Product Description

Disc 1. Greenhorns - Long Sleepless Nights - Lady Luck 1 x 120:00 min Greenhorns 1500 fisherman have converged on Dutch Harbour, Alaska, for the beginning of the 2005 Alaskan King Crab season. Each man is here to stake his claim on the 14,267,000 pounds of Alaskan King Crab and the chance at earning a year's wages in just one week Long Sleepless Nights After a long night of baiting and setting crab pots, the fisherman anxiously await the captain's call to begin fishing. As soon as the first pots are pulled it becomes evident that some boats are on the money, while others are pulling blanks. The early losers agonise over strategy, hoping to make up for a lost catch. Lady Luck It's hour 42 of the 2005 Alaskan King Crab season and all of the boats in the fleet have dropped their pots. Every captain feeld the pressure: they either find crab today or give up their chance at a profitable season. Decisions need to be made, should the crews stay put or should they gamble on a new location? Disc 2. Beat The Clock - Dead Of Winter - Man Overboard 1 x 120:00 min Beat The Clock With less than half a day left, all of the crews are racing against the clock to get as much crab into their holding tanks as possible. When the season closes at midnight, the race to unload begins. Dead Of Winter It is the dead of winter in Dutch Hqarbour, Alaska, where the days are a mere 6 hours long. The forecast for crab fishing is cold and dangerous. The Opilio Crab season is about to begin. On a cold January day, 171 boats begin the long journey 450 miles northwest of Dutch HArbour. At noon the Opilio Crab season begins. Man Overboard The 2006 Opilio season didn't start, it stumbled! One of the boats sunk and its crew is still missing. "Good Samaritan" boats postpone their season as they search the frigid waters of the Bering Sea for survivors. As the remaining 170 boats in the fleet turn their attention back to fishing, tragedy strikes again. Disc 3. High Hopes - Good Fishing - The Clock's Ticking - The Final Run 1 x 160:00 min High Hopes As the weather turns for the better, fishing is madae easier, and for the first time this season, there is a moment of calm on the Bering Sea. Good Fishing The third and fourth days of the 2005 Opilio Crab season produces record catches and each captain speculates on when the quota will be met. The Clock's Ticking The hunt for crab is intensifying and rumours of a possible early closure prompt the crews to push even harder. The Final Run As the last hours of the season tick down, a new race begins, the sprint back to port. Since off loading is done on a first come first served basis, captains are competing for the best spot in line.

5.0 out of 5 stars Utterly gripping - genuine reality TV 29 Aug 2007
At last! a documentary in which the real-life people are just that - people doing their job and not being 'personalities' for the camera. This show demonstrates great filming (how the *!* did they do it??), great leadership and very brave men and women on the Bering Sea. It's just about the only show I make an effort to watch 'live', and at last it's come to the UK on Ch4 too!

Great for watching whilst huddled up indoors with a mug of hot chocolate: makes you realise how your own job is not really that taxing after all...

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent show, however..... 26 Feb 2009
To anyone who's seen Deadliest Catch either on Discovery or on terrestrial TV, this is a must-own, a chance to see the whole first series back to back as it's often shown out of sequence on TV.

However I was rather disappointed to find that this is the US version of the show, with the US narrator, so for those of us used to the UK version the new voiceover takes a bit of getting used to.

But you get used to it quickly enough and can get back to watching one of the greatest reality TV shows on the air.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth staying in for! 27 Aug 2007
By Zippy
This is only the second programme that I have made a point of staying in for. I will not miss a single episode as it takes you away from your ordinary life and your job to the high seas where you live each high wave and every second of danger with the men on board. It is addictive and leaves you feeling glad that you are safe at home and do not have to spend one minute let alone 5 days at sea with the ferocious waves and threat of losing your life. Watch it and you will always be grateful for your peaceful home!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best 27 July 2007
Not the type of tv show a 15 year old girl should be into really. But with 40 foot waves, freezing cold temperatures and almost always 100% injury rate the Deadliest Catch series has taken me personally be heart. If you enjoy eating crab, then i suggest you buy now and see how much it takes to put it on your plate. The best TV show out there.

5.0 out of 5 stars great tv show 29 Dec 2012
By Tim
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Good to get something out of TV once in a while, an appreciation and understanding of something etc. Also started watching deadliest catch lobstermen. Bought the first series to see whether or not to get the full 1-7 still hasn't convinced me but that's mainly due to the price, this is really good TV though and offers more than the possible initial thought "how can they serialise fishermen going off to get some more crab" the premise seems like a one off special but the episodic nature suits the type of show it is and builds the ongoing sacrifice these guys make both on the water and being away from the land. Resonates a lot with viewers and is well regarded by nearly anyone who watches it
