"Swamp People" (History)
What it is: Louisiana is more than New Orleans -- it's also the home of America's largest swamp. The Cajuns of the Atchafalaya Swamp carry on the long-held tradition of alligator hunting during the 30-day open hunting season.
Why it's weird: Though Cajuns are showing up all over basic cable these days, if you aren't used to the accent and haven't watched a show about the Louisiana swamps yet, be prepared to read some subtitles.
Why it's awesome: If you love alligators this may not be the show for you, but if you like the idea of a warm weather (and just as dangerous) "Deadliest Catch," you're in the right place.
