    anyone watch this show?

    I find this show strangely addictive.

    don't really know what it is...maybe it is just the suspense of seeing the pots came up and wondering how many crabs are in them, and then seeing if i am right.

    i don't know why i can't stop watching it.

    Love the show. If there's a marathon on, I watch it all the way through.

    Then I'll watch it again if it's on the next day...

    Oh I love this show... and I can't for the life of me figure out why it is so addictive. Sig has to be my favorite. You never quite know what's about to come out of his mouth.

    And I love how they use mechanical noises for the curse word "BLEEP!"s.

    It's a great show. Shame they've taken it off the air here in Oz. Hope they'll start airing it again soon.

    I'm surprised they took it off the air...maybe they are just waiting for the new season?

    we have just started season #4 here, so it will probably be back on down there.

    on top of everything, Alaskan Red King Crab is delicious...yummy

    Flashy - I really hope they do. They've also recently finished showing Lobster Wars here as well. It's now been replaced with Ice Road Truckers which I'm also addicted to. I've just ordered the first series on DVD from the US today. They're only part way thru the first series here in Oz.

    Yonkers.

    I am sure they will...I assume it is on some type of "Discovery Channel-Australia" affiliate, so it should be continuing. They probably wait for the season to finish here, and then broadcast there...maybe.

    how many seasons have they broadcast there so far?


    you know, they have a video game coming out as well.


    a different game though, is if you go to the Discovery Channel website, they have a "Deadliest Catch" game you can play for free...i was addicted to it for about 3 months :eek:

    you have to choose your crew, map your course, drop your pots, deal with all kinds of scenarios, like crewmen fighting, injuries, mechanical breakdown.

    you have to choose either a big ship, a fast ship, the kind of amenities etc... you have to soak the pots for just about the right time...you have to know how muc time it is going to take to get to your next string...it is maddening...i nearly went crazy, but it is alot of fun....i spent most of my time yelling at my imaginary crewmen that "the next we go out i'm leaving you at Dutch Harbor you fucking lazy asshole." LOL

    here is the link to it!
