The show is unique, that’s for sure. Next, I will be sure to take huge liberties with the execution of the full task. That is fraud, in my opinion. Not the greatest planner and it shows. He realizes he needs to go back to basics to make this work. He takes risks and has success. It’s also taken several years to complete, instead of say, one year after studious planning, sourcing the necessary funding and support, and a whole metric ton of other logistics. DANGEROUS WATERS is a reality series about a group of five men attempting to circle the planet on modified jet skis. When I watch the show, I’m reminded of the time I watched Napoleon Dynamite….. As I watched it, the only thing that kept me going was the faith… Faith that it would get better. With the personnel changes without explaining why, I thought the team buried a few at sea. The worst person was that mechanic Katlin who cost them to lose two jet skis That was obviously all that guys fault. They should have billed them for the rescue!) S7E11 - After a rough night on the Lesche, the crew is lowered onto the water and say their goodbyes. The rest of the season is a 5-episode No Wake zone with some nice scenery and consistent bureaucratic haranguing by different EU nations – including a new law outlawing all PWC from the Rhine in Austria. If you want to show how difficult everything is and that at every turn there is something unexpected but as a human being people can make things happen. The team journeys deep into the Arctic Circle and Moll’s complete and total navigational ineptitude nearly gets the team killed – and I legitimately mean that. (I suspect.). Pure cheese. And I interpreted Shaw’s review likewise. You Pick your Words Like A True Professional! In fact, my husband and I made a pact that neither one of us would watch the episodes without the other. The crew at the end is just three with MacGregor being a jack of all trades. It is amazing they lived through this season but it is like every young officers first tour.

You can hike a trail like a boss buddy, but somebody blazed that trail for you. You’ve utterly discounted or ignored every single absurdly difficult factor that goes into this expedition.

This is about the journey, the expedition and showing the masses things about the world they flat out don’t know and almost certainly will never see. The fly-by-night logistical approach comes home to bite the team in the butt here. Depending almost solely on electronics for navigation, and showing remarkable fear at having to use a compass heading to navigate (the oldest and most reliable form of navigation in existence), even after a few seasons, just stupid. I will also be sure to berate my crew and be belligerent to pretty much every person I encounter who is different from me, because, ya know… I’m a god fearing ‘murican. 14 talking about this. I don’t understand why that would not take five hours. You are dead on about the show. How can you claim traveling around the world if you skip half of it.

It’s like flying to Nepal hitting the market and claiming you climbed Everest. It was truly the most petty, distasteful thing I have ever seen…well, since this article. Take direct control of individual crew stations and also plan and execute combined arms naval strategies from a top-down 'Commanders Eye' perspective. I agree with Preston, you don’t know how much preparation is put into the show. Thank you to all of their families for letting them be away for a few months each season! With only one day of riding beneath their belts, the skis are boxed up again and shipped to Denmark. I hate it.

S7E1 - The expedition arrives in Japan and finds out their Russian crew member is being denied entry into the country. He takes on too much burden and does not delegate.

Jerry O'Connell, Nikki Glaser and … If you sat through all 6 seasons – and BTW, season 7 was WILD – & that’s all you can dig up to throw at Steve Moll, you def do not get off your couch much.

To all the adventurers that participated in this show, I don’t say this too often but God bless them n too yall, don’t be too hard on Moll, he’s got his embarrassment and lashings from authorities all around the world, an accurate synopsis – old saying ” God looks after fools and drunks” – think that’s what the prayer was about –. CAPT Moll has come a long way from ENS Moll. Watch as these men battle the elements on JetSkis! Anette, it is admirable that you stand up for your husband, but it is nonsense to expect eople notto critizea TV show ‘because they dont know half of what went on’. And my final words, I’m not hating on Moll or anything, I just think he was I’ll prepared n never really grasped the concept of the task at hand in how much he shoulda prepared, it’s like he owned a seadoo and on Saturday night thought “I want to circumnavigate the world with seadoos and by Monday he was in the water!!

S7E6 - The men explore the remote coast of Hokkaido Island arriving in their final Japanese port, Wakkanai. The unexpected hospitality the crew received from literally every stop and port was very uplifting. These guys are to be commended for taking on such an adventure.

I JUST WANT TO PUNCH HIM IN THE DICK !! I was in disbelief at his ignorance on how to properly treat jetskis; running them onto a beach and ruining impellers, running them onto ice shelfs and punching holes in the cooling plate. The Sea of Japan tests the crew’s nerves. If it wouldn’t been for Charles and Wes they wouldn’t been able to get as far as I could on the Jet skis with the limited fuel that they had.

I’ve been running a ski shop for ten years and what little I have learned would let me equip a successful trip almost anywhere in the world. They could have made it much faster by just putt-putting along the coast and not stopping so much. I just got a very irked PM from Steven Moll himself who screamed that he “had accomplished something great.” He and his show did in fact accomplish their goal, and that is worthy of acknowledgement. He has come a long way for season one. Steve is more organized and willing to make the hard calls. And these people they interact with doesn’t even know them personally.

He made it painfully clear to the crew that this was an adventure with no guarantee of how far they would make it. Ignorance of boating laws is no excuse. Why would you go out of your way to watch all of the seasons???? Yvonne, You are a Classy Lady! Because I would yell at the tv when they would get rocks stuck in the pump.

Kevin, I love your articles and I hope you create a show one day. Kevin it is YOU who are completely petty dishing out criticism on such ridiculous points like not being happy with Steve leading a prayer (really??) This doesn’t mean there wasn’t one. I personally would have had a handler in each country who was ready for my crew upon arrival one who could navigate local customs language refueling etc. You really should get your facts straight before printing such things. How do you plan for a corrupt disfunctional government giving you permission to be somewhere then jailing and robbing you blind when you go exactly where they said you could go?

If I know that a compromised hull could lead to my death. 8. Andrew the cocky E-3 who thinks he know it all. Most enlightening moments are when Steve has his passive aggressive moments throwing various people under the Moll bus (naming episodes “Steve, I’m scared” and “Quitters Quit” to snipe at Scott, and his sniping at Andrew who knew more than most of them about the northern waters)–you can’t call yourself a leader when you snipe at people like that.
