using whatever appurtenances of modern civilization (up to and even including pliers!)we might possess to win out. I'll bet a lot of us even wear shoes when venturing into the wild.

Hikermor,
I completely agree and that is what I was trying to convey.I am curious to see if that is what we will see.I just hope that the show producers don't turn him into another Bear Gryls.....

This is great! Cody is the ultimate in survival common sense and attitude. I Liked Dave OK just because it was like watching a boyscout on pixie sticks and Mt Dew run amuck. Cant wait to DVR the new season.

OH, Merry CHRISTmass folks!

If I had cable, I'd watch it for the entertainment.

I like Cody's books and Dave's vids.

Well I watched the first two episodes of this new season this week and loved it. I have met Cody and he is the real deal and really enjoy him on tv. I wasn't a big Dave C fan but tolerable.

I really like Joe. To be honest I am more in his vein of thought process and background than Cody's so i feel more comfortable with his prospective. Also the same reason I was a big fan of Man, Women, Wild.

Les would have been a great team mate for Cody, but honestly I think that is more 'dream team' than 'opposing views team'.
