What to watch this week: 'Outlander' premieres, Ben Stiller is on 'Running Wild With Bear Grylls'
Running Wild With Bear Grylls might just be our favorite new summer show.
In Monday's episode, Bear (not his real name) travels to Northern Scotland with actor Ben Stiller for adventure on the Isle of Skye. Bear gets Stiller, who admits he's never even been camping before, to traverse the sides of foggy mountains, fly on the outside of a helicopter and scale a rock wall above a churning body of water. "I don't know why I'm doing this," Stiller says at the beginning the episode. "I thought it'd be a good way to see if it's real or not." Well, it certainly looks real. At one point, Stiller talks about all the releases he had to sign, and Bear just laughs in his face.
Plus, it's the only place on TV you can hear famous actors saying things like "Tell me something about the ferns, Bear."
