Storyline

This stunning and dangerous limited series spotlights both the controversial Japanese whaling trade and the tactics that the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society and its staff and volunteers use to cripple it. Aboard the Motor Yacht "Steve Irwin" the group seeks out the Japanese whaling fleet and then uses it's Delta Zodiac, helicopter, and other innovative techniques to enforce the law, including close-quarters ship-to-ship contact, to disable and/or sink the Japanese whaling ships in the fight to enforce international laws on the high seas where law enforcement is minimal or non-existent. The successful confrontations disrupt whale carcass processing and disperse the fleet of whaling vessels. Written by Robert G. Case

Good entertainment and good political statement!
18 January 2013 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

The reason this series is so poorly rated, is that there are a lot of users who strenuously object to the idea of a group like Sea Shepherd being presented as heroes. And indeed, the Sea Shepherd Conservation Society are the heroes of this show, while the whalers are the bad guys. There's no getting around it.

But if, like me, this does not bother you in the slightest, then I highly recommend viewing this.

The narrative and the mise-en-scene are brilliantly done. That is to say that the editing and the way events are presented is good story telling.

The photography of the show is also quite superb. There are images of massive ice bergs, huge ships being tossed around in great storms.

And the show is also accurately named. Even though nobody is killed, it is a war. Every season brings a new escalation in the conflict, new weapons, tactics and tricks by both Sea Shepherd and the whalers.
