If You Haven't Seen Survivorman Bigfoot Episode Two, Here Are Two Reviews

What was so refreshing about this episode was the level of healthy, genuine skepticism Les adopts. An impartiality that is desperately rare to find even during such a period of popular culture such as this.
He appears to be reassessing, self correcting, progressing and trying to maintain as open a mind as possible, but what's as significant as someone of Stroud's stance having such an obvious agenda for the truth, is the fact that not for one second do you get the feeling that Stroud is latching on to what's being suggested... Especially from someone as convinced as Todd Standing. This is someone who's clocked thousands of hours in the most harshest of places on the planet having an open mind to the possibility and not ignoring what's presented as evidence and that's as significant as you can get.
In this episode, Stroud and Standing come across some nice examples of physical evidence and show one of the most comprehensive tree structure comparisons you'll see to date. Stroud suggests that even with the examples of unknown primate DNA that there is, even with the accompanying sources of evidence there is for this creature; that science should act to accomplish either one of two outcomes.
With Stroud seemingly this involved for the foreseeable future, you get the impression that with such significant people now looking for the answers... The more positive outcome for those invested in this subject might not be so far away.

As I sat down to watch Survivorman Bigfoot Part 2, I heard Les Stroud and more vocal Todd Standing say, "Welcome to Bigfoot Country." What a welcome it was as Les and Todd continued their trek through the high timber country of Canada to finally get the evidence necessary to completely convert Standing to "bleever" status and perhaps convince the rest of the viewers and the world to take a more serious look at the evidence for the existence of Sasquatch as well.
After Les establishes a break camp in the ambush brush, and examines some more compelling tree structures, the focus shifts back to Canadian Bigfoot Guru Todd Standing and his taped footage of previous close encounters with a purported group of Sasquatch. Stroud acknowledges that the footage could be hoaxed and that in the absence of a type specimen for this species, HD footage will be necessary as preliminary proof that these subjects exist, and he vows to maintain his skeptic status until then.
Stroud and Standing leave no tree structure unexamined, no snap twist ignored and no rock unturned in pursuit of their goal to provide said footage, noting footprints in very remote areas along the way. Paddling down Salmon Streams, deep in Grizzly country, they are on a mission to provide a prima facie evidentiary showing of proof sufficient to provoke mainstream science to take the subject seriously enough to either confirm it or as the charismatic Stroud quips, "put the matter to rest for good."
Moving to the top of the mountain for a final night, they abandon the film crew and strike out on their own. Again, no spoilers here, but you will enjoy the final camp scenes and how they attempt their last night interaction.
In summing up Survivorman Bigfoot in its entirety, a number of conclusions can be drawn. Todd Standing, for one, should be taken much more seriously as both a researcher and a guide as he took Les Stroud to some very impressive locations, acquitting himself well of some of the as yet unfounded allegations against him.
As for Les Stroud, the Survivorman himself has opened up a whole new audience to his program, and will no doubt leave the Outdoor and Bigfoot Community discussing this Travel and Entertainment special for some time to come. As to whether Bigfoot is out there, just beyond the tree line, observing people's camps, waiting for the opportune time to seek contact with them, there's only one real way to find out . You have to open your door and walk outside, and find a place you too might examine some physical evidence and attempt the same interaction that Les Stroud and Todd Standing have pledged to continue to pursue. But please, if you do, don't forget your fully charged and operational HD camera.
