  3. I miss watching Discovery Channel. Naaalala ko noong elementary & highschool days usong uso ang cable subscription at bukod sa Cartoon Network, pinaka favorite ko talaga Discovery Channel. Nakakaexcite manood at daming matututunan. Maganda for sure panoorin yung First Man Out by Explorer Ed Stafford. Lalo na nasa wild sya.

  4. I love to watch ‘Man vs. Wild’, and now it is ‘Running Wild with Bear Grylls’ because I am learning a lot from it. How to survive, the tips and tricks, as well as knowing the other celebrities surviving in the wild. It is a lot of action, instinct, and expertise. This is the show that I want my child to watch and be hooked into as well.

    And, this 2019 I am so excited to watch Ed Stafford on ‘First Man Out’. I am having thrills and goose bumps now!

  5. How It’s Made is the show that I love to watch on Discovery Channel. With this, I am learning a lot and always wondered because the stuff that we are using everyday, or seeing everyday, and the like are revealed how it’s made and I love it. It is like resolving mysteries, and unwrapping things to the open!

    My daughter loves this show too and I really wanted to have more of it as we want to learn more!

    This 2019, I am excited to watch ‘First Man Out’, I know that this time we will learn more about survival. So head on to Discovery Channel too!
