Deadliest Catch was nominated this season for four Emmy's. "Deadliest Catch" went up against "Myth Busters" for Outstanding Reality Program and won.
"Deadliest Catch" also captured the Emmy for Outstanding Cinematography, Outstanding Picture Editing and Outstanding sound mixing. This is great news for fans (and cast members and producers and editors and cameramen) who've been watching the show for a long time. The creative arts industry has affirmed and acknowledged the intelligent and inspiring television that most of its viewers have seen as the show developed into a more intense interpersonal drama from a random story of water cowboys searching for bounty and a big payday.

I wonder if commercial crabbing will be allowed near/in Antarctica?
only if they promise to vote Dem and donate to Greenpeace to save the polar bears.
Love the show as well as Flying Wild Alaska.
In six days, I will be in Ketchikan, where the Deadliest Catch tour boat in berthed. If the fishing report is good that is what I am doing, I have taken the tour, it is great.
That whole series kinda fell apart when Phil Harris died. I don’t know if it’s still running or not, but if it is, I don’t think it’s with the same cast of characters.
That plus the Alaska Gold Mining show were good.
Are either coming back?
Flying Wild Alaska returns with new season on November 4.
I still watch but it’s not the same without Captain Phil
Phil was a man’s man. I was heartbroken when he died. He would have been a great guy to hang out at the local bar with.
If anything ever happens to Sig, I might quit watching ;)
So the king crab migrated through thousands of miles of warm, even tropical, waters to get to Antarctica?
All of Discovery reality type shows follow the same basic forumula which gets kind of tiresome at times, but if I could only get one channel it would probably be Discovery channel.
I especially like Mythbusters/Deadliest Catch/Alaska Pilots (whatever that’s called)
That’s just sloppy headlining. The antarctic king crab population is growing, possibly due to migration from other regions nearby, but no Alaskan kings aren’t making the hike down to the antarctic.
Me too. The wife & I were lucky enough to spend some time in Alaska in 2007. The land is magnificent, but some of the people are a little "off". Some of them like to shoot the heck out of any road sign and beat the snot out of and burn abandoned (I hope) vehicles. Cabin fever, I suppose...
Snip: Captains Johnathan and Andy Hillstrand and Capt. Sig Hansen have agreed to return to "Deadliest Catch," the Discovery Channel series about crab fishing in Alaska. The Hillstrands and Hansen had announced earlier that the Hillstrands' boat, the F/V Time Bandit, and Hansen's boat, the F/V Northwestern, would not participate in "Deadliest Catch" this crab season. In a statement released Friday by the Discovery Channel, the captains announced they will join the show for filming. The Time Bandit is homeported in Homer.
I can watch DC for hours. I was a deck ape on a destroyer that was assigned arctic patrols. We did a lot of sloshing around on deck like they do, except our gear was crappy and we were nutty from hypothermia.
Who you callin’ crabby???
I love that show...
