A DiscoveryChannel show in the same vein as ''{{Survivorman}}'' and ''ManVsWild'', with the draw of offering two experts with very different backgrounds trying to live together while showcasing their individual talents and methods for survival. Yes, it is in fact ''Theatre/TheOddCouple'' [[XmeetsY meets]] ''ManVsWild''.

Going into its seventh season, the show is now hosted by Grady Powell (a former US Army Green Beret) and Bill [=McConnell=] (a primitive survival expert, continuing the show's OddCouple approach to survival situations. The show now places new emphasis on a 72 hour survival window (citing statistics saying that chances of survival significantly drop beyond this time period) that the hosts must endure.

* DoesNotLikeShoes: As noted above, Cody goes barefoot throughout the series, unless doing so would be truly dangerous ( snowy environs, for example he does wear socks, and in one episode he fashioned a set of sandals so he could walk across sharp volcanic rocks without cutting his feet to ribbons).
** Matt, Cody's replacement, wears sandals he makes himself. But, unlike Cody, Matt doesn't wear much in the way of clothing. In hotter climates, Matt wears nothing more than a deer hide around his waist and a bandana on his head, to Joe's discomfort.

Also unlike Cody, Matt isn't averse to wearing normal footwear (he wears boots in snowy environments, but otherwise mostly sticks to sandals), and he wears long pants in cooler weather.

The show originally featured Cody Lundin and Cave Canterbury demonstrating their differing philosophies towards survival. Cody, is a hardcore naturalist who has worn neither shoes, long pants or underwear in the past 22+ years and attempts to live in harmony with nature as much as humanly possible. His partner for the first two seasons, Dave, is an army veteran and professional hunter, along with being every gruff southern stereotype that has ever existed.

* TakeThat: Joe made several thinly-disguised digs towards Cody during Matt's debut episode. It's not known exactly why Cody left the show, but one thing that is clear is that Joe was completely fed up with Cody by the time they split.
