Joshua Bam Bam Brown,
A group of amateur survivalists are put to the ultimate test in the wild for 40 days with nothing but a few primitive tools. No food. No clothing. No water. They must hunt and gather whatever they need until extraction day.
Each season of the show follows a different group of dredgers, those who search for gold in shallow waters, at the bottom of the sea or even ocean. They often collect paydirt, ground from the seabed that contains some precious ore.
I am not a hunter and live in suburbia like most of us. This show allows me a glimpse into the lives of people that have chosen a different life and I enjoy this a lot. I am disappointed by some of the other reviews that (mostly) incorrectly portray information as factual this more opinion based. The use of profanity, I think, is understandable when failure of equipment or to complete a task has potentially catastrophic side-effects. It's very different for us if the vacuum cleaner stops working. Much more of an inconvenience - no real harm done.
If you enjoy looking at wonderful arctic/sub-arctic scenery, are open to the choices and transitions of others and can put up with the repetitive editing style, then this is a show you should thoroughly enjoy.
