Review: Discovery is famous for their fantastic reality television.  They shy away from absurd dating shows and get deep into various professions around the world.  Deadliest Catch is a show that follows the extreme lifestyle of sea fishermen.

Here is my issue.  I love animals..yes, even fish.   I'm a vegetarian.  I'm not an activist and I don't push my lifestyle choices on others, but watching guys fish isn't exactly my idea of a thrilling show.  Firstly, its pretty disgusting.  Have you ever smelled a fisherman?  Not good. We're talking about an extreme fishing show here.  I mean say that out loud.  I gave it a fair shake, though and it just didn't do anything for me.

I will give it to them..the show is well-produced and has great narration.  There is no problem there, its just the content thats not only somewhat disturbing, but rather dull.

Rating: 3 out of 5 Stars
