    PIECE OF CRAP. All about tree-hugging hippies ruining the Japanese economy. That's all they do. Ruin the JAPANESE, no one else. America was whaling before. Besides, whales are delicious and so are dolphins. The only part I liked was when he got arrested. That's the only part I cheered for. Get a real job and stop mooching off TV shows. How blunt and intolerant are you all. Respect them.

    If you like Jersey Shore you will love Whale Wars because they are essentially the same exact show. Paul Watson is The Situation, Peter is Vinny, you get the idea. Both shows are about people who are completely full of themselves, wrapped up with one cause (alcohol,sex / whales) and lacking brain matter. You find yourself watching the show mesmerized and unable to turn it off but question your own sanity for not changing it. I love whales, but the Sea Shepherd cast and crew consistently prove that they are completely unprepared for any given task. It is sheer luck that they are alive. Same for Jersey Shore, it is simply luck that they make it home. Back stabbing, lies and cult like pressure within the crew are the skeleton of both of these shows. Expand

  1. Yet despite the distraction of its media grooming, the basic story of Whale Wars is quite a yarn.
  2. The result will be more fascinating to those already invested in this sort of conservation issue than to the casual viewer, who may find the journey tough going and the nuances of the whole whaling question a little dense.

    Whatever you might think of the group’s beliefs and belligerence, these sailors give great sound bites.
