Before complaining about the market price of Alaska king crab, check out this gripping documentary series, revealing the mortal perils and intense discomfort that fishing crews face on the Bering Sea to catch the delicacy.

The locations given for boats on the "radar" screen do not match what the narrator says. For example, one boat was said to be 225 miles Northwest of Dutch Harbor was marked further away than a boat said to be 290 miles Northwest of Dutch Harbor. Another time this occurred when it was said that one boat was a certain shorter distance away from a boat in a southerly direction appeared further away than another boat that was said to be further away, yet appeared closer on the map.

Deadliest Catch is a once in a lifetime opportunity for ''normal people'' to get a full insight into what these amazing men and women go through to catch these crab. You get everything narrated superbly by Mike Rowe. from wheelhouse confrontations,greenhorns/rookies vs captains mostly,to the hectic work on deck,with a lot of drama,both crew fights and typhoon weather fishing.Close up shot by camera crew out on deck in in all weather,intense close up the crew after working sometimes more then 45-50 hours with no sleep/rest.Inspiring to watch the will and determination of these amazing people. Amanzingly addictive show,one of the best show around.
