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.

I don't know what to call this.
7 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Is this a documentary? Is this reality TV? I don't know, but I do know to call it addictive. What these men go through to put seafood on our plate is amazing. This is especially true during Opie season -- fishing on the Bering Sea, always one of the most dangerous waterways in the world, but doing it in January. Crabbing in 40-50 foot waves, temperatures near or below zero, winds 30 MPH+, ice on the deck, swinging 800 pound pots, to say nothing of the nasty claw-wielding crabs. These guys deserve our gratitude for risking it all to put the seafood we love on our table. Our entire family has Tuesdays as must-see-TV. We couldn't wait to buy the season 1 DVDs and now we are looking forward to season 2 being available soon. This is one of the best shows on one of the best networks on TV. Thank you Discovery Channel.
