Default Re: Deadliest Catch...


Why am I not surprised you watch this show too???

I wondered about the camera guys too, I really wonder when the captain sleeps, so often they are talking about how many continuous hours the crew has been working, and the captain has to be up then too....

The other amazing thing is the difference in pay, I was watching a final episode the other day, the guys on the Northwestern or Time Bandit got $57,000 for King Crab season, some on other boats got $17,000.

While I realize it is a short season, and $17K is good for a month's (+/-) work, it seems hugely disparate!
