Why Is Deadliest Catch So Popular?

Strawberry Land Hermit Crab (Coenobita perlatus), Maldives, Indian Ocean by jogorman

Deadliest Catch starts up again tonight, and again I’ll be watching it. Karey & I realized a few years ago that the show really is essentially the same thing year after year. They go out, they fish for crabs, things break (both ships and people), good times, bad times, etc… It’s not like I think this year God himself will make a special guest appearence as the Relief Captain of the Cornelia Marie or that Time Bandit’s sauna will catch fire. But for some reason the show is addictive, which is why I’ll be watching it again.

Why not take the poll below and tell me why you think Deadliest Catch is so popular! (if you’re reading this on Facebook, head over to my website and vote!)
