Luv, Luv, Luv this series. I have purchased every season. Enjoy seeing how these people live, but more importantly, how genuine they are to each other and their family & friends. These people are down to earth and real. Nothing plastic here!

I bought this show for my Husband more so than for me. He thinks it is great and loves the show because of the people. As he says they speak his language.
We're from South East Missouri on the Eastern side of the Ozark Mountains. He gets a kick out of the subtitles for people who may not understand what these folks are saying. He and our youngest son understand every word and phrase spoken. It is a language that is learned if you live any where near the South. Only the French that is thrown in is different than what we grew up with. But even in some parts of our state, other languages find their way in, including French.
Swamp People is basically about Alligator Season in Louisiana and the people that participate in the catching and harvesting of these magnificent animals.
I personally would like to see more about the people and a little less about how to catch Alligators. After three seasons, I think we know how it is done.
The show may seem brutal to some folks and it is a job that dictates you being brutal or you may end up as lunch for the Gators. Probably not a good show for the very young unless you are willing to take the time and patience to explain what is going on.
The people that star in Swamp People are just what they are. Common everyday people, with families and pets that have learned how to carve a living out of the swamp. If we lived there I'm sure we would be just as involved as they are. No matter where you may go in this great country, you are going to find these types of people. People making a living out of the natural resources they have around them.
My only hope is that this show doesn't ruin the people who star in it.

Don't like all the new people on the show. To much time jumping from one to another. Liked the seasons before much better. Don't care what they are doing in Texas. ZZ and Jeramy are sickening.

I am not a reality show fan. But I love Swamp People. These guys are as real as it gets. This is how they make a living, risking there lives to keep the population in the swamp in balance.Sure they profit from it. It sure not a wy I would want to made my living. If there neighbors are having problems. They put there lifes on hold to help each other. Too bad the rest o the country doesn't take some lessons about brotherly love from these real honest people. I look forwrd to theshort season of seeing the how every year. Keep them on because theres nothing pretend on this show.

The Swamp People have me hooked. I thoroughly enjoy this series. I want to see every single episode and I am going in line. The Cajun people are so believable and real to me. They seem like friends that I could go visit. I have learned a lot about Cajun history, too, in watching this series. Life is the Louisiana swamp seems so very interesting. I did not know anything about the tag system in hunting alligators and I do see the reasoning behind why they do as they do. I admire these people so very much. I love Swamp People. Troy remains my favorite.

Bait big hook with stinky meat. Hook alligator. Proclaim "That's a good one!" Struggle with alligator. Shoot alligator. Repeat.

This program is most interesting when it gives the viewer a look at the Cajun lifestyle and these Cajun people, who are admirable for their seeming devotion to family and community. I wish we could see more of the Houma first people who apparently are preserving many of the old ways, though not scorning airboats.
