    Anybody know if Whale Wars is coming back this 2011 season? Seeing that Deadliest Catch thread reminded me. Great show, and I know they've got a hot new speedboat to replace that wrecked one. And added some cool new offensive weapons to boot. Go get'm Sea Shepherd!!!

    I hope not...unless it's new show about the crew of the Sea Shepherd spending time behind bars.

    Hopefully this season they can take out a few dozen of those zombie monster whaler murderers along with their death ships! Tora tora tora suckers! Remember Midway? I thought you did. Save the whales, sink the enemy fleet!

    According to Animal Planet's web site, yes, it returns with Season 4 sometime during the summer. It'll be interesting to see how the crews react when they hear that the whalers have called it quits. Hope it's permanent and the show is cancelled. Don't misunderstand, I love the show, but if it comes to it or the whales' survival, I vote for the whales.

    "early June" is what a news release from Animal Planet says.

    And the Sea Shepherd's bought a new Ady-Gil style boat for this season. Same design, but twice the length. MV Gojira

    Awesome pursuit boat! On the early suspension of their whaling season:

    "No immediate official confirmation was available from Japan. But the factory ship, Nisshin Maru, was today steaming towards Drake Passage, below South America, pursued by the Sea Shepherd group's vessel Bob Barker, having left its nominated whaling grounds 2000 nautical miles behind."

    Sounds like more wild and crazy adventures ahead!

    They aren't the ones sinking other ships, that would be the whalers doing that.

    If you don't like the show or what Sea Shepherd does why comment in the first place?

    If that what it takes to stop whaling, I'm all for it....looks like they might finally be making headway due to public exposure and outcry.

    Their deck seamanship certainly is lacking. They have been very fortunate that they haven't killed several crew members when launching their RHIBs.

    I'll give you that, but they aren't sailors and will freely admit that. They are volunteers out to support a cause by whatever means necessary.

    lol, there are no brakes on boats...The sinking of the Ady Gil was a calculated PR stunt.

    I don't know who the whalers thought they were fooling about their "scientific" expeditions but the show at least brought the truth forward. However the whale hunts pale in comparison with their government's prevarication in regards to the situation at the damaged nuclear plants.

    This show can be replaced with Dolphin Wars.

    I'm well aware of that, but there are rudders that can be used to steer.

    Hardly...
