Hooked: Monster Fish

2008 NR 2h 30m DVD
  • Overview
  • Details
Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water, National Geographic presents a collection of gargantuan fish, including a catfish the size of a grizzly bear and a 1,000-pound marlin with a bill that redefines the phrase "cutting edge." Scientists use state-of-the-art technology to track and film these magnificent sea creatures. And don't miss the daring -- or insane -- fishermen who use their own arms as bait.

Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that although this fish-centric educational series includes some good information, the over-hyped narration makes it clear that the show's emphasis is on the animals' deadly predatory powers and the fight between angler and fish, rather than on science (even though most of the anglers are trying to capture the fish to study them, rather than just for trophy purposes).

Sexual Content

Not applicable

Violence

While there's little blood, the narration goes in heavy for fighting analogies during fishing segments. Also, the predatory powers of the various fish are heavily emphasized with violent language about killing, impaling, and the ability to rip flesh apart.

Language

Not applicable

Social Behavior

There's a lot of talk about conservation and preserving endangered fish species, but those messages often get lost in the ramped-up narration and focus on the actual fishing events.

Consumerism

Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol
