‘Deadliest Catch’–Episode 12:  A SLAP IN THE FACE OR A KICK IN THE BUTT!

Late into the season, each skipper faces his own personal brand of hell. Frozen crab, frozen gear, and a frozen harbor chill the hearts of even the most callous fishermen. On the Cornelia Marie, Skipper Phil gambles on the theory that air bubbles on the water means crabs are farting down below. On the Time Bandit, Captain Andy enters St. Paul harbor—now frozen enough to walk across. Five pack-a-day smoker Sig Hansen tries his hand at quitting the habit. When a huge storm kicks up he takes his stress out on his crew. Aboard the Wizard, Captain Keith demands an answer from his greenhorn: “Are you in or out?” It’s a season where very crab has been paid for in headaches—but the rising seas and oncoming ice-pack could make things worse.

‘After the Catch’–Episode 3:  FROZEN CRAB

A crab fisherman’s worst enemy? Ice. Ben Bailey shares a frosty mug with Phil, Sig, Keith Johnathan and Andy, as they compare some of the most difficult hurdles they face at sea.

    DID EVERYONE SEE AFTER THE CATCH LAST NIGHT WHEN THEY FEATURED THE OTHER LANGUAGES THAT THE SHOW IS DONE IN IN OTHER COUNTRIES? IT WAS EXCESSIVLY FUNNY WHEN THEY SHOWED THE CAPTAINS AND DECKHANDS YELLING AND ARGUING IN FOREIGN LANGUAGES. ESPECIALLY WHEN THE VOIV=CE CLEARLY DID NOT MATCH THE CHARACTER. WE WERE ROLLING ON THE FLOOR LAUGHING SO HARD. JUST WHAT WE NEEDED AFTER A DAYS HARD WORK.

    IF YOU GO TO NORTHWESTERNTV.COM YOU CAN VIEW THE 1 HOUR SPECIAL DONE IN THE SEATTLE AREA ON SIG AND HIS FAMILY AND THE NORTHWESTERN. THIS SPECIAL WAS ONLY SHOWN IN THE WA AREA BUT IS NOW AVAIL ON NORTHWESTERNTV.COM FOR ALL TO SEE. I WATCHED IT A COUPLE WEEKS AGO AND PLAN TO WATCH AGAIN SOON . IT WENT INTO SIGS CHILDHOOD MEMORIES AND HIS CURRENT FAMILY LIFE THE BOAT AND ALL THAT STUFF. IT WAS REALLY GOOD AND I THINK THEY SHOULD SHOW IT ON DISC.

    OH, SORRY THE TITLE OF THE 1 HR SPECIAL IS CALLED “LUCKIEST CATCH”.
