TV on DVD: Deadliest Catch

In dvd, television, tv on 04/06/2009 at 8:49 pm

Oh sure, you eat crab. Maybe even do hand to hand combat with the can opener to get at the crab. But do you know how hard the poor devils work to bring you the crab?
Of course, if you watch Deadliest Catch, I’m preaching to the converted. While the Discovery Channel series that follows a handful of fishermen into the building-high waves of the Bering Sea is always thrilling, Season 4 was particularly suspenseful. The daredevil captains were awed by one of their own, whose disregard for his health nearly killed him. None of the hype that characterizes some other so-called reality series. It would be easy to find out which of the crazed captains I’m talking about, but if you don’t know, don’t bother looking on the Net. Watch the season, out now on DVD (or repeating on Discovery). It’s gripping. Maybe even gripping enough to make up for the fact that you’re probably too late to register for CatchCon, a gathering of Deadliest fans in Seattle on April 25.

Definitely gripping enough to set the stage for Season 5, coming April 21 at 10 p.m. ET on Discovery Channel Canada.
