'Deadliest Catch' narrator Mike Rowe offers an 'Alternative Catch' commentary on a fishing father and son
If Mike Rowe wrote his own narration, "Deadliest Catch" might be a very different show.
Via his Facebook page, the former "Dirty Jobs" host, who has done double duty as the narrator of Discovery's crab-fishing reality juggernaut since its earliest days, decided to give his own voiceover commentary a tweak.
Apparently he wasn't entirely satisfied with how the description of a conflict between fishing vessel Capt. "Wild Bill" Wichrowski and his deckhand son, Zack Larson, was written.
"Last week on 'Deadliest Catch,' some of you will recall that Zack Larson on the Cape Caution was pretty well lambasted by the narration. Frankly, I'm sympathetic, and want to make good on my offer to present a different view of what might have been broadcast. Nothing about the original scene has been altered but the narration.
Tell me if you think it makes a difference ... 'ALTERNATE CATCH: ZACK LARSON'S SECRET SACRIFICE'"
