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.

Deadliest catch is based on the real life drama aboard a series of crabfishing boats in Alaska, i never knew how they got onto my plate till iI watched an episode of this show, the crewmen are amazing at doing their job, it is full of what will happen next?, and the action, and the beating the crew gets by storms and the occasional greenhorn pranks keep me hooked to this show all put together expertly narrated by Mike Rowe. My only problem i have is phil who you cannot understande because he is always swearing all you can hear are beeps(sort of like ozzy osbourne) But he is one hell of a captain, Whether it is grinding through ice with a ship that wasn't built for doing that kind of work or rescuing people overboard all the ships deserve our respect for their labor to catch these crabs nearly without fear of drowning or dying some awful death.
