"This version has less footage than the version you order on line at the Discovery Channel website. This version does not have the commentary with survival experts. Discovery Channel is trying to pull a fast one on us."

(5 out of 5 stars)
"I love this collection of episodes. It contains 20 episodes (4 discs)of the Discovery Channel show "I Shouldn't Be Alive". Each episode details an event where people, sometimes through poor decision making, sometimes through just bad luck, end up in a life threatening situation. Then the story is told of what the people did to either survive or in some cases die. It really makes you think what you would do in their situations, as well as teaching you some handy survival tips. They tell the story through interviews with the actual survivors and dramatic reenactments (done very well with professional actors). Ever want to know what to do (or not do) if you are stuck on a life raft with no provisions, or how to talk your way out of a hostage situation? Live and learn from the people who have been there."
