Anybody else here a fan of the show Deadliest Catch? I am absolutely obsessed with it - i have followed the show all four seasons and find myself watching rerun after rerun despite having seen each episode multiple times already. This season has been alright so far, but this last episode really left the viewer hanging.

So, any thoughts?

Did one the guys nearly die in one of the more recent episodes?

Whatever happened with Phil?

Yeah, and awhile back I think like 5-7 of them died in a single episode >_>

yea, in the most recent episode Phil started coughing up blood and was thinking he had punctured a lung when he broke his ribs. But it got bad enough (serious trouble breathing, lots of blood), that they in fact took him in to an emergency clinic on st paul island. turns out it wasnt due to any broken ribs. instead, the doctor just saw some white stuff (for lack of a better word) in his lungs...

the episode pretty much ended with phil and the doctor talking about the possibility of cancer. ****.

My dad used to do that. Once a wave went over the boat sending a shark onto the deck and his friend put it up to his face while he was sleeping. My dad was pissed lol.

i can't get into that show it feels like the same thing happens in each episode

the most "dramatic" thing i ever saw was that they had too many crabs and had to throw some overboard an everyone was crying like "oh no i can only buy two ferraris now! boohoo!"
#10
i just watch the newest episode.

they definitely let you hanging with what happens to Phil.

i already read an article about it though, so i know whats going on. i wont ruin it for anyone, but if you want to know more, you can probably find it.

The reason theymake so much money is because they do this a month outta the year and live on what they make that month.

haha okay, so granted, most episodes are indeed the same thing over and over again - set gear, pull gear, sort crabs, repeat. but for some reason, for FOUR YEARS it has absolutely captivated me.

however, there are a lot of dramatic moments - for example, last year when the time bandit somehow managed to pull another man from a different boat out of the bering sea during stormy seas. or other boats sinking. or the featured boats getting slammed by rogue waves. or captains nearly dying. or serious injuries. etc etc etc

so yes, while there is a lot of repetition, but there are a lot of intense moments as well.

You do realize that if things go bad and they don't make what they need to, they're all pretty much fucked, right?

If by "****ed" you mean dead and probably in debt, then yes.
#15
boring..... i used to watch a couple of times..... then it just got so dull, its like.... work or somin, damn
#16
i dont get it haha. it seems like people either LOVE it or just find it really boring and not entertaining. i dont think i have ever even remotely found it to be dull or monotonous
#17
I freakin' LOVE Deadliest Catch.

Phil was my favorite captain, now that he's all sick he doesn't do much so I think Sig is my new favorite.

I love Edgar's smart ass comments he makes all the time.
#18
my favorite captain is jonathan hillstrand. i love listening to him laugh like a madman. sig is a badass too (as is the rest of the crew of the northwestern), but the time bandit is where its at
#20
It depends. Sometimes I do other times I don't. But the Time Bandit is ny favorite ship. Great crew.

Sig kicks ass.

After watching the show as much as I do, I would love to go out for 1 season and catch crab. As dangerous as it is, I think it would be fun to do at least once.
#23
pretty sweet series. Phil might lose his boat
The best thing about life is knowing you put it together
#24
i wonder how insurance/liabilities for the boats work. for example, i wonder just how bad someones health has to be for him not to be listed as the boats captain. i mean, i know that the crew all have to be in great physical shape (as it is such an incredibly demanding job), but im curious as to how that works with the captain. i cant imagine that the boats owner would want someone at such a serious risk for a heart attack (phil) or other serious ailment.

im dying to see tuesdays episode to figure out what happens!!!
#26
The show is okay, but once I start watching I can't stop... and they always play like 3 episodes in a row.
I've decided that my signature is terrible. I'm open to suggestions.

#28
anyone watch the new episode last night?!

turned out phils problem was a rogue blood clot (for lack of better words).

and they finally revealed the greatest thing about the time bandit - the sauna!!! i had read that when the hillstrands built this boat (actually the second time bandit), they personally designed each aspect of it and included a sauna. i have been waiting and waiting to see if they reveal it to the viewers

EDIT:

anyone see the episode where he had to put a hot needle through his finger nail. you could hear it all ozzing and sqishy, it was gross for my family but i luled
#30
The only channels I really watch on T.V. are TLC, Discovery, National Geographic, Discovery Times, and the Military channel (along with FOX or Comedy Central every once in a while). So yes I do like watching it when its on. But lately it seems like nothing really new has been happening, at least not in any episodes I randomly watch.

I really don't watch the show that much, but it just seems like the reruns are all that is on Discovery now.

Capt. Phil Harris of the Discovery Channel show "The Deadliest Catch" died Tuesday of complications from a stroke suffered late last month. He was 53.

Harris, the tattooed and gruff captain of the Cornelia Marie, was a fan favorite in the reality show about crab fishing off Alaska.

"Discovery mourns the loss of dear friend and colleague Captain Phil Harris. He was more than someone on our television screen. Phil was a devoted father and loyal friend to all who knew him," a statement from the network said. "We will miss his straightforward honesty, wicked sense of humor and enormous heart."

Harris suffered a massive stroke on January 29 while his crew offloaded crab at St. Paul Island, Alaska.

"It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to our dad -- Captain Phil Harris," said a statement from his sons, Jake and Josh Harris. "Dad has always been a fighter and continued to be until the end."

I heard about that. Sad. He seemed at risk for something like that though. Didn't he have a health scare on one of the episodes?


Still, really sad. He was one of the more interesting guys on the show.

Yeah, I remember that episode. I think that ended up being a coronary embolism.

That might have been it. I know it was something fairly serious though. So I guess this isn't a total shock.


Doing a job like that for years would be enough to kill most people. It seems incredibly stressful.
#36
This is pretty big to us here in Washington, quite a few people have seen him around here in the offseason, and I'm sure he's a great guy. Really sad to see him go, I have quite a bit of respect for him by watching the show, and he was one of my favorite captains.

I think it was a pulmonary embolism.

I think a coronary embolism effects the heart.

His problem was he threw a clot in his lungs.


The second post of this thread is a little haunting.
