Wicked Tuna

Show Summary

Follow the childish antics of the USA's Atlantic coast fishery area of Maine. What began in its pilot season as a head turning show about the struggles of rod-and-reel fishermen making their meager livings catching giant Tuna, evolved in its second season into more of a game show pitting crew against crew with a dollar counting tote board tallying up the weekly earnings of each craft. Season 3, however has turned this promising look into old school rod and reel fishing into a childish rolling set of rants featuring endless moaning and grousing, bullying - which has no place in a family friendly show; and has almost nothing whatsoever to do with the art of rod and reel fishing. As a quasi game show with a new cast more appropriate to "Honey-Boo-Boo meets who cares"...Nat Geo has proven that they can kill off decent programs just like the big networks when they let too many executives mess with something that already works. I would bet my house this horrible waste of film won't be around for a season 4, and if it should happen somehow to make it that far, hopefully it goes back to its original format, formula and cast. Unless you've seen absolutely EVERYTHING else that's on, don't bother. Go watch a blade of grass grow or try timing how long paint takes to dry. At least there you might learn something.
