River Monsters Season 6 : Episode 2 – Jungle Terminator

River Monsters Season 6 – Episode 2 – Jungle Terminator

Jeremy explores more of the Amazon, targeting the Electric Eel this time. I can’t say this was the most exciting episode ever, because, it wasn’t. It was mostly focused on the story as usual but there was hardly any fishing. Jeremy caught a few Red Tailed Catfish but mostly it was just talking aside from the Red Tails. I didn’t even plan to make a write up for this episode because there just isn’t much to summarize. He simply talked to a lot of local people and didn’t do much fishing.

The Electric Eel is an interesting fish but not really worthy of another entire episode. He has covered this fish in the past, so I am not sure why it was revisited myself. Sure, it *could* kill people but I just don’t see it that likely myself. He eventually caught one (An Eel) with the help of a local tribe but it wasn’t that exciting. This was one of the more boring episodes of recent years if you ask me. What do you think? Let us know in the comments.

    To me this one looked like stock footage thrown together from spare clips they shot from other episodes.

    I do want to know, however, how the tribe managed to handle the eels like that without getting shocked. That was the only intriguing part of this episode.
