    After not watching TV for a long time, my kids are branching out from cartoons & have sttled on Gator Boyz, Call of the Wildman, & Tanked. For me, Tanked seems the most entertaining. Gator Boyz was good for an episode until you realize they basically do the same thing on each 'call'. The crazy hillbilly guy (Turtleman) on the Wildman is just annoying, and none of the critters really matches up to even a 5 foot alligator in terms of making things interesting...

    Back when my 14 year old was younger, he used to watch a few shows on there (or maybe it was discovery :confused:). Now, for his "educational" tv viewing, he likes watching those reality shows on those guys in Alaska that basically hunt to survive, some show on paranormal investigators, and Iron Chef

    I watched Ultimate Hippos a couple of nights ago. Hippos are insane. I think a Hippo can beat a Bear in a fight.

    Little known fact: Hippos kill more humans/year than any other animal. They are really nasty creatures.

    Wow, more than bears? They had a segment where a guy was trampled because he got between a Hippo and the water. Apparently Hippos can get up to about 20 MPH in a short burst and sometimes run with their mouths open. They said it was like the guy got hit by an SUV with spikes sticking out of it.

    Whale Wars is fun. Hypocritical propaganda, but interesting to watch.
