‘Doomsday Preppers’ may have divided critics but the popularity of the show is undeniable. The show chronicles the lives of normal people who simply take steps to protect themselves and their families against all kinds of disasters.
As the title suggests, preppers always want to be prepared for worst-case scenarios, even if a disaster never arrives.
Fans of ‘Doomsday Preppers’ might remember Brenton Bruns and his family as they were featured in the second season of the show. The family’s castle proved so popular that the channel decided to do a spin-off series. This show chronicles the lives of the family as they build and improve the castle.
In addition to that, Brenton always keeps his family on their toes so there’s also a lot of training involved. He also recognizes that while building a castle is a bit extreme, it’s actually no different than installing an underground bunker.
The show centers on Frank Belcastro and his family as they prepare to live entirely off the grid. During the show, the Belcastros learn new survival skills, build items that will help them in a disaster, and contemplate various scenarios and the best way to deal with each of them.
‘Independence USA’ is quite interesting as you can actually learn valuable skills that apply to many different situations. On top of that, it’s always fun to see the various gadgets that the family uses, whether they’re homemade or professional grade.
Though the show only lasted three episodes, ‘Doomsday Bunkers’ is still an incredibly compelling look into custom-made bunkers. Though survivalists have tight-knit communities with people who constantly share their knowledge with others, each person still has different needs and wants.
‘Doomsday Bunkers’ shows a lot of different bunker styles as well as process of installing and operating them. For instance, some are only built for survival while others are built with comfort in mind as well. Regardless of the type, learning more about underground bunkers and how they work is very interesting.
The show is a detailed look at the lives of the extended Kilcher family as they spend their time in their Alaskan homestead. The Kilchers are the descendants of a Swiss Alaskan pioneer so their survivalist skills have been honed across several generations.
Unlike many series similar to ‘Doomsday Preppers’, the Kilcher family actually lives in extreme situations. As such, they constantly prove that they’re capable of living entirely off the grid. Should a disaster occur, there’s little doubt about this family’s survival. Moreover, it’s fascinating to watch an entire family who lives very differently than most people in the West.
Cade Courtley, a former Navy SEAL, hosts and presents this show as he instructs viewers on how to act in various worst-case scenarios. The show covers everything from nuclear attacks to a home invasion, so you can be prepared in virtually any situation.
Aside from Courtley, each episode of the show features experts that attempt to inform the audience on how to deal with specific disasters. Furthermore, the show sometimes features survivors of such disasters who tell their own stories and provide some personal tips when possible. Basically, it’s both entertaining and informative at the same time.
The majority of TV series like ‘Doomsday Preppers’ revolve around individuals or families who are heavily invested in preparing for disasters. However, the shows rarely simulate disastrous events and instead, opt to inform us what we should do in case of emergencies.
This show follows a group of people with a wide variety of skills as they attempt to survive a simulated post-apocalyptic event. Each member of the cast has something unique to offer. For instance, someone may be good at hunting while another person may be great at building things.
Aside from the main cast, the show also features a considerable number of actors who act out several scenarios for the “survivors”. Finally, several experts provide their own comments on a variety of subjects such as the psychological issues that may arise in a post-apocalyptic event.
In case of a catastrophe, whether man-made or not, only a handful of people will survive. The simple truth is that most of us do not want to spend the time, money, and resources necessary to prepare for disaster. After all, only a handful among us believe that a disaster of that magnitude will occur in the near future.
