So there's two people on each team not..

So, I'm not sure the name "ALONE" applies very well now..

Love watching the show to learn from the many mistakes contestants make. Looks like several slips/cuts this year in the preview. Episode 0 covers the teams "making the cut".

Two family members are each team. One dropped to make camp, the other dropped 10 miles away, then hike to find the other...

Not the greatest show, but entertaining.

Just started watching the "Making the Cut" episode. Not sure how I feel about the two-person team format now. ALONE should mean alone but I guess I'll give it a shot. I'm glad they are back on Vancouver Island at least. I seemed to enjoy watching the contestants in that environment over Patagonia for some reason.

I miss watching Ray Mears and Les Stroud. Learned quite a bit from them actually and they motivated me to go out and hit the bush more often.

Never a truer statement spoken!

I do like the concept but agree that Alone is no longer. Should have run it as a spin off

Saw Episode 1 last night. The new format definitely adds a new dynamic to it all. Hiking 10+ miles through that thick, dense vegetation and foliage could take a looong time. Wouldn't be surprised if almost half the season is spent just on that trek alone.

Too bad for the young guy that his brother tapped out and sunk them both only a few hours in to it. Was a little disappointing to see him not show any grit at all. I wonder what would've happened if he had came across a bear or a cougar!

I liked the husband and wife team. It was pretty cool to see that lone wolf wandering around. The shelter she built between those two cedar trees looked great, I was impressed. However, and I could be wrong, but did anyone else notice she built it on a slope? I have a really hard time sleeping in the woods on even a slight slope.

Just watched it on History Channels website.......(lots of commercials)

Wondering if 10 miles is too far considering the incredibly dense forest.

Too bad the 19 year old sprained his ankle........the older brother was unhappy....

Yeah, it's not "alone". I don't like this concept, mainly because the producers are expecting to film family drama to boost ratings and not for the sheer bushcraft knowledge. I hope no one starts starving like last time.

I don't know how the F they are going to find each other in that terrain. That's crazy. Here's a compass, in all that S go find someone ten miles away from you.

I do like the added visuals. More people with more cameras you are bound to have more interesting things on video.

I'm kinda digging it so far. Maybe not as much as the first few seasons but still pretty good and looks like it will get better. I'll go ahead and make my prediction now: the Bosdell Brothers. I believe one is retired Army and the other is a commercial fisherman in Alaska. It was kinda neat to see the one brother say he thought he heard someone yelling in the distance--when in fact it was his brother yelling. For the runners-up? Not sure, but I'll go with the husband and wife team. I like the shelter the wife built, now with a fireplace. Nice.

Well so much for my prediction. Too bad too, as those brothers were only less than a mile away from each other when he tapped.

So far the attrition level is high. They're dropping like flies due to mechanical injury. Every fall, trip, and stumble is because of that stupid handheld. They keep getting injured because no one's paying attention to where they put their feet. They have to do the Les Stroud videography - walk down to the site, set up the camera, start filming, and walk back to the starting point.

Nice catch of that salmon. Brody was less than happy to eat salmon sashimi.

What do you think made that big crash was that made Dave jump out of his skin? I wish the post production editors would stop adding heavy breathing and animal grunts in the background.

Well saw the last episode on History Channel website. 3 out of 3 so far the base camp member tapped out. Who would have thunk that they would be the ones to tap out?

"Next fire mentality"... another Canterbury viewer/pupil.

I have high hopes for the wife/husband team and the Biologist father/son team.

I had a strong feeling the 19 year olds would be tapping out first. Too bad for the Bosdell Bros. as I was rooting for them. Probably because he was carrying a bow and arrows. I want to see a contestant actually harvest a larger animal & see how well they do with prolonging the meat, etc.

That lady set-up the camera to get the shot... then promptly steps on the neck and smothers the bird in the sand. Bird craps all over the place... has convulsions... then dies.

Woman is a savage.

The younger Canadian brothers, Ted & Jim, arguing about the crab trap. Idiots. I think the hunger is affecting their judgment. Suspend the bait bag or keep it on the bottom. Well, if one way doesn't work, try the other.

The Biologists son/father team looks like they're doing okay. I worry about the old fellow. Said he got dizzy. He did start catching those fish, which is going to help out a lot.

I noticed they did a fish boil vs. the wife/husband team that smoked their fish and roasted the duck. I'd boil everything to extract as much nutrients as possible - eat the meat and drink the stock.

The editors did note that bears can smell food. I recall the first couple of seasons that most folks kept a separate cooking/prep station away from camp. This might make a huge difference.
