If you like learning about and seeing new types of fish that can eat you alive this is the show to watch.

I love watching this show with my entire family, normally we record it in our DVR and then sit together to watch on Sunday nights.

River Monsters continues to exceed my expectations into its 3rd season. If you have never seen an episode in the past, prepare for hours of enthralling entertainment. If you are already a fan, know that Season 3 doesn't change its winning formula.

At its heart, River Monsters is a nature program dedicated to unravelling the mysteries of the world's largest or most dangerous fresh water species. However, some of the real magic comes from its minimal yet cohesive narrative structure related to personal encounters from indigenous people. Jeremy Wade serves as both narrator and host, often bridging the gap between local legend and the remarkable truths of reality. Possessing immense angling skills offset by down-to-earth approachability, a flair for adventure and an unquenchable thirst for knowledge, he continually garners as much interest as the creature on the end of his line.

Perhaps my favorite part about River Monsters is that the program is entirely aware of the dangers that exist outside of the water when traveling to different continents. Jeremy Wade is always very culturally aware, and often has to tread thin lines when investigating animals in extreme locations. He is always eager to seek local knowledge, respect tradition and utilize the assistance of the community. When speaking to those who have suffered loss or injury he is sympathetic, yet composed and persevering.

For example, one new episode tries to unravel two Japanese legends - the Kappa and the Namazu. Jeremy travels throughout a huge portion of Japan to visit shrines and speak to experts about the underlying foundations of each myth. Then he goes into the wild to locate and catch the most likely creatures they represent.

So many creatures we've never seen before. I'm glad it wasn't me though; far too dangerous. Jeremy must love his work

I love this one, though I do not eat fish, or even fish at all. (I like mine in an aquarium) What's good about this is that 1: Dr. Wade is a character, and he's focused on his goal. They stay with that, even if there are some interesting side issues or trips. We LEARN about the fish, (and non-true fish) and what makes them the fish they are. We learn why, for example, a harmless member of the piranha family turns deadly. We learn how man impacts the life under water. We learn, that what it takes to uncover a mystery is not at all 'glamorous', and Dr. Wade proves it. Who else is a big name fisherman that would spend twenty days or more getting malaria and fighting fungus and ants and eating bad food? No outside communications, (OK, maybe a sat phone, that may or may not work in a wet, humid jungle environment, with all the trees above), for the most part, there is no 'rescue' at the drop of a hat. Crew or no, they are often FAR away from help, and must rely on wits, locals, and luck, as well as each other. In fact, the crew can be a liability, and often is. Locals get suspicious sometimes, as was the case in Columbia...
But in the end, this is mostly about dispelling, or confirming, myths and legends of fishy stories. Sometimes, the truth is far more than the stories. Sometimes, not so much. It's the journey, more than the destination that makes this series well worth watching. I'd recommend it without reservation. Sadly, like everything I like, it's seems, we've seen the last of them. I hope they prove me wrong. But the Loch Ness Monster? That's the grand daddy of all fishy stories! And Dr. Wade tackles it! And it has the feeling of a grand finale. Dr. Wade already retired once. I think he's just done so again, and he's earned it. Do you know how many times he's had malaria?

I enjoy watching shows where I can learn things as well as be entertained, and for some reason I've always been fascinated by ugly and/or enormous fish. Strange, but true. I like seeing Jeremy's travels and learning things as he learns them, seeing the villages and the villagers with his eyes, and I really love his unabashed love and appreciation of nature and all things in it. His voice is also very easy to listen to, low and mellow, so it doesn't intrude like some shows I've watched, it seems like it belongs there, telling you the story.

I originally hesitated to buy this DVD as I needed a last minute Christmas gift. In the end, I placed an order 5 days before Christmas. I was so impressed that I received it in time for Christmas. Not only did a get the last minute Christmas gift I also bought a set for my own movie collection. I would recommend the entire series if you are considering even 1 of the DVD's. This is a great family show for all ages or for the fisherman that dreams big, everyone can enjoy this documentary filled with action and adventure.
