That's for sure.  I lost all respect for the Nat Geo channel years ago.

The other "tragedy" is the unprecedented and ongoing descent of National Geographic from a respected source of journalism into the cheap thrills of seedy "reality" tv, and turning a 60 minute story into 8 hours of considerable droning repetition to incorporate as much commercial space as possible. Click bait TV.

Huh, been a year but better late than never?
I am no fan of the reality genre, but watched this because of the obvious local interest. One of the things that struck me (among others already pointed out) was how repetitive much of it was; seems they could have condensed the whole thing into two episodes. As it turns out I have a friend who is a cameraman, and who has worked on some of the biggest reality shows around (but not this one). I mentioned this to him, and he said he knew someone on that production crew and they were on a *very* tight budget, leading to the re-use of many of the same shots/scenes.

I know this is old, but I watched it the other week and that is actually what turned me on tot the area, not so much of  the drama , but just the land, and hoping it still hadn't be overrun with latte sipping yuppies who wanted to turn everything trendy and using terms like Glamping ,,but after seeing old girls trailer I figured it was too late for that.  them I got to looking and seen it has really gotten popular aver the past few years. , but soon i figure the san antonio folks and the austinits will realize its not really their kinda place and move on the screw up the next unspoiled area... but at least there is still room for me out there somewhere I hope.  far as the show,  I kept cleaning my monitor hope the shitty camera work was my set, but it wasnt , it looked like the whole show was filmed through a potato .
