I have found this show a great comedy. It is a great example of all the worst things to do prepping. That some people actually take this show serious is quite funny.
I am actually watching the latest episode on my DVR right now.
It is so ridiculous it is funny.
Once again the Dad decides to test them with an attack. Seriously? How many times before finishing construction is this guy going to stage attacks . This is waste of time and does not make moral better for the group.
Of course the Dad hasn't actually given his kids any real instructions on how to really defend the place. Amazingly two of the kids survived and actually "killed" the soldiers. Of course they had to retreat up onto the roof to do it, and lost two other kids.
However this show is just a joke. There is more war games in this show than prepping. It is a show more about the drama of a dysfunctional family than prepping.
I will still occasionally watch just to get a decent laugh, but I have not seen one episode that has shown me anything useful for my own prepping.
I should however point out how these dumb to us shows can have good points, like introducing prepping to other family members or friends. Like other prep shows did for this person. So while we might hate these shows, they can serve a purpose for us.

My family watched Doomsday Bunkers and The Colony. Now they all want to make BOBs. And for the longest time they looked at me like I was crazy! Now the 9 year old is bugging the crud out of me. She's surfing the net for what needs to go in one!
They collected rain water in buckets today and the 7 year old wanted to sanitize the water some way the dude on Man vs Wild did.
It just clicked for them. Yeah!
So while these shows might be a joke to us, you might want to familiarize yourself with them to be able to discuss them with family and friends.
