    I did a search on it but didn't find anything.

    Has anyone seen the show?

    Which one of you is the dad?


    I haven't made it through the first show. It will be interesting to see where it goes. The guy is building a pseudo-castle. I already see a number of flaws with his plan, but it will be interesting to see if he fixes them or they gloss them over.

    It is on the National Geographic Channel.

    There is a website www.doomsdaycastledefender.com The URL resolves to a national geographic domain.

    My favorite part was when they tested the door with the AR-15 and then the tractor.

    Unless I'm completely off based, it failed the AR-15 test but they claimed it passed. :rofl:

    Yuuup, Hot daughters.

    Looked like it failed the AR15 test from my angle too.
    Instead of destroying the tractor, they could have just put it in reverse and backed it down the door... yoyo's

    That's what I said too. Ruined a good tractor, and they should have gone with at least the medium thickness steel on the draw bridge. I'm betting the guy did the show so they can get some money to finish the castle. It needs a lot of work but it is a pretty cool place. Getting the family involved to build it is a great idea for any reason, if they don't kill each other in the process.... I Wonder how much land they have there.

    To me, He seems to be more like a Beretta man than a Glock man....

    I don't understand why they did the tractor test. He said a moat was in the plans. Seems like a stupid way to sacrifice some of the resiliency in the door. I also agree they failed the AR test. What about shooting the blocks? My guess is that's a fail too. Windows in the "secret bunker"? All kinds of nonsense going on.

    The tractor test was scripted drama, nothing more....

    And I don't know that these people are actually related; I suspect they are all actors, hired for the show.

    They look too much alike to not be related. Plus the episode of Doomsday Preppers they were on about a year ago dove more into their family life before bugging out to the castle. There were more people, like boyfriends/girlfriends that went with them if I remember correctly

    Ok, somebody is building something that "looks" like a castle, that part is true. You can easily see that although it resembles a castle-like structure, its obvious that whoever is building it, was NOT trying to build a fortress. The whole fortress premise seems invented for television or at least that what my impression was after watching. The tractor things was just goofy and it nearly fell on top of him. The battering ram on the "bunker" door seems silly simply because the door only opened outward. The bunker itself is lined with windows and that one cheap door. I cant imagine how that is really a bunker?? It all just seems like stuff made up for television. I will agree that the 24 year old daughter is cute.

    They should put up a fence around the castle. Much better than the draw bridge.

    true! If they were serious they would be building a wall around it. The 12 x 10 drawbridge is just useless drama.

    I'm watching it as I type this.

    Daughters are hot.

    The dad has a lot of knowledge but makes stupid decisions and fails to actually teach his kids anything. Example-he just hands the son an AK with no instruction.

    The oldest son is clearly a hipster liberal and completely useless.

    The bunker is an absolute joke.

    The house is no where near finished and rather than blend into the environment it sticks out like a sore thumb.

    His man concern is an EMP, how does he expect all his kids to make it to the castle if vehicles are not running?

    Catapult is a waste of time and resources.
