Meet the Preppers (on Animal Planet)

With all the talk about NatGeo's Doomsday Preppers, there's another show that I happened to catch the other night called Meet the Preppers.

This one's focus is just on one family, giving us a glimpse of their daily routine. Not sure if I watched the first episode or if I missed a few.

I thought it was a bit strange that it's on the Animal Planet channel, but whatever works. I was actually watching Pit Boss when it came on right after.

My first thought was: "Cool, another prepper show!"

So naturallly I watched the entire episode.

Interesting show, overall. I'm still on the fence on this one. For this episode, there's parts I liked more than others. I thought the drill with their prepper neighborhood group was a great idea.

The whole "let's kidnap our own kids to test their skills"  is a bit too extreme IMHO but in the end the way the two girls handled the drill was impressive.

Also when they were setting up the workshop / garage and organizing the supplies, I thought hanging up the guns in that manner seemed too exposed and way too easy for intruders to access it but that's just me.

So I'm probably going to set a reminder for the next episode and watch that too.

Anyone else catch it? What did you think?
