You have to really, really concentrate and know what you're doing. You don't have the luxury of screwing up.

Yeah, it's a great lifestyle.

    Just want to mention to Phil's boys that I wish them all the best since their Dad's passing back in January 2010. Show your Father proud guys :)
  • I love the show \"Deadliest catch\", it never gets boring, thats for sure. Finally a show that the family can all watch together. Plus, it gives us women lots of guys to fantasize about, (we all have our favorites, mine is capt. Phil).moreless

    I am totally hooked on \\\"deadliest catch\\\", It\\\'s the first t.v. show in years that I go out of my way to watch. it\\\'s also the first show in years that the whole family enjoys watching together. I think Capt. Phil is the most gorgeous guy i\\\'ve ever seen. Even his voice is sexy, and i bet he even has a nice hairy chest. (Yes guys, some of us women like that). He doesn\\\'t seem to have the bad temper that some of the other guys get. I would really like to know more about his personal life. I mean, what do these guys all do on the off-season?moreless
