I haven't seen the show, but hope to acquire the DVD set when they're available. Twenty years ago, I worked on the trawl fleet plying the same treacherous seas as those crabbers. In fact, we routinely dragged up those pots, which tore the shit out of our nets. We cursed them all--they're sick fuckers, one and all. It's a crazy last-frontier sort of lifestyle out in the Aleutians. Crabbers were viewed as a kind of violent irrational quasi-humanoid (Klingon-like) species, which was to be avoided when encountered in the Dutch Harbor bars. Any creature that can routinely go 72 hours straight, without sleep is not to be trusted.
