The new reality series Naked and Afraid (Discovery, Sundays) drops two contestants, man and woman, into the wilderness without clothes. Or food or shelter. But the nakedness is the selling point—no?—even if editing provides fig leaves. In the premiere the pair end up wretched and muddy after 21 days. This is less interesting than I’d hoped. Sort of like Adam and Eve after an especially tough work week.
