In a particularly unscientific American study conducted a few years ago, profiles were analyzed on the popular dating app Tinder.

Among the more bizarre findings was found that 22% of men between the ages of 18 and 35 in the state of Florida posted a picture of themselves holding a fish that had just been caught with a fishing rod.

In an equally dubious study, 1,000 female students were asked to rate pictures of young men according to their level of attractiveness.

According to the findings, 46% of women preferred pictures of men holding a dying fish in their hand.

The study goes into very specific data on which fish make the man smiling next to them look more worthy of mating, but the equation is quite simple, that the bigger the fish - the more attractive the man becomes.

Needless to say, the studies were not published in scientific journals, however they did win huge headlines in fishing magazines around the world.

It is not clear what men's obsession with the sea and the wonderful animals that live within it.

Jules Verne's Captain Nemo, Ernest Hemingway's Old Santiago, Herman Melville's Ahab, James Matthew Berry's Hawk Captain, Steven Spielberg's Quintet, Carlo Collodi's Pinocchio and the biblical Jonah Ben Amitai are just some of the men who devoted extensive parts of the biography Their for marine obsession.

Danny Kushmero, a true legend, decided to shake off the tie-dyed figure from Studio Six and present on screen the figure of the naval warrior from the fleet - swimming near the wondrous orca whale.

Somehow, instead of a nice 7-minute article at the end of the edition, it became a kind of full-time nature film of the channel watched in the State of Israel.

It is worth noting that relative to what is usually broadcast during these hours on Channel 12, this is a real gem.

A documentary journey to the remote villages at the North Pole Gate.

A rare look at the people who decided to live in a place where the sun does not shine most of the year.

Exposure to the direct harms of global warming and above all - zero-range acquaintance with one of the most regal creatures in the animal kingdom - the deadly whale.

But the plan decided to focus on another majestic creature: Reserve Major Danny Kushmero.

With all due respect to Itai Engel, when did he jump into the water shirtless in frozen water?

In a puzzling narrative choice, the background to the series "Until the End" is made clear to viewers only at the end: about two years ago, Kushmero was injured in a serious motorcycle accident, and miraculously survived.

As a result he decided to celebrate life in the extreme.

Fill the hard drive with small moments that are worth doing a "save" on, as he puts it.

But if you take out of the picture the personal story of Kushmero mentioned in the sentence and a quarter at the end of the show, it is not really a particularly dramatic documentation.

"The extreme experience Danny Kushmero went through at the North Pole," read one of the promos for the show yesterday, and it's quite ridiculous.

While Itai Engel meets murderous tribes in the Congo, infiltrates ISIS ranks in Syria and flirts with death in northern Iraq - Kushmero Total has joined a very popular organized trip and swam with dolphins (yes, these are dolphins, Google them before you get upset).

Until recently, when it was possible to travel abroad, any Israeli with a respectable vacation budget could fly to Norway, hire the services of one of the many travel companies that organize swimming with orcas, and experience exactly the same unique Kushmero experience. Thousands of tourists do it too In general, millions of children around the world have already watched sad orca whales doing pranks in one of the big water parks, although the phenomenon was reduced after the release of the docu-blackfish that exposed the abuse of whales in these places.

This is largely the TV version of your sleazy friend traveling to an exotic destination. You guys see a slideshow in the living room instead of just letting you like his album on Facebook. It did not help that everything that came around the main event of swimming with the whales just was not interesting enough. From the expected jokes about the marine biologist in Seinfeld to his brief interviews with locals. It must have been a pleasant routine break for Kushmero, but none of them really contributed anything to the show beyond time-spreading. Instead of quarreling with Miri Regev and Tamar Zandberg, he yells at a young Norwegian girl who lives in NORWAY, while she hears for some reason that he

Tell her she's living in NO WAY.

It's not a parable of anything, she just did not hear well.

For this blurry photo we watched 45 minutes?

Kushmero tried to convey through the camera the freezing cold of the Norwegian sea, the despair of jumping into icy water only to find that there was nothing there and the boredom of wandering around an uninteresting fishing town and looking for a pub that did not exist.

This is the docu-equivalent of watching a prestigious football game that ends in a disappointing 0-0.

For trying to mark V in the checklist of nature films, Kushmero missed nature itself.

Documenting his visit to a fur store was almost as unnecessary as the brutal murder of the animals whose skin was stripped from them while they were alive to become clothing items in that store.

The veteran journalist asks the indifferent saleswoman at the store if she is not sad about the animals, and she replies that she has more important things to worry about.

That was a silly answer to an unnecessary question.

Spreading the time proved effective when the plan finally culminated - Kushmero's encounter with a deadly whale.

How long have we waited!

Here is one of the experiences that Danny Kushmero, he says, will never forget.

This experience is described to us by Danny Kushmero himself.

In his words.

Danny Kushmero's lyrics.

This is the moment when the token falls and we realize that is all we will get from the exciting encounter.

The blurry video we watched a few moments ago of several marine items swimming will be all the visible documentation of the orcs in the water.

It turns out that Kushmero's crew simply did not go on this endearing organized trip with cameras that could properly document for 2020 this brief underwater encounter.

But who cares.

Want to see orcs up close?

Search YouTube.

Want to see a nature film that closely documents the amazing life in the depths?

Look for David Attenborough's Blue Star.

Want to see a crazy documentation of an orca whale leaping out of the water, catching a sea lion on the beach and shaking it in its mouth like a rag doll until the spirit of life leaves its body?

Search for "72 Dangerous Beasts: Latin America" ​​on Netflix.

Want to see Danny Kushmero jump without a top into icy water for no reason while risking hypothermia?

View Request 12.

Unintentionally, the whole tragedy of the commercial broadcast request filled the screen in one particularly symbolic moment.

Kushmero spoke to the camera in the heart of the frozen fjord, surrounded by glaciers shrinking in the wake of global warming.

It was an important moment when the climate crisis reached the heart of prime time on the country's most important mainstream channel.

Hundreds of thousands of people have heard one of the most recognizable voices in the country explain to them about something important for them to know.

This monologue was quickly interrupted when someone shouted that they were in a whale environment.

The important explanation was abandoned in favor of "action."

The crew jumped into the water, the energy was at its peak - and the whales were gone, just like the opportunity to enrich the viewer with something beyond noise and ringing.

In small

In one of Kushmero's moments of smearing time, he naturally tells the camera that his baby daughter has made her first steps and he missed that special moment following his journey.

One can appreciate a person who seeks to maximize his life experiences and seeks to take advantage of every moment in our beautiful world to fill the tank of memories.

There's something inspiring about that.

And on the other hand, it's hard not to wonder how we would have gotten it if Kushmero had been replaced by a woman who tells how she left her baby daughter at home while she went swimming with other mammals.
