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.

starting off,i was not impressed with this reality series.the first episode starts off slower than molasses uphill in January.eventually it picks up.the second episode is much better,as we get into the action much quicker.the show is interesting,showing what the crab fishermen go through and how grueling it is.it also shows how dangerous it is.apparently there is an almost 100 percent injury rate and a very strong risk of death or permanent injury.it is obviously very dangerous.however,some of these crab fishermen could make enough money in weeks or less to live for an entire year.in any event the show is amusing, entertaining and sad all at once.i would give "Deadliest Catch:Crab Fishing in Alaska" 3/5
