Big Blue Live 3

Santa Cruz Lighthouse and Breakwall with Four Sailboats Being Towed to Sea

Tonight is the third and final night of the PBS/BBC reality nature show about Monterey Bay, “Big Blue Live”. It is billed as a live reality TV nature show and is the first of other similar shows in this new genre. We’ve watched the first two episodes and plan on watching the third tonight. Overall I like it. It has all of the bumps and warts of any reality TV show, but these are leveled out with some great nature photography. The most endearing aspect of the series for me is that it is situated in locations that I have been to and are quite familiar with. If for nothing else, “Big Blue Live” will be a valuable infomercial for the Monterey Bay area. I just wish that the various hosts of the series could show a little bit more enthusiasm towards their material. 😉
