Meet the Family
I was looking for info on when they would start running the show again as I'm looking forward to seeing more episodes. I believe they should be thinking more and getting tips from people before going full steam ahead with things. Even the layout is prone to vital things being accessed by outsiders for their water, food, and solar power are out there. Being it is too late for most of the layout to be changed you may need to focus more on other aspects for you won't thwart others from doing you damage, but you could further try to minimize it in some ways. You could put the PVs on the roof which is out of the reach of outsiders for example.
I really like your show. I think the Father has a lot of good ideas and I love the castle. I know their is a lot of drama with the siblings and a couple need too grow up, but I really enjoy it.
If you hate the show peeps why bother here? to much time on your hands, take it for what it's worth! Dawn-Marie and her twin Brother are useful the rest not in my prep. It's a show people not much real prep info there. No real prepper would use much of anything but that does not mean it has no value, Dawn Marie if your family pisses you off got a safe place for you, hope you like venison
And here's why the rest of the family doesn't get along with Jr. The apple sometimes does fall FAR from the tree:
I am a 50 yo widow and have tried for years to have my 17 and 12 yo sons get prepared...mentally and physically for a disaster. We live in a Wilderness area, and mudslides, lightning storms and floods are a yearly occurrence. My husband was in special forces and passed 9 years ago, and he taught me to always be prepared. I have been a prepper since I was young. My boys are a product of society. However, that being said, my oldest son loves this show, and it has given him interest. I can't say that I agree with all their preps or the way they go about it, but at this point if it gets my son interested, then we watch the show.
We dislike the oldest son and feel that he is more of a hindrance than a help. This show has given us a base to build on for my kids. I was in Search and rescue, taught map and compass and survival training, am a homeopathic nurse, and we raise our own animals, garden, and medicinal plants. I forage, and know how to live off of the mountains. My kids know nothing. As they watch this show, we discuss the episode and think about what we would do in this situation. I feel for the dad, and know where he is coming from. I wish them all the luck in the world.
Big fan of the show. I just hope other preppers realize that this is preppertainment and not a documentary. Everyone is clean shaven and made up for the camera. Also, I wouldn't recommend most of the preps depicted in the show, but they are interesting to watch. As I see it the significant message is that you prep to protect your family, but your family takes everything personally and can be the hardest people to live with.
if the family of the castle sees this post i think you guys should biuld a balista it is a giant crossbow that has a giant crossbow bolt that has a cranke lever and is easyer to hit your torget then a catopolt im srry if i have spelled this stuff wrong i am a shity speller btw i would hope you would let me and my family in to your castle becouse we bring skills to the tabel and we will bring food watar weapons ammo and hunting skills medicel skills fishing skills and other typs of survivel skills
I would like to know more about the rest of the family. Is there a mother anywhere? Where are the other 5 kids? Did they all say "HELL, no!" when Dad asked them to help?
Brent II strikes me as a meth addict, from the way he acts, talks, looks, and seems to think - or not think. He's the opposite of an asset to this series. Kick him out before he gets someone seriously injured or killed. I doubt that he could actually contribute to this family if the SHTF.
This is so much better than any show ive seen recently because its fun, interesting, and hilarious. Pathetic how people criticize this but idolize Jersey Shore, cuz that is so much more realistic haha
Ahh, push up bras, cleavage, tight jeans and "building a castle"... Lol welcome to the US and its television. Nat geo is this the best you can do?
What! Another stupid TV reality fluff show???? Get real folks. God is the best & only One to seek after for wisdom. The earth will be destroyed and ALL who die in their sin will be judged and then cast into the eternal lake of fire. John 3:3=Happy eternity Revelation 20:15=The eternal burn
Eternity happens and it is a personal choice!
Now here is a prime example of what Jesus warns us about in His word. The fool says in his heat that there is no God! Noah is the only man along with his family that was instructed to prepare for the destruction of mankind. This man is not a Noah. True failure to look outside of the box of reality!
He and his family would be wiped out in a flash by real end time survivalists who wanted food,water and shelter. I always have a good hard laugh at TV shows that present such foolishness. Get real people!
Now on the other hand there are some hardcore Mormons who too have been getting ready for end time disaster. Here is the real deal folks! No one escapes their day of physical death,day of personal judgment by God and then final eternal realm. Eternity happens and it is a choice. The wise choice is to get right with God and ask His son Jesus to cancel the eternal burn notice. Live ready & die saved!
Doomsday castle!? Yeah right. HUGE LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
How funny & foolish at the same time!? 20yr old child thinks that she is an end times warrior?
JOKE! She has NO clue about real combat,survival and the truth of what God tells us in His word.
She and her family are true pipe dreamers to reality. I sure hope that they WAKE up and reality check focused!
Hope you guys do well!
Would love to have someone from DDC on my radio show - Your Preparation Station.
Doomsday Prepper Ex-Co-Producer was on just as the season aired. Preppers want to hear the scoop!
I really do like the programming on NGC, but this is just embarrassing desperation for worthless ratings that will never transpire.
I think you should rename this show A GUY WHO BUILDS A CABIN IN THE WOODS THAT LOOKS LIKE A CASTLE AND PRETENDS IT'S A DOOMSDAY CASTLE SO NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC PAYS FOR IT. That's not a bunker they're living in that's just a basement and if I wanted to break in I would just smash out the windows next to your door (I mean escape hatch -wink, wink) For your next show please consider the following MY FAMILY TRIES TO WATCH DOOMSDAY CASTLE WITHOUT TAKING A BATTERING RAM TO OUR TV.
She is a stone cold fox. I would hope that she is there for me in the end times as hers is the last face i would like to see.
Well all I know is , the cast must contain attractive women or the show would go nowhere . Like this lovely blonde I see before me . I believe if you live like this then you choose to live in world like this .
I thoroughly enjoyed the show. My wife and I watched and cheered Brent and the family on the whole time. This is an awesome Doomsday spinoff that I'll be certain to watch regularly. We're already big fans. Looking forward to many more episodes. Best of luck with the castle and defenses guys!!
It baffles me to see how tough these people are on TV shows and all the drama they ooze... Looking at how they were while showing off, and then comparing them to actual events... they will yield completely different results.
I have seen a few of these kinds of shows on various channels and still I cannot stop laughing at all of them! Talk, talk, talk, blah, blah, blah...
Marauding neighbors or others? Just like it is now... if someone wants in bad enough, there is nothing you can do. If they want something bad enough, there is no amount of preparation to keep it from happening.
Cold hard fact of the matter is nothing we do will ever prepare any of us for what will be. Humans are the the most unpredictable, and dangerous creatures on the planet. End of discussion.
@Wayne Atchley LOL my thoughts exactly! He needs to be thrown out of the castle or keep him around for in case someone attacks the castle then throw him off the top at them and maybe they will just take him a leave the rest alone. He cant even pretend to be a man and I think the girls have bigger balls than he does
@Wayne Atchley It's meth withdrawals.....
But seriously, he is the most immature 40 y/o big brother ever! Perhaps the producers want him to be, for the drama, but he sucks! His leadership style is by berating and insulting his younger siblings. Then they, in turn, do the same. He has no life experience or skills or expertise to contribute to a scenario like this. He needs to follow instead.
@Sam Gone, begone, Sam. What a jerk.
@Sam Gone ....you first!
@Sam Gone , be gone, Sam.
Why are you watching, Sam?
@mike mikei do see your point, the girls obviously die their hair they all have different hair colours ive seen at lest one of them with a manicure and exactly how much make up do they have? on an other note if they didnt have water right away how are they wearing clean clothes in each episode?
@dwight hasbrouck *sigh* see this is what makes all religious people look like absolute nutcases. First of all, a massive natural disaster big enough to take out a nation, even one as large as the USA, or an nuclear war for that matter, does not necessarily mean the apocalypse. Second of all, remember the seven years of tribulation that comes before the end of time? Remember the reign of the Antichrist? This may not be the best solution, but prepping in general is not a bad thing. Just because one cannot live forever, doesn't mean you should roll over and give up trying to be secure until God decides it's time for you to go.
@dwight hasbrouck u dont think that they will survive you will not survive somthing will happen and your scrud
