…So while we’ve been wringing our crabby little hands in anticipation of the new season and the excitement it will bring–Discovery elves have worked their little fingers to the bone behind the scene, building a brand new Discovery ‘Deadliest Catch’ site for us to enjoy! …And then at some point today–while we were all at work– someone at Discovery flipped the magic switch and turned it all on for us to see! We’ve got the beginning of a season 6 episode guide, introductions to the crews, boat shots, stats, new video clips–all plastered over a rusty steel/iron alloy background! It’s beautiful, but you’d have to go over to Discovery and see for yourself! In the meantime, check out descriptions of the first two, season 6 eppys and think of what we’ll witness in these first two shows–crew poaching, boat swapping, greenhorn issues (figures), possible mutiny, new boat/new crew, and YIKES, it just goes on and on…
