Johnathan Hillstrand Needs Your Help

A while back Johnathan Hillstrand had asked for help for a friend's family, which if you know Johnathan, you know he doesn't usually do this type of thing.

Evidently some sick and twisted fan committed to sending a large amount of money and it was all just a scam to try and meet Johnathan or get close to him. So now weeks have been wasted and this young man and his family still need help.

The scam. If you know this sick woman, please turn her into the police. She needs help.

You can donate to help Thomas Doty and his family by visiting HealThomas. Time is critical for this young man and his family. Please help spread the word.

"Looking Ahead"

Mike and all the captains Bill, Sig, Keith, and Andy  are at the table. Mike says he wants to look at what lies ahead because there are going to be a lot of changes on a lot of boats. Captain Bill says he would fire them all every year. Mike, you are really a glass half full kind of guy aren't you. Mike, I don't think you will fire them all. I think you will keep some of them. You had a lot of close calls this year. They go to the clip of Warren Hicks getting hit.with the pot. Captain Bill said the guy wasn't paying attention. It was kind of his fault.

Deadliest Catch Season 8 Episode 16 Recap

"The Bitter, Bloody End"

Wow! You can say that again. I didn't notice the title until now. LOL Very appropriate. What a season finale. I would say they saved all the good stuff for the end but it was really a lot of bad stuff. This season needs to go down in the books as one of the worst ever if not the worst. I'm looking forward to a better season next year.

This episode has a content warning at the beginning that it contains graphic images which some viewers might find disturbing. You know that's not a good sign. I don't remember normally seeing that before anyway.

Deadliest Catch After the Catch Episode 5 Recap

"Fishermen's Code"

At the table Mike Rowe, Andy Hillstrand, Sig Hansen, Edgar Hansen and Keith Colburn. Mike Rowe turns to Sig and says he saw something in his face watching the last episode that makes him wonder if the pucker factor wasn't a little higher than usual. Sig, just a little bit higher. Mike, on a scale of 1-10? Sig, 10, without a question. Captain Keith does an example of a slack tank with a glass, showing how the water sloshes back and forth. Captain Sig explained the series of events that went wrong. The bad weather, the alarm not working. Had Edgar not actually looked in the tank they would have stacked gear over the tank and never knew. There was some kind of air lock problem. They talk about Sig's dad and a boat called the Pacesetter that went down in 1995 because of a slack tank.

Deadliest Catch Season 8 Episode 15 Recap

"Release the Beast"

The full fleet is back on the fishing grounds, in the ice. Elliott thinks the sea is looking like it's going to become unfishable again.

230 to the NW of Dutch Harbor on the Time Bandit. They are getting ready to pull pots set thirty six hours ago. Capt Andy Hillstrand is 40 miles south of St. Paul. He says the ice is way below where they said it would be. How much farther south do I need to go to get away from the ice? Captain Andy is trying to get up to the end of his 25 pot string but he can't because of the ice.

Deadliest Catch After The Catch Episode 4 Recap


Elliott Neese is at the table with Mike Rowe. Great! Rolling eyes and sarcasm. Enough with Elliott already. Mike Rowe tells Elliott he was trying to remember the other captains their first year on the show. Elliott says last year was hard because it was his first year as captain and with cameras in his face. Mike asks what changed? Last year he was telling the cameras a lot to get out of the wheelhouse. What changed? Are you finding your way? Elliott said he got to see the show last year and see what actually comes of all the filming. It's pretty cool to see yourself on TV. Mike says it seems like a new level of personal stuff with you. Why did you let us in? Elliott explains that that's what is going on in his life right now.

Deadliest Catch Season 8 Episode 14 Recap

Deadliest Catch After The Catch Episode 3

"View From Shore"

At the table are Captains Andy, John, Keith, Sig and Elliott Neese. Johnathan is there with oxygen on. He apparently left the hospital to do the show. His idea. Then he went right back after the show was over. Mike Rowe teases him about the bull they call Snowflake. Johnathan says he had a crushed lung, 4 broken ribs one in three places and a hurt pride. Captain Keith says he shouldn't have hurt pride he got on a bull. Elliott, you cowboy'd up. Mike Rowe, you went almost point eight seconds. Everyone is laughing. Captain Sig  the table saying don't make him laugh. Captain Johnathan says you know what there was no lesson to be learned. Andy laughs. Johnathan says he just cowboy'd up. I find it interesting that we didn't see Captain Andy on a bull, with all the horse back riding he does. Was he smart enough not to do it or did they just not show us?

Deadliest Catch Season 8 Episode 13 Recap


The Time Bandit is pulling into the harbor and starts listing. They are all iced up.

The Ramblin' Rose, Wizard, Kodiak and Northwestern are at the dock. They show a picture of a smaller boat that appears to have sunk at the dock. The ice pack has come down to far to crab so the guys are going to head home until it pulls back some. Nick Mavar says ironically this is the nicest day they've had since they have been there.

Jake Anderson is giving Jake Harris a pep talk. Jake Harris doesn't appear to be paying attention. Jake Harris says he has a reputation where he doesn't need to be pushed. Jake Anderson says what is your reputation? It's in the stinker dude! Jake Harris, you guys act like what I'm doing right here is going to benefit me on a multi-million dollar operation that we got going on over there. It ain't nothing like that.

Edgar Hansen hits the switch and the boat goes dark. Time to go home.

Captain Keith and Monte roll the dice to decide whether to keep fishing or not. Captain Keith thinks they can get another week in. They roll the dice, get double fives. They decide to keep fishing. They just delivered 398,000 pounds.

The Time Bandit is coming in with 40,000 pounds of ice on it. Even Travis' mustache has ice on it. Captain Andy can't see out his windows. He yells at Mike Fourtner to clean  the windows so he can see. Neal is in the wheelhouse. The Time Bandit is leaning to the port side. If Captain Andy can get to the dock in time he may be able to secure the boat to counter the list otherwise he risks rolling into the dock and rolling over. Mike Rowe says the skipper has one chance to pull into the dock. They make it. Scotty says that is the closest they've come to rolling over, he was a little scared. Mike Fourtner says in his 14 years on the boat he has had more firsts this season than they have ever had. Mike says that is the scariest tie up he's ever had. Captain Andy thinks the ice is trying to tell him something.

On the Ramblin' Rose. Elliott is talking to one of his kids on the phone. He has been at the dock for three days. Aaron Steiner says he went up to talk to Elliott but he was on the phone and ignored him. This operation seems to be falling apart. Nick Dryden says this is a chicken shit operation. Elliott says the guys are mad they haven't gotten any settlements in six months now. One of the guys called the boat the Rusty Rose. Elliott calls Lenny to tell him the guys are upset about loosing money. Lenny informs Elliott there ain't no money, because you're losing money. He has got to be able to cover expenses. The fact that they can't he blames on Elliott. Lenny tells Elliott every decision that was made was the wrong one. It's a disaster. Elliott tries to explain to Lenny that the guys want to go home. Everyone else is going home. They want a vacation. Lenny tells Elliott he thinks its him that wants to go home not the guys. He says you can't take a vacation in the middle of crab season. Lenny tells him to fly home and if the crew doesn't show back up when it's time to show back up then you don't have a job. Lenny hangs up on him.

Elliott goes and tells the crew they can go home. Elliott leaves to go home. The guys on the boat talk about leaving. They think he cares more about himself than the crew and he brings his family problems to the boat.

On the Seabrooke. They are still fishing. Creeping through an ice flow. They pull up a pot full of crab. 945 jam packed pots. Mac White is impressed. He says that's an Opie mountain. 1075. Junior says he went big everyone else went home. The pots keep coming up full. Even though they are on big pots Junior doesn't set back he says you have to keep moving. The crew doesn't understand why they aren't resetting. Junior says this is the kind of trip that will be legendary.

The Wizard heads out. Captain Keith knows where Junior is fishing so he is going to look for fresh grounds.

Captain Scott wants to fish right up next to the ice.

On the Kodiak they are almost ready to go home. Captain Bill goes to talk to Jason Rainwater before he goes home. He calls him to the wheelhouse. Captain Bill tells Jason every confrontation they have had he has been in. He thinks it would be better if  he finds another boat. Jason wants him to rethink it. Jason asks for one more chance promising not to argue or fight. Captain Bill says no. Jason is not what he is looking for in a deckhand. Jason wishes these guys would go tell Captain Bill to give him a chance. This is a huge deal and bad for his reputation. I guess he should of thought of that before he was fighting with everyone. I don't think they'll go save his butt. 

Elliott gets home to Homer. His kids are happy to see him. Valerie Gunderson their mother, not so much. Val informs him this isn't home. Elliott wants to get his girl friend back. She says he had seven years to get it right, he just couldn't. They start arguing and Valerie asks him to leave. He does. Elliott says he kicked dope way easier than he can kick that girl. He used to do a lot of cocaine and quit it cold turkey. He says he physically hurts not having her.

Captain Sig is home in Seattle Washington. Captain Sig talks about how Jake Anderson has stepped up and Jake Harris has got to understand that other people rely on him.

Josh Harris heads over to see Jake Harris. I could be wrong but that looks like Josh's house. Kind of odd to see him knocking. Jake tells him working on the Northwestern is different and he misses the Cornelia Marie. Jake tells Josh he wants to work with him. He misses him. Josh reminds him they run a straight boat, which Jake says is getting old. Josh says they have to make it work or they are going to be bankrupt.

Jake Anderson drives out to the area where his dad went missing. This is the second time I'm watching this and it is once again it's giving me goose bumps. The remains of Jake's father were found last Tuesday and them airing this this week is just freaky timing I guess. I still can't believe they found his dad so close to where he went missing and they didn't find him before now. Jake complained the police weren't looking. It certainly  makes it seem like that was the case to me. Hopefully now that they have the remains, the family will get some answers to what really happened. I won't say get closure because I don't believe you can ever really get closure. Jake talks about how when they buried Captain Phil he pretended it was his dad too and how his dad never got a funeral. He drives to the place where the truck was found. He says there was blood spatter on the key and the wind shield, when he saw that he knew his dad was killed. Jake says the police can forget about his dad and the community can look the other way, but he will never look the other way.

The Crab Count

Wizard 885,000
Seabrooke 580,250
Northwestern 510,315
Time Bandit 377,125
Kodiak 315,200
Ramblin' Rose 108,300

Captain Keith says he is making the boys dinner. He fills a plate with candy bars and  takes it to them.

Captain Keith has 240 pots he wants to catch 400,000 pounds. If they average 350 a pot they can do it in 8 days. Captain Keith talks about being 3 million dollars in debt 3 years ago. Now it is only half that much. The guys are pulling up nice full pots.

On the Seabrooke. Junior has moved closer to the ice edge. Mac White says the crab like being near the ice. They like that cold water because in the end they are going to be in hot water. LOL They pull up a pot,  it looks pretty small. The pot is full of females and juveniles. Junior says the females are usually in the shallows. He's never seen them out here. Junior says two miles to the east they were getting thousands. He was hoping to top off his tanks with these two strings. Captain Scott is dumb founded. They rail dump a pot. Captain Scott says the glory hole is dried up.

Elliott is home looking at the ice chart. The same one I was looking at all season. That's funny.

Captain Scott had surgery this morning to have a kidney stone removed. Yep he's still getting those darn things. I hope all went well and wish him a speedy recovery. I told him to quit eating rocks, but maybe he's sneaking over to the east coast and eating stone crab.

Johnathan Hillstrand - Time Bandit

I see a lot of people searching Johnathan Hillstrand sick or on oxygen. So in case you haven't seen the episode or didn't read it. Johnathan went bull riding when he was in Breckenridge Colorado for After the Catch. The bull bucked him off, he broke 4 ribs in 7 places and punctured a lung. That info is straight from him via Twitter.

Hopefully he will be back to 100% soon. But if you've ever had a broken rib then you know they smart for a while. Feel better soon Captain John. I hope you finally got your iPad.

Today's Soaps

I just want to say the Young & the Restless if freaking me out with this aging of half the children and not aging the others. It's very weird. I want to see my sexy guys. Not these little kids. We need more Cane and they need to bring back Chance and Ronan.

You would think with the canceling of All My Children and One Life to Live they would have kept the best writers on General Hospital. I can't believe the best they could come up with the new babies being born was yet another baby swap and DNA test swap. I mean seriously guys. I don't want another show to get canceled. You could have done better.

"Nowhere to go but down"

The show starts out with Captain Andy Hillstrand screaming get everybody up here, there's ice everywhere. The Time Bandit is pulling up to the dock to tie up and a man falling over board. This time the fall looked like he made a good attempt of hanging on to the dock, but failed due to the snow and ice.

In Dutch Harbor the Ramblin' Rose and Seabrooke are getting ready for Opies. It's the harshest winter in decades. There is 160 million dollars of Opilio Crab to catch. Captain Keith Colburn says it's probably the biggest crab season they have had for price and volume for the last fifteen years. Remember the Red King Crab season was cut so they need to catch all the opies they can to make up for it. Captain Scott Campbell, Jr says if they can't get the crab in and delivered, there is going to be a lot of guys in trouble.

I Wonder Who Got Hurt? - Deadliest Catch

In an article released February 3rd, the Unalaska Medical Center has banned the Deadliest Catch crews from filming. This must mean someone got hurt right? I sure hope not or if they did I hope it wasn't serious.

I think the Seabrooke & the Ramblin' Rose were the boats in Dutch on the 3rd.

Quite an interesting article, It sounds like someone on the film crew was pretending to be a patient. Todd Stanley was that you? LOL

Just Saw The Top 20 Rudest Cities List

It's a pretty interesting list. Washington, DC is on the list. No surprise there. I've lived near there I would totally agree with that.

Also on the list was Anchorage, AK and Seattle, WA. I was quite surprised by this since so many of our favorite fisherman live in Seattle. I don't recall a lot of them living in Anchorage, AK.

This is a reminder. John and Andy Hillstrand (Captains of the Time Bandit) will be on Who Wants To Be A Millionaire Feb 2 & 3. That's Thursday & Friday. Set your DVR's!

You can now get some of the Time Bandit gear and books on Amazon. Go to Amazon and search Time Bandit or I searched Time Bandit Hillstrand to narrow the search down some.

They have the Time Bandit book in hardcover for $10.00. When I looked there were still 17 left at Amazon. So if you haven't read their book yet, this is a great chance to get it. There are some other places that have the book on there for even less. And yes there is a Kindle or reader version.

Grey's Anatomy January 5, 2012 Recap

I'm working on getting caught up from the holidays. Hopefully everything will be caught up in the next day or two.

I still can't believe they killed Henry off. They seriously have to quit offing the good looking guys on this show. George, Denny, Henry it's just wrong!

The last episode ended with the ambulance Meredith Grey and Alex Karev were in getting hit by a car. This one starts off there. They get out of the ambulance and find a panicked teenage girl named Lilly, who other than being really upset seems okay. Meredith hands her the baby so she can check on the other people. Meredith instructs Lilly how to squeeze the ambu bag to keep the baby breathing.
