Buy the River Monsters Season 1 DVD set and watch Jeremy Wade hunt down the murderous river devils both large and small.

Episodes include:
PIRANHA: In 1976 a packed coach crashed into the Amazon killing 39 people. By the time rescuers were able to pull the bodies out, some had been so viciously mutilated by the piranha that they could only be identified by their clothes. Tracking down survivors and eyewitnesses of piranha attacks, Jeremy Wade reveals why the piranha fills our nightmares.

KILLER CATFISH: Two years ago, on the treacherous Kali River, high in the mountains of Northern India, Jeremy Wade unearthed the mother of all fisherman's tales and the ultimate freshwater horror: a super-sized freshwater fish turned man-eater. Jeremy takes on the biggest, toughest challenge he's ever faced as he heads back to the Himalayas to separate fact from fiction and track down the monstrous beast.

ALLIGATOR GAR: In the Deep South is a river monster with the reputation of a devil. Blamed for a series of violent attacks on humans, this creature is said to be as vicious as a shark and as big as an alligator. The authorities said it should be annihilated, but not all are so quick to condemn it. Extreme angler Jeremy Wade heads to Texas on its trail in an attempt to uncover the facts behind this animal's notoriety. Helped by local expertise and with his own wits honed sharp, he finds new ways to reveal the truth about the monster alligator gar.

EUROPEAN MANEATER: Reports of an attack on a swimmer in a lake close to Berlin is the starting point for an intense and shocking investigation. Wade travels to Germany where he meets modern-day victims of a beast that has been raising its snout above the surface of freshwaters in Europe regularly over the past 700 years. Investigations travel to Spain where Wade discovers firsthand that the wels catfish is a living, breathing aggressive predator growing to man-eating proportions capable of everything depicted in medieval records and more.

AMAZON ASSASSINS: In the darkest depths of the Amazon lurks a dinosaur. Legends tell of an evil spirit inhabiting an enormous fish. Taller than a man, it is covered in scales and crushes its prey with a tongue made of bone. Jeremy Wade has encountered this creature once before, and he came out second best. He's taking no chances in the rematch.

AMAZON FLESHEATERS: A man swallowed whole by a fish. A body eaten alive from within. Another penetrated in a most unnatural fashion, and yet more with multiple stab wounds. Jeremy Wade is in pursuit of these notorious killers to discover the facts to determine if their crimes are real and their methods as gruesome as reported.

FRESHWATER SHARK: No fish inspires the same terror as the shark, a creature with an insatiable hunger for brutal violence. But at least these killers are confined to the oceans. Or are they? Expert angler Jeremy Wade investigates whether it's possible for sharks to live in freshwater, and if so just how far inland these vicious predators will bring their reign of terror.

            I love this show. I only discovered it a couple months ago (thanks for the mini-marathons) and, even though I do not fish, I am fascinated by what's out there in the water. I plan to collect all the seasons.

                                Highly original and well-thought out series about an obscure subject that deserves more attention. Jeremy Wade as host is wonderful: passionate about his work and a true nature enthusiast, at times the real star of the show! Would highly recommend for viewers who enjoy travel to remote places around the world and who can appreciate a host who doesn't use foul language or dramatics to get his point across.

                                        if you are an avid outdoorsman and love science these are great for you to get and share with friends and family. they can change your entire opinion about certain types of fish as well as inform you of what to watch for when you are in water ways, streams and rivers. my 6 and 4 year old and i sit and watch these for hours on end. great product.

                                        I used this DVD to create several lesson plans for my adult ESL classes. The episodes were very adaptable to this end, and the host speaks in clear, easy-to-understand (British) English - great for ESL students. The 1-hour episodes are also a good length - not too long or short, and each follows the host through a critical thinking process. Also good for CBE ESL classes (biology/basic science)
