I watched my first episode of it this weekend. I will be up front and I don't know anything about whale laws, and don't have a side that I'm with. I'm sure the waters they are in are international waters and not sure who has control over them. But I was amazed that the whalers don't take more serious actions. Plus since its on TV aren't the Anti's incriminating them selves? They were shooting stuff out of what looked like potato guns and I heard one was some kind of acid. Plus using rope to tangle in prop. I would think shooting one of those harpoon guns through those small boats would really detour them.
