NOTHING BRINGS A FAMILY TOGETHER LIKE ARMAGEDDON

Castles have been hailed throughout history as the ultimate homes for kings and noblemen, shielding them from invasion by neighboring enemies. But for American prepper Brent Sr., this relic of medieval times represents survival if his greatest fear comes true — an electromagnetic pulse (EMP), where the power grid completely fails, plunging the country (and eventually the world) into chaos. He’s hoping his castle, the ultimate bunker, will protect his family if disaster strikes.  But first he has to bring them together to complete the castle … if they don’t destroy each other first!

Tonight’s premiere of the all-new series Doomsday Castle marks the first true spin-off series in network history following the incredible popularity of Doomsday Preppers. Brent Sr. is summoning his children to finish the construction of his enormous, only half-completed castle isolated deep in the Carolina mountains in an undisclosed location. And he’s determined to test their survival skills to find out if they each have what it takes to survive the coming apocalypse.

But the apocalypse might shy in comparison to this clash of characters as they try to live and work together to fulfill their father’s dream of completing the castle.  Meet the family who hope to survive when the lights go out: 

Brent Sr.Brent Sr. This former infantryman is turning his attention toward prepping — and protecting his family — by expending all of his energy on building an EMP-proof medieval castle in an undisclosed location deep in the Carolina woods. Brent Sr. wants to impart his knowledge to his children and help them develop their own survival skillsets to carry on his legacy — even after the end of days. 

 

AshleyAshleyThe 24-year-old girly girl of the clan loves fashion and makeup, and dreams of becoming a model, actress or singer-songwriter. This former bartender seems an unlikely choice for a prepper, but she’s relentlessly ambitious, adaptable and willing to get dirty.  

 

 

LindseyLindseyTwenty-two-year-old Lindsey dreams of becoming a success in business, like her father. Lindsey, a self-proclaimed prepper, knows the basics of wilderness survival — including fishing and identifying edible and medicinal plants. Though she and sister Ashley are close in age, the two have never gotten along and are relentlessly competitive. 

 

Dawn-MarieDawn MarieIf the family had a designated warrior, it would be the outdoorsy Dawn Marie. The 20-year-old is tough — both physically and mentally ­— and feels most at home when she’s out in the wilderness. Dawn Marie has a similar constitution to Brent Sr. and believes that the end of times is near, and will fight for survival by any means necessary.   

 

MichaelMichaelMichael is the twin brother of Dawn Marie and the only child to have contributed regularly to building the castle. Michael is hardworking, loyal and close to Brent Sr. Like Dawn Marie, he is comfortable in the outdoors, is capable at orienteering and is skillful at hunting with the bow and arrow. Over the years, he has tried to differentiate himself from his siblings by learning construction skills to help Brent Sr.  

 

Brent IIBrent IIThis gruff 42-year-old, the oldest of Brent Sr.’s children, is estranged from the entire family. His confrontational nature has created conflict between him and his younger siblings over the years. Brent is an entrepreneur who has problems working with others. He views the challenge of preparing for an EMP disaster and prepping the castle as a chance to prove his worth as firstborn son.

 

 

Watch Clip: Welcome to the Castle:

 

Tonight at 10p on Doomsday Castle: Before the Flood, The children arrive to help Brent Sr. finish building his doomsday castle, and are shocked at the conditions of the bunker. The first tasks are building a drawbridge for the front door and cleaning out the bunker, where the family will live during construction. But before they begin, Brent Sr. unleashes a surprise attack by “marauders” intent on storming the castle. All of the kids are forced to surrender, proving to Brent Sr. and themselves how unprepared they are in the face of a security threat. The family spends the first night together in the bunker, and Brent Sr. serves up meals-ready-to-eat (MREs), much to everyone’s dismay. Once the drawbridge is completed, Brent II stages his own surprise attack and tests the strength of the drawbridge with homemade battering rams that he designed himself — will the drawbridge hold up or will it splinter and provide no defense for the family?

Feeling inspired? Try your own hand at being king or queen of the castle with the Doomsday Castle Defender game, where you can create your very own fortress and test it against bandits.

And Don’t Miss Doomsday Castle, Tonight at 10 PM ET/PT on the National Geographic Channel.

    agreed, my initial impression is of a typically dysfunctional tribe with sibling competitive issues. BRENTS INITIAL PREMISE IS SOUND..any major disaster will bring this increasingly touchy feely socialist incomptent government to its knees, followed by a flurry of confiscatory activity FROM those who have TO those who havent bothered , to be followed by ever increasing chaos, esp in proximity to the red state urban locales as notions of private property will evaporate like water vapor. everyone will be resonsible for their own and their family’s security , while the urban elites will hunker down behind paid security and the rest of us will be up for grabs,,, perhaps AMERICA MIGHT ACTUALLY LEARN SOMETHING FROM BRENT and his family..I wish them well.

    This is the best new comedy I’ve seen! The nearly 15 year old ‘castle’ that is really just a shell with a crappy ‘bunker’ beneath that has a very visible door exiting it makes a great centerpiece for stupidity. The fact that the trees soround it providing cover, fuel and a means to shoot into it from a higher platform is wonderfully overlooked by their inept father. Why is this idiot storing his garbage in the bunker?!?!
    He carries out a ridiculous ‘test’ on his kids by having 50 armed people raid them after they walk in the door. He’s lucky I wasn’t there. My father, the Lord Humungus -the ayatollah of rock-and-rollah, taught me to always be armed and kill anything that threatens. I would have slaughtered these fools.
    His son’s are idiots. incapable of working with common tools or devising weapons to protect or take down a castle. -Where are the flamethrowers to defend it? My father, The Humungus, would have that castle taken in minutes!
    Now his daughters…I will take this castle and keep them as my pretty pets, pleasure slaves and breeding stock. Where in NC is this located…oh wait, I have google maps. I can locate it easily. See you soon.

    Someone that OBVIOUSLY has had the financial resources to develop a truly defensible post apocalyptic haven for his family should have a little more foresight. His assertion of US military experience in the context of his “prepping” seems to be a pretty sorry endorsement. With all the wide open windows, the “castle” seems to have been designed with some princess (ex-wife?) rather than defensibility in mind. The architecture implies that wide open views of the mountainside are far more important than defense. I guess it’s fortuitous that he has some very good looking daughters that are willing to help him capitalize on the cultural environment we find ourselves in. Too bad that in the REAL world, having sexy daughters means you need more security rather than more exposure. Especially during the “End of Days”… Hope he can use his new found gain$$$ to provide REAL security for his family,

    I’m not interested in Survival as a game! What a great place to find sympathetic contributors to a similar scale project! For those preceding “analysts” above, these are lifetime scale projects. On the scale of Acres or Sections. Dollars and Dollars. Stuff and Stuff. Of available materials and resources. They are works in progress. Probably pulled off best, as a group project. Brent has a quasi-easily available like minded group. Could be hard to assemble a like minded group in a semi-remote place, isolated from “civilization” . There are as many choices as to how to manage all this, as there are preppers or people. Just as the “why” of being prepared is quite variable. Preparation is on a total continuum, from putting your shoes on for each of your days work/survival, and your “edc”, to preparing for a possible catastrophic, long term, global, Apocalypse. This continuum also includes the sphere of the survival; is it your body, your house, your vehicle, your neighborhood, your community, your city, your county, your country, your government, or your spaceship earth? Do we have to survive this blood loss, this incident, this day, this week, or this ad infinitum? Survival is a state of mind and is as variable as people’s minds. Preparation is a compromise of attitude, economy, utility, availability, time, location, skills, numbers, experience, training, adaptability and flexibility, and the summation of what is each person’s life. A “castle” sized, group survival project like this is a major undertaking, over a lifetime, which is probably beyond the analysis of the previous contributors here, and would only have value to others, who are equally serious about “prepping”. As I grow older, I begin to think that Homo Sapiens is very audacious in thinking that HE might end our ride on this earth, before Mother Nature does, or before The Almighty ends it all! The “Hollywood” entertainment appeal, is in this program as a hook for education of the open minded, no matter what their survival attitude or IQ. Of course, I, have my own version of that daily continuum of survival, and my own Apocalyptic Survival Compound, here in the Western Mojave!

    The draw bridge needs to be built differently. The 5.56mm almost went all the way though the 3” oak. I don’t know what ammo he was using but I will guaranty you a SS109 penetrator 5.56mm round will penetrate the draw bridge. And .308 rounds will defiantly. You need to build the draw bridge like we built the bullet traps at my gun club. Build two sides out of two inch oak with a four to six inch gap between the sides filled with ground up (chunks) of car tires. Put boards at top and bottom with another board running diagonally from cornier to cornier to tie it all together on both sides this will keep the draw bridge from bowing in the middle. And you shouldn’t have use any steel reducing the weight. The bullet traps at my gun club have stopped everything from a 9mm to a .300 Winchester magnum.

    So much confidence in a front door that would easily come down in about 15 min with a couple of wrenches on the bolts nuts they left exposed on the door hinge. And if they wanted a real fortress, why is the castle overloaded with windows? This family might survive 20 min. Good luck!

    So, I watched one episode of this show and realized how big of a waste of time it was. This has got to be one of the worst shows I’ve ever seen on this channel. I hope for the family’s sake, that this was completely scripted — all that it would take is one RPG (which in a doomsday scenario, the public would actually be able to obtain) to destroy that makeshift “castle” they built. Wow.. NatGEO.. wow. Oh yea.. one of the more laughable parts? They put windows on the first floor of their castle. Perhaps they should have invested some time into researching just how castles were fortified.

    These people are domed. Let’s see, where to start? The drawbridge. The steel should have been on the INSIDE, and 3/16 to 1/4 thick. Why? The 3″ thick Oak would shatter an incoming round, dissipating some of the energy. Even a .50 might not penetrate. AS you saw, the .308 round went right through the steel, and splintered the oak. An army trainer should know this. Second, the hinges. They are on the OUTSIDE. Wrong. Give me 5 minutes and an Oxy torch, that thing is down. Finally, there should have been an “X” brace across the oak planks.

    As for the bunker…. a RAT? That means there is a HOLE. The inside is filthy and unfinished, much less disorganized. The food buckets the girls stored under the floorboards were dirty,and there was mud on the 55 gallon water drums. They aren’t going to have to worry about being attacked. There will be six people dead from disease in an unlocked bunker with ground level glass windows.

    As for the castle…. 14 years? This guy has been at the this for 14 years? “Dear National Geo: If oyu will purchase the materials and the location, I’ll build the castle and bumker to this point and better in 14 weeks”.

    I don’t believe this is real. I think it is a bunch of marginal actors, and some really ignorant writers. Probably the same folks who convinced Discovery Channel to do “Megalodon” as a documentary.

    The father’s an idiot. He’d have saved a lot of time by studying all the mistakes of midieval and Crusader castles. No square corner, cleared territory for sightlines, arrow slits for windows, etc. Plus his solar array is sitting out in the open; I could take that out with a freaking slingshot! A guy with 4 years in the military knows tactics, but not the intricacies of strategy and he really shows it.

    Just how did this guy make it on the network? He’s just clueless.

    This show is a joke. What screwball designed this castle, and think it is remotely defenseable against any modern firearms and explosives? First of all, where is the Redoubt? Nothing but hope, to keep attackers from getting right up to the exterior walls. And what the hell is up with all those HUGE windows? I don’t give a dang what you think you are going to put over them, a little TNT is going to blow a hole you can drive a truck through? Besides the Redoubt, where the hell is the Sallyport? You think that flimsy butt drawbridge is going to last against a sustained attack!!??? Yeah right. And the oldest sons “TEST” on his exterior door. What fricking MORON is going to try to batter IN an OUTSWING DOOR!!!??? This is REALLY lame crap Nat Geo.

    The catapult is the best part. What a monumental waste of time and effort. Great weapon a thousand years ago against large massed armies that you can see coming from miles away but totally useless in today’s world in this setting. They’re completely surrounded by woods, so they’d never know where to aim it and wouldn’t even know anybody was approaching until they were right there at the castle and too close for the catapult to be used.

    Seriously… I hope to God I’m the one taken out by the zombies. WHY would you want to live through Armageddon? Is Nat Geo desperate for a story, or what? A suggestion, take it or leave it, televise a story with substance like the warming (or cooling) of our planet, how many polar bears still exist in the North Pole. Go back to your old school roots. Do you remember the Nat Geo magazine which actually had substance(something you would want to read)? And WHY are you showing meth addicts shooting up? This type of TRASH is only influencing our youth, not educating our youth. Think about it!

You are perched on top of hill for all to see and your fortified walls say, come get me, I have things I’m protecting you want. This castle would fall in a matter of days of an onslaught. No protection here. DO NOT ADVERTISE what you have. Gawd this is stupid.

    you know what, you people need to settle down with the negatives…What you should be doing, is trying to think of what could they do to HELP what they have now…. not scream at them LIKE FRICKING 2 YEAR OLD! Example, the door, yea, the bullet penetrated through, but you know what, think of it this way, they need to build up their defense, what they should do is put TWO sheets of ATLEASET 1,5 inch thick steel on both sides, of the wood. and out multiple rods of 1 inch thick rods in the wood. then, use the engine on one of tractors as a motor for the draw bridge to be lifted much quicker than by hand. Then, with the catapult, take the engine, and lower it just a bit more, also strengthen the throwing arm with long metal strips on the sides or top and bottom. Now that YOU PEOPLE know on HOW TO CALM THE HELL DOWN, realize, THAT IS REALITY! they are doing what they can AT THE MOMENT with what they CAN FIND. So, why don’t you keep your panties out of a bunch, and live with what they can do AT THE MOMENT. Also, you are making your self supid by even critisizing them. why do YOU go and try to do what these guys are doing, Half of america is FRICKING FAT!! so GET OFF YOUR LAZY ASS and MOVE IT fattass..

    The “Doomsday Castle” is not a real fort. That guy just conned his kids in to finishing his house. Castle designs like that went out in the Middle Ages. There are too many dead spots along the base of the walls where the defenders have to lean over the walls to shoot at the attackers. Leaning out over the walls makes defenders easy pickings for snipers. There are also too many windows. Let me tell you about fort building. I do know a lot about obsolete military tactics. First look at the Old Spanish fort in St. Augustine to see what a real fort should look like:http://kids.britannica.com/elementary/art-90392This is a Vauban type fort, the standard for about 200 years. It is what replaced the castles when guns came in. Notice that with pointed corners every part of the wall is covered from some other part of the wall. Look at the V shape in front of it. That’s the gatehouse. If you are in front of that gatehouse you are in crossfire and if you are behind it you are still in crossfire. If you do break in you are in a kill box, taking fire from all the interior walls. The distance from the tip of one pointed corner to the nearest wall is the effective range of your guns. The outer moat once had earth mounds all around so you could not get a direct shot at the walls with cannon. The cannons on the walls could still fire at about all they see. It is take able, but you need a complicated siege to do it. With modern weapons you can hit it with indirect fire, then you have to have hard roofs. Look at Ft. Vaux, from WWI to see that. OK so how do you take the TV Doomsday Castle ? You do it with cannon. You don’t need a tank, just simple artillery will do. Look here at two civil war cannon and a home brew job that could all make Swiss cheese out of “Doomsday Castle”: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iTye9JuOhSkThere is also an episode of R. Lee Army’s “Lock and Load” Where he had Civil War Re enactors put 3-inch holes in a cinderblock wall from across a field. Heck the 100 years war ended when the French King got cannons and quickly knocked out all the English castles in his territory. There are lots of these things around. You can make one pretty easy if you know what you are doing. OK for the sake of argument say that you don’t have cannon. Then you have to go old school. Get a shield about the size of a two car garage door, heavily reinforced. Put it on a frame so it can roll and tilt up and down. Get a crew with picks and shovels, water food and small arms. They will push and carry the shield to one of those dead spots on the wall. The leading edge will be down on the approach then they will tilt it up so it is leaning on the wall. The defenders can’t shoot at them direct and they are protected from anything they throw over the walls. Then they dig. They throw the earth out to the sides of the shield for additional cover. Soon they will be in a trench next to the wall. They will mine till they are under the wall foundations. They work under the tower corners till it falls. If it is a big job then a trench is dug right up to the shield to relieve the workers and perhaps to bring in explosives. When the tower id down you rush the place. Moats were invented to prevent undermining like that. Look at Caerlaverock castle to see a real place where something like that happened. It was a triangle, which is a terrible design. You can see it on the current Doomsday castle site. See how they went for one corner first? I don’t want to know what happened to the defenders after that. OK so happy apocalypse! I’d say get artillery and learn how to use it to survive. I have not yet seen a prepper fort yet that would not be a death trap, particularly the ones made from cargo containers. A fort is a way for a small number of people to hold back a larger group till help can arrive. Any other plan is eventual suicide. Look at Harlech Castle. The Welsh held out against the English for eight years, and then fell. The Welsh National Anthem, “Men of Harlech” tells the story. Heck, look at the Lord of the Rings movies where they tried to defend “Helm’s Deep”. Unless you have help coming avoid putting yourself in that situation. That means you have a network of alliances with other forts nearby. Alliances depend on politics, which can shift around fast depending on family feuds, etc. Welcome back to the Middle Ages. It will be, as the British say, “Incredibly gritty”.

    After reading all these other comments which appear to be 99 out of 100 Con against this Program, Network,(Nat. Geo.), and this here family, I can only ask; Where do I begin when almost everybody else has hit the nail on the head. I’ m glad to see I’ m not the only person that sees that “Reality TV” isn’ t! It should now be called “Real Ham TV”. The need for revenue, or the desire to be famous, (if only in our own eyes) has us falling victim to that dreaded illness called Andy Warhols 15 minutes of Fame itus. Repeated exposure to TV Cameras causes massive head swelling and swollen Egos. Usually followed by an Edifice Complex. The only possible treatment or cure seams to be when these new “Ham sters or Ham stars” read enough of these comments from their detractors and go out and find real lives. In our opinion, We the Rating and Revealing Reality Reporters believe this had something to do with the Discoveries Group moving from the Nations Capitol and being lured to New York by the Professional Paid Liars of Madison Ave. who are selling products to the mindless Simian Regressive Occupants of the Planet of the Apes. Planetary Regressive Progression or maybe Progressive Regression? As aforementioned by the other Commentators, the Ed.TV Networks sold us out and added more premium channels so if we wanted to see “Real’ shows, we would have to fork out more money. And now in summation, my Earth-Dwelling Friends, as for the fact there is no Mammie in this Clan of Nofe Cataline uh Hillbillies, weez is all inbread and marries our own relatives when things is “HARD”!!! No need to thank me. I was sent to your Planet to help you to survive yourselves and I’ ll be here all Millennium.

    I tried to keep an open mind before I saw this show. I generally love Nat Geo & feel like it’s one of the few decent channels left on TV. But honestly, this show is just stupid. It’s so fixed that it can’t really even be called reality tv. Second of all, the cast just isn’t all that interesting. While I think they are trying to be serious about prepping it just comes off as bad acting. Not to mention-if the world comes to an end why would someone want to survive so they can live a few more months knowing everyone else is dead? Sorry Nat Geo; I tried, I really did…but this show is just stupid.

    Like all “reality” TV it’s just too staged to believe anything. Two of the girls get dropped out in the woods and are supposed to work together to make it back. The one bails on the other in the middle of the night and makes it back in time to be asleep in her bed by the time everybody else wakes up. Yet, the other one who has the compass and all the directions takes the entire next day making it back in the daylight. We see her going up steep hillsides and going over all kinds of obstacles that would impossible to overcome in the pitch dark.
