I am so addicted to that show.
have you seen the special episode about the film crews. they had behind the scenes film of the camera guys getting swept off the deck by rogue waves, guys getting sea sick for days, and all the funky contraptions the camera guys came up with to try and protect there cameras. there was something like 150 brand new cameras brought onto the boats last season and not a single one was in properly working condition when the season was over. One camera guy stepped back on the deck and fell straight through the open hatch of the crab hold, it looked so painful it made me cringe. another guy had the crew tie him to the crane boom so he could hang off the side of the ship and get aerial action shots
. every guy on every one of those boats are out of there minds. I am so envious!
They tried to copy the show on the east coast with Lobster Wars, but its just not the same, there is only one Berring sea
One of the camera guys on Lobster Wars got so sea sick for so long that he became dehydrated and unconscious. when they were unable to wake him up they called the coast guard and had him air lifted back to main land. These documentaries are some sick stuff, Its the only reality TV I'll watch.
Man I can't wait.
