Whale Wars

Is the admissions requirement for crew to simply be able to SUCK ( a lolly ) ?

is it just me that thinks that they have loads of time available to them in order to actually practice launching the ribs, but in fact choose not to? god knows theyve cocked it up enough times when they havent been rushing!
well kitted out organisation, but paul watson shows lack of leadership skills, and peter brown wants drowning.

And another thing, why do they spend weeks hunting around for that processing ship? Surely it must appear on AIS as legally required?

But then the TV wouldn't have the drama and tension See "monty Halls" post in other stuff. Just another way of making what is essentially boring tv mildy interesting. Lets face it, if the crew weren't so incompetent, nobody would watch.

Not seen that. I assume it involves some big waves in the North Sea as opposed to an old bloke sitting on a cool box full of lager by a flooded sand pit and showing his grandson how to put a maggot on a hook?

for me, it would be my Granddaughter in another couple of years time. Better than joining the crew of The Steve irwin and the other lot on Whale wars... they probably drink green tea and are all vegans, so fish would be off the menu
