I am obsessed with this show and I hope I can see the next season very very very very soon!

Far from it, they actually show more wisdom than humans even (certainly more than Japanese whale killers).
Brian
Seriously this is just ignorance and for people to keep feeling good about what they are doing.

As with the rest of the series, the storyline is not predictable; twists and unexpected turns hold the viewer's attention. This is tamper-free realism. The crews of the three vessels under Watson's command become family to each other, and, frankly, to the loyal viewer. Sail on, Paul Watson, and save those defenseless, majestic whales!

Whale Wars is not fictional. The series details the harrowing adventures experienced by people who voluntarily risk their lives to save whales from illegal slaughter by the Japanese fishing industry.Very highly recommended!

Japanese whale killers do not understand that whales and dolphins are some of the most intelligent creatures on this planet. It is only our lack of understanding that makes us look at them as "animals". Far from it, they actually show more wisdom than humans even (certainly more than Japanese whale killers).

Japan has a tricky relationship with the ocean; perhaps if they stopped treating it as their hunting ground, where most fascinating beings are slaughtered, the gods of oceans may smile on them and stop the next tsunami...

For those who want to hate that is fine your entitled to your opinion but seriously this is a good show. With damaged oceans and extinction this will affect the human race directly. Animals are not resources they are beings like you and me. Humans obviously relate to humans but that does not mean we should not care for fellow beings. Animals are not expendable commodities. Seriously this is just ignorance and for people to keep feeling good about what they are doing. The show rocks! I will keep watching the seasons.

I don't understand how they can become frightened from a breach in their hull when they should have expected and prepaired for the worst especially in a boat with a hull integrity such as theirs. I would never have put a fiberglass boat in hurricane swells. I don't understand how they cannot truly know Paul Watson is serious about "Give your life for a whale."

I definitely recommend this product. I overall like this season very much looking forward for the next one. This is on going situation and battle that many activist are going for. I definitely support each of their campaign, and hopefully one day i will be able to join Paul Watson and his crew to help the overall battle that Japan has set against our mother nature. Fear for them as Japan once again wants to make things more difficult in our own history....
