'Bandersnatch' is awesome, 'Man vs Wild' is awesome, but Netflix thought 'What would happen if we smash those two together?'
Well, a great show is what you get.
Netflix's latest interactive project is coming this April and the premise already sounds so cool and promising. The show which is obviously hosted by none other than Bear Grylls is called 'You vs Wild' and I honestly just want to take a moment to appreciate the name.
'Man vs Wild' has one basic premise - Bear Grylls attempting to survive in extreme conditions and climates. But, 'You vs Wild', as the name suggests, will put the viewer in charge and all the decisions will determine whether he succeeds or fails. Basically, the people who would sometimes yell at the TV saying 'he should've done this instead!' can finally get a real voice.
Since Black Mirror's 'Bandersnatch' was such a hit with the audience, even though I doubt anyone ever even managed to actually finish it, an interactive survival show should kill it.
Netflix, please make a thriller or horror interactive movie next so we can actually control some of the stupid decisions instead of calling the characters dumb. Thanks.
'You vs Wild' is set to premiere on Netflix on April 10th and all the eight episodes will be available at the same time.
