Deadliest Catch - Season 8

No one talking about the new season of Deadliest Catch yet? Am I the only one that watches this?

I thought Season 8 Episode 1 "The Gamble" was pretty typical of the first episode of any season. Not much excitement, but a lot of anticipation build-up for what will happen in future episodes. Lots of pretty scenery shots.

Sad about the Cornelia Marie not going out.

Agreed, but happy that Jake and Josh found homes on the existing boats. Good fit for each, and now Josh won't be stifled by his brother's shenanigans.

I watched it, but not much to say yet.

I thought they would follow up on the deckhand that seemed drunk or worse, but they never went back to him.

Uh, wasn't he the one that almost got killed by the swining crab pot?

They only had enough $$$ to fix the boat, not to send it out for crab. Remember all of that money is paid out first by the boat owners before a single crab is caught.

Anyone else notice the Map style this year was reminiscent of the Game of Thrones intro.
Esp the compass style.

The quota being cut in half did it as well. Plus the quota Phil had doesn't pass on to the boys, they'd have to lease their own. I'm sure whomever advises the boys on finances figured out there was no way to profit on King Crab season and a large chance of going further in the hole.

I liked the new map graphics (no Lexus logo!).

Man, Keith gets the last red crab pot on board and then decides to take them all off and load the blue crab pots instead. Ouch.

Good to see Edgar back as well.

I'm glad they split the Harriss brothers up. I think that will be good for them.

Now it makes sense why there haven't been any "deals" on king crab legs at my grocery store this season.

If the quotas were cut in half then supply has to be very low.

In years past I've seen it around $9-10lb but it's up at $18plus

I know they had to put money into the boat for needed repairs during the summer. Did they say on the show that Harris boys+Cornelia didn't have money for fuel/supplies?

I'm thinking we'll find out the answer to this in a few weeks.

Season 8, Ep 2 - "Turf War"

Not much excitement. Already thought of Elliot as kind of a jerk, but his decision to lay pots on top of Scott's strings really proved that. My wife even said "I never liked that guy but couldn't really say why. Now I can."

Hoping for more excitement next week.

One of Seabrooke's crewmen was yelling they should cut the Rambling Rose buoys. I have a feeling that this sort of thing does happen when cameras aren't around.

Edgar has been begging for a chance to be in the chair for at least 3 seasons now, but big bro is having none of it. His argument about the physical toll is completely valid IMO.

So now we have a boat known to the show just sitting. Why not get Edgar in the chair of the Cornelia? Put both Harris boys back on if necessary. I know, I know.....it takes money. If Discovery wanted to, that wouldnt be an issue for at least one season. Just dont offer Edgar a salary from the show that season......the opportunity is his paymant. Get that done and you have a whole new brother vs. brother dynamic that you can edit however you want.

And yeah Elliot is a turd. Very uncool and I hope he pays for it.

They have shown pots being lost in the ice and also being dragged out and the "balloons" going under water and losing the pot. That was a few seasons ago though.

And the line "will make half of what they made last year" is not correct. Their quota may be cut in half but with short supply should come much higher prices than normal. So while they are catching less, the price per pound should be more as well making up some of that loss.

And how about the line..."There might not even be a quote for the next couple of years". Discovery has to be sh*tting their pants! lol

Yeah, I thought that too, but I'm pretty sure that was only regarding red crab. They would probably still have blue crab, and opies later in the season.

I also like Legion's idea about putting edgar on the CM. That would be a cool thing to see.

I like Legion's idea but I don't think you could just drop Edgar in there and make him captian. For one, I doubt he has the necessary licenses and he certainly doesn't have the experience required to captian by himself...

The Hansen bros should do what the Hillstrand bros do with both in the wheelhouse but one captains for each season.
