Deadliest Catch

When I think about American pop culture, I think about the T.V show Deadliest Catch. This is my favorite T.V show because their is never a dull moment in the show. Their is always something happening such as a big storm nailing the fishing fleet, boats breaking down, and injuries to the deckhands.

This show plays an influence in my life because it helps influence me to obtain a college degree and work hard to earn it. Even their many of the boats are family owned and passed down from generation to generation, many of their helping deckhands don't have college degrees. The only these deckhands earn an income is risking their lives fishing in the deadliest waters of the Bearing Sea. They work months at a time threw rough conditions, and work for 24 hours straight at times. This helps influence me to get a degree so I don't have to go threw those hardships.


  1. I love that show. i like how there are so many boats to watch that there is always something dramatic happening. like you said, there is never a dull moment.

  2. I prefer fishing from the shore.

  3. Oh I love this show, there is always something crazy happening. They are very brave man I would have been too scared to go that far into the water.
