Before complaining about the market price of Alaska king crab, check out this gripping documentary series, revealing the mortal perils and intense discomfort that fishing crews face on the Bering Sea to catch the delicacy. Those perils include 40-foot waves, 700-pound crab pots that can easily crush a careless crewman, and freezing temperatures around the clock. Written by

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.

A truly awe inspiring glimpse into the lives of the brave fisherpeople who risk their lives so that we may eat their bounty. When I first heard about this show, I remember saying "no way. Why on earth would I want to watch a show about crab fishing." It sounded dreadful. Utterly utterly horrible. A complete waste of time. But then I gave it a try. "Why not? YOLO" I remember saying. I've never looked back! I can confidently say that that decision was my GREATEST decisions in my entire T.V watching life. Even more than my decision to watch breaking bad! The danger of the Bering sea coupled with the sheer camaraderie between the brave crabbers on the boat really draws you in. The grit and determination the people have on the show have inspired me in my own life. Last year after watching every episode back to back I finally got the courage to leave my house. I had been living in fear of the outside world for much of my life until the heroes on this show gave me the kick up the behind that I needed. Their courage gave me courage. Thank you brave men of the Bering sea. Thank you for my life.
