i don’t know why i love this show so much. it’s about a bunch of alaskan crab fishermen and fishing for crab on the bering sea. it seems like it wouldn’t be that exciting, but week after week, season after season i keep tuning in. it’s a great show.
i think part of the drama is just seeing the greenhorns adjust, the struggles that the captains have managing their boats, and the great unknown of the sea. will there be crab? what will it be like? it’s interesting just to see what kind of life these men go through to make a living.
