So much for Deadliest Catch

**** you Discovery Channel.

Three 'Deadliest Catch' Captains Quit Show, Report Says


Published September 29, 2010 | FoxNews.com

Three ship captains from Discovery's reality series "Deadliest Catch" have quit, the Hollywood Reporter reports.

After being sued by Discovery for not working on a planned spin-off, Capts. Johnathan and Andy Hillstrand said bye-bye to the network. They were joined by Capt. Sig Hansen.

"We have been through a lot over the past year and unfortunately given the current situation with Discovery we are unable to continue participating in 'Deadliest Catch,'" the fishermen said in a joint written statement. "It has been a fantastic ride, and we wish the best to all of the amazing and supportive 'Catch' fans we have met over the years."

The Hillstrands are being sued for $3 million by the cable network, which claims they scuttled the spin-off "Hillstranded" by failing to finish the series.

The Hillstrands' lawyer said the lawsuit could force them to sell their boats and fire their crews.

Hansen joined the walk-out, saying, "I want people to know the captains stand together, and me and my brothers support them 100 percent."
Hansen is captain of the Northwestern on "Deadliest Catch." The Hillstrands captain the Time Bandit.

This has been a tough year for "Deadliest Catch" captains. In February, show favorite and Cornelia Marie captain Phil Harris died of a massive stroke at age 53.

Liked the Hillstrands but losing them wouldn't have been a big deal IMO. Hansen on the other hand? That is another story.

I like how they managed to throw in the nautical term "scuttled" to describe the show not being made. lol

That said, that show was on its last legs anyhow... especially after Phil's death.

Discovery has had problems with other Captains in the past. Some have quit the show because they said the editing took things way out of context.

Agreed. Phil was the heart and soul of the show, IMO. I doubt if it would have lasted past another season, but it would have been nice to see them wrap it up somehow.

I can't imagine they'd even attempt to go on with just Keith (douchebag) and a new bunch.

The Harris boys future was going to draw me into another season, however I won't watch the show for them alone.

Does the concept of "picking your battles" mean anything to you? In a legal sense, sure, they broke a contract. But what kind of ****ING IDIOT makes the decision to sue them? What did the suits at Discovery think would happen? I mean, seriously, are you surprised by the way the captains reacted?

Discovery ends up with a PR nightmare and kills the goose that laid the golden egg on top of it. Brilliant!

Losing their No. 1 rated show and alienating viewers will end up costing them alot more than $3 million.

I got into the first couple of seasons, but after a while, it got a bit boring. It's:

YAY LOTS OF CRABS

"ya, today was a great day"

NOOOOOO, ONLY 3 CRABS

"this just sucks, we out here risking our lives for 3 crabs, bad day"

YAY, A LOT OF CRABS!!! WOOO HOOO!!

"This is why we are out here"

NOOOO, NOT MANY CRABS!

"**** this"

I feel the same way about Ice Road Truckers. It's interesting, but eventually it devolves into:

"OMG that's scary! Is he gonna make it?"

(cue dramatic music and editing)

"Oh, he made it."
