Editorial Reviews

Extreme angler Jeremy Wade is on the hunt for freshwater fish with a taste for human flesh. This rip-roaring ride through the dark side of nature mixes action and adventure with mysteries, edge-of-the-seat chases and a battle of wills between man and almost supernatural beasts. Watch as Jeremy Wade deconstructs exactly how these river monsters are constructed to kill.

Instead they feel like they are just watching an adventure show....which it really is!

Along the way the host shows himself as having very rich onscreen character as well as extensive knowledge of the creatures he encounters.

The case came without damage, the discs also without damage, so nothing to complain about.

Ever since watching the first episode of River Monsters, I've been hooked (no pun intended). It really makes you think of what is lurking beneath the surface of the worlds oceans, rivers, and streams. The show is both educational and it will make your skin crawl!

Trust me, seeing a man nearly swallowed by a giant Amazonian Catfish, it's just down right out creepy! Anyways, below is the episodes that are included on this Season One set. This set contains all seven episodes from the first season. Season Two premieres Spring 2010!

Episode One- Piranha
- In 1976 a packed coach crashed into the Amazon killing 39 people. By the time the bodies were pulled out by rescuers some had been so viciously mutilated by piranha they could only be identified by their clothes. Tracking down survivors and eyewitnesses of piranha attacks, Jeremy Wade reveals why the piranha fills our nightmares.

Episode Two- Killer Catfish
- Two years ago, on the treacherous Kali River, high in the mountains of Northern India, Jeremy Wade unearthed the mother of all fisherman's tales and the ultimate freshwater horror: a super-sized freshwater fish turned man-eater. Jeremy takes on the biggest, toughest challenge he's ever faced as he heads back to the Himalayas to separate fact from fiction and track down the monstrous beast.

Episode Three- Alligator Gar
- In the Deep South is a river monster with the reputation of a devil. Blamed for a series of violent attacks on humans, this creature is said to be as vicious as a shark and as big as an alligator. The authorities said it should be annihilated, but not all are so quick to condemn it. Extreme angler Jeremy Wade heads to Texas on its trail in an attempt to uncover the facts behind this animal's notoriety.

I must start by saying I rarely view Animal Planet shows on tv. I was intrigued by the cover of this series when I saw it at the store and decided to purchase it after reading the few reviews posted right here on Amazon. Let me tell you, I am not disappointed in the slightest! This series and its host Jeremy Wade provide some of the most entertaining and memorable video in a nature series I have seen in years.

Each episode runs approximately 41 minutes. This season contains 8 episodes in total (1 of which the dvd says is a "bonus episode" even though it is in the main menu). I hope future seasons will contain a bit more content, even though this is well worth the price for a 1st season.

As for the show itself, the video footage is superb. Jeremy Wade sets up each episode in roughly the same fashion. He describes local legends, historical events and eyewitness accounts centering around the species of the episode. Thereafter he travels to the region and begins to research the actual events - usually going as far as finding the ACTUAL people involved in the legends. Mythbusters has actually dealt with a few of the events....but this is NOWHERE near as fascinating as when Jeremy actually finds the people to whom the event occurred and then brings them back to the site it happened at. Along the way the host shows himself as having very rich onscreen character as well as extensive knowledge of the creatures he encounters. After establishing possible theories as to what creature is responsible for the attacks, he begins to fish the rivers. Usually he meets with failure the first few times, and turns to local fishermen and other experts to refine his fishing method. Jeremy is a highly skilled professional angler...

River Monsters is an absolute blast. Jeremy Wade is a fantastic host who stops at nothing to land the biggest fish he can. The first season is a great introduction to Wade's adventures. Even those who don't enjoy fishing are likely to find River Monsters an entertaining show. As a fisherman myself, I am envious of Wade's job. I can watch these episodes over and over and not be bored at all.

I would recommend this series to anyone interested in naturalist documentaries. Wade is intelligent, well-informed, clearly experienced and very well spoken. He is obviously not primarily a showman nor does he overly dramatize the expeditions. Yet there is always a gratifying sense of mystery and a touch of suspense unfolding. He very much lives up to his self described role as "extreme angler".

My son is 8 and is going to be stoked to receive this for Christmas. He is totally fascinated with fishing and the real-life adventures Jeremy Wade encounters. The video footage is awesome, amazing, entertaining and educational. So glad I found it on DVD!

After searching for piranhas online, I've gotten hooked on watching this. I'll recommend this, simply because its interesting, educational, and makes you more aware that there is more to the fish itself. If anything, I'm hoping to watch Season 3 soon, or wait for the DVD for it to come out.
