I am hooked on Deadliest Catch (discovery HD)
 
I am hooked on this reality show and I don't even know why.

Crab fishing is reportedly the most dangerous job in the world and watching the show you can see why. The people who do the job are either 4th generation fishermen or convicts looking for fast money - which they can make doing this work. They also can get killed.

The captains are about as typical as you might expect. Cigarette smoking, hard drinking rogues who you quickly grow to love. Sig Hansen is my favorite and his boat, the Northwestern, is frequently one of the top producers with his deckhands making as much as $50,000 per trip. Others struggle through hardships - much like in our own lives. Metaphorically, who hasn't plunked down their crab pots to pull them up and find them empty. Just ask my stock broker - he does that for me over and over again. I guess crab fishing is a metaphor for life?

Who are your favorite characters? Boats? Why do you watch the show?

Dude,

I know you likely already saw the new episode, but Kieth is starting to take my second best captain vote, Sig still rules, and DAMN the guy can haul some crab! His Opie string averaged >600/pot!

Andy Hilstrand has those amphetamine eyes, he looks so flippin' jacked up it's hard to believe they put him on TV!!!

Poor Paul, he's screwed, do you think he'll go out on one engine??

I think you mean Phil on the Cornelia Marie, he better not go out on 1 engine, opie season has worse weather than King crab season & it would be foolish to do so.
I wondered if Phil's heart would explode before his engine!

Screw those captains, Edgar Hanson is an iron man!
When he & Sig had the contest to see who could go longer Edgar working his butt off on the deck outlasted Sig who was sitting on his butt in the wheelhouse!

You are right on both counts Moose!

That was a great episode when they did that, what was it like 40 hours+ non stop working??

I've done that once or twice in my training, it SUCKS!

Jerry,

I was online, well, always, and was trying to find some good Northwestern golf shirt for you and it doesn't exist! You can get a baseball hat, which I suspect you'd never wear, or a lame T-Shirt.....

I want top level Northwestern gear NOW!!!!!!
