Deadliest Catch

Deadliest Catch

It's the world's deadliest job-where a man could die every week-the most macho of manly occupations: the Alaskan crab fisherman. Deadliest Catch features the wild and treacherous life of the crab fisherman.

This dramatic series will document the end of an era-what veteran crab fishermen are calling The Last Rodeo.

The first season documents the last time race, as it is the last season where they are pitted against the clock. Later seasons contains a less action packed theme, and delves deeper into the lives and minds of those on the boats. We follow the crews through laughter and sorrow while on the hunt for crab.

The series is dedicated to the brave men and women lost at sea, and to the families they left behind. And to Phil Harris, the captain of the Cornelia Marie, who died on February 9, 2010.

Warning: This show is not scripted, and every injury and/or death appearing is real. Take note of this if you are viewing it with children and/or people sensitive to blood and graphic scenes.

Episode Info

Prev: 10x01 -- Careful What You Wish For (Apr/22/2014)

In the first episode, opening season comes and goes as the captains have been grounded by of all things — politics. For the first time in nearly two decades, a government shutdown brings Washington, D.C., to a screeching halt with its far-reaching effects going well beyond the Beltway.
Eventually the shutdown ends, but it's just the beginning for the captains. Up against a ticking clock of a shortened season, a late start means greater competition than ever before. With a deadline to offload looming and millions of dollars on the line, the captains must lay down the hammer and fish through treacherous weather in hopes of catching their crab on time. With less time and their income at stake, how much can they push their crews before major injury — or even death — strikes?

The Best of the Reality ShowsRating: 3 likes, 0 dislikes

You can't watch this show and not get hooked. The characters are real, although it seems a little cheezy to call them characters. They are just ordinary men doing what they need to to support their families. Whatever demons they face on land are left there as they focus all of their energy in just surviving. This is what reality TV should really be!!! Read more
