The History Channel has attempted to expand on it's "reality TV" theme along the lines of "Swamp People" or "Axe Men" but the newest edition "Mountain Men" really misses the mark. Promotions suggest viewers will learn how to live off the grid but none of the featured "mountain men" actually do that. Tom Oar lives in a very comfortable modern home in the Yaak Valley of Montana. Marty is an Alaskan trapper who does spend part of the year in a remote cabin but flys home to catch his daughter's ballet performance. Eustace Conway runs a sort of New Age, back to the earth hippie commune where people pay big bucks to visit the remains of an old farm.
The producers try to make high drama of every day activities. Will Marty finally catch something? For three episodes he has not. Will a bear eat Tom's dog? With deep snow the bears should be in hibernation. Will Eustace be able to cut enough firewood to pay his taxes? According to his web site he charges $650 for a person to camp five days on his land.
Here's a clue for the producers, "real mountainmen don't have web sites". LOL
