Deadliest Catch: Redemption Day

Filed under: reviews — Tags: — gina64 @ 1:15 pm

Discovery continued their remarkably restrained and respectful coverage of the passing of Captain Phil Harris with last night’s episode. It is a rare thing to see something so heartbreakingly real on so-called “reality TV” as the scene where Phil apologizes to Josh for not being a better father and kisses his hand and places it on Josh’s face. Discovery Channel deserves an Emmy next year just for this episode, and especially for the final montage of the stormy Bering Sea cut with Captain Phil’s last hours. Amazing television.
