Description

Extreme angler, Jeremy Wade, is on the hunt for freshwater fish with a taste for human flesh. This rip-roaring ride through the dark side of nature mixes action and adventure with mysteries, edge of the seat chase and a battle of wills between man and almost supernatural beasts. These killers lurk in the serpentine waterways of the planet, mooching murderously underwater, growing to truly awesome sizes. Like all the best horror movies the images are intense and immediate, the grade is gritty and real, together heightening the drama on screen. With graphics overlaying the live action, Jeremy illustrates to the viewer, using forensic methods, exactly how these river monsters are constructed to kill.

  • More fishing please, less pop anthropology

    By Mogadon6
    River Monsters is one of our favourite shows as a family, but I have grown tired of having to explain spirit possession to my children so many times. In the earlier series Jeremy sometimes branched off into amateur anthropology, to explain the beliefs of local people about the rivers and the river monsters. In series three, and even more so in series four, he appears to go out of his way, in virtually every episode, to propitiate local deities. I object to having this religious worldview rammed down my throat, and I tire of explaining it to my kids. They love Jeremy, but these recent episodes have made them confused. Jeremy's own confusion is revealed in his oft-repeated phrase, "I'm a scientist, but…" So come on Jeremy, please get back to the fishing--you and the show are entertaining enough without the need for all the dark pagan angst you have been giving us lately.
