season finale this tuesday!!!
I hate it, it seems just when it gets going it's over for a year
over for a whole year? NOOOO, what am i going to do then? *meh*
do the storms get worse every year or do they just make them look worse for the dratamic effect? in every season finale there is somebody saying that that's the worse storm he's ever seen.
I finally got to catchup yesterday, Discovery ran a marathon.
I had to laugh over Sig
Jake has got to be the best greenhorn this show has had hands down!! When he came onto the Northwestern he was so focused and knew what he wanted. He had a goal and knew it was going to kick his butt day in and day out to get it but he refused to give up. Even when he was worn down to a nub and he hated all of them he still worked his butt off.
The show really had to look for stuff on Jake to show him as *whiney*
Overall though I think not only is it a testament to Jake that he is now such a strong man on that ship but also to Edgar and Sig. They may have pushed and expected him to do the job, but I don't recall ever seeing Jake treated with as much disdain or just plain basic disrespect by any of the Northwestern crew like I see other greenhorns treated on other boats.
Jonathon and his tantrums
Russell and the Sauna
Banged up crew
WOW I was shocked at just how beat up they all were still. I didn't realize that the one guy had a crushed cheekbone. Talk about committed to one's job and paying your bills.
The engine, pots on top of pots and friends
It sounded like this was one of the biggest storms in years that any of them had faced. The comment was made that even to them the storms seem to be getting colder, bigger and badder. So I hope this finale doesn't end the way the year started with a boat not only in trouble but losing men
All in All it was a great afternoon and evening catching up on the Gang ...and of course Josh is still the hottest guy on a crab boat

I have to say the longer I watch the show the more you do feel like you are getting to know all of them a bit more. At first it seems like they are shown as *Tough Guys of the Seas* but as each season has gone on each boat has gotten more defined and then each person as well.
I doubt HIGHLY we will ever really know any of them all that well but when things are extreme, it does seem like the *Real person* comes out over time. So the gist of the person's character does come up.
I think too that due to editing we will never see the really gads awful just because the Capt will tell them to get off his boat next time. So I do think they have to be a little bit careful.
as to the producer
you know, getting stuff is his job. he tells the camera folks 'find out from phil how he feels' 'what did keith mean when he said that' etc
i'm not saying that it's not predatory or cold hearted - and there's a 'behind the scenes' thing monday night that will probably go into this more - but the 'drama' is the job.
and one of hte camera guys job is to interview the captains, ask them questions, ask the crew questions, why did you do this, why did you do that, why did htat happpen, etc.
and they talked about the times that the camera guy put down his camera...like when phil almost died, it was the camera man that set his camera down to take care of phil. or when keith's crew got hurt, he set down his camera because he was EMT trained and these guys needed to be assessed to know if they could stand to wait until Keith got them into port or if they needed to call the coast guard for a rescue.
it's a mixed bag of good and evil.
I am glad that the guys who are actually there have the sense AND the autonomy to make those calls.
I think if the show was based only on getting the *drama moment* and tried to put everylittle bit out in the public eye I wouldn't like as much as I do. So that credit does need to go to the Camera guys and the show producers.
But too many of these *reality shows* are just Jerry Springer in real life and that isn't something I would want to watch. So I am glad that these guys seem to have a sense of what would be crossing the line
LOLOL... well...now if that means I would get to see Josh without a shirt more often...
I'm gone for a day and you start a discussion
seems to me the guys are different during fishing than being on land and living their normal lives
I didn't know thes camera guys took care of hurt fishermen. I really like that because on one point one - as a camera/documentation guy -has to decide between noninvolved observers or saving lives. i see them as crew members as well because they are on board of these vessels as long as the fishing crew.
they said that there are times when you set down the camera and help.
keith was talking about how the camera guy helped him with his injured crew (and there are 2 camera guys on each boat)
I do think, in the heat of the moment, when they're tired adn stressed and frustrated that they do and say things that they normally wouldn't do. then, when hindsight kicks in, you see how silly your tantrum was (or they see the tape)
*reads so many spoilers* HOW MUCH HAVE I MISSED? bluddy hubby and bluddy sky.
not you sky! dont land on me!
i can only get the free channels until we can afford sky again. i miss the discovery channel.
So the finale is tonight now if I can just stay awake
with having to start working at 5 & 5:30am last week and this week to accommodate meetings with the East Coast I can barely make it past 8 each night.......
Hopefully all ships will be ok through the storm
Geez, this was a final
So Tame, did you make it? Starting work at 5 - wow, when do you have to get up then? that's hard, i always need at least 7 hours of sleep
i never got the idea that it'd be the last season ever. the show is a ratings bonanza
I do think, as much as i love the guys, they need to branch out a bit. I love Sig and Keith and Jon and Andy and Phil...but there are about 80 more boats, how about rotating through some of those
did you see the behind the scenes one?
it's not just the crabbers that are risking their lives.
I do wonder, however, what will happen should any of the focus boats run into trouble. especially if there are fatalities.
i never really though of this show ending too, but these two episodes made me feel like they were finishing something.
true, watching the early season there were a lot more boats in it. this season they had the Incentive but i wish they would show more. maybe one reason for this is because these captains are really famous now and kind of monopolizing it.
i don't really want to think about one of these boats getting in trouble. i know htat the captain of the Big Valey once had a tram on board, but i wonder if they had a filmcrew on board when they sank. it's quite sad because the captain (Gary?) explained the function of one life suite before they left the harbor.
edit: no, haven't seen Behind the scenes yet. but i'm on it to catch this one up.Spoiler:
No I didn't I was so out like a light on our loveseat within 30 minutes of putting the Peanut to bed (which means 7:30pm) ..LOL I feel so old I too am one that likes to get at least 6-8 hours of sleep or I end up with headaches and then migraines.Originally Posted by Fainne
I work from home so I can get up at 4:30am, stumble to the coffee pot and then stumble into my office I can sit in the meetings in my bathrobe
So I haven't read any of your spoilers yet cause I am going to try to see if I can't see the episode this weekend. They do DC marathons alot here so I am crossing my fingers.
You guys just got the feeling something was ending but there has not been any official anything??
awww, well i'm sure you can catch it up. being housewife, mother (I assume that from your "Peanut"), wife and working is really exhausting, so it's your right to fall asleep at 7.30
atl east you don't have a long way to work which saves you some time haha, meetings in bathrobes. imagine that in a real office xD
i'm watching a rerun of DC in german TV and just noticed they have scenes in the episodes for Europe they don't show in US It's the episode where Jake Anderson starts his job at the Northwestern, and they've shown how sig explains him how to do the watch while the crew is sleeping. and i just don't remember having seen it in the US version but one reason more to watch the german reruns
