R8ers: Is this so fuggin hard to do? Lazy fugg!

Sad news this morning: Phil Harris, captain of the Cornelia Marie fishing boat featured on Deadliest Catch, has died in Alaska. He was 53.Harris suffered a massive stroke on Jan. 29 while the Cornelia Marie was in port at St. Paul Island, Alaska. The boat captain was flown to Anchorage for surgery.
"It is with great sadness that we say goodbye to our dad - Captain Phil Harris. Dad has always been a fighter and continued to be until the end," sons Josh and Jake Harris said in a statement on the Cornelia Marie site (http://www.corneliamarie.com/). "For us and the crew, he was someone who never backed down."
In a statement the network said, "Discovery mourns the loss of dear friend and colleague Captain Phil Harris. He was more than someone on our television screen. Phil was a devoted father and loyal friend to all who knew him. We will miss his straightforward honesty, wicked sense of humor and enormous heart. We share our tremendous sadness over this loss with the millions of viewers who followed Phil's every move. We send our thoughts and prayers to Phil's sons Josh and Jake and the Cornelia Marie crew."

Holy shit. Just watched an episode (maybe season finale?) where Jake was stealing Phil's meds because he's an "addict."

Blindsided me. As much as I hate it, it combines two of my favorite reality shows. Intervention and Deadliest Catch.

That being said... there's a lot of talk about how scripted this show has become. I'm a little dubious of the scene where Phil supposedly catches Jake. I think Jake probably had a painkiller addiction, then the producers decided to stage a scene where he gets caught stealing Phil's meds. Anyone know the scoop?

Ahh. Still, what's the word on Jake? If it's scripted, he's pretty ballsy letting the producers script him that way. His old man is about to die, and he's swiping his pills (even if they are pain pills and unrelated to his illness)? That's unflattering to say the least. If it was a "real" moment when Phil catches him, then that's some pretty badass (and powerful) reality TV.

HOnestly, I never assume the stuff on the boats is scripted. Never really thought of it that way. The other stuff is pretty painful to watch sometimes.

Having said that, I know I had a lump in my throat watching the last 5 minutes. Didn't see the Jake thing coming, though the signs were there. I hope it wasn't scripted because that would be a pretty shitty thing for a "reality" show to do.

Same here. I missed a couple of seasons (which is no problem because they replay all of the seasons all the time). I missed it though. I am amazed at how much adversity they have to overcome to get those little suckers and the razor thin edge they slide on between life and death. I know I could never do it.

We have "Deadliest Catch" night at my house every Tuesday. I recorded "After the Catch" tonight, but haven't watched it yet. I really don't want to see Phil go next week even though I know he's already gone. I don't think there is any scripting with this show (at least I really hope not). Amazing how much these guys seem like people you know when you've watched for years. Probably gonna shed a tear or two next week. Call me a pussy...........don't care. Phil was the man.

The Phil / Jake stuff at the end was definitely intense. But it was also crazy to hear about the other Jake (Anderson, on the Northwestern) talk about how his dad has been missing for several weeks, and then Sig getting the call from Jake's mom, saying they found his truck on an abandoned logging road, and to keep Jake busy. That poor kid has been through some rough stuff in his life. During the marathon over Memorial Day weekend, I caught the episode from a couple years ago where he got the news that his sister had died. Heart-wrenching stuff.

The part with his sons is, for me, the hardest part. Josh seems to have a modicum of a clue when it comes to life, but Jake is so lost. And to have had that incident with the prescription drugs and him confessing addiction just adds to it. I'm sure they reconcile before he dies but it's rough.

Did you notice the shots of the black bird while they were hauling Phil off the boat? Nice touch, fuckos. Of course, we already KNOW HE'S DEAD, so is it really necessary to foreshadow his demise with the Edgar Allan Poe bullshit? I'm thinking the death of one of the key people on the show in front of his kids will probably be dramatic enough.

At least they seemed to be in a good state right before the stroke looking at the pictures from 20 years ago.

I hope the son(s) don't feel as it was their fault that he had the stroke because of the argument they had previously.

That would be horrible!

Well, I've been watching the show for years, and he was my favorite among the captains. It's not like I'm just tuning in for the drama.

And yes, it commercializes his death. But it also commercialized his life. He knew the cameras were rolling and had no problem with it.

But I'm sure it will be very difficult to watch.

And yes, it commercializes his death. But it also commercialized his life. He knew the cameras were rolling and had no problem with it.

But I'm sure it will be very difficult to watch.

i am sure it will be difficult.. but you know discovery is playing this for everything they can get out of it.. i bet some one at discovery is betting on having the highest ratings that the show has ever seen.. or one of the highest anyway.. kinda sad but what can you do.

sad deal, he was my favorite as well ... I have watched em all... the show isn't the same without him, guess the time bandit or northwestern will have to be the fav now... kinda like old edgar on the northwestern as my favorite ...

also read a story today that that Jake kid on the northwestern whos dad was missing and they found his truck on the logging road , it is said in this article he was going to buy street oxycotin and never came home and foul play is expected

It should be a good two hours of TV, which is hard to find these days.

I have only seen this show occasionally, but found it entertaining. Honestly I didn't know Phil Harris had passed away until I read this thread.

Sad... it reminds me how lucky I am too still have my Mom with us. She had a massive stroke about 7 years ago and we as a family went through so many of the same trials and emotions. She was in rehab for over 6 months and then a year after getting out of the hospital she was diagnosed with breast cancer.

Fought through two separate rounds of that and is still here to randomly call and say I love you.

Same here, been hooked since day 1, always thought Sid was the Capt.Kirk of them, young, brash, not scared to take a chance.
Like the guys who did it in wooden boats before him.

And Phil, hell, losing him, wow, show just wont be the same.

Missed it tonight going over a custom ceiling design with my currant client. :banghead:
,and I ain't getting up at 1 to see it either.

,and I ain't getting up at 1 to see it either.Yeah I've been a hooked from day one guy as well. Those of us that have watched it for years think of these guys as people we know. My favorite boat is probably the Time Bandit with Jonathan and Andy. Love Phil and Sig to though. Can't stand Keith on the Wizard. Same with Bill on the Kodiak.

I had heard all day and all week it was going to be a 2 hour special tonight, but watching it it was only the regular one hour. They then said at the end of tonights episode next week is a 2 hour special. It is already the highest rated show on Tuesday nights by a wide margin. I'm sure these last few episodes have been through the roof. I even heard advertising for it on the radio several times today.

I'd hate to be Jake.

To not be there but at a rehab clinic when his dad died will haunt him for the rest of his life. At least it would me.

That would bug me too. But at least Phil told him he was happy that he was doing what he was doing.

Great show. brought some tears to my eyes...

When they showed clips from 2007, you could see just how far Harris's look and health had declined in 3 years. He looked like he had aged 15 years in 3.

They handled it pretty tastifully (more tastifully than I thought they would).

I think next week's episode will be worse, as we see everybody dealing with the aftermath.

Yeah, it'd be tough. But I think he can take solace in the fact that Phil was happy that he went. And had he stayed, who knows what kind of spiral he could have fallen into and may have never gone to treatment. A treatment center may have been the best place for him.

I said the same thing to my wife while we were watching it. That would have been fucked up on a monumental level.

The most moving part to me was the last (I think it was last) conversation between Josh and Phil. When Phil told Josh he was sorry for not being there as a father. That kind of stuff is just gut wrenching. I'm glad when he died, he could die hearing his son say what Josh said though.

It's funny, like someone said earlier we feel like we know these guys and that makes it more emotional. For as sad as I was when I first heard Phil had passed, I am proud of Josh for the way he (at least when they've shown us on TV) has handled this whole thing. He's really been a man about this, taking care of his dad and the boat and Jake.

Yep, liked when he shoved lard ass over at the `Capt`s meeting`` in the wrecked hull and all he could blubber as he dodged going stright into the fire pit was `Well don`t be try`n to call me your friend anymore` ROFL
Both Sig and Phil were bent over laughing till tthe camera caught them and they re-acted all concerned and stered with the `hey easy, break it up stuff`
