The fans of “The Deadliest Catch” have watched as the crews take to the waters for the first days of the season. While the season premiere gave the viewers a taste of the tasks on the ships, it appears some men aren't ready to take on the job, but find out too late as they can't keep up a pace. This “Deadliest Catch” spoiler offers details about the popular Discovery Channel show for the episodes “Family Affair.” According to the Anchorage Daily News on Thursday, the show is a phenomenon with fans watching the crew do their jobs for nearly 10 years.
The “Deadliest Catch” viewers will get a double dose of the popular reality show and it’s going to be interesting. In “Family Affair” the show is two weeks into the King Crab season and the fleet is already behind due to the government shutdown. According to Captain Johnathan Hillstrand who talked to Entertainment Weekly, the government shutdown cost the industry over $15 million with the delays to the industry. This also made the season tough for everyone looking to make a living crabbing.
What could be worse than a government shutdown? A massive Arctic storm! The weather strikes and leaves the crew dealing with almost more than they can handle. Meanwhile, a harrowing Coast Guard airlift must abort as 100-knot winds whip over the fishing grounds.
“Deadliest Catch” fans have a spin-off preview show with the captains offered as well. "The Bait" goes over highlights for the upcoming season and discussing how the crew handles situations. This week the crab captains offer up analysis on their own pregame show to settle who's in, who's out, and who's on injured reserve. It’s set to be an interesting debate for the historic tenth season of "Deadliest Catch."
The “Deadliest Catch” airs Tuesday night at 9 p.m. ET on Discovery. “The Bait” airs one hour prior to the popular reality television show.
