    Deadliest Catch is becoming the Hamburger Helper of tv. Take a popular ingredient and then stretch it into as many different combinations as possible. We now have After The Catch after every episode. We had Revelations. Now we have Behind the Scenes. I've enjoyed all of them but eventually they're going to burn us out. The classic show biz line is "leave em wanting more" and DC is very close to violating that one.

    Lol, you're right. Next episode, the home life of the cameraman.

    They've done the behind the scenes show for a number of seasons. I find it more fascinating than the regular episodes.

    I thought it was excellent timing to have caught that guy's finger getting chopped off. They hype this show as the deadliest job on the planet, but after 8 years we've seen some boo-boos, headaches and dehydration. Up to this recent event, band aids and excedrin pretty much covered everything. No doubt it's a terrifically difficult job in terrible conditions, which is compelling, but there has been a lack of drama in regard to risking life and limb. I think that's a good thing, apparently the quota system has made the seasons much safer and even more profitable, which wasn't in place when the show started.
