Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: Not yet rated
Kids say: Not yet rated

The show takes a voyeuristic look at the life of the Cajun shrimper, the existence of which continues to be threatened by natural and man-made disasters. Details about the shrimping process are also offered. Adding to this are some larger-than-life personalities and drama created by rivalries between the fishermen.

Viewers who like this sort of job-oriented reality fare will find it entertaining, but the series can also be viewed as a story of cultural survival. It is also a strong warning about the long-term impact the destruction of our natural resources is having on the livelihood and culture of a region.
