I've seen all of the previous shows now and while some material was certainly new and interesting, a lot of it just didn't do it for me.
Maybe I'm "old school" (i.e, the "Undersea World of Jacques Cousteau" old school), but I've always thought the ocean and diving needs to be the main subject of interest. Maybe producers these days expect you to say "a BRAVE team of divers" and "DANGEROUS conditions" and all that other stuff to add drama, but if I wanted DRAMA I'd be watching Lifetime...
Why can't we have a diving documentary series that approaches the subject like "Blue Planet" did?
I don't know... really, I appreciate your work and I sincerely wish you folks success. I suppose it's easier to criticize and a lot harder to actually do it.
