By far the best thing on the telly! I cancelled my Sky subscription some time ago and this was the only program I missed so I just buy each box set as and when it is released. I also bought the ones I'd already seen on Sky. It's a case of watching an episode and then thinking "I'll just watch one more..." and before you know it your whole afternoon is gone!
If you liked the other series of Deadliest Catch, you'll enjoy series 4 - which is the 2008 King and Opellio crab fishing. New boats new people, as well as some of the well known faces and personalities.
I have watched these some time ago on discovery channel so started to buy them on DVD ,from the first episode up to now series 6 I can't stop watching them the hours of work all these guys do is unbelievable , so I'm gonna order 7/8/9 right now...
Just finished d the 7 series box set, addictive, the captains of the various boats make the series.The conditions they have to cope with are unreal. Work and safety would have a field day !!.A must for any collection
If you enjoyed watching these on tv then you will love the series on dvd. They can be watched over and over. If you've never watched before then watch with amazement while these fisherman do the hardest job on earth (or sea). Huge waves, working without sleep in the most dangerous conditions of sea, ice and the boat rocking and rolling while they haul crab over the side. Sometimes men have been lost doing this job,as they've gone overboard but still they do it. The rewards can be huge as the crab bring great prices but the cost to life and limb can be fatal. I'm in awe of these guys, I couldn't imagine doing a more horrible job in the freezing wet conditions and the hours they work is incredible. But the friendships seem to last a lifetime, sometimes they are brothers, one captain even has his wife on the boat, and the way they see all their fishermen friends as brothers doing the same job is fantastic, still the competitiveness with other boats is still there.
