As a Louisiana native, this is hands-down one of the best reality shows that I've had the pleasure of watching. I have a soft spot for the Atchafalaya Basin, and have always enjoyed many aspects of Cajun culture.

What makes Swamp People stand apart from other shows is the terrific cast of characters, and the banter that takes place between them. Living in Southeast Louisiana means knowing someone who lives a stone's throw from a cast member, and can vouch for their authenticity. Conversations about Season 2 with locals will largely involve who their favorite hunter is, and it's never an easy decision (someone give the Guist Brothers their own show).

If I had any complaint about the show, it would be that there are a couple of scenes in Season 2 that are noticeably scripted. From T-Rex being dragged in the boat already tagged (S2E8), to Bruce falling in the water (S2E3), there are a few groan-worthy moments. But that been said, Swamp People is still a far cry from the obvious acting I've seen in plenty of other "reality" programs.

Season 2 covers a short time in the lives of real Bayou folk just doing their everyday thing. Gator hunting is much like shrimping down here in that it's a job that keeps the bills paid. What makes this show enjoyable is the unexpected, but mostly the camaraderie and conversations.

I love that Season 2 offers a glimpse of just one of many cultures of my state to people worldwide. Definitely add this season to your collection.

As happy as I am to se Swamp People on dvd I am actually disapointed with the final product. The shows itself are wonderful to watch but Im talking about the dvds themselves. Again as with the first season dvd there is no Play all feature included for watching the episodes.
And the really weird thing is- the bonus features on the dvds DO have a play all feature. You would think that the history channel would add a play all feature like that with such a popular show.
Overall the show is wonderfull to watch- I just wish that the History channel would finally start adding Play All features to their episodes as well as their bonus material

I purchased both Season 1 & Season 2 of Swamp People. This series is one of those guilty pleasures that you enjoy watching (but may not always admit to!) My whole family is now hooked on Swamp People. The distinctive yell of, "Shoot 'em! Shoot 'em!" rings through my house whenever an episode is played. (Even my Dad gets into yelling!) Each of the Swampers has a very distinct personality and watching how the season progresses is entertaining. Who would've thought hunting alligators would be so interesting? The historical information about gator hunting & the cajun and swamp culture is well done. The History channel did a great job of showing the historical, cultural and economics aspects of life in the Swamp. I would recommend the series to anyone who likes hunting/fishing shows and quick-paced action. Just one episode & you'll be hooked!

I have been so very happy with Swamp People. It is such a treat. Actually I have learned a lot by watching this series. I knew nothing about alligators or alligator hunting. It is never too late to learn new things and that was a quote from my mother when she was in her 90s. The alligator hunters are terrific and so personable. I enjoy all of the episodes. As far as it being a reality show, it is the best of the best and I am enjoying it thoroughly. Troy remains my favorite but I have a few others coming close.

Swamp people is such an entertaining reality show. It is fun, exciting and interesting. With this season, it is clear the editor likes to have every kill play out like this: close up of shooter with a slow motion shot and water splashing followed by slack rope and an alligator's foot sinking in the water.

Swamp People is a fun exciting show about the way of life that cajun swampers have been living for hundreds of years. The swampers are down to earth good people, the show is very clean and family friendly (any accidental foul language is beeped out, and there is NO nudity), and it is an all around great watch that promotes living off the land, family values, and good community values (IE you help your neighbors). Season 2 is every bit as good as season 1 and the show keeps your attention as it shows glimpses of lives of the various stars. The Landry family in particular are just plane good people with STRONG family ties as Troy (the father) promotes and pushes his boys to be even better than he is. The introduction of the Guist brothers gives a look at swampers hunting and fishing for other game during the alligator season as well as some glimpses into the more mundane parts of a swampers life. The introduction of RJ and Jay Paul Molinere adds another great father son team who encourage and push each other to be better every episode. If the show has ANY downside it is the use of cut stock footage off and on as the swampers aim rifles, etc. However season 2 was MUCH less obvious about the cuts back and forth. In season 1 the change in rifles was OBVIOUS as they had one rifle in one shot, a different rifle in the cut, then back to the original gun in the next part of the scene.

All in all a great watch, that doesn't get old watching it over and over. I highly suggest Season 1 AND 2, and I am looking forward to season 3 release on DVD.
