Storyline

Steve Irwin and his wife Terri run a wildlife refuge in Australia which houses many of the continent's most dangerous animals, including the much feared crocodile and numerous venomous snakes. Steve's speciality is the capture and relocation of crocs that have ventured too close to populated areas. Steve prefers to use ropes, sticks and his brute strength to catch the crocs.

Everyone's waiting for that one time...
3 June 2001 | by (Upstate New York) – See all my reviews

The Crocodile Hunter, aka Steve Irwin, has to be the craziest man on Earth. In any given episode, you'll see him trapping pissed off crocs, holding highly venomous snakes by the tail as he points out their colorations, or just feeding the inhabitants of the Queensland Zoo by dangling a chicken leg inches from their tooth filled maws.

Half of the show's appeal is the knowledge he displays with each animal he finds, explaining everything he knows about them to the camera. The other half is watching as he stares down some creature, hoping this is the time he gets bitten or eaten, knowing that if it happens, his last words will be, "Crickey! Keep the camera rolling, and...." The best moments so far have been the numerous close calls, from crocs attacking the camera, to being sprayed down by spitting cobras. More interactive than any given National Geographic special, he risks life and limb each episode, all because he loves his job so much. In my opinion, this show is better than some unknown dude sitting half a mile away watching a lion eat a zebra. You know Steve would be kneeling a few yards away, smiling to the camera. That's why he's the best host on any nature show. I rate this show 8/10, and I'll keep watching until the day he gets too close.
