Doomsday Preppers 2012 Season Premier Episode

Doomsday Preppers New Season

Doomsday Preppers new season begins this Tuesday, November 13th.  I watched a preview of the first episode, “Am I Nuts or Are You?”

The premier episode has a similar format as the previous season, featuring three different prepper types, with varying reasons for preparing:

  • man preparing for nuclear war
  • teenager preparing for chaos resulting from an economic collapse
  • family preparing for a biological terrorist attack

Each segment showed preparations made, personal interviews, some action shots, and finally, an evaluation from Practical Preppers.  This time around, the evaluation included scores on key factors needed for survival:  food, water, shelter, security and something call “x-factor” that gives the prepper an edge.

I watched last season’s shows as well as read varying opinions about them, both complimentary and others not so.  As before, I was interested in finding out how other families prepare, and it continues to hold my interest.

They all state specific reasons for preparing, which may or may not sound plausible to the viewer.   People are concerned about different threats and there are multiple reasons to prepare.  The way I see it, these same preparedness supplies and skills can be useful for almost any disaster or emergency.  Compared to previous ones I’ve seen, the featured preppers in this new episode appeared more low key, and dare I say more “normal” than previously shown.   I thought the more detailed evaluation with the different survival factors was helpful.

Whether you watch it for entertainment, curiosity or to learn a thing or two, I’ll be watching right along with you.

  1. I agree with you. They may not be prepping for what you are prepping, but I have never watched an episode without learning something new.

  2. Not sure how I feel about the new rating system. They seem to have a pretty pessimistic outlook for a lot of these guys and converting to a single number doesn’t really take into account the sustainability of their plans. Anyways, really looking forward to this season

    • Up here in Canada where I live the current price for a Litre of gas is $1.26 Canadian. According to most mesairung sites, there are 3.79 litres in a U.S. gallon. If my math is correct (and I never claimed to be any good at math) that means a gallon of gas here (Southwestern Ontario) is around $4.78 right now. Since the Canadian dollar is close to par with the U.S. dollar, we are close to $5.00 gas right now.

  3. I wouldn’t wanna be caught in the city let alone in an apartment.People get crazy when they’re trapped in buildings.I have info on my blog survivalsfittest.com .
