I have notice that catfish are more deadly then most species of fish it always seams that's what the problem is but I still enjoy watching and seeming what is gonna happen

I love it!
I'd host that one in a minute.

What about a show that chronicled an angler's attempt to catch trophy sized freshwater fish...not necessarily monsters, but a lot bigger than average? Most fishing shows devote a segment, or a few minutes, to a species. I would like to see some expanded coverage on a single species.....a show devoted to largemouth, or crappie, or yellow perch, or dare I say.....bluegills. BIG bluegills.

An hour each week spent traversing North America searching for trophy freshwater fish...I would watch that.

What did he say... Over 3000 species?!
Unfortunate, but Jeremy tied his own hands with the title, "River Monsters."
Now, we need a show detailing the many Amazon species that aren't monsters. Wouldn't that be a shame?
I'd be glad to retire and host such a program. And I can think of a lot of guest anglers and fellow enthusiasts to invite for the filming. ;-)

Have to admit I fell asleep after an hour. It didn't hold my interest .

After watching, I wanna go catch paraiba!

I did find it a bit tedious, myself. But I get the point - a 2 hour opener.
Some of the cinematography was good; I always like candid views of people. Apparently, the show is widely popular. I did appreciate the muted environmental message, at least.

All in all, a decent episode. I was pulling for the bull shark as prime suspect. My wife, for her part, watched the whole thing and was actually engaged. She especially liked the "live," interactive post show and the blooper out takes.
So, I think they achieved their aim of entertaining popTV. I'm hoping he will do more on the Amazon, in fact, and it's many species. I'd like a whole show of just catfish, or piranha.

Well, I watched it. Most of it anyway......turned the tv off with 10 minutes left to go. I find myself having mixed feelings. I enjoy watching JW do his thing, and appreciate any and all coverage given to freshwater species, but last night's episode just reinforced what I'm sure we all know. There's a finite number of "river monsters" in the world, and after five seasons...we've pretty much seen them.

For me, a little less back story and more line wetting would've helped things along. Maybe it was just the case of needing more material for a 2 hour premier episode....I hope that was the situation. And perhaps the one hour regular episodes will feature more fishing, less re-enactment.

I truly enjoy watching River Monsters. But I also believe that there's something to be said for recognizing that the horse you're riding has carried you as far as it can and now it's time to either change mounts, or proclaim that you've arrived at your destination.

Riding around in circles just so you can remain on the horse is not my thing. I hope it's not JW's either.

My wife has conceded the TV to me for the opener.
