The Deadliest Catch, a strangely addictive reality series on the Discovery Channel about the Alaskan Crab Fishing Profession, has managed to capture me. I am not a reality show fan. I generally find them to be fake, forced, and far from real. This show is different. I am sure that there is a good deal of self serving activity for the camera, but when the action is in full tilt the crabbers have no time to worry about cameras, they are too busy surviving in the treacherous waters. There is the usual drama that comes from people interacting with each other especially in high stress situations.
I’ve watched Season 1, most of Season 2, and all of Season 4. I can watch it for hours on end without getting tired of it. I am not sure exactly what it is about this show but I can’t get enough!
