It is pretty bad, though I'm sure a fair amount of that is the editing. You can tell just from the sea conditions that they chop different shots from different times of day (or perhaps from different days).

Some of it is pretty ridiculous - throwing the bottles by hand, I mean, come on. Head on over to any boat store and buy a friggin' water balloon launcher - problem solved. And throwing a line in the water to tangle the props on 200 ft ship A steel cable, maybe, but a nylon line? I don't think so...

What a bunch of monkeys! Their main weapon is throwing bottles onto the ships. The only problem they can even come close to getting a bottle on the ship. Then they throw a rope contraption in the water and expect it to go aroung the props. The draft on those shops has to be 30 feet? How do they expect for that rope to make it all the wway under the ship? it didn't, the guys on the ship took it.
The captain is giving orders, the guys in the boat don't know the code words.
I do like it, very amusing. Kind of reminds me of my staff!
They used to hit the whale killer ships with almost every throw when they got close. Now the Japs have netting and water cannons. Watson needs to come up with new methods to counteract them.

My favorite part in season one is when the jack hole has no idea how to use a compass and then they see a ship out the port side and he says "where", and looks out the right! Someone needs to beat that guy with a sock full of quarters. Other then that I am glad I dvr it because I can't waste a 1/2 hr for 3minutes of funny.

While the cause might be respectable, the way they are going about it isn't. With all the maritime hi-jackings going on I'm waiting for one of the whaling ships to claim attempted hi-jacking and hit the Sea Shepard at the water line with a rocket propelled grenade.

Then the rookie sea-goers will really provide some comedy!!!

If someone jumped the rail of my vessel out there they would be shot before they put their foot on the deck. These people are a bunch of clowns and I'm sure that the people really trying to save whale are ashamed of this TV show.
