  1. I just checked my local listings for the outdoor channel at the times listed. I don’t see it. Is the show still on?

  2. it”s the best tv show ever


  4. when will I be a hero

  5. Cool. I might go watch it!

  6. I think BL should see there is sufficient interest in offering the shows online, even if for a fee, or perhaps they can find a sponsor (paging ‘Cabelas’). Not everyone gets OLN, so some form of online viewing would be beneficial.

    This needs to be broadcast on a more readily available channel. Outdoor channel has accessability problems.

  8. In my opinion the show is well done, and also motivating.

  9. is fun but heart breakin a little

  10. They should make a real BSA Channel, not just a show.

    I think this program is great, but I think that just using national camps doesn’t show what happens at the small camps, that we have all over the place and witch more boys go to other than national camps. These camps are just as structred as the big camps and most of the time more fun as well.

    I feel as do others that it should be on more channels than just the outdoor channel. I know that some of the DE’s have DVD of these shows I think everyone should be able to have these in there libary

  12. I would love to know where the location of the show that appeared on television 8 am central time took place. The scenery was beautiful! The show told about a sprained ankle and using a triangular bandage to help a sprain until getting back to the camp site to remove shoe and allow swelling to go down. We couldn’t see which state that was located in, and we have a guessing game up in the air! lol Thanks, the show is very interesting.

  14. I think they should make an entire boyscout channel with a scouts in action series, a Pedro cartoon and a pee wee cartoon

    Sometimes you can ask to recieve a particular chanel a la carte’. If you dont get the outdoors channel you might try acking your service provider to add it to your list. I think that channel is one of those channels. Lots of good stuff on that channel.

    Unfortunately, we don’t get the outdoor channel in our area. I’d love to see it on you tube or even viewable on the Outdoor Channel website. I realize this is a start but I don’t know how well received it will be if much of your potential viewership can’t receive the programming. I hope that is taken into account when deciding whether to continue the program or not when the time comes.

    Loved seeing last saturdays airing wish the wed airings would change to a better time and day though.

  18. A few minutes of the show can be seen on this part of the Outdoor Channel website:

  19. I do not care what channel it’s on, I am just glad that there is at least one that still thinks enough of the scouts to aire a positive show about them. I am sure thay will eventually be available through other media. In the mean time find someone who has the Outdoor channel and ask them to copy it.

  20. As a BSA District Executive, I am very pleased with this production. I will be recording the entire series. I am also impressed with the timing of BL’s release of this show. I would be interested in seeing the impact it has in fall recruitment. Way to go BL! Pedro delivers!

  21. Would love to see it on YouTube or Discovery. Would be really great if it was shown online as well on the Outdoor Channel. Also, would love to be able to show the shows on DVD.

  22. It’s great they offer this new show. However, most people can’t get the Outdoor channel at home unless you pay through the nose for it. Why not make it available online? Or via DVD.

  23. Hey! PodCasts sounds like a great idea. short segments lots of information, entertaining and informative. That’s the ticket!

  24. Who has the outdoor channel?

    Everything ends up on U-tube. I guess thats when I’ll pop my popcorn.

    To: the Scouter that dubs it. please do a good job.


  25. Unbelievable! Finally, the BSA puts us out there where people can see the amazing things that we do, and people are complaining. I think this is a great “step” in the right direction. I think this is the start of something that can get bigger and better. Thank you “Boy’s Life.”
