Big Pacific

PBS | 8:00 pm

"Violent" not only is the title of this second episode of the new documentary series about the Pacific Ocean and its dwellers, it also names a trait shared by many of those creatures. Some are perpetrators, challenging others to showdowns for supremacy — while others are peace lovers steering as clear of conflict as possible. One might think the Pacific is big enough to keep those parties apart, but it’s ultimately more evidence of how small the world is.
