I hope that ALONE isn't Jumping the Shark! I think we all like innovation, over starvation on this show. I at least don't watch to see suffering, I watch to see perseverance and innovation, triumph over the challenge and isolation. Some of these other shows have thrown, a hand raised piglet or goat in for subsistence, and it is stupid. I do wonder about the beach fish! I just watched the Mongolian season, I somehow missed, and it was quite good. BTW, it looks like they are skipping this week. episode 9?
