Welcome to Hippies Failing Badly!TM
Last weeks episode (showing at 8PM e/p):
SURROUNDED BY SPIES
Premiering Friday, June 4, 9PM e/p
As whaling season begins in the Antarctic, the Sea Shepherds embark on another dangerous campaign. With three vessels all launching from a different port, Captain Paul Watson now faces the daunting task of being the admiral of a fleet.
This weeks episode:
Premiering Friday, June 11, 9PM e/p
After repeated attempts to outrun and engage his pursuers, Captain Paul Watson makes a dangerous decision. Meanwhile, the Sea Shepherds' speedboat, Ady Gil, has returned to dock to repair their damaged radar.
When we left out
intrepid adventurers odoriferous miscreants they were having some equipment issues.
The Steve Irwin had sent out their rubber boat to search for whalers, but the radios didnt work.
The Bob Barker was still stuck in port with an engine that wont start.
The Ady Gil was returning to port with malfunctioning radar.
Self proclaimed Admiral Paul Watson was not deterred.
Unable to locate any real whalers, Admiral Coco Puffs decides to chase a Japanese escort ship because getting good footage for the cameras is much more important than stopping whaling. Unfortunately, the escort ship is faster, better equipped and obviously manned by a better crew. Admiral Coco Puffs tried to duck behind an ice berg and then charge the Japanese escort ship. Oops. The Japanese turned their fire hoses on, and the Steve Irwins helicopter is exposed on the deck. Can the granola powered crew get the chopper put in the hanger before the Japanese see how waterproof it is? Tune in to find out.
How is this all happening.
I understand they have sponsers and a boat or two have been donated but this Captain Paul Watson, Did his dad leave him 50 Million in his will or something?
Who pays for all this?
Put it in the dishwasher. Leave it upside down on a towel to dry for a week. It works, trust me.
Could you add me to your ping list please.
This will be pretty funny,
Does the “crew” get paid?
I just realized it’s Friday, June 11 and it’s 8:51PM here on the east coast.
I’m reaching for my remote as i type....WoooHooo!
I can use a good laugh!!
They are all volunteers, and they act like it. They all get fun titles, like Second Mate or Chief Cook. Often they have no experience at sea. They had an episode last year where they were trying to learn how to launch a small boat. I can’t believe no one was killed. I wouldn’t trust most of them to back a car out of the driveway.
Can I steal that?
Paul Watson would have his ass handed to him if he decided to go up against any of the crabbing captains from Deadliest Catch.
I’d love to see him spend a few hours on the deck of the Northwestern.
So Admiral Coco Puffs has figured out that the Japanese escort ship that is following him can radio his position to the rest of the whaling fleet. Of course, he was following the Japanese ship first.
He announced that he would lose the Japanese ship in the ice because he has more experience sailing through the ice than they do (he almost lost his ship last year doing this). He then left a member of Cypress Hill navigating the ship through the ice and went below to look at pictures on his laptop.
Now that’s leadership.
LOL...He needed another TOKE to calm his nerves......Really smart to go into the Ice without the IceBreaker Ship.....
The ice breaker ship is safely in port, the tropical post 5000 miles away.
Damn i can’t watch it.
My GF has a Chris Hanson reporting on Van Der Loser recoring going on and i’m recording The season final SG: Universe episode.
Can’t watch a 3rd channel.
Maybe it’ll be on later tonight.
Oh, and the helicopter may not have enough fuel to make it back.
Not only incompetant but clearly cult-like....”Crew” comments on their like for new members ability to follow orders...then shaves the heads of the crew...works them hard...and rewards them with the Cults Uniforms.....
The comparisons to Obama and his Followers writes themslves..
Did you catch the comment by one of the crew of the Ady Gil about the women on the Steve Irwin smelling like hampsters after a few weeks at sea?
HAHAHAHA yes....I laughed so hard....Dirty Smelly Hippies...
The crew of the Bob Barker can’t even take 10 foot swells. The Crabbers fish, that’s right, fish, in 20 foot swells.
And the crabbers can keep their engines running. Next week looks even better.
