Editorial Reviews

Join Captain Rick Mezich and the crew of The Fierce Allegiance as they work the frigid waters between Russia and Alaska during the brutal '99 snow crab season, a season that took the lives of seven good men. Crab fishing in the middle of winter off the coast of Alaska is extremely dangerous. On average, one man will die every week, sent to a watery grave by rogue waves and sinking ships. Why do they do it? Perhaps because crab fishing is thought to be one of the last great gold rushes in the world. In a good year, an experienced deck hand working the short, eight-week season can bring home almost $50,000. But this isn't easy money. Crushed fingers, crippled hands, cracked ribs and broken feet are common in this working environment where the injury rate stands at almost one hundred percent. Now the hair-raising reality adventure comes to DVD in this thrilling 5-DVD set containing all 10 episodes.

As someone who worked in the Alaska commerical fisheries for years, and on crab boats in the Bering Sea out of Dutch Harbor during the early 90s, I really appreciate this series which has given this worthy, but dangerous, occupation the notoriety it deserves. This was the hardest, most dangerous work I ever did, inclusive of my period of military service, in which several of my friends lost their lives; it is an occupation that all who have participated in can have great pride in. One point needs to be made, however, which is that conditions are a little safer than they were before with the advent of the quota system which lets boats choose their weather some (although I think the TV producers may be goading fishers to push the limit more than they otherwise would). Previously it was a free for fall that started on January 15th. A good book to read in conjunction with viewing this series is Spike Walker's "Working on the Edge."

This is a must see DVD set, especially for thos that are considering going to work in Alaska on a commercial fishing vessel. I worked on such vessels for almost 3 years in Alaska, and yes it is truly like how this movie shows it is. Glad to see that TDC was able to get this live and on DVD. Not for the fainthearted.

Deadliest Catch - Season 1 (5 Disc Set)

The dvd set has 7 hours running time. The content is excellent. The quality of picture (4:3) is average. There are no extras. I bought it for $16 after price drop. Hopefully, I will see new seasons for similar prices. If you are newbee like me about crab fishing world in Alaska, this is an excellent ride to get as close as real experience. The dvd set is oversized, I wish they make it 3-dvd slim pack that could save storage space for us.

Format: DVD
I laugh at all these shows called reality tv, especially the ones like fear factor or even Man vs. Wild. Safety and backup plans abound with them, and they are subject to extreme editing. Most of the people on those shows seem pretty fake anyways, extremely plastic style drones with no substance that create petty drama for the camera.

With this series, it is all in your face and very, very real. People die out here, and people get injured often. Simply a great film in a documentary style that shows Crab Fishing on Alaska's high seas in all its guts and glory. Get real, and then get this because the plastic drones you root for on fear factor are nothing more than pre-fab drama queens that would not even begin to know what it takes to work on one of these boats. A long tradition of fishing the high seas is seen here in the present day, with a good coverage of all the captains, their boats and crews and their will to survive while still finding some fun in their adventurous jobs.

The show that Discovery Channel has produced is one of the most "can't miss" shows ever, in my opinion. The drama that has unfolded shows that all reality tv is not rich kids in California, or people "surviving" on some island.

Discovery has mad a winner, no doubt. I'm already waiting for the 3rd season to start. It seems it's April debut cannot get here soon enough!

this has quickly become one of my favorite shows
the amazing shots will not leave you unsatisfied but they will leave you wanting more the camera men push the envelop to get great shots of anything they can
being narrated by mike rowe adds to the effect
watch it and you wont be unsatisfied

This first season of DC caught my attention, with nothing like it on TV. It's informative and full of suspense. I highly recommend Seasons 2 & 3 for 4 & 5 star ratings - the cast (crab fishermen) are more used to cameras around & show more of their personalities and insight to the strategies, pranks and sailing superstitions.

DEADLIEST CATCH is one of the most riveting series on TV.

The work alone is incrediblly dangerous and difficult on heaving decks in freezing seas with wind and weather assailing every footstep. The evidence of this lies in the 90 lost souls over the past twenty years of those who ventured to challenge Alaska's Bering Sea.

But the real drama of the series lies in the characters themselves; the Wizard's captain Keith, Jonathan of Time Bandit, the damaged Phil aboard Cornelia Marie (and his sons), Sig and his family on the Northwestern and so many other brave and hearty souls. They become like part of the family as we cheer their victories, grieve their losses and laugh with them in the joy of their work and play. You come to love Jacob, the great-hearted kid on the Cornelia Marie and to see through Jonathan's quirkiness to his heart for his men and his ship. Sig's toughness metls as he reveals the depth of his pain in losing friends and comrades to the Bering Sea.

This series is a brilliant, vivid, dramatic testimony to the "men who go down to the sea in ships." May God bless and keep them.
