As good as the first season

"Different though. There's less talk by Mike Rowe, but his voice is just perfect for this kind of thing. The end of the season episode, with the meeting with family members, is just the perfect end to a glorious show. I can feel completely identified with the human species watching it: priceless.
It gives less importance to the competitive side this time. There are no provisional "scores" but that doesn't play as a minus. Maybe there are not so many flashbacks either. There are moments without commentary, where one finds himself "embedded" on the seas watching just like one more man in the crew, silently living it from the couch.
Even if you don't care about the sea, watch it for its human worth. It's like an oasis away from politics and trivial city stuff."

"Deadliest Catch is one of those shows that rapidly becomes compulsive viewing. The way the show is done is anything but repetitive, even though the goal is always the same - crab. In this season, we get to watch the interplay between the crews under extremely icy conditions; and thankfully it is nothing like the so called "reality TV". This is true to life stuff, nobody is trying to be a hero and some don't even quite make it. The harsh realities of this deadliest job keep you on the edge of your seat for hours on end, and you'll find yourself laughing at moments such as the FV Time Bandit effectively going surfing. What you are really observing is a fascinating insight into these guys' lives, and just what they do to make a living. Alot of people will warm to the personalities of people like Sig Hansen and his brother Edgar; for some inexplicable reason everyone loves the FV Northwestern. Mike Rowe does the narration for this series as usual (also spawning millions who all say in their deepest voice "The vast Bering Sea"), and as usual the narration explains very well what is happening. Good choice of background music which adds to the tension of what is happening. Overall, thoroughly enjoyable. I watched 5 minutes of this show on TV and changed the channel, the next week I watched it and was completely hooked. Can't wait for season 3 to be released now."
More Adventures in Lobster Fishing

"I was eagerly anticipating Season 2 of "Deadliest Catch" for more than one reason: firstly, I feel as if I really know all these guys and wanted to see what new adventures they were having and, secondly, I use the show as an example of "alternative careers" for my students where I teach business courses at an inner-city high school in Rhode Island. It is a true eye-opener for them as well as being entertaining! (Ironically, last spring, after showing a few of Season 1's episodes, one of my students lost her dad who was swept overboard while lobster fishing off the RI coast - his body was never found. It certainly reinforced how true "Deadliest Catch" really is.)
I highly recommend the DVD for those who want to expand their knowledge and experiences while being entertained. I plan on buying "Ice Truckers" next, having heard it is just as fascinating."
Great Show! This is Reality

"I love this show and was so happy be able to watch this show anytime. The reality of this job is crazy, and the people that do the jobs must be crazy to do it, I say that in the best possible way. Watching this show is some what humbling, and I would tell anyone that wants to watch a show that is real to the core then get this show !"
