Welcome Preppers and Survivalists,
I watch a couple of tv shows regularly. They are "The Walking Dead," "Stargate Universe," and "The Event." Sometimes I also watch "Fringe."
As you can tell with "The Walking Dead" and "Stargate Universe" I enjoy science fiction with a survivalist twist.
So what does this have to do with survival.
First, you need to have a quiet hobby that allows you to relax and unwind from the stress of the day/night. If you have electrical power, it might be tv. Yes, even "Dancing with the Stars" might count ; - )
Second, I was watching a recent episode of Stargate Universe and some folks froze to death because they didn't know how to build adequate shelter to protect themselves from freezing temperatures.
Lastly, never believe what you see on tv. Especially the news and talk shows because the news/talk shows have gone through a couple of different people's filters. The producer picks the story from a large pool of items, the director guides the direction of the story, and the newsreader/commentator emphasizes the words used during the story.
