Huh? I'm lost. Can you explain? What happened? Show is cancelled or they finally decided to leave those Japanese hunters alone?

I watched it a few times before I realized nothing significant would ever happen. They're basically on a glory cruise spending sponsors money while half a** bugging whalers.

The man is a nutjob! I understand he was asked to leave Greenpeace because his views were even to radical for them. I enjoyed the show sometimes, especially when the whalers would come out on top.

I always hope for a ship being sunk. Doesn't matter to me which one, they are nutjobs but at the same time I'm not a fan of whales being killed either.

Sad day. Those whales days are numbered and so is the fate of all ocean creatures. Mermaids will eventually run out of food sources and return to land.

I have problems with whaleing, but I have bigger problems with pirates. That is all those guys are, glorified pirates. I am surprised no one has been shot for boarding a vessel with out permission. If someone raided my property, I would lightup their arse!!

I cant even watch that show without my blood boiling!

Those sea-tards really made me sick. I never really get into watching it, because I smelled PETA as well. And they made some seriously bad boating decisions.

Finally.....he's on the run!

Run BIG BOY RUN.......Your Ego will eventually get you caught. Can't stand to be OUT OF THE LIMELIGHT.....over time.....you will be found!

Management of the targeted whale species....the Japanese and other whaling communities are not killing whales without QDM - modern science and satellites are making the management of these various species a very well known process - a process that is also keeping the pods healthy and in check.

I'm more concerned with whale habitat loss with the privitization of remote regions that previously were uninhabited.....are now.......Condos, Yachts and mucho vessel traffic. Whales do not like too much pressure.....boats and lights along the shoreline = pressure.

Sea turtles and whales.....both need wide open shores and "lightly to nil with vessel traffic pressure." Plastic bags....pollution......commercialization of the remote regions of the world for humans....this will be their end. Not the whalers.

I had to shake my head when one of the guys was talking about how he was about to board one of the whaling ships, which he had done previously, and could get up to 15 years in prison for it. Then he said his young sons need to understand why and blah blah blah. Having a daughter myself I couldnt come to terms with how boarding a ship to do nothing but sit on it until it goes back to port is more important than being there for your sons. If you're going to board a ship go old school and start taking **** over and throwing fools into the ocean.

Thank you, we need enlightenment from those that have the info instead of those that have a biased opinion of what is and is not.

I have no problem at all with folks killing whales for food and other life sustaining parts. It is survival for them.

i'm really surprised since it's a scientific research mission that the japanese navy wasn't brought in to control them. i think looking down the barrel of two or three battleships might sway my opinion on harrassment.

Thanks for putting that visual in my head Kevin!

Another reason why Paul stays in the wheel house when they are near the whalers. They would become confused seeing a "whale" on the Steve Irwin.
