    Yeah. That's about right. Nobody really gives a fuck.

    Josh is still working as a deckhand on the Time Bandit. Jake is back in rehab. Big shock.

    This thread title is going to look ridiculous, and a thread in it's position can not afford to look ridiculous...

    Loved the show, and the aftershow about the old man who helped build the Time Bandit.

    They decided they wanted a crab boat so they went out and built one. Fantastic!

    The Time Bandit remodel/rebuild seemed like a typical, pain-in-the-ass, driveway mechanic job. Only, this one involved a 113 foot crab vessel and it cost something like a million bucks.

    Holy shit, Old Man Hillstrand was a first order prick of a fellow.

    If you enjoy Deadliest Catch, seek out the Time Bandit special.

    The sons bought the Cornelia Marie this year. May not see it in this season but I can assure you they did

    I thought it was pretty good. Wild Bill seems like he would be a prick to work for. If I was going to join a boat I still think it would have to be either the Time Bandit or the Northwestern.

    Freddie Maugatai is a total soldier. Any boss in any industry would be the luckiest guy in the world to have one of his type as a subordinate.

    Don't care. Without Phil, the show is pointless.

    Can always start in, there are some pretty good rips online. The show is pretty interesting considering it's basically just dump pot, retrieve pot, sort, repeat. The drama is pretty good for that contrived feeling reality style drama. Mostly the interest comes from the captains and crew being such wackjobs.

    The last few seasons have gone the same way. I'm mildly interested for the first 3 or 4 episodes then I'm bored and quit the run. But when it comes back I kind of missed it a little and check it out again. So, not a total trainwreck.

    I'm noticing a few differences probably for the better. For example there's been zero focus on the ollllld 'how much the bait job hurts greenhorn fingers' schtick. A few other cliches are absent that I can't remember right now. And they seem to be explaining the technicalities a little more, like about where they set the strings in relation to one another.

    There are cues that seem to be setting Elliot up for a massive crash and burn. That could be fun.

    Junior is a cocksucker.

    People that pull that shit piss me off more than anything else. I know it's fun to hate on Keith but he was trying to do something mutually beneficial and Junior just shit on his face.

    Okay... I think we're in season 438 now. I've mostly bailed on the series... and I can't even imagine how anybody could still be holding on. I mean... they catch crab... we get it.

    But I caught last night's episode for shits and giggles.

    #1- the Rambling Rose skipper guy may just be the biggest bitch ass bitch on the planet. Ugh... they sent the whiney junkie to rehab and he was a complete whiney cunt about it... typical junkie.

    #2- that show is like the greatest anti-smoking campaign EVER. Every single one of them smokes like a freight train, and they all sound like they're five minutes from coughing up a char-broiled lung and dropping dead. It's actually painful to watch... and I catch myself taking deep sympathy breaths... like I'm trying to breath for them.

    They all watched that Phil guy smoke himself into an early grave, and yet every one of them keeps right on puffing away. One of the two brothers on that Pirate boat... Time Bandit or wahatever... he couldn't even put to sea on the boat because his cigarette-ravaged body had a resting BP of like 170 over 100. Yikes!

    Those men need to be introduced to vaping in the worst way.

    Nobody knows what is in that chemical cocktail. Don't puff it on the others in the crab boat. Maaaaaaaaaaaaannnnnnnnnnnnn.

    I hope elliot dies, i fucking hate that lisping queeb. Oh and his big stint in rehab, if you pause when he flashes his completion certificate you can see that he spent a whole 33 documented hours in rehab. Congratulations dipshit, you were clean for a day and a half, I'm sure your now cured.

    Elliot... that's the fuckstick's name. Ugh... I so badly want to slap that stupid hat and those asinine phillyfranko sunglasses off his ridiculous head.


    We all do.

    I gotta be honest: Josh getting the Cornelia Marie back and the Hansen chick are the only things even vaguely interesting about this show now.

    I don't know why I still pay attention to this show. Nothing new has happened in so very long and yet I'll be tuning in again all the same. Something's wrong with me.

    me either, it takes me about 20 minutes to watch an episode, anything with Wild Bill or Junior is unwatchable, I watch for the Northwestern and the trainwreck that is Elliot.
