    DEADLIEST CATCH: Thom Beers answers questions

    deadliest-catch-thom-beersImage Credit: Discovery Channel

    Thom Beers, executive producer of ‘Deadliest Catch’ was recently interviewed by Entertainment Weekly and he seems to answer some of the questions that have come up lately.  Given how emotionally heavy the entire season was, the finale seemed to have a slightly ‘lighter’ feel and below, Beers confirms that the finale episode was ‘back to fishing’ as usual–it was a nice finish for a show that really never ends but continues from season to season.  I’ve listed a few of the questions & answers from the interview but you should make the jump to read the whole article…

    What were you trying to accomplish with the season six finale?
    THOM BEERS: We’re back to fishing. We had a traumatic loss this season with Capt. Phil, but I think the lesson in the last episode is that we all go on. We carry that loss with us, but we still have to go back to work. We’re swinging the focus to the other subjects in the series. Edgar’s body is wearing out and he has no place to go, but Sig is not going to give up the helm of the ship to him. The other Jake … his father is still missing.  And now the question will be, what will happen with Phil’s sons? Where will that go? There are some interesting cliffhangers.

    What was the most emotional moment for you?
    [Beers pauses.] Uh, I’m having one right now. [He pauses, and his voice quivers.] That moment Phil said ‘I’m sorry I wasn’t a great dad.’ That, to me, it just ripped my guts out. I saw it 19 times during edits and that was the toughest episode I ever did. It took me three different days to look through it. I couldn’t watch.

    Do you feel you have to lighten up the show for its seventh season?
    You make shows out of what you are given, I don’t know what’s going to happen. The first show of this year, a boat was sinking. Every year a boat goes down, every year five or six guys die. That’s the reality. This wasn’t the only heavy year. Every year is heavy. I sweat it every year, thinking I’m going to get a call hearing that my crew has gone down with a boat. It’s a nightmare.
