Real Reality – Men in the water on Deadliest Catch: Dungeon Cove

dungeon-cove-cg-alertLast nights showing of Dungeon Cove brought reality to the forefront of the viewing public when they interjected the tragedy of the fishing vessel Eagle III into the program. The Coast Guard put an alert out over the radio advising of three men in the water and they ask all mariners to keep an eye out for them and report any sightings. We posted some of the heartbreaking articles here, and the comments made by many were of shock, sadness, and despair as fishermen and friends reacted. Of course, there was also generosity through fundraisers to bring aid for those left behind and prayers. Lots of prayers. It’s what we do. This reality show is as close to it as it comes, and the emotion of the people America is watching is on display, uninhibited. This is the link to the articles we posted, and this link takes you to an article with a short video trailer. The Coast Guard alert is hair raising like it always is. Reality. 20:46

But I’m a bit worried that the show will focus too much on hyped-up drama. But it’s early yet, so we’ll have more opportunities to see how “Dungeon Cove” develops. For now, here’s a look at what viewers were saying on Twitter last night about the first episode of “Deadliest Catch: Dungeon Cove”: Read the rest here, and view a bunch of images! 19:12
