Big Angry Fish was born on a cold morning, 3 miles off North Cape in the middle of winter. We had driven through the night from Tauranga to arrive at the Far North. Our plan was to fish the shallow waters over the next four days, trying to find some massive fish, hiding out in the winterless north.
The first morning was an early start. Situated over a shallow reef pumping berley, we caught massive snapper one after another with several fish over 20lbs. With the current slowing down, we moved around to North Cape, where the waters were churning with fish: massive trevally, huge kingfish, the place was just on fire!
With live-baits only lasting seconds before they got eaten, we were catching some amazing kingfish. Finally we just stopped and looked at each other, "We should be filming this", Milan said, "We must show people how insane this fishing is".
From that moment on, we started up the motor, put the boat back on the trailer and spent the next 9 hours driving home talking about our new business plan.

Big Angry Fish - Star vs. the Forces of Evil - Netflix
Star vs. the Forces of Evil is an American animated television series created by Daron Nefcy and developed by Jordana Arkin and Dave Wasson, which airs on Disney XD. The first Disney XD series created by a woman, and the third overall for Disney Television Animation (following Pepper Ann and Doc McStuffins), it follows the adventures of Star Butterfly (voiced by Eden Sher), the turbulent young heir to the royal throne in the dimension of Mewni, who is sent to Earth so she can complete her education and learn to be a worthy princess, and Marco Diaz (Adam McArthur), a human teenager who becomes her roommate and best friend, as they live their daily lives, and go on adventures in other dimensions. Star vs. the Forces of Evil typically follows a format of two 11-minutes long independent “segments” per episode, with individual writing and directing credits for each, although it occasionally opts for a single, 22-minutes long story instead. The first episode aired on January 18, 2015 on Disney Channel as a special preview, becoming the most-watched animated series debut in Disney XD’s history; the first season subsequently officially premiered on Disney XD on March 30, 2015. The third season started on July 15, 2017 and concluded on April 7, 2018. On February 28, 2017, the series was officially renewed for a fourth season. Nearly a year after the renewal, it was announced that the show would be moving to Disney Channel for its fourth season.
Big Angry Fish - Reception - Netflix
Star vs. the Forces of Evil has received positive reviews by critics. Kevin Johnson of The A.V. Club gave the pilot episode a B+, saying that the show was something children could have a lot of fun with, noting how the show follows current trends in western animation “towards large-eyed characters and quirky visual trends”. Johnson stated that Star vs. the Forces of Evil “excels on wild, silly, and clever set-pieces to bring the laughs and action”, but expected that adult viewers won't get much out of it. Furthermore, the premiere of Star vs. the Forces of Evil became the most-watched animated series debut in Disney XD’s history. Following the end of the second season, Disney XD announced it had ordered a fourth season of the show, and that in 2016, Star and another animated show Milo Murphy's Law had reached over 100 million consumer views combined across its media platforms. In reviewing episodes from the first season, Marcy Cook of The Mary Sue described the show as a blend of others such as Invader Zim and a sanitized Ren & Stimpy, with great appeal to tween and teen girls as well some laugh out loud moments for adults. She said, “[I]t's really cool to see a girl who is into cuteness and rainbows also kick-ass and enjoy it”. Cook was bothered by the short episodes that made the plot seem rushed or underdeveloped. Cook was bugged by Marco's retconned personality from the pilot episode where he was a safety conscious kid to the series where he was a martial arts fight seeker. Caitlin Donovan of entertainment website Epicstream listed it among her top 10 animated series of 2015. She found the first few episodes to be “a little rough for me, like the show was trying too hard to be funny and weird”, but that the show got better with character development and relationship building, with “a really dramatic, high-tension finale to the first season”.
