Advertisements A new series just started on Discovery called Lobstermen: Jeopardy at Sea. It has exactly the same feel as Deadliest Catch, although I didn't notice if it has the same producers. The funny thing is, it really seems to be a kinder, gentler version of the latter... The boats are smaller, the traps are smaller and lighter, and so far, the seas are considerably calmer. The "characters" crewing the boats seem pretty much the same as DC. I have a Season Pass for now, but I get the feeling that it won't hold up in comparison. Very minor spoiler: Spoiler The biggest controversy in the first episode involves squid trawlers dragging off the lobstermens' strings of pots, similar to the ice floes from the recent DC series.
