Over the last few years many writers have posted on their blogs that they just dont know what it is about ‘Deadliest Catch’ that’s got them hooked, but they can’t turn away from the show when it’s on tv. And when one thinks about it, there’s so many different elements to the show that it’s hard to tell whether it’s one specific thing or the combination of it all. It could be the almost exotic setting of Alaska, could be the featured fishermen with their edgy personalities and larger then life presences, could be the Bering sea, the crab itself, the lifestyle, or the actual fishing too. Whichever stands out in your mind, you have to admit that the imagery we see on the television every week is fascinating and sometimes haunting as well! What is it that catches your eye when watching ‘Deadliest Catch’?
