Fishing documentary has become a great drama

I love this show from the discovery channel, it's one of my all-time favorites. Other than some bleeped language and constant smoking on some of the boats there really isn't anything bad about this documentary. Some scenes may be a little intense, and from time to time a little blood can be seen from accidents on deck, but nothing most older kids can't handle.

The Best Show on TV!

I watch very little TV but this show is good enough that I'll watch any episode anytime. It never seems fake or made up, is always exciting, and it has made me look at crab in an entirely different way. It seems a miracle to me that more men aren't hurt or killed in this extreme profession. Also, it amazes me that more boats don't go down in the dreadful weather in the Bering Sea. This is a fantastic show and I hope it runs forever. I have already bought the First Season DVD set and will buy any others as soon as they come out.

A few words do slip by

I was led to believe by all the other reviews that all the language was beeped out, but a few words make it through. Such as pi** and d*mn. My sons do not normally hear these words, so I wish I would have known ahead of time. I'm mentioning this so that parents will have full information and can make decision for themselves.

Deadliest Catch is Great

I love Deadliest Catch. My son actually watches it with his Dish Remote Access app on his phone. He showed me how to get it on my phone and I have been a fan ever since. I never knew how difficult it would be to fish for crab or how large the rewards could be. A coworker at Dish said she has seen the coast guard rescue a couple people on this show so some of the situations do get a little tense. That being said it does teach kids to have a strong work ethic. The relationships a lot of these captains share with their sons is nice to see as well.

Enjoyable to watch!

We enjoy watching this show together. The only thing to watch out for, imho, is some of the language ~ but they *do* beep it out. Some of the crew members smoke, but, again, certainly not the most horrible thing kids could be seeing! My son knows that smoking isn't a good thing. We focus on the teamwork and the hard work and discipline of the crew!

Excellent show

Even the Deadliest Catch episode about the film crew was excellent! This show is the best "reality" show out there - there is some drama, some censored swearing, etc. But the show has real people, real hard working Americans, and the trials they go through in a particular field. The show clearly demonstrates the importance of teamwork and camaraderie, and the edginess of someone out of the fold. The humor is well-natured. One of the crew members was in trouble with the law, and when he returned to the ship, the rest of the crew celebrated (with him) by torching his old gear to symbolize his past was behind him. I think that's great! Mike Rowe does a great job narrating, and the film crew gets incredibly difficult shots in the midst of four story waves. I watch this show so much that my wife gets upset! "Not this show again!!" :P
