This Series is SO EXCITING!!! It tells the true story!!!,
This review is from: Whale Wars: Season 1 (DVD)
I have seen this series and it tells the true story about what the Sea Shepherd really does. They have never hurt any one at sea, but the whalers have lost 2 crew member at their own faults for this line of work. The Japanese whalers will use any means necessary, including extreme violence against protesters to protect their very cruel and greedy whale killing industry.
If you need more information about whale killing and the laws go look them up. The truth is out there. Don't just take the hate comments, that have given this series 1 star just to lower the rating of this series. They are paranoid and follow around everything that Sea Shepherd posts on the internet including youtube videos and anti-whaling clips just make and post comments about Sea Shepherd being so called "eco-terrorists" a label given to the conservation society to make people think they are some how crazy extreme violent group, which they are not.
Sea Shepherd have the highest level of integrity. I have followed the whaling industry and the Sea Shepherd and compared both sides. Sea Shepherd have proven to be the on the side of the law. Japanese have exploited a loophole in order to kill whales for food under the guise of research but all they actually do it gut the whales and weigh them. No real data is given. What information is given is used to justify, the restart killing of other species of whales like the humpback. But because the loophole exists, they continue to kill.
The Japanese had also been invited to contribute to this series by offering their side of the story but they refused. SO if the series seems one sided, it is at the fault of the whalers. Not Animal Planet or the Sea Shepherd.
As for the series, when I watched it, my opinion is that it is extremely exciting. I was on the edge of my seat wanting to know what was going to happen next. I have learned a lot about the Sea Shepherd conservation society and what they have done for seals and other marine wild life and had been impressed. But when I watched this series, the depth of their willingness and compassion for whales is so deep, to risk their lives just to save whales is amazing.
I truely felt that no one is so brave to actually stand up for what they believe to that extent in this world any more or at least there are a very rare few. It also gives the human side of being cramped into a small ship, and having to be with a bunch of other people who at times made mistakes. I felt this series is well made. I love the music samples to used for the series Smashing Pumpkins, the world is a vampire. It fit perfectly.
So don't turn away just because this has gotten low star rating by a few who just hate Sea Shepherd.
It is an exciting series. This is true reality show!!!!! I can not wait for the second series to come out. The Japanese whalers have increased their violence by using LRAD Long Range Acoustical Devices (LRAD's) and high powered water cannons against the Sea Shepherd crew.
So stay tuned!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I find the promoting of ecoterrorism profoundly appauling and I hope the LRAD sound devices being used against these self-important nutballs prove effective if not humane. The confrontations can only get more violent and with the "Sea Sheppard" as the antagonist, I can only side with the whalers. Direct action against whalers is in my mind no different than going after abortion doctors. This is not being brave.

Your comment has absolutely nothing to do with the series for which I wrote the review, and the ineptitude of the subject for which you spew this non-sense is beaming. Sea Shepherd has harmed ZERO people in all the years they have been operating. The Japanese on the other hand have had 2 deaths under their watch at sea. They are the one's who are violent and are breaking laws by killing whales in a WHALE SANCTUARY!!! So nice of you to fall right in line by using nicely coined terms like "eco-terrorism" which is exactly what whale hunters are, by destroying efforts to conserve dwindling populations of whales through killing them in so called name of science, which is the biggest farce on the planet. Sea Shepherd are a conservation group and a successful one at that. Which makes for a big step far within the realms of HEROS!
