I was introduced to the Deadliest Catch (a reality show about crab fishermen) on the Discovery Channel by Angelia after the first season. I caught up with the shows by watching a marathon of shows on my on-demand channel, started the second season fresh, and have watched the show religiously ever since.
You can't watch the show without getting to know the captain of each ship and their small crews. They become as familiar as the ever popular stars of daytime soaps. Captain Phil Harris of the Cornelia Marie was my favorite.
Captain Harris died Feb. 9, a week and half after suffering a massive stroke on his beloved fishing vessel, Cornelia Marie.
I don't know if the show will be the same without him. It lagged a bit when ol' Captain was off a season with a blood clot in his lung.
I am honestly going to miss the old Captain.
