Deadliest obsession

Deadliest Catch

I am not embarrassed to say that I am hooked on the "Deadliest Catch." I was mindlessly flipping through channels when I stumbled upon this show. Maybe because it's so dangerous or the insane crew. Who knows, maybe I just like it. Since it made it to Wikipedia, I am clearly not alone....

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Deadliest Catch is a documentary-style television series that documents the events aboard six fishing boats in the Bering Sea during the Alaskan king crab and Opilio crab fishing seasons. The show is named "Deadliest Catch" because the crew of these boats are at a high risk of death or injury due to the conditions of the sea during the seasons they fish, earning the title of most dangerous job in the world. The show was created after the success of a three-part miniseries about Alaskan crab fishing called America's Deadliest Season (also created by Thom Beers). Deadliest Catch premiered on the Discovery Channel on April 12, 2005. The first season had ten episodes with the last airing on June 14, 2005. Season two was filmed one year later and began airing on March 28, 2006. Season three began airing April 3, 2007.
The opening theme for the TV airings is "Wanted Dead or Alive" by Bon Jovi, although this song is not used on the official DVD release of the first season. The spots for Season Three feature an updated and faster version of the hit STYX song "Come Sail Away" performed by the punk rock cover band Me First and the Gimme Gimmes.
In North America, the series is narrated by Mike Rowe, while Bill Petrie narrates the show in Europe.

BTW Sig's crew is my favorite.
