Used to love the show - actually, still do, but we are so sick of the screen clutter - the on-screen ads were bad enough, but now having to deal with the junior-high crowd plastering "Tweets" or whatever this hash-tag garbage is ,is nothing but distracting - ruins the show. I cannot believe that Discovery feels the need to cover up the action with tacky groupie messages. The show is supposed to be about crab fishing, not a place for juvenile texters to get 10 seconds of fame. If this continues, we're done with the show.
This show used to be appointment viewing for me about 7 or 8 years ago. But there is literally NOTHING new during every season... the fake little dramas they set up are completely uninteresting. "Will Edgar stay or go?" Who cares, you know he'll stay, where else is he gonna make this kind of money? They catch some crab, they have a rough season, they have some lame, staged practical jokes... it's all so tired I couldn't even get through the hour last night; because I'd seen the same episode before at least 50 times.
I have been a fan of the show since Season 4. I remember Ships and captains that have came and left. Phil Harris was one who didn't have a choice in the matter. But, WHEN Josh boards the Cornelia Marie for King Crab '14, Phil will once again sail the Bearing sea with his son. Now, if he can find out who broke into his storage locker at Dutch Harbor. Jake? Where were you?
Its advertised and the cast members act like their doing the hardest most dangerous job in the world lol. That isn't nothing much more then what millions of us down in the lower 48 do 365 days a year, not a couple months and then go sit on our ass for most the year. A REAL badass (like us Arborist) don't have to brag about it neither.
Your main characters are bullies, adulterous idiots, cheating liars, children playing with explosives, and captains who are not worth their word. I'm not sure I care for the producers who have encouraged these behaviors since the first year. They think any conflict is good conflict.
Your ass should be sued !! I hope the greenhorn sues your boat right out from under you. Freddy is nothing but a brown-noser bully as well. You deserve NO respect. Just because you can't captain your boat or catch any crab you blame & bully a person who was only standing up for his rights. He was the only MAN on that ship ! You disgust a joke to fishermen as for being a captain, I wouldn't ley you pilot my rowboat up the river ! will get you just set off some bad ju-ju on your ship.
I can not believe the way Freddie and Keith Bullied the greenhorn. This kind of behavior should not be allowed, I hope the kids sues them for harassment! More disappointing was that none of the other captains called Keith out. He is such a joke as a captain. This is not the first time he has showed his ass on the show, just the worse so far. I guess they are trying to make people believe if you don't go along with everyone and you try to think for yourself then it is ok for people to pick on you and threaten you. This country was formed by people thinking for themselves and standing up for what is right. Thats what makes it great! As we approach the 4th of July we should embrace thinking for ourselves to do whats right and stop watching such a pro bullying show with a brunch of ignorant bullies!
Come on Wizard, use you're brains a little bit. Because the captain didn't have the courage to accept responsibility for not catching any crab, he and the crew tried to force the greenhorn to do something he didn't want to do in order for the crab to swim in their pots. What kind of idiots are these people, that think shaving their heads would make any difference in how many crab they catch. The greenhorn has the right to sue the Captain of the Wizard for everything he has, jut for the fact that the idiot Captain hit him. The Wizard Captain and his crew are nothing but a bunch of superstitious boneheads. Grow up guys!
My husband and I have been big fans of the Deadliest Catch since the beginning, but after the show this week we are very disappointed. We get the fact that having your hair cut on Capt. Keith's boat is a tradition, but it shouldn't mean it's OK for him to allow Freddie and/or anyone else to bully someone! We find it disgusting and have lost all respect for Keith and Freddie!!! Can't believe how demeaning they are to each other? Don't think we will watch anymore
Hi mussy111, The opening song is "Dead or Alive" by BonJovi. The opening sequence is so short now, it sounds like a second or two of instruments and I can't tell if it changed for Season 9. Oh, I just checked Wikipedia, it also says "Wanted Dead or Alive" is the opening theme, and it includes season 9, so there we go :-)
I hope Elliott and all the other skippers realize that Junior is a f______ b______. He is a small thinker. Instead of looking at the big picture and his future he is only thinking about making the most money now. They all should put him on their "pay him no mind" list. Elliott , you shouldnt give him the time of day. My great-grandfather was a fisherman, my dad said back in the day, Junior would have been run out of the waters!! HE is one A______!!
At first I though Elliot was an a** and hoped he lost everything, However after watching junior stab two skippers after he called them for help. Hope the crew gets off safe but junior should go down with the ship. How funny juniors lack of keeping his crew safe medically has him asking keith again . Bottomline Junior needs to sink!!!!!10.0
I truly cannot stand the fact that some executive decided to make their viewers look at stupid screen ads during the show! Like "Tweet info, Deadliest Catch All New Now and the HD sign. Its the viewers that keep your ratings high!!! Give us a break and remove thoae stupid ads!!! Irs bad enough to edure 50 commercials during a one hour show!!!
Olivia. I agree that Louis`s artlclee is really cool... on sunday I bought Lotus Esprit when I got my cheque for $4346 this-past/four weeks and-also, 10 grand last-month. without a question it is the most-comfortable work I've ever done. I actually started three months/ago and straight away started making at least $70 per-hour. I use the details here, -- Gig60,com
I am a longtime fan of Deadliest catch from the very beginning and I am also a parent of an adhd kid. I did not appreciate the comment that was made by Captain Bill's son on the Cape Caution. Someone needs to remind this man or rather ignorant boy that adhd is not a "special needs case" but his lack of knowledge is and maybe he should be looked at by a doctor. I hope that this reaches someone who cares. I truly hope that maybe these guys on the show read some of these comments that are posted
International Maritime Satire Week Warning: The following is a piece of fiction intended to elicit insight through the use of satire and written by those who do not make a living being funny so it's not serious and very well might not be funny but apparently producer Todd Stanley thought so (see comments below).
SILVER SPRING, MDFollowing a loss in ratings to NBC's Stars Earn Stripes, the Discovery Channel has decided to change the setting of its award-winning reality fishing show Deadliest Catch to the South China Sea.
Sources indicate that Discovery intended to cancel the series until Deadliest Catch producer Thom Beers presented the idea of moving the setting to either the Strait of Hormuz or the South China Sea. With the annual ratings boost from Shark Week a year away, Discovery elected to keep the show and film the next season in the hotly contested Southeast Asian waters.
When asked about the drastic change, Beers said, "The South China Sea is a great move for the series and the hardy American fishing crews viewers have come to love Wizard, Time Bandit, Northwestern, Cornelia Marie, they'll all be there. It's home to a competitive fishing environment and surrounded by countries that have a passion for the sea. You've got Chinese, Filipinos, Vietnamese, Malaysians, and Indonesians out there sailing together. Now we're throwing Americans right into the middle of this great, dynamic
Beers explained that the region's depleted fishing stocks will actually enhance the show's intensity because it raises the stakes for the competing fishing vessels. "These guys will be fighting each other for every single fishliterally," said Beers said with a grin.
Sig Hansen, Captain of the fishing vessel Northwestern, also expressed confidence in adapting to the new environment. "If there's one thing that we need to master right away, it's persistence. We can't turn around no matter what or who is in front of Hansen also talked about the safety situation. "In the Bering Sea, we didn't always have the Coast Guard backing us up because of the conditions. However, we're told that in the South China Sea all these different nations send in their Coast Guard and military vessels to patrol the area. It's a lot safer in my
The crews of Deadliest Catch will face many exciting new challenges in the 9th Season.
The lack of an American port does not deter Beers from basing the show in the region. His team plans to set up their base on one of the sea's many islands. Producer Todd Stanley, Beers' partner, said "Look, a lot of these islands, like the Spratly's, don't have any residents. We're thinking, why not go in take one for ourselves? Of course, we would do the proper legal thing and make sure to hoist an American flag to keep everyone
Stanley revealed that the ships could just anchor at the Scarborough Shoal if they cannot find an island. "We'll just follow the Chinese model, if necessary, and show up with an old-looking map with some lines drawn around things. I've got an old place-mat from my childhood. Do these dashes around Australia mean I own it? Who knows, they could just be spaghetti stains the important point is it would take the UN years to sort through our
When asked for a statement, the Association of Southeast Asians (ASEAN) could not respond with an official comment. Deputy Press Secretary Naoko Saiki believes that the story is a hoax. "It's hard to believe America is home to a television series about crab fishingthis is probably fabricated by one of the nationalist groups in the region. Everyone knows that Americans only watch Jack
Discovery announced that they are also moving Sons of Guns to Iraq and American Loggers to the forests in Colombia. Production on Season 9 starts in October and will premiere on the Discovery Channel in early April.
Where do I begin? This show is so boring that I would honestly rather watch the TV Guide channel. It basically is the same stupid thing every time. Same thing, different day. It's bad enough that there are so many re-runs on tv, but how about new episodes that feel like re-runs? What is so entertaining about fishing anyway? Honestly I don't understand why some guys are such Neanderthals. Isn't there anything better to do with your time than to watch a bunch of guys go out on a boat and catch fish and crabs? I guess it's better than sitting on a frozen lake for hours with a pole in the ice, to get one measly fish when you can just buy it in the store anyway.
The World's Deadliest Catch is the best reality show ever documented. The producers have done a wonderful job, showing us how the crew work together, get along, or not get along, and how deadly things can turn in an instance.
The Deadliest Catch is the best reality show ever produced. This show keeps me on the edge of my seat, every week. I can't wait until the next show airs to see what will happen. The producers have done an outstanding job, making us all feel as though we are right there with them. I find myself sitting on the edge of my seat, praying for all the ships and their crew, as we all know what can, and has happen in the past. This documentary proves that this is by far, the Deadliest Job, and my hat is off to those brave enough to capture these crew, in their element, and bring this to us in our living rooms. They have done a fine job in making us understand, how truly dangerous this job is, and how the weather can be great one minute and then quickly turn deadly in the next. They have shown us how unpredictable and unforgiving the Bering Sea can be. They have introduced us to the crew of these ships, and you feel as though you know them, you definitely care and worry about them. I give this show ten stars, easily. If you have never watched it, watch it, because if your not watching this show, you are truly missing a classic in the making.
I liked it Somewhat. The show was OK. Man, It really needs some work. If it lasted a few more seasons, It would be a great Hit! It is not really my kind of show, either. I like Animes, Action and cartoon Type shows. It does, however gave me some kind of a motivation that i want to do later in life.
I don't watch too much television, but I managed to have the misfortune of watching this program. If you like watching the most mind-numbing, repetitive shots of cage after cage of crabs being poured onto a ship...
I don't watch too much television, but I managed to have the misfortune of watching this program. If you like watching the most mind-numbing, repetitive shots of cage after cage of crabs being poured onto a ship coupled with a desperate attempt at making it seem glamorous ("DAMMNNN thats some hot crab") then this program is for you. Seriously awful the only way feeling your soul slowly die as more and more crabs get paraded on the program. The only way to convey how dull this program could be to replace every word in this review with 'crab' and read it out loud in a monotone, crab like fashion. It wasn't even a deadly catch - it was crabs; boring, unimaginative, mindless....basically television full stop.
The Staab brothers need to go back to tree hugging and whatever else kept them away from fishing for so many years. Trying to tag on to the others shirt tails is just not becoming to an overweight undersized wimpy daddy's boy who has to beg for his father to give him a shot. Obviously he hasn't done too well for himself in the past. I cringe every time that cocky little jerk opens his mouth. Just another attempt at being accepted. It will never happen. Go back to Dad and beg for forgiveness for embarrassing his entire family. It's terrible that he (sten staab) is just trying to cash in on the others sucess. Leave it to the professionals, He has no redeeming qualities that even make him tolerable to watch. I pray every episode that they catch s tankful of starfish. What a poor excuse for a crab fisherman. He is so far out of the league of the others it's a sin.
This show is awesome. This is the realest television that you can watch. It's the most addicting show I have ever seen my entire life. Anybody who doesn't love this show doesn't understand how intense it is... I love it! The show is not only about how dangerous their profession is, which is certainly illustrated, but also it is about family dynamics, friendship, and the real life of a fisherman. These guys are funny, intense, and trying to make a living. This is a tough career, and a seldom few men can actually handle the torture their bodies go through, sometimes working for 50 hours straight. Hard labor too. Ultimately, I think that this is an awesome show and everyone should give it a try.
