Doomsday Preppers Open Thread

We're winding down on Doomsday Preppers. Last week we had the hippy bomb shelter and the California survivalist...we'll have to see what this week has in store!

One thing that I will be watching for is the "expert assessment" portion of each profile--in the past, they've used that to point out the remote possibility of each particular scenario. I think--based on fan feedback on sites like T-Blog--they're pulling back on that. For example, I've noticed that they've reused an assessment that said economic collapse "could not be completely ruled out." Keep an eye out for this change in the show!

The comment section is yours for discussion--have fun!


  1. IMO, the show serves the manipulated MSM purposes to 1: entertain and 2: to marginalize preparedness and preppers in general. While the National Geographic Channel is owned by Faux News Corp (FOX Entertainment)I have been finding that even Faux News is just as bad as other US MSM news sources.

  2. ..Was it me or repeats last night...what the hell?


  3. Shoot - I'm traveling and didn't get to tune in. If it was repeats last night, I've got no clue what's going on...

    1. Yes sir, they were repeats. The chubby lady who can cook gourmet meals from the pantry, teaches shooting skills to other women, and lets women beat up her husband in self-defense classes. Was it just me or was she very flexible for her size, reminded me of Melissa McCarthy from "Bridesmaids". I haven't seen a finale yet, so hopefully there are a few more episodes left.

  4. I was working. My DVR is set to record all new episodes and it did not record it. The commercials said it was that crazy gormet cooking chick that tought self defense and terrible shooting technique to women.

  5. at first i thought it was a rerun too but then i realized i had seen another show featuring the same hippy and his bombshelter, i think it was like alternative housing or something like that. but that might be why it seemed like a rerun.

  6. After watching all of these episodes and researching food storage, it struck me when one of the folks on the show were showing their canned foods that they have preserved and the guy is talking about surviving earthquakes that a lot of the food we see (and have stored) is in glass jars...on shelves. Just a thought.

  7. hmmmmm..watching a re-run, and the guy with the (imho, unworkably-expensive) "survival condo" DID have a good quote - "Prepare now, because you don't want to deal with the alternative"
