This controversial new series takes viewers on a perilous journey getting right to the heart of the quest to stop whaling. Captain Paul Watson founded the notorious Sea Shepherd Conservation Society in 1977 because he believed his new organisation had to go even further to eradicate whaling, poaching, shark finning, habitat destruction and purported ocean law violations than the Greenpeace group he had co-founded. For years, Watson’s team of staff and volunteers have engaged in a campaign every winter to find and stop Japanese ships that hunt whales in the name of research, attempting to stop them by any non-violent means necessary. The eclectic group — labelled activists, heroes and eco-pirates — leave port in Melbourne, Australia for a two month campaign that is dangerous, contentious and has garnered international media attention.

Is this a comedy sketch?
The first episode is something that even Ricky Gervais couldnt have come up with. The first mate is like the brother from Napolean Dynamite!

THE PSYCHOLOGY OF INCOMPETENCE
Pure tragi-comedy. These people could not organise chaos on a sinking submarine. A sad fact given that the cause is essentially a noble one.
