5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring, 15 Mar 2010
This review is from: Whale Wars - Series 1 [DVD] [2008] (DVD)
I haven't even got to the end of the series yet and am just so impressed and inspired by the work these people are doing. I disagree with the previous review that says negative things about the crew due to their lack of experience. I read the book Whale Warriors first which is about the same organisation. Yes much of the crew is inexperienced & mistakes are made as a result but as Paul Watson says in one episode, there are millions of people in the world who are against whaling but these are the few who are prepared to actually take direct action & put themselves in danger in order to put a stop to it. If they could pick and choose from hundreds of much more experienced volunteers for their crew I am sure they would have done but in truth there are very few people willing to put themselves on the line.

The most impressive thing is how well their actions work, by simply being present the Japanese whalers are too afraid to carry on whaling and run instead, every day they are running they are not whaling as the Sea Shepherds say. so there is no doubt to the effectiveness of their campaign and their actions. And the media attention they are ensuring the issue gets must be helping to raise public awareness too, i think a lot of people don't realise that whaling still goes on. The series is gripping viewing as well, like any `reality' show!
