Goofs

The locations given for boats on the "radar" screen do not match what the narrator says. For example, one boat was said to be 225 miles Northwest of Dutch Harbor was marked further away than a boat said to be 290 miles Northwest of Dutch Harbor. Another time this occurred when it was said that one boat was a certain shorter distance away from a boat in a southerly direction appeared further away than another boat that was said to be further away, yet appeared closer on the map.

Nothing quite like it out there - which isn't to say it can't or shouldn't be done more.
16 October 2008 | by (Nova Scotia, Canada) – See all my reviews

"Deadliest Catch" is not reality TV. Though one might be forgiven for mistaking it as such. It is, in fact, the very heart and soul of what reality TV was originally conceived to be. It differs from the traditional documentary form in the sense that there's no real narrative structure - it is simply people doing what they do, with as little interference as possible. There are no staged events, and no hired actors. What is more, the people involved are working for their living, and have no such aspirations to the contrary.

But that's not to say that this series doesn't include some pretty dramatic personalities. Men like Phil Harris, Sig Hansen, and Jonathan Hillstrand are impressive, larger than life men. You get to know just about every bit of what drives them throughout the series. That's what drives the interest factor of "Deadliest Catch". Real people doing real things. We're not encouraged to have a particular like or dislike for any one person. And if we do, it's only a reflection on who the person really is.

Note to those involved in reality TV - don't try this yourself - you'll only muck it up.
