I am a big fan of "Deadliest Catch" (a show on Discovery Channel that follows the journey of several Crab Fishing Boat Crews into the Bering Sea during crabbing season) Filming crews join each of the ships as they take on the deadly weather, dangerous equipment and rough seas. It's a fascinating look into a world that I had known nothing about until stumbling upon an episode while surfing the channels late one night.
There's something about watching these guys doing their jobs, day in and day out without faltering. They withstand the most dreaded weather conditions imaginable. I could not imagine having one of my family members out on one of those fishing rigs. I think I would be a complete wreck! This is one of the most dangerous jobs in the world. They get paid per pound of crab they catch. If they have a bad season, they have a bad paycheck. If they have a good season, their life-risking efforts are greatly rewarded. I'm addicted. It's an amazing show of comradarie, endurance and just pure HARD WORK!
