A former British Special Forces soldier, Bear shares ingenious and often shocking techniques for surviving in some of the world's most treacherous environments in each unforgettable episode of Man vs. Wild. Episodes: Sahara: Bear Grylls parachutes into the hottest place on Earth and shows you how your own urine and eating the feared camel spider can stave off dehydration and heat-stroke. Desert Survivor: A camel train takes Bear to the deadly desolation of the salt pans where there's no food and no water but plenty of mirages to trick the mind.

Jungle: Bear encounters the Emberra Indians, who teach him some of their legendary survival techniques.

This compilation comprises 22 tracks including key performances from Marty Casey, Jordis Unga, Mig Ayesa, Suzie McNeil, Ty Taylor and winner J.D. Fortune. Moreover, it includes live cuts from INXS in the shape of 'Need You Tonight', 'Never Tear Us Apart', 'Suicide Blonde', 'Pretty Vegas' and 'Don't Change' - some of which are from the off-camera performance following the selection of JD. Additional extras on the DVD include contestants audition tapes, an introduction to the DVD from JD, and outtakes from the show. For music fans who found American Idol heavy on the syrupy ballads, Rock Star: INXS added volume to a similar premise--even if the goal was to become the new lead singer of INXS. (At the very least, there are more tattoos.) That said, this DVD doesn't include episodes from the program, but rather performances, each preceded by an explanation from the performer as to the reason they chose that particular song. Although the show featured 15 contestants, this disc concentrates on the six finalists: Jordis, Suzie, Marty, Ty, Mig, and J.D. The other nine can be glimpsed in "Behind the Scenes," in which they get made up, warm-up backstage, etc. The music section begin with J.D.'s quasi-metallic "California Dreamin'" (the Mamas and the Papas) and ends with Suzie's ambitious "Bohemian Rhapsody" (for the most part, she pulls off the operatic Queen opus). Ironically, the strongest performances are two of the least bombastic: Marty's solo acoustic "Mr. Brightside" (the Killers) and Jordis's "The Man Who Sold the World" (David Bowie by way of Nirvana; she also covered "Heart Shaped Box"). The DVD includes Rock Star winner J.D. Fortune's first live set with INXS--five songs in which he sounds a lot like the late Michael Hutchence. (Sensitive viewers should be advised that "Casting Interviews" and "Too Hot for TV" contain profanity and nudity.) --Kathleen C. Fennessy

The complete Vanuatu season of the TV series Survivor. Against a backdrop of volcanoes and earthquakes, the ninth season of Survivor, called Vanuatu: Islands of Fire, got off to a rousing start at a native ritual ceremony full of spears, nasty drinks, a fertility idol, and a lot of sexist attitudes. When the natives divided the 18 Americans into groups of men and women, it stuck, and another battle of the sexes was on. Among the Lopevi members: Lea, the "Sarge" barking out orders; Travis, a.k.a. "Bubba," wearing his Bob Barker T-shirt; Brady, the FBI agent; Chris, whose struggles on the balance beam made him an early target; and outspoken Rory. Among the Yasur members: power broker Ami; big-eyed Eliza, whose motor mouth overshadowed a surprising resilience; acid-tongued Twila; and sheep farmer Dolly. Also on the teams were two players with physical impediments: Chad, with a prosthetic leg, and the spiritual Scout, whose artificial knee made her the most immobile Survivor contestant ever. Age lines were drawn as well, with one group dubbed the "Fat Five." But just when the tide seemed certain, a number of reversals, one infamous broken promise, plenty of tears, and host Jeff Probst's corniest-ever final entrance kept things interesting. Trivia: one contestant with a penchant for nude sunbathing ended up dating Probst after the season ended. Probst, Chris, Twila, Eliza, Chad, Scout, Julie, and Ami return for commentary on five episodes and 35 minutes of featurettes on the DVDs. --David Horiuchi
