Show Summary

The Bering Sea holds the secret to Alaskan Gold, the highly lucrative and elusive…King Crab. With a new set of rules to abide by the ships and the crews will have new deadlines, more stress, and more dangerous conditions. With forty-foot waves, 700 pound crab pots, freezing temperatures and your mortality staring you in the face…this job ranks as one of the deadliest. Any time spent of the Bering Sea is dangerous, we watch crews race to meet their quota and make it home safely.

    REVIEW FOR EPISODE 5/19/2015: EPISODE: Elliott Neese bids Farewell. The SAGA is under duress and as Elliott continues to spiro down the dark hold of addictions. The relief captain is trying to keep the boat going. But bad crab count and ongoing conflict between the crew and Elliott almost causes a serious accident. Finally, at port for their off load, Elliott leaves to who know where to do who know what. NORTHWESTERN. Sig jokes about Jakes upcoming fatherhood. As a view, who cares about this? It has nothing to do with the theme of this show. Jake is running the hydro's with a tangled pot comes up. His lack of attention causes damage to the boom. But he has on the boat. For real, Jake will NEVER be as good as Edgar. WIZARD. Keith has to get thing straight with the crew and the injured crew men. The meeting is short and to the point. The boat is stuffed and heads for port. CORNELIA MARIE. Josh is in port for his first king craw offload. Keith visits and notes the poor conditions of the deck. He points this out to Josh. He urges Josh to fish Bairdi, but Josh want to stick with king crab. Keith ever offers to tell him were to fish. But, Josh will not hear anything of it. I hope his lax attitude will not be the down fall of this boat. Sometimes you do need help getting going. REVIEW FOR EPISODE 5/12/2015: EPISODE: Super Typhoon Part 2. CORNELIA MARIE. Josh get has first real challenge with the fleet fighting through a super typhoon. Monster waver and wind. He finally gives up the seat to his trainer and lights up cigarette after cigarette after cigarette. On dick, the crab counts in miserable. Finally, safety takes precedence over fishing and they head for cover. NORTHWESTERN: With Edgar our sick, the ship has to rely on Jake to be Mr. Fix It. They lose steering and with some luck, Mr. Fix It finds the problem. Like the Cornelia Marie, Sig finally shuts down and heads for cover. WIZZARD: Keith keeps pounding the boat and crew as they are cramming the tanks. Finally, the ship is full. SAGA: Captain Elliott is not shaken his drug demon so the First Mate takes the helm and Elliott goes on deck. Stumbling and bumbling on the deck is not helping the crew. Time will tell. REVIEW FOR EPISODE 5/5/2015: EPISODE: Super Typhoon. Part 1. On the NORTHWESTERN, everything as usual. Hard work and good grab. CAPE CAUTION. On the crab, but hoping to beat the typhoon. The boat is full, heads to safe harbor. WIZARD. They are still on the crab, but Keith is not happy with one crew member that was injured, but not caring his weight. He was made arrangement for a replacement, but needs him on the boat now. He calls the SAGA and asks Elliott if he could bring the new troop out to him. Elliott agrees. SAGA. In the process of making a transfer of the new crew man for the WIZARD, one of his crew men breaks his arm. The transfer finally is accomplished, but now what will Elliott do with his injured crew man. REVIEW FOR EPISODE 4/28/2015: EPISODE: The Ultimatum. SAGA: Typical Elliott. Thinking he is a great captain. Considering his past, he is lucky to still be on a boat. NORTHWESTERN: Sig wants to get Edgar for snow crab. Medically, Edgar has some bad discs in his back. All Sig is concerned about is can he still make it back for snow crab season. Let's see Sig work the dick for 10 or 20 years and see what physical condition he is in. CORNELIA MARIE: After 3 weeks delay for a broken this and that, Josh finally get the boat fishing, or you could call it pulling empty pots. A move suggested by his training captain finally put him on the king crab. WIZARD: A crew member is injured and is off the deck for a while. All you hear is bitching and a lot waa waa. Keith finally lays down the law. Work or pack your bags. REVIEW FOR EPISODE 4/21/2015: EPISODE: Prodigal Son. This episode starts with the attempt to get the CORNELIA MARIE away from the dock. After sitting for several days because one part didn't arrive, the bug blue craft finally fires up and creeps away from the dock. But, not more than a mile later, oops, the alarm goes off. Locally, just a loose nut. Finally, let's go fishing. WIZZARD. Crab, crab and more crab. NORTHWESTERN. Edgar finally tells Sig about his back problems. Waa waa was Sig's response. One good thing about this boat is the quality of the crew, with one exception. Jake, the wanta be captain. I would like to see Sig work the deck for 5 or 6 years like Edgar has done. TIMEBANDIT. For one, Jonathan is happy with another ship's captain. Keith on the WIZARD gave the bandit the word where the crabs were. Keith was right. REVIEW FOR EPISODE 4/14/2015: EPISODE: Lost in Translation. Before Season Starts. To start, I can't believe Sig and Edgar would become soft criminals in stealing the Cape Caution as a joke. This is not the quality we expect from them. Wild Bill should have called the Coast Guard. And then there was Jake Anderson, the wanta be god's gift to crab fleet. He is a deck hand at best, no better. NORTHWESTERN: Strikes out by themselves; hits the jack pot and drives the crew for days until they are discovered. TIME BANDIT: Johnathan: What can we say about him? It is hard to understand what side he is on. The good guy who will help someone in distress or the bad guy who will attack a fellow captain. He did start out on new grounds but just enough king crab for a small dinner. SAGA: Nothing has changed. In theory, Elliott, went though treatment. In reality, he is still the Elliott of past season. Complain, complain, complain. AND, lazy! CAPE CAUTION: Wild Bill is still Wild Bill. Complains when one of his motors breaks down and is not fixed in a flash. Why didn't he do it? He did hit a hop spot, but mother nature hit him with vengeance. WIZARD: Keith started out the season on a bad note. A partner boat that he had worked with for years with his own way and took 40% if his king crab allocation. And, when he found a hot spot, the other boat showed up, trying to horn in on this spot. Fortunately, the Time Bandit came and help Keith defend his area. CORNELIA MARIE: After being out of the fleet for several years after the captain's death and Josh being the boat back last season, hopes were for a good start this season. But, the boat didn't even make it to Dutch Harbor, breaking down enroute. A week's delay and still not all the parts arrived. Good start for some and bad start for others.moreless
  • No Longer a Family Show

    3.5
    We have watched every episode of DC. If Elliott Neese is back next season we are done watching. 5/19 show went too far--showing him scratching his crotch and rambling endlessly about himself. The lesson should be quick--do drugs and you are done. While our children are grown, lots of young children idolize these captains and making Elliott a hero is disgusting and wrong. As older viewers, we are tired of listening to him whine and were disappointed to see him back for this season. Really.moreless
  • I Love Deadliest Catch but Please Get Rid of Captain Colburn and Freddy of the Wizard

    8.0
    Overall I love the show "Deadliest Catch", but I wish they would kick Captain Keith Colburn and Freddy Maugatai off the show forever, then I could give the show 5 stars with the Wizard either gone or under new management.



    I like the way Captain Keith Colburn could care less about the rest of his crew, but he sure loves his pet Deckhand Freddy Maugatai. When Freddy got hurt, Captain Colburn was so concerned, maybe they are lovers. I say that because he never showed compassion for anybody else, ever. It would be nice if they would just kick Keith Colburn and his bad attitude off the show "Deadliest Catch", I cringe when I have to hear his arrogant and sarcastic comments. What is Freddy, some kind of Samoan? When I was in the military and stationed in Hawaii, it was always the Samoans that caused trouble; they were very huge and always angry people that openly hated all whites (they told us that directly). That is why now, I do not like Samoans at all. Freddy might seem cool when he shows out in front of the camera, but I bet off camera he causes trouble. Remember how Capt Colburn and Keith treated that poor greehorn that didn't want to shave his head? That is when I first started hating the Wizard Captain and Freddy the Samoan. I can't apologize to Samoans if you people are offended, you people did hate whites because you tried to start trouble with us by trying to gang up on us and tried to cause harm to us; you actually yelled that you hated us because we were white. You also called us that derogatory word Haole. Do you stil celebrate Kill Haole Day in the State of Hawaii? Racism is not cool no matter who does it.moreless
  • Commenting on All Captains

    10
    Way to go to all of the Captains on the Deadliest Catch. My brother was a Captain on a scallop boat for 35 years in Va. Im sure its different than crabs but you are still on the seas for a long periods of time. My brother passed away a year ago due to liver cancer but he rode the seas until he could not do it any longer. The show is wonderful and I want to say Good job Josh. Your father is watching you.moreless
