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 people doing good things, but lacks excitement.
30 June 2012 | by See all my reviews

I really do appreciate what these people are doing for the benefit of the whales, but the show is completely lacking of excitement. The crew seems like they sometimes have absolutely NO idea what they're supposed to do, and they end up falling back to their captain who just sits there writing poems. And to add onto all of this, they have the WORST of luck, which makes the show that more unwatchable. The only thing that this show has going for it is the way these people are actually doing something about the whaling industry in Japan. If you are looking for another documentary style show, I would recommend 'The Deadliest Catch'.
