Sharing an Adventure with Bear
14 July 2015 | by atlasmbSee all my reviews

I suspect there are many who would like to go on an outdoor adventure with Bear Grylls, taking advantage of his experience and expertise. "Running Wild" allows the viewer to do that--from the comfort of his easy chair.

In the first episode I watched (from the second season), Kate Hudson--actress, dancer, and daughter of Goldie--accompanied Bear on a traverse of a pass in the Italian Dolomites. They climbed rocks, they hiked above the snowline, they passed through tunnels left over from WWII, and they rappelled beside a raging waterfall. They dined on available foods. They spent the night on pine boughs beside a comforting fire, taking time to discuss some deeper issues.

When it was over, Kate had experienced laughter, tears, and some moments of contemplation and insight. What more could you ask for? I think Bear likes to push his guests beyond their comfort zones. But he seems rather trustworthy in his exhaustive knowledge of techniques for negotiating risky situations. These are transformative experiences and it's fun to share them.

Update 7/29/15: After three episodes, it is clear that this show is even more than I thought it was. By sharing the triumphs of Bear's guests, the viewer is treated to elevating experiences. As the book says, "Feel the Fear and do it Anyway" and that principle is embodied by the show and its lesson is made real. I am increasing my grade to 9. Enjoyable and inspiring.
