SEASON 1 - Forty-foot waves, freezing temperatures and a near 100-percent injury rate. Crab fishing off the Alaskan coast on the icy Bering Sea is one of the worlds most dangerous jobs. But its also one of the most lucrative, offering tens of thousands of dollars for a few days work. Each year over 250 boats converge on Dutch Harbor, Alaska to battle harsh conditions and intense competition in the frenzied search for an undersea jackpot. In this gripping 10-part series, witness firsthand the trials of fi shings toughest crews, as Discovery Channel follows the men who follow the money to the edge of the world... and beyond.
SEASON 2 - October in Dutch Harbor means only one thing: king crab season, and a chance to bring home the big bucks. With Bering Sea weather reports warning of some of the roughest conditions seen in years, a massive storm system is moving in, threatening to wreak havoc on the crabbing fl eet. With last seasons tragedy of the Big Valley still a sobering reminder of the danger the crews face every day, the captains must decide whether to shove off, or batten down the hatches and weather the intense fury of nature in their quest for a lucrative underwater jackpot.
HAIRIEST MOMENTS ON THE HIGH SEAS - This DVD features the roughest and toughest moments from the hit series Deadliest Catch. From unforgiving storms to freak accidents on deck, the captains and their crews tackle each situation differently with some ending on a positive note and some in tragedy. Lessons are learnt and relationships are tested in these times of despair on the Bering Sea but the men push on to land the big crab and ultimately get rewarded.
LEGEND OF THE NORTHWESTERN - At the start of the 2012 King Crab season, Captain Sig Hansen squared off with younger brother Edgar, who was trying to take over the captains chair from Sig. The fight was fueled by bad blood that had been brewing for decades, a fight that started in 1977, when father Sverre first built the infamous 125-foot F/V Northwestern. Raised in Norway, Sverre learned from his father a style of fishing that was highly successful, but brutal on the crew. Follow the Hansen family during the summer off season as they try to juggle the Northwesterns tendering operation (where Sigs daughter is a deckhand) and their own family obligations.
