Storyline

It's quite possible your idea of fun isn't wrestling alligators. Well, that's the kind of thinking keeping the Gator Boys, Paul and Jimmy, busy! They're two fearless peas in a pod, and they've become Florida's go-to guys when locals find themselves crossing paths with deadly 1,000-pound reptiles in shocking locations like master bedrooms, swimming pools or outdoor cafés! The goal of 'Gator Boys Alligator Rescue' is for the team to capture nuisance gators with their bare hands and move them to safety before trappers, who kill and sell the animals for their skin and meat, get to them.

An educational and entertaining show with its heart in the right place. What more could you ask for?
26 August 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Television today is in a bad place. Awful, exploitative reality shows like American Gypsy, American Guns, and The Devil's Ride clog up formerly educational channels like National Geographic and Discovery Channel with exaggerated and offensive stereotypes. It's rare to see a show that actually aims to inform the audience about something, hosted by honest and real people who want to get the news of their cause and public service out. Gator Boys is exactly that, and it's one of the best shows on television in years.

The Gator Boys (and girls) offer a much-needed service in Florida: removing "nuisance gators," alligators that have found their way into populated areas and need to be removed. Paul and Jimmy, world-class gator wrestlers, carefully and patiently handle the animals with their bare hands, using a delicate and precise method to wear the gators out and safely haul them off without anyone getting hurt.

Just watching these guys take on 10-foot, 500-pound animals without any trace of fear in their eyes is enough entertainment to carry the show, but Gator Boys offers more than that. It's important to understand that normal gator trappers charge fees to remove the gators and usually kill them to make handbags or boots. These guys get the gators out of harm's way for free and keep them in a safe, well-managed facility and eventually release them back into the wild. The fact that they care about the gators and are clearly in this line of work to protect the gators just as much as protecting the people who run into them. Just watching Paul affectionately calling a recently-captured gator "Bubba" and gently lifting it off the ground after it tried to kill him, you can really see that he understands this animal like it's another human being, and holds it in the same high regard.

That's what really makes this show a success. It's about treating the animals right and teaching the viewers about them. It's not a bunch of angry rednecks shouting at each other for an hour like most reality shows are these days. It's the kind of thing Animal Planet and channels like it need more of: a show about animals, plain and simple.

Why this show barely has a 6.0 rating is beyond me. I honestly can't see how anyone could not like it. If you support education and entertainment in one hour-long package, check this show out and boost the rating! And also check out Call of the Wildman, which is another great show for many of the same reasons.
