BBC News - Japan halts whale hunt after chase by protesters

Well, it was bound to happen: something actually happened in Whale Wars! Too bad the new season doesn’t air until Summer.

I am not a greentard by any measure, but I find this kind of unscripted TV absolutely addictive. Now that something actually happened in the show, it is going to be even better. The problem is that the way the show is edited, I can almost guarantee you that they’ll stretch this over pretty much the whole season. I can almost visualize the promos:

“On the next episode of Whale Wars, we’ll show you a five-second clip that hints at the five-second clip we’ll show three weeks from now that hints at somebody getting excited about maybe catching up to the damn whaling mothership.”

Or something like that. They did it already, for the Ady GIl incident.

I hope that when the Caves of Steel happen it won’t impact this kind of TV show.
