It's not that bad

So the first season is okay, there is a bit of name calling but the seasons after are pretty good. Only the first season is called North vs South, it's renamed and is now called Outer Banks since. One thing to note, is the Southern captains there often tell the others if they spot a fish. Some of the Northern captains have picked up and done this as well. However some don't and this does create some conflict. Whatever swearing is on there is bleeped out.
