In a historic special edition of "Running Wild with Bear Grylls," Bear takes President Barack Obama on an adventure in the Alaskan wilderness. We will see the Commander in Chief as we've never seen before, as the two men traverse a dense forest and walk across a glacial outwash at Alaska's famed Exit Glacier, where they observe the remarkable effects of climate change first hand. From wild salmon and catkins tea made with melting glacial water to s'mores, Bear gives the President a true taste of Alaska. Their off-the-script chat reveals the President's thoughts on his official duties, family life at the White House, parenthood and his own faith.

Efron and Grylls--who manages to be personable in all his series, even when he's rappelling down an ice cliff in the Antarctic while being pursued by a mob of angry emperor penguins--do, in fact, make a good team, and a fun one to hang out with for an hour, too.Newsday Full Review
