Tiger_fishWhat you are going to read is going to change the course of your life. Now, I don’t know how or why Matt and I started to watch River Monsters, rather why he introduced me to this show, but I couldn’t be more happy. River Monsters is a documentary television series that airs on Animal Planet, hosted by Jeremy Wade.

HEres a little information on the show, and yes it is the Wikipedia version they just have the information down pat. River Monsters travels worldwide with Suffolk, England born host, biologist and extreme angler Jeremy Wade to explore freshwater mysteries and local folklore, possibly debunk these myths and track down these harrowing tales. The show has taken viewers to Germany, Spain, Italy, Scotland, Iceland, Norway, Argentina, Australia, New Zealand, Papua New Guinea, India, Japan, Russia,Suriname, Brazil, Ethiopia, Uganda, South Africa, the Republic of Congo, Mongolia, Guyana, and the American states of Alaska, Florida, Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas and Vermont.

The beauty of this show is you don’t need to know anything going into it because Jeremy will teach you everything you need to know about the area, the fish and the myths behind the Monsters he is catching. Thanks to Netflix you can sit back, relax and become engrossed in four exhilarating seasons of River Monsters.

If you don’t believe me that this show is worth watching just take a look at these stats. Be warned, once you start watching you will be hooked (all puns intended). River Monsters had the best series premiere in Animal Planet’s network history by delivering 1.3 million viewers. It was also its most watched regularly airing primetime telecast in over six years. The second episode of Animal Planet’s River Monsters delivered a 39% boost in total viewers (1.866 million) compared to the series premiere. Those numbers made it the best performing regularly scheduled primetime telecast in Animal Planet’s history. The first season of River Monsters made it the best performing show in Animal Planet’s history with every episode averaging over 1 million households. The season finale delivered about 1.47 million households.

on the metro?

Well, snakes were not exactly on my metro but they were apart of the podcast that I was so intently listening to. Last Friday it seemed like anyother. I was running a head of time, and things were going smoothly until I turned my podcast on. Let me preface this by telling you lately, Matt and I have been getting really into the show River Monsters with Jeremy Wade and by “really” into it that’s exactly what I mean. There is not a night that goes by where River Monsters is not on our Netflix cue. It’s an incredible show.

Back to my Friday morning commute. There I sit on the train and I turn on The Moth podcast to get me through my morning commute and luckily it’s a radio hour which is featuring “a squeamish writer is sent on an assignment to locate enormous poisonous snakes; a hippie kid seeks the approval of his conservative father; and two child refugees from Afghanistan arrive in America without their parents.” All hell breaks loose as soon as I turn on the podcast. I sit on the train listening intently and the next thing I know, I look up and I am TWO stops past my transfer location. All I could think of was “wait, this is not right”. After I got back on track to get to the office, I turned my podcast back on and finished listening to the stories.

This is a pointless funny story for me to share with you. It just goes to show that all parts of your life truly are interconnected. That, and well the fact that you should really be paying attention to what’s going on throughout your morning commute.
