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.

Highly Addictive
25 April 2007 | by (Buffalo, NY) – See all my reviews

I never really watched this series and paid any attention to it until about a month ago when Discovery debated their "Planet Earth" series, and this was on afterwords.

This is the kind of show that sucks you in so far you don't even realize you've been tensely waiting to see what happens next, and the great part is, you least expect it. A highly addicting show as you see the struggles, hours and long shift these brave men throw forward in order to meet their quota of crab. (They're braver than I am, I hate the cold.)You also get to know the crew and the different personalities. As serious and dangerous as a job as this is it's nice to see the lightened mood, and the subtle pranks played on each other, and the pots of other boats. This beats the heck out of tired reality shows with rich has been celebrities wining about everything and anything (never watched them anyhow). If you want to see real people, and exciting situations, I highly suggest this show! 10/10.

Discovery channel makes more of a fan out of me each year, first "Mythbusters", "Dirty Jobs" and the occasional mini series event (ie: "Planet Earth") The Medical Mystery programs are also fascinating.
