Quick Look: NatGeo Wildâ€™s â€˜Shane Untamedâ€™
Why Shane-O isn't what you might think
- Critic's Rating B+
- Readers' Rating n/a
Who the heck is Shane Reynolds? Or should I say, Shane O? That nickname, along with the gonzo show title, almost made me click past NatGeo Wildâ€™s â€œShane Untamed.â€ The last thing I wanted to watch was some thrill seeing yahoo jet skiing through the Everglades, flipping off alligators and trying to use a manatee as a boogie board.
Reynolds, who describes himself as an â€œexpert enthusiast,â€ wisely hands off the heavy lifting to actual experts when it comes to things like manatees and wildlife, but throws in a nutjob or two to make things interesting. In the premiere he finds the local â€œexpertâ€ on the skunk ape (basically Floridaâ€™s answer to Bigfoot). Reynolds resists rolling his eyes, though we wouldnâ€™t blame him if he did.
